Bruce Springsteen recovering from COVID-19

Bruce Springsteen tested positive for COVID-19 after his sold-out show at the Prudential Center in Newark this weekend. He also had to miss the inaugural American Music Honors award show, a fundraiser for the Bruce Springsteen Archives & center for American Music at Monmouth University because of it. Both he and his wife were supposed to be presenters. The archives' executive director broke the news that the Springsteen’s were both diagnosed with COVID-19 just hours after Springsteen took a final bow Friday night at his New Jersey show. Meanwhile, Gov. Phil Murphy announced at the event that Springsteen’s birthday, Sept. 23, will now be “Bruce Springsteen Day" in the state of New Jersey.

'Love is Blind' live reunion to be released Monday after live stream technical delays

Fans of the hit show "Love is Blind" on Netflix were disappointed after giving up parts of their Sunday for the highly anticipated live finale that was set to air but never did. After multiple delays, Netflix announced on Twitter that “love is... Late” and the episode would be up 15-minutes later than expected. But that never happened. Netflix released a statement late Sunday night promising the finale will air Monday at 3 p.m. Meanwhile, Netflix is set to open a production studio at the former Fort Monmouth Army base.
