Nonbaseball-related stories to chat about at happy hour.

Angelina Jolie opened up about all aspects of her various careers — from acting to directing to working as a U.N. ambassador — as well as about her family and her personal health struggles for the November issue of Vogue. She's currently promoting her new movie Beyond the Sea, in which she stars opposite hubby Brad Pitt. The accompanying photo shoot, shot by Annie Leibovitz, was a family affair, starring her brood hanging beachside. [Vogue]

Maxim magazine is undergoing its second redesign in two years in an attempt to woo back its rapidly declining audience. After Kate Lanphear was appointed as editor-in-chief in 2014, the magazine became less overtly sexy, shying away from nearly nude women.

The larger magazine not only has thicker, glossier pages, but it also features seven provocative covers and lengthier features. [WWD]

American Apparel's recent drama (bankruptcy and lawsuits, in addition to falling sales) has affected its value significantly; it's currently estimated to be worth between $180 million and $270 million.

Katy Perry's app is almost upon us, and from the pop star's Instagram preview, it looks every bit as colorful as one would hope. But perhaps the most important component of Katy Perry Pop, which was developed by Glu Mobile (the same company responsible for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood), is the appearance of the ever-relevant #LeftShark. Can't wait. [Instagram]
