LOS ANGELES — American Apparel has tabled plans to reenter retail via a Los Angeles store as it focuses on continuing the momentum within other areas of its business.
The company continues to still have a leasehold on the Melrose Avenue location where it intended to open the store.
“We’ve been really focused on solidifying the brand’s e-commerce B2C web site and platform, expanding its reach to over 220 countries around the world,” said Garry Bell, vice president of corporate marketing and communications at American Apparel parent Gildan Activewear Inc. “These initiatives allowed us to substantially increase sales online year-over-year and we look forward to keep[ing] the momentum going.”
Bell went on to say growing the company’s imprintables business in England, Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand is also an area of focus.
The store isn’t off the table and “as we continue to assess other opportunities, we will reviews the plans for the store,” Bell said.
Gildan’s acquisition of the American Apparel business, which filed for bankruptcy twice in less than two years’ time, included the company’s intellectual property and some inventory. The chain of stores were left off the negotiating table, largely seen as a drain on the business at the time.
Apparently, 21 Savage is packing, even at pool parties. The “Bank Account” rapper was caught on video pulling out a gun during a brawl to let heads know he is clearly ’bout that life.
In the clip, someone is seen getting knocked the f*ck out at a Georgie pool party. While dude is slumped on the ground, recovering from the fade, you can see 21 Savage looking toward the perpetrator(s), holding a pistol in his right hand.
However, it would seem that 21 Savage was preparing for the smoke instead of initiating it.
Savage was partying it up Saturday at an annual rager in the Atlanta area called “Big Ass Pool Party,” when a large group of people crashed the event through the back.
Eyewitnesses tell us Sav appeared uneasy at the unexpected entrance, and that all hell broke loose when a person from the other camp said hi to a girl in Savage’s circle, upsetting his side. We’re told someone from the crashers’ crew pulled out a gun when confronted, which led to Savage arming himself, too. It appears he receives a revolver from a friend.
We’re told no shots were fired during the altercation, but someone from the invading group was hit to the ground. Cops eventually shut things down — no word on any arrests.
Since part of this was caught on video, expect the cops to ask 21 a whole lot of questions.
Someone has gotta remind 21 Savage he has weed carriers and baggage handlers now who should be on the frontlines—he’s got too much to lose.

STARKE, FL—Shortly after the official scheduling of his execution date, convicted murderer Thomas McGuire admitted to reporters Wednesday that he is curious to see how the state is going to pull off his lethal injection. “I’ve been spending a lot of time praying and trying to find peace, but I have to admit, I also find myself genuinely wondering how they’re going to even get this thing off the ground,” said McGuire, adding that the Florida Department of Corrections and state prosecutors have been talking a big game for years about administering justice for his crimes, but haven’t once mentioned how they plan to circumvent the nationwide pentobarbital shortage and put their money where their mouth is. “Even if they can manage to get an untested mix of chemicals from some distributor, I’m a pretty big guy—there’s a good chance they won’t …
SIMI VALLEY, CA—Having rummaged through a cluttered backstage closet for nearly half an hour in an effort to locate its elegantly curved lavender form, stage manager Paul Guzman is said to have finally pulled the GOP’s official ladies’ podium out of storage for Carly Fiorina ahead of Wednesday night’s Republican primary debate. “This thing was way back there jammed behind some sound equipment—I honestly didn’t think we’d be using it this year,” said Guzman as he brushed dust away from the floral-patterned carvings on the front of the lectern, which stands several inches shorter than the other podiums and features a lift-up vanity mirror, four delicate finials, and an upholstered velvet work surface for holding debate notes and personal accessories. “It’s always kind of a pain to drag this out, but at least we only need one of them. Plus, this is probably …
Russian female powerlifter from Siberian city of Irkutsk pulls 17 ton retro-tram in an attempt to set a national record. Rough Cut – no reporter narration
Apparently, “driving while Black” is still a crime, especially in the town of Dayton, Ohio.
John Felton, a Black man, was visiting his mother in the city when he noticed a police officer was trailing him, most likely due to his out-of-state plates. Since we’re living in a world where a Sandra Bland suicide follows ticky-tack arrests, he did the logical thing and started filming on his cell phone.
The video, obtained by The David Pakman Show, revealed racial profiling in the highest sense of the definition.
“You’ve been tailing me for how long? You just needed a reason to pull me over,” Felton says after the unidentified white cop tells him he failed to put his turn signal on approximately 100 feet from the corner. “No disrespect, I don’t have nothing against police officers, but all this sh*t that’s going on now? That’s some scary sh*t. To have a police officer just tail you, and then you pull me over, ’cause you said I didn’t signal — what? Do you know how it looks?”
After the routine 10-minute wait while the records check out, the officer returns to issue his citation and offered up the real reason he stopped Felton.
“Because you made direct eye contact with me, and you held on to it while I was passing you,” the officer said.
“What?” an incredulous Felton asked. “I didn’t even see you.”
“I’m not gonna argue about it anymore, sir,” the officer continued. “If you want to keep talking, though, I’ll just get your license back and give you a citation for the violation, and we can take it to court. I’m not gonna argue about it anymore.”
Had Felton not been filming, there would be no evidence to support the claims when he told people of the flimsy
Yet, the evidence is down below. Watch it, starting at the :57 mark.

It streamed much of a peace concert held by Prince in May in Baltimore in the wake of the death of an African American man in police custody.

MTV News recaps episode 3 of the second season of STARZ’s “Power.”
With the 2016 presidential race officially on—did anyone else see Hillary Clinton in a cobalt blue custom Ralph Lauren Collection pantsuit?—the White House is playing host to a number of intimate soirees. This past weekend saw Prince reportedly perform to an audience that included Ava DuVernay and Gayle King. But stealing the spotlight away from the Purple One was 29-year-old pop star Ciara, who attended the performance in a stunning all-black ensemble.
Her sequined Halston Heritage skirt gave sexy glamour with each step, and the covered-up turtleneck was a balance to the daring thigh-grazing slit. Overall, it was a floor-sweeping summer silhouette that can also work for day (sans sparkles, naturally), as Kendall Jenner showed at Cannes. The Angelina Jolie Pitt–like slit, though, is better stepped out after dark.

Unless you count singing in the shower, Max Podell has no vocal experience whatsoever. But that didn’t stop him from popping the question to his girlfriend by recreating a scene from “Pitch Perfect” with a group of his equally amateur (but enthusiastic!) friends.
At a friend’s birthday party on May 8, Max and eight of his buddies sang along to the Treblemakers‘ finale performance from the first movie for his girlfriend Lindsay Versage. The guys rocked blazers and shorts and even attempted some choreography all in the name of romance. Towards the end of the routine, Max comes out and serenades the bride-to-be with a cover of B.o.B and River Cuomo’s song “Magic.”
“We love the movie, and we love the soundtrack,” he told The Huffington Post. “So do most of our friends. Lindsay puts the music on almost every time we are in the car together. Every time that song comes on, I sing that part to her. It’s special between us.”
Courtesy of the couple
At first, Lindsay thought the performance was something the boys had planned as a surprise for their friend Jenny’s birthday. But once she figured out what was going on, Lindsay was over the moon.
“I was absolutely stunned!” she told HuffPost. “It was the most surreal moment and it took me a little while to even realize exactly what was happening. I couldn’t believe how many people were involved and how they pulled it off. It was the best moment of my entire life and I will remember it forever.”

Why did Sony finally decide to cancel the planned December 25 release date for Seth Rogen & James Franco’s ‘The Interview’?
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Carmike Cinemas has decided to cancel its planned showings of “The Interview” in the wake of threats against theatergoers by the Sony hackers.
Sony Pictures Entertainment told theater owners on Tuesday that it would be supportive of their individual decisions on whether or not to show the film, which is still set for a Christmas release, according to multiple reports. The late developments came just hours after the hackers released a data dump that they’re calling a “Christmas gift.” Included in the latest breach are emails from Sony Pictures co-chair and CEO Michael Lynton, as well as specific threats against patrons of the comedy, which depicts an assassination attempt against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
In a chilling message invoking the memory of 9/11, the hackers urged audiences to stay away from venues showing the film.
Carmike Cinemas operates 278 theaters across the country and is the first theater to pull the screenings of the controversial film, according to Hollywood trade publications The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.
The Georgia-based company is the fourth largest cinema chain in the nation, following Regal, AMC, and Cinemark, none of whom commented on their plans for “The Interview” showings.
The Department of Homeland Security has said that there is no credible intelligence to indicate a threat, but is still investigating the message.
The National Association of Theatre Owners had no comment about pulling of the film by its members. Neither Sony nor representatives from Carmike responded to requests for comment.
