What a get. *eye roll*

Donald Trump's struggle to get A-listers to pop up at his Inauguration (and various after parties) has once again been made abundantly clear. LOLz!

On Wednesday, it was announced that Michael Flatley (AKA the Lord Of The Dance creator) has been booked to dance at Drumpf's Liberty Ball. Yup, according to TMZ, the President-elect will ring in his presidency by watching Flatley and his Irish step dancing troupe break it down at Friday's bash.

Apparently, the Inaugural Committee has been wanting to book him for awhile but didn't get a confirmation until yesterday. It's said the famed dancer will be joining Sam Moore, Travis Greene, and many other artists who have been tapped to perform at the different political parties.

You know, (some of) The Rockettes will be performing as well. Is Trump going to make them do a dance off? Oh, we hope so….

In case you completely forgot Lord Of The Dance was a thing, step back into the magic (below)!

Lucasfilm Announces There Are 'No Plans' To Digitally Recreate Carrie Fisher As Princess Leia

no title

This is such good news to hear — and so smart of Lucasfilm to address it publicly.

After lots of rumors swirled around fan sites and social media this week, Lucasfilm has issued a relatively rare statement concerning the future of Carrie Fisher's Star Wars character after the actresses' death late last year.

Here's the statement (below):

Uma Thurman Accused Of Medicating Mental Illness With Booze & Drugs In Vicious Custody Hearing

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.

no title

It's the end of a fashion era… kind of.

American Apparel is shutting down — or, more accurately, it's going to look very different — after being purchased at a bankruptcy auction by Canadian company Gildan Activewear.

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:
