Dress boosts album sales
LOS ANGELES — The attention-grabbing “Make America Great Again” dress Joy Villa wore at the Grammys appears to have led to a bump in sales for her music.
Villa’s 2014 album, “I Make the Static,” was leading Amazon’s top paid albums chart over albums from Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga.
The use of President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan on the dress she wore drew a strong reaction from Trump supporters and critics on social media.Villa explained her decision to wear the dress in an Instagram post, writing “You can either stand for what you believe in or fall for what you don’t.” She added, “agree to disagree.”
Ford has jet run-in at California airport
SANTA ANA, Calif. — NBC-TV says actor Harrison Ford had a potentially serious run-in with an airliner at a Southern California airport last week.
Ford, an experienced pilot, was told to land on a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, but he mistakenly landed on a parallel taxiway, passing over an American Airlines jet holding nearby.
Air traffic control recordings have Ford asking: “Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?”
American Airlines Flight 1456, with 110 passengers and six crew, departed safely for Dallas.
