Glee FINALE: 3 Character Favorites will not be returning of SEASON 4

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer Leaving Glee

Glee Favorites Will Not Return for Season 4

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith are Graduating From Their 'Glee' Characters

Everyone knew this time would come and now that it's been made official, the news has Gleeks everywhere mourning their favorite characters. It has just been announced that our Glee favorites, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith, will not be retuning to Gleefor season 4.
"[They are] not going to be back at all for Season 4,” Ryan Murphy said. “You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year.”
It's not a big surprise since Ryan had announced earlier this year that some of the characters would be graduating at the end of the upcoming season 3, but Lea, Cory and Chris are the first to officially be leaving the show. And it seems they weren't privy to this information before the rest of us were.
It turns out that Chris Colfer found out about his departure from Glee through Twitter.
“Yesterday, on Twitter. Yeah, I found out that they made that announcement. I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year, I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can’t be there forever," Chris explained. "I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon, but I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end. As a performer, I feel so fulfilled. I have two Emmy nominations and just from hearing from people out in the world about how much the character has helped people. If it’s time for a conclusion, I’m fulfilled with it, and I’m fine with it.”
Lea Michele, however, didn't seem as surprised by the news.
“We always knew we’d graduate in real time," Lea wrote on her Twitter. "It’s all part of the plan and it’s all good! It’s going to make Season 3 amazing!!! To Gleeks everywhere, you’re in my heart now and forever. Love u all!!! This is just the beginning!!”
Which outgoing Glee character (if any?) will you miss the most?

ICONIC TRIBUTE: Donna Summer Passes Away at Age 63

DONNA SUMMER "QUEEN OF DISCO" PASSES AWAY

In a world where the term "diva" is as overused as a MAC machine in an Atlantic City  casino,  DONNA SUMMER stands as a reminder of what true divadom is. She's got talent, class, style and a stack of gold and platinum records that's the envy of Fort Knox - yet at heart she still remains an "Ordinary Girl."  


Legendary disco singer Donna Summer died Thursday after a battle with cancer, sources close to the singer confirmed to FoxNews.com. She was 63.
"Early this morning, we lost Donna Summer Sudano, a woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith," family of the singer said in a statement.
"While we grieve her passing, we are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy. Words truly can't express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time."





Often called the Queen of Disco, Summer was born LaDonna Adrian Gaines on Dec. 31, 1948, in Boston. She began singing early in the church choir and by her teens had formed several musical groups. 
Her sound was a mix of genres, and helped her earn Grammy Awards in the dance, rock, R&B and inspirational categories.



Her first album, "Lady of the Night," arrived in 1974 in Europe, and 1975's "Love to Love You Baby" brought her worldwide fame. 
In the 1978 disco film "Thank God it's Friday," her song "Last Dance" won Summer her first Grammy. 





Summer's soaring vocals on "She Works Hard for the Money" brought her a Best Pop Vocal Performance Award in 1984. 
In the mid-1980s, Summer encountered controversy when she was accused of making anti-gay comments related to AIDS. She claimed she had been misquoted but not before thousands of her records were returned and dance clubs boycotted her music.


Summer holds the record for most consecutive double albums to hit number one on the Billboard charts (three) and was the first female to have four number one singles in a 12-month period: three as a solo artist and one as a duo with Barbra Streisand, CBS said.

She released her last album, "Crayons," in 2008. She also performed on "American Idol" that year with its top female contestants. 


Words cannot describe the sadness I have felt over losing another one of my favorite singers, being in the shadow of the late, great Whitney Houston. It seems like all of the GOOD ONES are leaving us to soon. We will miss you Ms. Summer you truly were a FABULOUS ICON. Im sure God had to dust off the disco ball in storage when you entered HEAVEN. May you forever rest in peace!

DONNA SINGING her HIT!  LAST DANCE in 1983
