CLEVELAND — Prince is still advocating for love and acceptance, Drew Brees' wife Brittany opens up about her husband's flag comments, and how the cast and crew of 'Friends' are rectifying their past mistakes. These are the top headlines around Hollywood on Monday.
The artist formerly known as Prince may be gone, but his legacy is living on through his words.
Proving the icon was always ahead of his time, his estate released a handwritten note from before Prince's passing that speaks on racism and acceptance.
'Nothing more ugly in the whole wide world than INTOLERANCE (between) Black, white, red, yellow, boy or girl. INTOLERANCE' the note reads.
The singer's estate captioned the picture, 'Prince dedicated his life to speaking out against injustice, advocating for black excellence, and spreading the message of "Love 4 One Another".'
The singer would have been 62 this past Sunday. To honor him, friends and bandmates through the years released a cover of his song 'The Cross.'
While Prince is still impacting the world from the beyond, Drew Brees and his wife Brittany are learning something new here and now.
After Drew made some controversial comments last week about kneeling and disrespecting the flag, not only has the former New Orleans Saints QB apologized, his wife has gotten in on it.
Brittany made a post from the couple's foundation's Instagram page discussing the importance of learning from your mistakes and hearing rather than just listening.
'WE ARE THE PROBLEM' the wife and mom of four wrote, 'to all of our friends and anyone we hurt ...we will do better.. We are sorry.'
In the post, Brittany stressed that as white Americans, it is their job to do more than just educate their children on over racism, and to actually listen when people say there is a problem.
She said that they will continue to learn and do better in the future.
Speaking of learning and growing, 'Friends' creator Marta Kauffman says that she 'didn't do enough' for diversity on the show and now she regrets it.
"I just wish I knew then what I know now," the writer and producer wrote. "I would’ve made very different decisions."
Ironically, Kauffman did know about the show 'Living Single,' which features a ragtag group of young black single friends in New York City, which many believe 'Friends' is a ripoff off.
'Living Single' debuted in 1993, and 'Friends' hit the air exactly one year later in 1994.
No one can really say for sure, but the idea that 'Friends' might have ripped off 'Living Single' popped up after one of the show's stars, David Schwimmer, talked about pushing for an all-black reboot of 'Friends.'
Queen Latifah would like a word, Ross.
