Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style in a crepey fabric, which she paired with a chunky beaded teal necklace, while Michelle opted for a dressier look complete with matching jacket and a string of pearls. We have our own convictions about who came out on top (and who got shoved in a binder), but what say you?
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 might just settle for Romney! Important, if you’re the type to make your political choices based on how your favorite ’90s musicians will vote. But more importantly, Stapp now looks like Quagmire on “Family Guy.”
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 picture of this moment, which was forever immortalized on Obama’s Twitter feed with the caption: “A couple of supporters in a New York state of mind last night.” I want to know what they’re talking about. Looks like the best convo ever. Not fair. But seriously, Bey and Jay need to stop taking dream life snapshots. I’m getting jealz. [WOW]
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 “yogurting” the President is speaking out. University of Colorado student Kolbi Zerbest was falsely accused. According to an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she did not spill yogurt on Obama’s pant leg. What really happened: The Secret Service made her put her parfait (not fro-yo) on the ground, and it was a photog who kicked it at Obama. That’s right, Kolbi, blame it on the paps. At least she takes full responsibility for eating the yogurt.[Business Insider]
