If you’re looking for the perfect gift from the Jay Z/Barney’s Collection for the man who has everything, you’d better hurry into your Barney’s location: many must-have items in the collection are almost sold out.
Cheaper priced items from the collection, such as the $695 cashmere ski mask (pictured below), are already sold out at the Barneys New York location. Other hot items that are no longer available include the $1,275 fleece hoodies and the $2,295 Moncler leather sleeve puffer varsity jacket that was modeled by Jay Z’s wife Beyonce on her Instagram page.
This is not a joke. Amazon.com, the world’s largest online shopping retailer, plans to begin delivering packages into customers’ hands by use of remote controlled drones.
The U.S. government already uses drones in military operations to drop bombs on the heads of unsuspecting terrorists. But don’t be surprised if one of Amazon’s drones drops that package you ordered on your head in 30 minutes or less.
Barney’s has canceled the big holiday event that Jay Z hoped would cement his brand in the high end retailing world. The 45-year-old rap mogul had hoped to be center stage at the well-heeled Barney’s-sponsored holiday bash to launch his Barney’s Collection on Nov. 20.
But according to WWD.com, Barney’s canceled the holiday party which was to be held at a private, off-site location.
Bosses at high end retailer Barneys released a statement apologizing to rapper Jay Z following media reports of racial profiling incidents involving black consumers at the New York location.
2 young black shoppers filed separate complaints accusing Barneys of racially profiling them after they made purchases of a $2,500 Celine handbag and a $350 Ferragamo belt.
But instead of apologizing to the shoppers who were racially profiled, Barneys apologized to Jay Z for inconveniencing him.
“We deeply regret that these recent events have distracted from the great work of the Shawn Carter Foundation, and we offer our sincere apologies to Mister Carter,” said Barneys CEO Mark Lee.
And you scoffed when I said Jay Z was behaving like HE was the victim?
Barneys NY has recently come under fire for 2 alleged incidents of racial profiling involving black consumers.
In response to the avalanche of negative press surrounding his business affiliation with Barneys, Jay Z’s publicist released a statement on Saturday making him out to be the victim.
“I move and speak based on facts and not emotion. I haven’t made any comments because I am waiting on facts and the outcome of a meeting between community leaders and Barneys,” Z was quoted as saying.
“Why am I being demonized, denounced and thrown on the cover of a newspaper for not speaking immediately?”
Rap mogul Jay Z is under pressure to cancel his upcoming watch launch at Barneys New York after two black consumers accused the high end retailer of racial profiling. College student Travon Christian filed a lawsuit against Barneys and the NYPD after he was detained and accused of using a stolen debit card to pay for his purchase of a $300 belt.
Desperate to fix the mounting problems plaguing his insurance exchange portal website, Healthcare.gov, President Obama put in a call to telecommunications giant Verizon.
A report on USAToday.com quotes an informed source who says Obama called Verizon’s Enterprise Solutions division to beg for help “to improve the performance of the HealthCare.gov site, which is a key component of the Affordable Care Act.”
This news comes on the heels of a report that Healthcare.gov needs 5 million lines of code rewritten in order for the site to work properly.
If you recall, President Obama and his National Security Agency (NSA) enlisted the services of Verizon to spy on millions of Verizon customers.
