Money Heist season 4 theories: Alicia forced to leave Inspectora role? Here’s why

Money Heist has garnered a huge following since its beginning back in 2017, and fans of the show cannot wait to get back into the world of Spanish bank robberies. However things were left in a dire place in the final episode of season three, as Rio (played by Miguel Herran) and Tokio (Ursula Corbero) fired rockets at a tank coming to take them down.

Although the team are in an extremely horrific situation, things could still get a little bit worse for El Professor’s (Alvaro Morte) team.

But viewers believe they may not be the only people to have something malevolent coming their way in the show.

In particular, Alicia (Najwa Nimri) has piqued fans’ interests as they believe her secret could go badly for her.

A Reddit user has posed a huge question for fans in suggesting her pregnancy may not go how she expects.

  • Money Heist season 4 theories: Rio to die saving Tokyo?

They wrote: “I think the producers have a reason to make Alicia pregnant.

“My theory is that she will give birth to her child and won‘t be able to work as Inspectora for a time.”

If this is the case, El Professor’s team would surely be pleased they will be losing their biggest nemesis.

But could the arrival of a newer Inspectora spell an even worse outcome for them?

The Money Heist fan went on to suggest that El Professor could go on to use a new Inspectora to his advantage.

They explained: “We will get another new Inspectora and the professor is able to play her.”

While this is certainly a plausible theory, fans didn’t agree that this is how the story would continue.

One replied: “Nah that won’t happen. They probably have her pregnant because something will happen where she loses the baby which will ultimately make her go nuts and not think straight which will help the gang complete the heist and win the ‘war’.”

With so much at stake for both sides of the battle, almost anything could happen.

And as fans know, Money Heist likes to keep viewers guessing, so involving Alicia’s pregnancy in some larger way would certainly make things complicated for everyone.

Meanwhile, fans believe Rio will end up dying to save Tokio in the upcoming episodes.

Reddit user Clyprr explained: “Now that season four is almost two months away I wanna know what you guys think will happen for the new season. Personally I think Rio will die protecting Tokyo and everyone else (Denver, Monica, Nairobi, Tokyo, el professor) will live.” (sic)

  • Money Heist season 3 ending explained: What happened at the end?

With Rio and Tokio destroying the tank in the final scene of season three, the pair will certainly be in the firing line from the police.

The fan went on to add: “I think he’ll [Rio] die and I don’t know why but Pamerlo will live because I don’t think they could make three psychotic characters.” (sic)

But will the pair be able to get out of the situation alive in part four of the show’s story?

Money Heist part 4 is released on April 3 on Netflix.

Ozzy Osbourne Stares Down His Demons With a Smile on 'Ordinary Man'

On “Ordinary Man,” the lushly sentimental title track of Ozzy Osbourne’s latest album, the Godfather of Heavy Metal has the audacity to sing, “I don’t wanna die an ordinary man.” It’s a puzzling lyric because for the past half a century, he’s been anything but average — he’s been the Iron Man, the Blizzard of Ozz, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel — but he sings the line from the heart, showing how deep down inside he still feels like he still needs to prove himself. That’s because in the past year or so, he’s faced some serious health reckonings, including a potentially deadly staph infection that sidelined him from an otherwise triumphant world tour, a fall that was so intense that he needed surgery, and a surprising Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. Ordinary Man, his first new album since Black Sabbath’s blockbuster reunion LP, 13, and first solo offering since 2010’s Scream, is a tribute to his resilience.

Osbourne has always been hard rock’s comeback kid. He dusted himself off after Black Sabbath fired him as their frontman and redefined himself as an unflappable heavy-metal madman. As wild as his antics were and as dark as some of his music was, he always let his fans in on the joke. There was an impish spirit in tracks like “Flying High Again” and “Suicide Solution,” and real heart in ballads like “So Tired” and “See You on the Other Side.”

Ordinary Man brings Osbourne into new light. Because he recorded the LP in the depths of misery, the songs, whether tender or bawdy, are more revealing and personal than some of his past hits. He was still recovering from an operation related to his fall last year when his daughter Kelly asked if he wanted to make a song with Post Malone — someone Ozzy had never heard of. He decided it would be a good distraction, and they recorded the instant hit “Take What You Want.” He felt a connection with Post’s producer, guitarist Andrew Watt, and decided to make a record, and the two recruited an all-star rhythm section — Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan on bass and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith on drums — and dreamt up 10 songs in the space of a week. They got a little help from pop guru Ali Tamposi (Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger,” Camila Cabello’s “Havana”) and signed up a guest list that includes Elton John, Slash, Tom Morello, Charlie Puth, and, once again, Post Malone. Ozzy has said the album was therapeutic for him, and you can hear it in his voice.

Some of the songs are elegiac, some are packed with comic-book laughs, but throughout the album he sings with a youthful vivacity that seems at odds with his 70-something years. His goofball songs are more lighthearted than ever, and his more serious songs sound even more thoughtful.

When he helped invent heavy metal half a century ago, he sang horror-movie lyrics with a conviction that was truly unsettling. Now he’s singing about real-life terrors — “Today I woke up and I hate myself,” he sings on “Under the Graveyard,” “Death doesn’t answer when I cry for help” — and the way his voice aches is incredibly moving. Then the music gets heavy and his performance is heavier. “I ain’t livin’ this lie no more,” he sings over a Sabbathian riff. On the power ballad “All My Life,” he remembers “crying tears of defeat” as a child and muses, “Heaven can take me but no one can save me from hell again.” On “Goodbye,” a song with an “Iron Man” stomp, he sings, “I want to die.” For all of these dark disclosures, however, you know he wants to live because, on the rest of the tracks, he’s the same old Ozzy.

The raging antidrug opener “Straight to Hell” shows off his crude sense of humor — “I’ll make you scream; I’ll make you defecate, ha ha ha ha ha” — minutes before a ripping guitar solo by Slash. The bluesy “Eat Me” is his take on the German cannibal who placed a classified ad to find someone willing to be his meal (with a “Wizard”-ly harmonica intro) and “Scary Little Green Men” starts off like a gorgeous ballad in the vein of his 1986 classic “Killer of Giants” until it picks up the pace with verses about homicidal Martians. And then there’s “It’s a Raid,” the record’s closing cut. Featuring Post Malone, it’s a silly hardcore punk song about a subject Ozzy has been singing about for 50 years: paranoia. And it ends with Ozzy screaming “Fuck youuu!” Even when he’s at his lowest, the Ozzman still knows how to have fun.

But it’s the tender moments that make Ordinary Man a keeper. “Holy for Tonight,” a soulful, midtempo ballad about a man on death row waiting for his number to be called, has a lush, almost Jeff Lynne–like arrangement, catchy gospel backup vocals, and Ozzy’s haunting refrain, “I might have told a million lies, but I’ll be holy for tonight.” And of course the centerpiece is the reflective “Ordinary Man.” The song, which finds the Prince of Darkness swapping verses with the Rocketman, Elton John, is his most naked offering since “Mama, I’m Coming Home,” as he sings, “Don’t know why I’m still alive.” Decades after he howled out “Oh, please, God, help me” on “Black Sabbath,” Ozzy is still bravely confronting the dark side as only he can.

Grimes is 7 months pregnant and ‘mega sick’

Grimes‘ final trimester of pregnancy isn’t smooth sailing.

The 31-year-old singer, who is expecting her first child with Tesla CEO boyfriend Elon Musk, revealed on Instagram this week that she’s “mega sick” from her pregnancy and, as a result, would be stopping all photo shoots meant to promote her new album, “Miss Anthropocene,” which debuts Friday.

In her stead, a virtual avatar named “Warnymph” appears on the cover of the current issue of London-based fashion magazine, The Face.

Accompanying a post to her Instagram unveiling the cover, Grimes notes — “At 7 months pregnant, I sent my avatar to represent me for the cover of The Face magazine! 💅🏻💅🏻 A huge part of why we made her was cuz I knew I might have to delay my album due to the way it’s synching up w my whole health scenario and rly didn’t wanna do that again!”

Along with the cover image their is a second picture of Grimes herself, in which she appears to be under the weather. “Ok! TMI here — but prob out of album stress? x too much work etc I was mega sick last night (it was rough haha 😭 sorry for tmi) but it rly makes the reason we made the @Warnymph all the more relevant to me cuz I CANNOT DO ANY MORE PJOTOS OR I WILL DIEEE.”

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, announced in January that she was pregnant. One month later, she said the pregnancy was wreaking havoc on her skin.

“I don’t know if everyone has this but when I got knocked up my skin turned super red and is just constantly covered in … stuff,” she said in a video for Vogue. “Doing makeup is way harder when you’re pregnant for some reason.”

The Bob Metelus-directed clip opens with Wade reflecting on his final season in the NBA (he retired last year) and wanting to work with Ross as a way to try something new and pay tribute to Miami. The rest of the video finds Wade, Ross and the others working in the studio and taking part in a photo shoot that features cameos from DJ Khaled and the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy. The video is interspersed with scenes from around Miami, including a short shot of a new mural featuring Wade and late NBA legend Kobe Bryant.

“Season Ticket Holder” marks Ross’ first new solo music of 2020, having previously appeared on Jadakiss’ new song, “Kisses to the Sky.” Last summer, Ross released a new album, Port of Miami 2, and published a memoir, Hurricanes.

BYU Pole Vaulter Gets 18 Stitches After Pole Pierces His Scrotum Following Jump

A Utah college athlete went viral this week after sharing a cringe-worthy video of his pole vaulting jump that went horribly wrong.

Brigham Young University pole vaulter Zach McWhorter was practicing a stunt on Monday when his landing did not go as planned.

As seen in a TikTok that the 21-year-old shared of the incident, McWhorter runs down the track with the pole in hand, leaps off the ground and accidentally impales his scrotum with the pole while preparing to dismount.

“That one time the pole went through my nuts,” McWhorter captioned the video, revealing that he needed to get 18 stitches after the accident.

As of Friday, McWhorter’s social media clip has been viewed nearly 18.9 million times.

The athlete told Buzzfeed that he could “see right into [his] scrotum” after suffering the injury.


McWhorter also released a photo of his shorts following the incident, which shows a large hole where the pole punctured his body.

The athlete added that his father, and coach, happens to be a urologist and was able to assist him following the accident.

“Immediately after the incident, we got in his car and drove to the hospital and he sewed me up,” he said.

McWhorter then shared that as far as he knows, he only suffered minor damage to the area.

“There is nothing wrong with my testicles — just a scar,” he said. “One day, we’ll find out if they function or not.”

German Regional Film Funder Boosts Budget, Targets Young Filmmakers

Since taking the helm at German regional funder Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein (FFHSH) last year, Helge Albers has revamped the organization, worked to increase its budget by €3 million ($3.3 million) and introduced new initiatives aimed at young filmmakers.

Albers, a former film producer who previously served as head of the German Producers Assn. and a member of the German Federal Film Board’s production and script funding committee, came in with plenty of ideas to boost the funder’s activities and help adapt it to the rapidly changing film market.

Among the new initiatives is a first-of-its-kind deal with Warner Bros.’ Hamburg-based German division, Warner Bros. Entertainment, which has agreed to annual financial contributions of €1 million ($1.1 million) to the funder. The FFHSH will allocate 25% of the new funding to projects from young up-and-coming filmmakers.

The subsidy board has also increased series funding, with €2 million ($2.2 million) in annual support aimed primarily at the development of high-end productions that are “firmly anchored in the region.”

The overall increase has boosted the funder’s budget to nearly €16 million ($17.5 million) and Albers is working on further increases. The FFHSH is streamlining its funding application process and making it possible for producers to apply for grants more often throughout the year. Producers can begin applying for the new film and series funding in April.

Popular on Variety

The increased budget is likely to attract more projects from abroad.

The FFHSH has assisted a number of high-profile international projects in recent years, including Berlinale competition screener “There Is No Evil,” by detained Iranian helmer Mohammad Rasoulof, which received €250,000 ($272,935). Rasoulof has not been allowed to leave Iran since 2017 and last year a judge sentenced him to a one-year prison term for portraying Iran negatively in his past films. Albers expresses hope that Rasoulof will be allowed to leave Iran in time to attend the world premiere in Berlin.

The FFHSH has also backed major Hollywood productions like Paramount’s Tom Clancy adaptation “Without Remorse,” starring Michael B. Jordan, which nabbed €100,000 ($109,162) when it shot at an offshore training facility in Schleswig-Holstein last year. Sony actioner “Charlie’s Angels” received €400,000 ($436,646) for its shoot in Hamburg’s impressive Elbphilharmonie concert hall in 2018.

Golden Bear winner Ildikó Enyedi’s upcoming historical drama “The Story of My Wife,” starring Léa Seydoux, picked up €450,000 ($491,283).

“Naturally, we’re very open and happy to have major international productions that come to us and we offer very good conditions,” Albers says. “We also have many resources that we can provide to productions shooting in the city and region. Our collaboration with Warner Bros. sends a strong signal that we are open and eager for major productions of all kinds and we have more projects in the pipeline that are coming.”

The changes at the funder are meeting the growing demands of the industry, Albers stresses, noting that it was “urgently necessary” to address such developments in the sector as the rise of new players, the speed of decision-making in the market and increasing format production.

One forthcoming production that is likely to benefit from the new series funding is Fatih Akin’s Marlene Dietrich project with Diane Kruger.

The FFHSH is involved in the development of new series through its Series Lab program organized with Creative Europe Media Desk and other partners, including regional pubcaster NDR, which provides a €7,500 ($8,213) grant to selected projects.

The FFHSH has also strengthened its position on sustainability and diversity by becoming the first regional funder in Germany to make its Green Filming Permit mandatory in the region, ensuring that productions are kind to the environment, and also the first to include a diversity checklist in its application process.

Student earns more than £30,000 a month by selling nude pictures

Former skint student, 23, travels the world and bought a house outright thanks to earning £30,000 a month by selling racy snaps of herself online

  • Kaya Corbridge, from Colne, Lancashire, earns £30,420 a month selling snaps
  • 23-year-old trades nude pictures and other services online with horde of fans
  • Says she bought her £125,000 with her earnings and travels world constantly 
  • Spends hours cultivating the interest of fans who buy her whatever she wants

A global jetsetter has revealed how she went from being a ‘skint student’ to earning over £30,000 a month virtually overnight, by quitting her degree in international relations to sell nude pictures and saucy videos of herself online.

Making the average yearly UK salary of about £30,420 a month, at just 23, singleton Kaya Corbridge owns her house in Colne, Lancashire, outright and holidays in far flung destinations such as Bali, Barcelona and Australia.

Her luxury lifestyle became possible after she quit her degree course in international relations and global development at Leeds Beckett University in September 2017, after just four weeks, to focus on her OnlyFans account – a subscription service where content creators provide exclusive material to their subscribers, or ‘fans.’

Kaya explained how her content – which fans pay a fee to view – can range from naked pictures to videos of her feet, saying: ‘I set-up my OnlyFans account on a bit of whim. I just thought I’d give it a go – I never thought it would change my life in the way it has.

The online model revealed she sold saucy pictures and other cam services to her horde of fans on a cam model platform, which allowed her to buy her own house at £125.000

‘In my first year I made £255,000 and now I earn about £30,000 every month – I’m in the top one per cent of OnlyFans earners in the world.’

Life before her saucy endeavours was far from luxurious for Kaya – who also provides additional ‘favours’ for fans, which can include rating pictures of men’s intimate parts.

Her previous jobs have included being a ‘cash-in-hand’ waitress at 14, working in McDonald’s, Lidl and as a part-time tour operator.

But now Kaya, who has a brother and two sisters who she prefers to keep anonymous, says money is no object, adding: ‘Last year I bought my first house and paid for it outright.

Kaya (pictured), said  she offered to ‘rate’ men by looking at pictures of their private parts and giving them a score in exchange of a fee

The voluptuous model (pictured) said her earnings allowed her to travel the world with her family, buy a house and donate to charity 

‘It cost £125,000 and it’s lovely. It’s got two bedrooms, a kitchen, two bathrooms, a balcony and a garden and it’s made me want to buy a second property soon.

‘But I’m hardly there, as I spend most of my time travelling the world.

‘I love exploring and seeing new places and I love being my own boss, as I can still work from wherever I am in the world.

‘Since I started OnlyFans I’ve visited 20 countries, I’ve taken my mother to Paris, Poland and Barcelona, and I spent a few months in Australia. I travelled in America, saw more of Europe, then went to Bali and now I’m travelling around South East Asia. I’m hoping to have been to 30 countries by the end of the year.’

OnlyFans content providers like Kaya have a photo feed, like Instagram users, showing pictures but she also takes private requests.

The model said most of her fans – which count men, couples and women – were more interested in pictures of her feet than of her curves 

Her fans send her outfits and lingerie to wear in her snaps, Kaya, pictured, revealed. She added that she also received kinkier object her fans hoped she’d use in her pictures, such as rope

‘For private requests people can pay for nude pictures and videos of me and some more naughty things, too, like strip teases.

‘There’s a function called Strip for Tip, and during a live video the more money my subscribers send me the more clothes I’ll take off.

‘I usually post once a day – a mixture of pictures and videos – but the most time-consuming part of the job is making sure I reply to everyone’s messages. I can get hundreds in a day and it can take hours to reply to them all.’

Despite her enviable curves, Kaya says many of her fans – who are mainly men but also some women and couples – just want to focus on her feet.

She said: ‘People have a real thing for feet. I’ve made thousands from mine!

Her fans also feel compelled to buy Kaya – pictured – everyday things and household items such as a kettle and microwave, as well as candles and cushions

‘Sometimes, they just ask for pictures of them – or they’ll want videos of me rubbing oil on them, or of me just walking along in the sand. It’s easy money.

‘Men also pay me to rate their privates. They’ll send me a pic, then I’ll tell them what I think of it in exchange for money.

‘Plus there’s the girlfriend experience. Men ask me to speak to them as if I’m their girlfriend for one day and pay me for it. I chat through messages or voice notes. Usually, they’ll tell me what type of girlfriend they want me to be.

‘Honestly, it would blow people’s minds if they heard what some men ask for – but I just let it go over my head.’

She has turned down some of her fans’ more lurid requests for items of worn underwear, to shave her hair off and, on one occasion, to put a slice of bread in her shoe, walk around on it all day and send a male admirer her crumbs.

Kaya will also ‘play girlfriend’ for a day, texting and sending vocal notes to her fan who pay extra for the service 

While she makes a pretty penny selling her pictures, Kaya, pictured on a holiday paid by her snap business, also feels compelled to give back to charity 

She also has fans who want to ‘gift’ items to her, which she says can be very useful.

Kaya, who did her own poll to determine the profile of her fans, which she believes are mostly men in their 20s or 30s, said: ‘For fans who want to give me gifts, I have a “Wish List.” All I do is add items that I want to it, so they can go and buy them for me.

‘I ask for all sorts, usually just boring every day items. My brother needed a new mattress recently, so I added it to my list, and someone bought it.

‘When I moved into my house, I asked for things like a kettle and microwave, as well as candles and cushions – and got those gifted too.

‘I’ve also been given a phone, trainers, clothes, vouchers and books.’

Sometimes Kaya’s fans use their initiative and buy her surprise presents.

During her first year of university, Kaya, pictured, struggled to make money and would be constantly stressed about making a living 

The model (pictured) eventually decided to sell her pictures and made £8,500 in her first month, which led her to quit university and focus on her side business 

‘I get sent outfits that people want me to wear on camera,’ she said. ‘I’ve been sent a policewoman and a nurse outfit before, as well as a tutu, fishnet tights and a corset.

‘I also had rope sent to me. I was just like, “So, what am I meant to do with this?”

‘The next day a book arrived which was called “The Art of Rope Tying,” so I’m guessing they wanted me to tie myself up in rope.’

Her fans can also help to maintain Kaya’s immaculate appearance.

‘There’s a function called “Adopt a Bill,”‘ she said. ‘Using that, people can pay for me to get things like get my nails or toes painted.

‘Or if something crops up – like if I need to go to the dentist – they can pay for that, too.

‘I have extensions, which can cost a small fortune to maintain, so sometimes, I ask for contributions for my hair.’

Kaya revealed she had gone to university to get a qualification that would help her work in the charity sector  

In her first year after opening her account in September 2017, Kaya was able to make £255,000

Looking back to September 2017 when she first opened her account, Kaya’s life now is unrecognisable.

‘For those couple of weeks when I was at university I was as poor as hell and could barely afford to eat,’ she said. ‘I was always worried about money, my parents didn’t have a lot, but they scraped together all they could to give me an extra £30 a week.

‘I remember being in tears because my laptop basically blew up and I couldn’t afford to fix it.’

Her life changed in an instant, however, when, browsing Twitter one day, Kaya found someone with an OnlyFans account and decided to follow suit and start her own.

She said: ‘I set it up, then forgot about it for a while.

‘A few days later I uploaded a bikini picture of myself to see what happened. When I woke up the next day, I checked my account and I’d made £250 overnight – I couldn’t believe it!’

After that, she continued to post intimate images and videos to the website.

‘Within the first month I’d made £8,500,’ she said. ‘I knew I was on to something good, so I decided to quit my university course and concentrate on OnlyFans.

‘To be honest, I only went to university because I wanted to get a charity job doing international aid.

The model explained she combined her picture work with charity work and offered some of her proceeds or some of her time to dog charities 

In January, Kaya volunteered at a dog rescue centre in Ko Samui in Thailand for a couple of weeks and loved it (pictured with a pup)

Kaya said she could ‘barely afford to eat,’ during her first weeks of university, and relied on her parents , who scraped to give her an extra £30 a week.

‘Now I can volunteer for charities while still earning a wage through OnlyFans.

‘So last year, one day I told my fans, “Whatever I earn today I’ll donate to Pendle Dogs in Need,” which is a rescue and rehome centre, and I made over £1,000 that I donated to them.’

She added: ‘In January I volunteered at a dog rescue centre in Ko Samui in Thailand for a couple of weeks – I loved it, and I hope to do some more volunteering soon.’

Meanwhile, Kaya’s online work is fully supported by her loved ones.

‘My family and friends are happy for me and so supportive of what I do,’ she said.

‘I’ve been honest with them the whole time. As soon as I posted my first photo, I told them what I was doing.

‘And while my family would never expect anything from me, they know I’ll always look after them.

The model, pictured on holiday said she refused her fans’ most lurid requests like wearing used underwear 

Kaya, pictured on a holiday, said her family were aware of her occupations and have been supportive of her choice, adding they did not expect anything from her in return  

Kaya hopes to create her ‘own little empire’ and says life is much easier now that she doesn’t have to worry about money 

The model has all her needs cared for by her fans, from buying mattresses to outfits to wear in her pictures

The jetsetting model, pictured, revealed her snap business gave her the freedom to do what she wanted 

‘I’ve taken my mum on countless trips, I bought my brother an electric bike and I bought my mum a new washing machine and a laptop.

‘My sister had a baby and when she got her own place, I put together a little moving in fund for her, so she could get everything she needed for her new home.’

And Kaya certainly has no plans to quit her current role any time soon.

‘One day I want to have my own little empire,’ she said. ‘Now everything is so much easier, I never worry about money.

‘Whatever I do next I’ll have to transition into, because right now the money I make is too good to give up.

‘This job has given me complete freedom to do what I want and, hopefully, I’ll never have to see my family struggle again.

‘My only regret is that I didn’t start doing this sooner.’
