From Lizzo's backups backing her up to a big week of ups and downs for Britney Spears, here's what's happening in entertainment.

Lizzo's Crew Speaks

Lizzo is receiving public support on Instagram amid allegations of creating a hostile work environment and sexual harassment. 

A note signed by "the Big Grrls and Big Boiiis," her backup dancers, says that their experience has been "beyond just #Special!"

"The commitment to character and culture taking precedence over every movement and moment has been one of the Greatest lessons and Blessings that we could possibly ask for," the message continued.

Lizzo has been mostly quiet about the lawsuit since her initial address earlier this month when she said the former employees hurling the accusations "have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional.


Britney Album?

Amid news of a pending divorce, Britney Spears is set to record a new album.

Page Six reported that collaborations with "some big artists" are in the works as she prepares for a writers boot camp. Spears is also set to release a memoir in October titled The Woman in Me.

News of the album comes the same week that Spears' husband Sam Asghari filed for divorce. He asked the public to be kind as reports floated about him seeking spousal support and a renegotiated prenuptial agreement. 

Asghari cited irreconcilable differences amid rumors that Spears cheated. 

Don Lemon Speaks

Former CNN host Don Lemon finally spoke in depth about being ousted from the network in April. 

During an interview on the Pivot podcast with Kara Swisher, Lemon said he felt vindicated after former CNN president Chris Licht was fired in June.

"Read the story, and you speak to the people who are there, and I think people get what happened. All you have to do is read The Atlantic story, read the subsequent stories that came out and how it played out," he said.

As far as next steps go, Lemon said he will likely end up in the digital space or on a streaming platform.
