Will Smith Offers Public Apology To Chris Rock...And He (Kinda) Responds
Four months after “The Slap,” Will Smith issued a social media apology to Chris Rock. He started off by saying that while he’d reached out to Chris, the comedian isn’t ready to talk to him and will reach out when he is. He also apologized to Chris’ mom and the rest of his family, specifically Tony Rock, with whom he had a great relationship prior to the incident.
The Oscar winner said he’s spent the last three months going over the moment and trying to figure out the nuances that caused it. “There’s no part of me that thinks that’s the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults,” he said. He also apologized to his family and made it a point to say that Jada Pinkett-Smith did NOT have anything to do with the decision he made. He went on to apologize to his fellow nominees for taking the spotlight off what should have been the biggest night of their lives.
One of the most painful things about the incident for Will was letting people down. He says he’s been working on being remorseful without being ashamed because he’s human. He ended with, “If you hang on, I promise we’ll be able to be friends again.”

Britney Spears Wrote a Book . . . But It Won't Come Out Because of a Paper Shortage???
Britney Spears finished her tell-all memoir, but we won't get to read it anytime soon . . . because there's not enough paper. (???)

Her book was originally supposed to come out in January, but now it's up in the air, until this whole paper thing gets figured out.
