No, Michelle Obama Topless On A Magazine Cover Is Not “Artsy”

Plenty of absurd things are "artsy," like crafting Jesus on the cross out of elephant feces or giving birth inside an art gallery as a live action installation. But a drawing of Michelle Obama topless on the cover of Spain's Magazine de Fuera de Serie is plain old tasteless. In my opinion, they have…

President Obama Jokes Again About Daughter Malia Not Being Allowed To Date

Barack Obama told "Entertainment Tonight" that Malia may not be allowed to date "until she's 30 or 35." Sorry, President Obama, but your jokes about not letting Malia date are a little paternalistic. And anyway, she's 14, which is like the new 27. [Uptown Magazine] This dog-shaming Tumblr of pups with…

“Rape Is Rape”: President Obama On Rep. Todd Akin’s Ludicrous Comments

"The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn't make sense to the American people and certainly doesn't make sense to me. So what I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn't have…

Obama Wants To Try Bobak Ferdowsi’s Famous NASA Mohawk

"I understand there is a special mohawk guy working on the mission. I thought about getting a mohawk myself but my team keeps on discouraging me.

Elizabeth Banks Stands Up For Planned Parenthood

Actress Elizabeth Banks continues to be a magical unicorn from my dreams with this just-released video in support of Barack Obama's 2012 campaign. Banks talks about why she supports Planned Parenthood — when she was a broke college graduate they helped regulate her heavy flow! — and Obama's overall support for women's health care. (No…

The Obamas Talk About Their First Date

Allow me to go out on a limb and suggest that the Obamas have got to be the most in love couple ever to live in the White House. I mean, I know I wasn't around for the vast majority of our country's history, and there isn't digital evidence of many prior presidents and their…

President Obama Covers “Call Me Maybe,” Sort Of

Health care reform what? Syria who? President Obama is just the latest celeb to cover that super catchy "Call Me Maybe" song. It's cute, but it's most redeeming quality is 100 percent less Donald Trump than the Miss USA pageant contestant cover. [MTV.Tumblr.com]…

Anna Wintour Shills For Barack Obama

It's perhaps no surprise that the fashion world would come out in support of a more liberal presidential candidate. But what is shocking is that the normally quite demure Vogue editor Anna Wintour would deign to make a campaign video on behalf of one. But yet here is Ms. Wintour, openly praising and…

Morning Quickies: Michelle Obama Gets Tucked In Bed By Her Husband

Aww, this is adorable: Michelle Obama tells People magazine the president "tucks her in" each night.  "We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I'm usually in bed before anybody," she said.

President Obama Talks Gay Marriage, “50 Shades Of Grey” On “The View”

President Obama appeared on "The View" today, and damn, the talk was serious as if he appeared on "Meet The Press." But there were very serious matters to discuss: last week's announcement that the president believes lesbians and gays should be allowed to marry, the economy, and of course whether or not Mitt Romney…

Jay-Z Supports Gay Marriage, Says Obama’s Endorsement Was “The Right Thing”

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It's no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple ... I think it's the right thing to…

Unwed Mother Bristol Palin Wags Her Finger At Obama Over Gay Marriage

[It] would’ve been helpful for [President Obama] to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.  Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better…

President Obama Believes Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal

[O]ver the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there…

How Young Barack Obama Wooed The Ladies, According To His Ex-GFs

Once upon a time, a young college student named Barry transferred from Occidental College in California to Columbia University. The year was 1981. The fashion styles were perhaps regrettable.

The Best Of President Obama’s Speech At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

As is tradition, the President delivered a standup routine at this weekend's White House Correspondents' Dinner, cracking jokes about Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Donald Trump. Probably my favorite joke? “Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton," President Obama said. "Four years later she won’t stop drunk-texting me from…

The Girl Accused Of “Yogurting” Obama Tells Her Side Of The Story

Yesterday, in Colorado, President Obama allegedly got "attacked" by some frozen yogurt. "A woman got very excited and spilled yogurt on me," he said of the incident. God, I hate when that happens.
