"How do you like my new entrance music," asked President Barack Obama as he took the podium at the White House Correspondents' Dinner last night. The music was was DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win." It is safe to say we have THE moat awesome President ever!
President Barack Obama poked fun at the media, his critics and himself last night at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner, a star-filled event where journalists and celebrities mixed with the Washington elite.
Joined at the dinner by his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, the president gently knocked Republicans for not working with him on policy priorities and made a rare reference to his race when urging the opposition party to be cooperative.
"I know Republicans are still sorting out what happened in 2012, but one thing they all agree on is they need to do a better job reaching out to minorities," Obama said.
"And look, call me self-centered, but I can think of one minority they could start with. Hello? Think of me as a trial run, you know?" he said.
He took a swipe at people who have doubted his religion and accused him of being a radical leftist, while he made light of his graying hair.
"These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit, I'm not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be," Obama said. "Time passes. You get a little gray." (Chicago Tribune)
When Jay and Bey returned from their Cuba, Jay released a rap song referencing the trip while saying that he had clearance from the White House. He also threw Obama’s name in a few lines by saying, “Obama said chill ‘You gonna get me impeached’ … We don’t need this s**t anyway chill with me on the beach.”
The media jumped all over the lyrics which resulted in the press secretary holding a briefing to shoot down Jay-Z’s claims. He said, “I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it.” President Obama was asked about the Cuba trip on The Today Show, and he also brushed it off by saying, “We’ve got better things to do.” (Necole Bitchie)
"SNL" just announced that Kanye West will join Ben Affleck on May 18 for the "SNL" season finale. The show tweeted,
According to reports, the writers want to take playful shots at Kanye's pregnant girlfriend, Kim Kardashian.
NBC wants to parody Kim Kardashian during the season finale of Saturday Night Live and that has musical guest Kanye West worried that his baby mama will be raked over the coals, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. "Kanye as musical guest is a great get for SNL, but of course the writers want to push the envelope and take advantage of it with a Kim Kardashian skit," an insider at NBC told Radar. "That's not unusual since her famous family has been spoofed before with some very hilarious and spot-on impersonations of a whining Kim. They have to tread lightly because Kanye hasn't been happy with all the flack Kim's been getting about her pregnancy weight gain. (RadarOnline)
Due to Ye's high-profile status, it is unlikely writers will go too far with any possible spoofs.
"It's definitely going to be a challenge - the writers don't want to piss off Kanye so they're prepared not to cross the line, but they will go as far as they can." According to the source, the producers are desperate to spoof the famous and pregnant reality star, but they're being careful not to cause any "creative differences" with Kanye. "The writers are pushing real hard for an over-the-top skit and the producers are there to reel them right back in if they go too far. Normally the writers have free reign and just go for it, but there has to be some boundaries when your musical guest is Kanye and he's super sensitive about the constant Kim bashing," adds the source.

It will be the rapper's first appearance on the show since 2010.
Remember that picture that was swirling of Jennifer Lope and Chris Brown in the studio? Well under producer Cory Rooney the two were in the studio making new tunes and JLO gave the scoop in a recent interview with Extra's Mario Lopez. She said,
“Yes, when we were in the studio, writing songs and just getting that ‘Jenny from the Block’ flavor back." She added, “We actually worked on a bunch of [title] ideas… and we talked about doing a duet together for his album.”
Theybf.com reports, Fantasia has been living in her North Carolina home/mini-mansion, that you might've seen on VH1 reality show Fantasia Forreal, for years that in 2009, she put on the market for $800K, which is a bout $500K less than what she paid for it.
After no takers, it is being reported that Fantasia, skipped the foreclosure process and gave the keys back to the bank, to by pass all of the stress associated with the house.
Fantasia is currently on heavy promo runs promoting her new album 'Side Effects Of You' which will hopefully bring in new long money for Fantasia and land her a better situation and a new start! =)
Roc Nation's J. Cole may be in a relationship these days but the rapper recently revealed his teenage crush on producer Swizz Beatz's wife Alicia Keys.
While Cole said R&B singer Mariah Carey had his heart as a child, the Roc Nation star admitted Keys stole his attention back in 1999.
"One time when I was like, 14, Alicia Keys had just came out, I was in love with her," Cole revealed in an interview. "If you ask my mom, she'll tell you. I had a super duper crush on Alicia Keys. There were a few of these in my life. Mariah Carey was one when I was real young and Alicia Keys when I was a little older, I felt like I had a chance. So I'm at this Alicia Keys concert with my cousin in Dallas, I'm 14, mind you, '99, I'm like 14 -- she ends her performance and I tell my cousin, 'Yo, there's only one place for her to go now. She gotta leave from the back.' So I convince my cousin to go to the back. So now the same things that girls are doing to me at the shows, I was that guy. ... I'm behind the gate and she just got in her car and passed. But my ultimate goal was that she was going to be like, 'You, 14 years-old, [come with me].' I say that to say there's nothing weird a fan can do -- I get it." ("The Crosby Press")
Earlier this year, Cole said he wished Carey had a daughter his age he could date during his younger days.
"Growing up, it was Mariah Carey," Cole revealed in an interview with radio host Jenny Boom Boom. "Definitely. I used to pray that Mariah Carey had a daughter my age, you know what I mean? [laughs] Um, Alicia Keys for a while, when she came out. I had mad little young crushes. [Prettiest girl] in the game? ... I'm looking at a picture of LaLa, she's very pretty. Rocsi from '106 & Park,' she's very pretty. ... Who else? Oh, Meagan Good. Meagan, good God. Rihanna's pretty. [Those rumors] actually helped my record sales a whole lot. [laughs]" ("Jenny Boom Boom")
In 2011, Cole revealed his childhood crush on late R&B singer Aaliyah.
"Aaliyah, man, it's such a [tragedy]," Cole said in an interview. "I had such a crush on Aaliyah. It was like a little boy crush but it was a true crush. Then when she died, I called my mentor because he was way older than me and I was like, 'Man, you think it would be corny? I want to make a beat.' I was always naming my beats, and this beat I wanna make for Aaliyah. Not a song, I just wanted to make a beat...I did a beat. I wish I could remember, like, I remember slightly what the beat sounded like. But that was my way to pay respect in my own little world, in my own room, just making a beat for her." (Soul Culture)
Miguel has been doing a good job of keeping a huge secret over the past few months.
Last week, rumors started flying that he would be featured on a new Mariah Carey single and when asked about it earlier this week at the Time 100 dinner, he responded, “I don’t know why fans would put that together. I don’t know.” When asked what he thought a collaboration with him and Mariah would sound like, he responded “I think it would sound beautiful!”
Watch Miguel pretending he had no idea below:

Lance Grossis a hottie, but he wasn’t good enough to win the role of the sexy side kick on “Scandal.”
He told NYC DJ he competed for the role of “Harrison.”
“I was up for that role. Yeah, it hurts,” Lance said with a laugh before congratulating Columbus on scoring the role. “He’s killing it. He was right for it.”
A great way to keep the ball rolling. No hate here, just another opportunity for the actor to land a different role on an NBC pilot, where he’ll play the role of a secret service agent.
“I feel like everybody uplifts everybody,” the actor told Angie, adding that he thinks women are far more likely to get snippy over a lost role. “I feel like the girls do that moreso than guys–getting catty about the roles. It’s friendly competition. It’s just like sports.”
A screeenwriter has sued Tyler Perry -- claiming that the director stole his recent film Temptation from him. According to TMZ, William James has claimed that Temptation's plot is similar to Lovers Kill-- which he wrote in 2009, which is about a wife cheating on her husband and having an affair that ruins her marriage.
James has claimed that he is not even sure if Tyler actually read his screenplay, saying that he gave a copy to an associate of Oprah Winfrey, hoping it would get to Tyler.
