Fans may wonder why after more than 20 years with RCA, singer Monica decided to part ways. While on set, guest hosting at The Real, the 36-year-old singer explained to HipHollywood what really caused the split, and it all boiled down to more freedom.

“Now I get to do other things that I wasn’t able to do. I get to [appear on The Real], I get to get back into film, I get to do other things.”

But while she is happy about the freedom she has as an independent artist, Monica says the decision was difficult because RCA was like family to her.

“Going in at 12 years old, you meet people that become family; there is no being associates after that long. They watched me grow, they watched me graduate from high school … they were there for me for a large part of my life.”

The mother of three did tell us, however, that she is getting back in the studio, and fans should be on the lookout for new music very soon. “Whatever I do musically I will share on my Facebook Page and anywhere I choose at this point because it all belongs to me, so I’m going in with some of the producers that I love, of course Missy [Elliott], of course Timbaland, of course Polow da Don.”


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
