Obama on the Text
Jay-Z is a busy guy. He's got Presidents of the United States to text. He doesn't have time for Chris Brown and Rihanna's adolescent drama. And he said so quite plainly.
Testify
Actress Halle Berry testified in California yesterday (June 25) about a bill that would limit the ability of paparazzi to photograph the children of celebrities and public figures, mentioning her own daughter's fears to help make her point.
Not So Jersey Strong
Familiar backgrounds don't mean jack to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Snooki.
The Garden State icons met -- on camera -- and to say the pint-sized 'Jersey Shore' starlet wasn't a fan of the portly, possibly presidential hopeful is an understatement.
Power Players
The POTUS, Barack Obama, and his FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, were named the World's Most Powerful Couple by Forbes. No surprise there, but they were joined on the list by a slew of celebrity pairings as well.
Conan + Barack
Saturday night (April 27) was the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, which hosted many important faces in the political sphere, as well as celebrities ... and the cast of 'Duck Dynasty.' (No, we're not sure how that happened either.)
This year, the star-studded event was headlined by Conan O'…
Alien Nation
Because the main person you should trust with secrets of national and planetary security is Will Smith (especially when he's on his way to a barbecue), we're actually not too shocked at the fact that his son, Jaden Smith, says President Barack Obama told him about aliens.
'Open Letter,' Closed Book
Hell hath no fury like a President with an idiotic press corps scorned.
When Jay-Z dissed Barack Obama in his new track, 'Open Letter,' the White House responded. And it was hilarious.
'Open' Season
In response to complaints that Jay-Z and Beyonce illegally vacationed in the communist, cigar-making country of Cuba (despite getting government permission to do so), Mr. Carter has responded in a rather disappointing way: with a whiny song called 'Open Letter.'
You can check out the audio below, in …
Senator Sleazeball
Ashley Judd backed out of her potential campaign for Senate in the state of Kentucky, but it's not like her opposition was worried.
New audio leaked of Mitch McConnell mocking Judd's mental health history with his staff, because, well, he's clearly a class act.
You Will Assimilate
Bill Clinton is finally on Twitter -- thanks to Stephen Colbert, who gave the former Commander-in-Chief a shove into the social media age on Monday night's installment of 'The Colbert Report.'
Need a Fix
Led by rap mogul Russell Simmons, over 100 celebrities -- including Will Smith, Susan Sarandon, Scarlett Johannson, Jennifer Hudson and Nicki Minaj -- have signed a letter urging President Obama to overhaul America's drug laws.
Cubano Loco
Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrated five years of wedded bliss in Cuba last week, but that pesky Communist regime thing wound up garnering them a whole lot of criticism.
Million Dollar Baby
If there's anyone with whom Lady Gaga would have a bad romance, it would be the Republican party. Which is probably why Mother Monster -- devout Democrat and patron saint of everything the GOP disdains -- reportedly shunned a $1 million offer to perform for the grand old party during its conven…
The Wedding Planner
Stephen Colbert, who of course spoofs a wingnut conservative on his show 'The Colbert Report,' was shocked and disheartened to learn that FOX's Bill O'Reilly doesn't really give a hoot about gay marriage one way or the other.
Which is pretty shocking considering Bill O'R…
No Thanks
Ashley Judd, after much consideration, decided that a Kentucky Senate bid wasn't the best idea for her right now.
NoH8
Yesterday, March 26, the Supreme Court began hearing arguments both for and against Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state of California.
In addition to changing their social media profile pics into the Human Rights Campaign's red equality sign, some celebrities tweeted feverishly for th…
Stalled
Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler is having trouble adding "lawmaker" to his resume. Seems his bill, dubbed the Steven Tyler Act, which passed in the Hawaii State Senate, had hit a wall in the Aloha State's House of Representatives.
Where is a 'Schoolhouse Rock' song…
