Morgan Wallen is opening up about an n-word scandal that has become an unfortunate lowlight of his blossoming career. While speaking to "Good Morning America" on July 23, the singer said, "I was around some of my friends, and we just … we say dumb stuff together. And it was — in our minds, it's playful … that sounds ignorant, but it — that's really where it came from … and it's wrong." Morgan said he didn't have a clear understanding of the meaning of the word and the pain behind it. "I think I was just ignorant about it," he said. "I don't think I sat down and was, like, 'Hey, is this right or is this wrong?'" In speaking about how it hurts Black people, he said, "I don't know how to put myself in their shoes because I'm not, but I do understand. Especially when I say I'm using it playfully or whatever, ignorantly, I understand that that must sound, you know, like, 'He doesn't understand.'"

Back and forth
Megyn Kelly is causing controversy again. On July 19, the former NBC host accused tennis star Naomi Osaka of being a hypocrite for appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue but refusing to participate in press conferences at the French Open. Naomi left the Open and withdrew from Wimbledon to focus on her mental health. Responding to Megyn's criticism, Noami tweeted, "Seeing as you're a journalist I would've assumed you would take the time to research what the lead times are for magazines, if you did that you would've found out I shot all of my covers last year. Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan." The tennis champ them seemingly blocked Megyn. "Poor [Noami] blocked me while taking a shot at me," Megyn Kelly tweeted afterward. "She is apparently arguing that she shot her many covers b/4 publicly claiming she was too socially anxious to deal w/press. Truth is she just doesn't like Qs she can't control. Admit it."
Dr. Dre is gonna have to dish out some serious cash to his ex… perhaps forever. On July 22, court records showed that the hip hop mogul has been ordered to pay his estranged wife, Nicole Young, $293,306 per month in spousal support beginning on Aug. 1. He'll have to continue dolling out the money until she remarries or enters into a domestic partnership. She had initially asked for $2 million in monthly spousal support. The court reserves the right to change the financial order in the future. In June 2020, Nicole filed divorce paperwork, ending her 24-year marriage to the rapper. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. In the days that followed, Dre revealed that they signed a prenuptial agreement back in 1996 and argued that their division of property should be governed by their prenup. Soon after, Nicole challenged that prenup and said she "unwillingly" signed the documents amid pressure from the rapper and his team.
Think Britney Spears is done ripping her conservatorship or her family? Think again. On July 20, the pop star took to Instagram to give her followers an update on her mindset. "So I said 'life goes on' in one of my recent posts but it's always easier said than done !!!!!" she wrote. "In that moment that's what felt was the easiest to say but I think we all know that I will never be able to let go and fully move on until I've said all I needed to say … and I'm not even close !!!! I was told to stay quiet about things for so long and I finally feel like I'm just getting here!!!!" This message came a few days after she seemed to call out her little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, for not being a good support system for her. "There's nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support … there's nothing worse than that," Britney wrote.
