In this paper, we review some aspects of geometry for charged rotating black holes which are formed from the gravitational collapse of a massive spinning star with electric charge. We also introduce the computation of entropy for black holes from loop quantum gravity which is a quantum theory of gravity based on Einstein's theory of general relativity.
