no title

It's official now that Toby Keith and Three Doors Down have booked themselves gigs performing at Donald Trump's inauguration (uh… congrats?), but there just aren't that many other performers willing to step up for the Prez-elect!

In a statement posted yesterday to StarWars.com, Lucasfilm let everybody know that out of respect for Fisher's legendary work and the meaning she holds in the hearts of fans, her character will not be digitally re-created — at least, for now — in a future Star Wars franchise.

no title

This is just all kinds of ugly from Uma Thurman's ex — and the star is now dealing with the aftermath of a flying string of vicious accusations that played out in court this week.

Thurman, who is undergoing a custody trial against her financier ex-fiancé and father of her daughter, Arpad 'Arki' Busson, was the subject of many a salacious accusation by Busson's lawyers on Friday.

That included the biggie: they claim the film star used a dangerous cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol to treat a mental illness.

Gildan, which makes t-shirts and other clothes themselves, has indicated that they will shut down American Apparel's 110 stores, as well as the factory in Los Angeles where the company had produced all of its clothing.

For $88 million in the bankruptcy auction, Gildan grabbed up all of AA's intellectual property, some manufacturing equipment, and more — but in the process of shutting everything else down, nearly 3,500 people could be out of work within the next few days.

Gildan spokesman Garry Bell discussed the purchase with the LA Times, saying:
