Netflix’s ‘GLOW’ Season 4 Cancelled Due To Pandemic


Netflix dropped the surprise announcement that it has cancelled its Emmy-nominated comedy “GLOW.”  The series had previously been renewed for a fourth season, and had already gone into production before the COVID-19 pandemic halted its progress. A Netflix spokesperson said in a statement: “We’ve made the difficult decision not to do a fourth season of GLOW due to COVID, which makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging.” 

Production on “GLOW’s” fourth and final season resumed in Los Angeles in February, however only one episode was completed before stay-at-home orders went into effect in L.A. County, shutting down production. “GLOW” co-creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch shed additional light on why the show had to be canceled: “COVID has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus. COVID also apparently took down our show. Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of GLOW.”  

The ensemble series presented a fictionalized account of the 1980s show “The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” a group of women and a couple of men who try their best to make it in the world by faking it in the ring. Season 3 of GLOW began streaming in August 2019 and ended on a cliffhanger that saw the women leave their Las Vegas lifestyle behind with many characters going their separate ways.

Eddie Van Halen Dies at 65 After Long Battle With Cancer


Legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen has died. The co-founder of the band Van Halen died Tuesday morning after a years-long battle with throat cancer, his son Wolf confirmed on Twitter. He was 65.

Wolf posted the news of his father’s death on Twitter: “I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning. He was the best father I could ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift. My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.” Van Halen’s ex-wife and Wolf’s mother, Valerie Bertinelli, replied to the tweet with several broken heart emojis. Van Halen and Bertinelli were married for 20 years.

Sources say that Van Halen had a rapid decline in health over the past three days and that the cancer had “spread to all his organs.” His wife Janie Liszewski, son Wolf and ex-wife Valerie were by his side at the time of his death. The iconic guitarist had battled cancer for more than 10 years; he previously defeated tongue cancer in 2002 after a two-year battle.

Van Halen is one of the top 20 best-selling artists of all time and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.

Rihanna Apologizes To Muslim Community For Offensive Song Played At Fenty Fashion Show


Rihanna has issued an apology to the Muslim community after receiving backlash for using sacred Islamic verses in a song played at her fashion show. The star-studded Savage X Fenty fashion show debuted on Amazon Prime on Oct. 2 and was praised for its inclusivity, featuring models of different sizes, races, and genders.

However criticism arose after viewers took offense to a portion of the show in which models clad in lingerie danced to a song which sampled audio of someone reading the Hadith, the holy narrative of the Prophet Mohammad that is deeply revered by the Muslim community.

Rihanna wrote in an Oct. 6 Instagram story: “I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show. I would more importantly like to apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake. We understand that we have hurt many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and I’m incredibly disheartened by this! I do not play with any kind of disrespect toward God or any religion and therefore the use of the song in our project was completely irresponsible! Moving forward we will make sure nothing like this ever happens again. Thank you for your forgiveness and understanding.”
