Entertainment:Liam Gallagher left with bloody nose after helicopter fall

Liam Gallagher has split his nose open after he fell out of a helicopter last night (17.09.21).

The 48-year-old rocker has been left battered and bruised after he accidentally took a tumble out of the rotorcraft and plunged to the ground following his headline set at the Isle of Wight Festival, held at Seaclose Park, in Newport on Friday.

Taking to his Twitter account, the ‘Wall of Glass’ hitmaker uploaded a photograph of his bandaged hooter and wrote: “So check this out I fell out the helicopter last night you couldn’t rite it all good who said RnR is dead Keith moon eat your drum skin out C’mon you know LG x (sic)”

Fans were quick to check in on the former Oasis singer, with one wishing him a “speedy recovery” and another asking him how he managed to fall out of a helicopter and escape with just a gash on his nose and a split lip, to which Liam replied: “Who knows?”

When a follower questioned how far he’d fallen, Liam joked: “100 thousand feet you bumbaclart (sic)”

The ‘Now That I’ve Found You’ singer even teased that his bloody snout will feature on the cover of his next album.

He tweeted: “Got the cover shot for Nxt album c’mon you nose LG x (sic)”

Just before he shared the state of his face with his fans, Liam was clearly thinking about how lucky he was to escape relatively unscathed.

He wrote: “Life is precious let’s make it happen I’m not messing about we only get to do it once I’m coming in a mess I’m going out in style c’mon you know I have no time for balloon Balloon knots (sic)”

He also thanked his fans who watched him perform on the main stage at the Isle of Wight Festival, branding the crowd “bonkers.”

He penned: “Isle of white you were bonkers I love you stay safe and remember it’s not where your from it’s how many coronas you can have while eating mushy peas LG x (sic)”

Newa Post:Tesla to reverse solar price hikes for some customers

Tesla, Inc. solar customers who were hit with price hikes earlier this year may be able to get their original rates back, according to a Thursday court document.

The filing with the U.S. district court in San Jose, Calif., on behalf of customer Matthew Amans and “all similarly situated individuals,” says that Tesla’s lawyers informed the plaintiffs’ lawyers that the company had recently launched a program for customers who signed Solar Roof contracts before the April 2021 price changes to “return those customers to their original pricing.”

ELON MUSK SAYS TESLA’S SOLAR PANELS WILL BE SOLD IN BUNDLES WITH POWERWALL

“Plaintiffs’ counsel have requested additional details and advised counsel for Tesla that they believe settlement discussions should commence immediately in order to consider, clarify and formalize certain terms of relief,” the lawyers wrote.

According to Business Insider, Amans’ class-action case filed against Tesla in May came after he was slammed with a $75,000 price hike ahead of the roof’s installation.

The outlet reported at the time that Amans had ordered a Solar Roof for his home in 2020 and signed a contract in March 2021 when he agreed to pay nearly $72,000, however – in April – Tesla then sent him an email saying it was raising the price.

When Amas logged into his account, he saw the new price was $146,462.22, Business Insider said.

Other suits shared similar claims over Solar Roof contracts with Tesla.

GLJ Research CEO Gordon Johnson joins FOX Business’ Charlie Gasparino to discuss Elon Musk’s legal woes.

Tesla’s website says the company has installed the equivalent of 10 million traditional solar panels across 400,000 roofs.

Purchase of the roof requires customers to order the Powerwall home battery as well.

However, in July, Vox reported that Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk admitted that the company would not be able to make enough of the batteries due to the ongoing microchip shortage.

Surprise! Scarlett Johansson, Colin Jost welcome baby boy | Entertainment

Scarlett Johansson is a mom to two now. The “Black Widow” star recently gave birth to a son, Cosmo, with husband Colin Jost, the “Saturday Night Live” star wrote on Instagram Wednesday. This is the first child for the couple, who were married last October.

“Ok, OK, we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much,” was Jost’s brief note.

People magazine first reported the birth of the baby, which came as a shock to many since news of the pregnancy came out only days earlier after Jost reportedly mentioned it in a stand-up set in Connecticut. No other details were provided.

It’s the first child for Jost, 39, who is known for hosting “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live.” Johansson, 36, also has a 6-year-old daughter, Rose, from a previous marriage to Romain Dauriac.

Jost wrote on his Instagram page that privacy would be greatly appreciated and directed “all inquires” to “our publicist @chethinks,” tagging his “Weekend Update” co-host, Michael Che.

How Netflix Is Changing the Entertainment Industry

first began its worldwide expansion in 2016, the streaming service has rewritten the playbook for global entertainment — from TV to film, and soon, to video games.

Global hit series and movies were once nearly all made in Hollywood and exported internationally. Now, thanks to Netflix’s investments in international TV and film, programming from Spain, India, Brazil, and Korea is finding massive audiences around the world.

Netflix figured out that to thrive on an international stage it needed both mass-market programming like “Stranger Things,” as well as local content like “Lupin,” “Money Heist,” and “Sacred Games” that could grab viewers in specific markets.

Read more about how Netflix’s strategy for buying international TV shows is changing, according to producers who have worked with the streamer and its rivals

The strategy helped the streaming service grow its customer base to 209 million paid subscribers globally, as of June.

Its momentum is also reinvigorating production in places like Germany, Mexico, and India, as companies like Disney, WarnerMedia, Apple, Amazon follow Netflix’s lead.

Netflix has reoriented its leadership around its new global model.

The streaming company, cofounded by tech entrepreneur Reed Hastings, promoted content chief Ted Sarandos to co-CEO in 2020, which cemented the importance of content within the organization. Meanwhile, Bela Bajaria, who had been in charge of international non-English TV, took the reins of the overall TV business, and product chief Greg Peters took on additional duties as COO, including streamlining how global teams work together.

The company has also formed an elite team of 23 interdisciplinary execs to help make its biggest decisions. Known internally as the “Lstaff ” — the “L” stands for leadership — the group sits between the company’s officers and its larger executive staff of vice presidents and above, who are called the “Estaff.”

Netflix’s is searching for its next frontier

Still, Netflix is facing more competition than ever from an influx of rivals that are learning to play its game.

Nearly every major media company, from Disney to WarnerMedia, now runs a streaming service. Their platforms are stockpiled with tentpole movies and TV shows that used to only be found in theaters or on linear TV, and their libraries now rival Netflix’s.

The competition is pushing the streaming giant to continue to evolve.

Netflix recently expanded its efforts into podcasting and even started pedaling merchandise for series like “Lupin.”

In July, the company confirmed plans to offer video games on its subscription service.

It hired Mike Verdu, the former head of Facebook Reality Labs, as its vice president of game development and is currently hiring for video-game-related jobs.

Read more about what Netflix’s video-game roles reveal about its strategy

Netflix plans to approach gaming like it did movies and TV shows. It’ll start off slowly, commissioning and licensing titles based on existing franchises like “Stranger Things” or “Bridgerton.” Then, it will begin to experiment with other kinds of video-game storytelling, like it did with its original series.

“Maybe someday we’ll see a game that spawns a film or a series,” Peters told investors in July. “That would be an amazing place to get to and really see the rich interplay between these sort of different forms of entertainment.”
