The Weeknd  is understandably upset After not being nominated for a Grammy for his album “After Hours” received zero nominations.  The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and had tons of hits, including the song “Blinding Lights” which made it to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and spent a record-breaking 40 weeks in the top ten.  So why this incredible snub?   Well it might have to do with the Super Bowl. The Grammy Awards and the Super Bowl are one week apart, and The Weekend wanted to perform at both. The Grammys wanted him to make a decision one or the other, but eventually after some tough negotiations, he was allowed to do both.  Some think that those harsh meetings lead to the lack of nominations.  The Recording Academy's chief, producer-songwriter Harvey Mason Jr. said in a statement that he was "surprised" that the Weeknd received zero nominations and "can empathize with what he's feeling." However, he added, the snub had nothing to do with the singer's Super Bowl performance.  He added that the Grammys are a peer nominated award, and that there are never enough awards for deserving artists.  Here’s how The Weeknd reacted on Instagram:

Don’t expect to find the old “Chapelle Show” on Netflix anymore. The streaming platform took the show off after Dave Chapelle complained that he never got paid or was even told that his work was going to be streamed. In a long Instagram post Dave explained that anyone who streams the show is “fencing stolen goods.”  Dave has done five Netflix specials, and says they have a good relationship because they “do what they say they’re going to do.”
