Well Played: The Obamas’ Easter Ensembles

The Obamas dressed up in their Sunday best to attend an Easter church service in DC, and as usual, I’m totally in awe of this gorgeous family. Sasha and Malia looked beautiful (and age-appropriate) in their colorful Easter dresses, while the divine Mrs. O opted for a Prabal Gurung dress she’s worn a couple time…

Here Is James Franco’s Blithering, Awful, Embarrassing Poem About Obama

After a brief respite, James Franco is back to being The Worst, today unleashing his new poem, “Obama in Asheville,” which was supposedly written for the president’s inauguration or something. The poem reads like a boring Wiki of all the things James learned in English 101, and then veers off to talk about getting a…

Well Played: Michelle Obama Goes For The Gold

With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a…

Election Night Style Stealer: Tom Brokaw’s Rad Round Eyeglasses

Between Brian Williams making marijuana jokes, Diane Sawyer possibly being drunk(?), and Karl Rove begging Fox News to take back that whole “Obama wins” thing, the election newscasts last night were chock full of fun. Even among all the holograms and painted ice maps, I couldn’t help but notice Tom Brokaw’s awesome tortoiseshell eyeglasses. The…

Singer From Creed No Longer Has Arms Wide Open To Obama, Looks Like “Family Guy’s” Quagmire Now

Scott Stapp is the lead singer of ’90s band Creed. Creed are a bunch of Nickleback Jrs. — they used to be, like, the most hated band in the world until Chad Kroeger and Co. unseated them. Nowadays, Stapp is busy punditing about the upcoming election on Fox News. He’d really like another Reagan, but…

I Want To Be A Fly On This Wall

This is one of those moments where technology was used in the most appropriate way possible. Earlier this week, Jay-Z  and Beyonce hosted an Obama reelection fundraiser at the 40/40 Club. Beyonce said lots of nice things about the POTUS, people drank lots of top shelf champagne and wrote fatty checks and someone snapped a…

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. I’m a frozen yogurt addict, so it happens to me a lot. Even when I’m not excited. Anyhow, the girl accused of…

Foreign Battered Women May Be Granted Asylum In The U.S.

Foreign victims of domestic violence may finally be able to escape their abuse; the Obama administration has instated a new policy that may grant some of these victims asylum in the United States. The policy would reverse a Bush administration stance that did not allow foreign abuse victims entry into the U.S.

Obama’s Got His Own Dildo

There are certain places I expect the President of the U.S. to pop up: CNN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, etc. Since President Obama is unusually stylish, it’s no surprise that he and the super glam Michelle regularly grace the cover of non-news magazines. The one place I was not expecting to…

Who Is Bo Obama, Anyway?

Have you heard the news? The Obamas got a dog, and they’re naming him Bo! There were some conflicting reports about Bo over the weekend (is he, in fact, from a shelter?), so we thought thought we’d straighten out things regarding the new First Dog.

Bo is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog (also know…

The Chia Obama Is Offensive. Really?

Walgreens stores in Chicago and Tampa have removed the Chia Obama from their shelves because they’ve deemed it “objectionable.” “Since when is an Afro racist?” asked Joseph Pedott, founder of Joseph Enterprises, which manufactures Chia Pets. “Owners can trim Chia Obama’s ‘hair’ to any length they want,” he added. I personally don’t see what’s so…
