Alexandra Daddario has a sense of humor
Turns out Alexandra Daddario is awesome. We already knew this of course last month when I posted her amazing nude scene from HBO's True Detective (gosh, might as well post those pics again). And now check out her reaction on Twitter upon learning that President Obama is a fan of the show:

Samuel L. Jackson is an informed voter
Samuel L. Jackson couldn't care less about President Obama's message or policy. He only voted for him because he's black. Hey, I used to base my vote for Student Council President on whoever had the tastiest cookies, so that sounds very logical to me. Jackson told Ebony magazine (via TMZ):
"I voted for Barack because he was black. 'Cuz that's why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them ... That's American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn't mean [bleep] to me.Guys, I know what you're thinking, but let's put the pitchforks aside for a minute. You have to remember that Sam Jackson is a recovering crackhead, so you're better off not looking for deep thoughts from this dummy. I know, I know, any white person who dared say something so stupid would be vilified, tarred, and feathered, but we need to remember that Sam Jackson is black. Taking offense to what a racist Hollywood actor says is in fact a racist action. Of course, I can get away with it because I donate to the United Negro College Fund. Or at least I would if I had money. I had cereal for dinner last night. Dinner.
Jackson then went on to drop the N-word several times when discussing Obama, telling the mag, "When it comes down to it, they wouldn't have elected a [bleep]. Because, what's a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain't scary at all. [Bleeps] don't have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don't let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A [bleep] would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the [bleep] said that?' I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, 'cuz he ain't gotta worry about getting re-elected."

Roman Polanski appeals to President Obama
With the help of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Roman Polanski is appealing all the way to President Obama to help end the senseless persecution of him for drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl (like we all haven't done that before!). Yeah, good luck with that ya' silly little midget pervert. From The Daily Beast:
In an astonishing act of backroom international diplomacy, French President Nicolas Sarkozy hand-delivered a letter from fugitive Oscar-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski to President Barack Obama last week on the sidelines of the international anti-nuke proliferation summit in Washington, according to a small and little-noticed article embedded in the prestigious French political magazine, L’Express.Is this a joke? Roman needs to pay for the unspeakable crime he's committed -- by continuing to live in his palatial estate where he is waited on hand and foot by his staff of Swiss manservants. If France's president actually thinks that the U.S. is going to let a guy go free after he's perpetrated unthinkable atrocities just because he's a celebrity in the film industry . . . then he knows our legal system better than I thought.
It is unclear what Polanski or President Sarkozy, for that matter, think that Obama might be able or willing to do for a man who has acknowledged giving a Quaalude and champagne to a 13-year-old girl he then sodomized.
Talk about dropping a stink bomb. The Polanski letter, which is not directly quoted in L’Express’ article, is said to suggest that the two months the aging director spent in a Swiss prison—in addition to the 47 days that he spent in detention in California in 1977—should suffice for the crime of unlawful sexual intercourse he pled guilty to. (Polanski is now under house arrest at his chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland while authorities seek his extradition to the United States.)

Khloe Kardashian meeting President Obama
On January 11, 2000, during a campaign stop in Florence, S.C., then Governor George Bush said this: "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"
On January 25, 2010, while shaking hands with Khloe Kardashian at the White House during a visit by the Los Angeles Lakers and their wives, President Obama said this: "Great show."
As an American, which statement was more embarassing?
Kanye West at the Video Music Awards in New York (9/13)
Check out what ABC News' Terry Moran posted on his Twitter yesterday (since deleted):
Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a "jackass" for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential.An ABC spokesman later told Politico:
"In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview. This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again."Name-calling's a nice start, but the President can do so much more. He can pretty much guarantee himself a second term if he names Kanye the Ambassador of Afghanistan or North Korea or somewhere else you die as soon as you step off the plane. I can see Kanye's blog already:
SOMALIA IS VERY NICE IT IS MUCH NICER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A BULLET JUST WENT THROUGH MY SHOULDER. IT IS VERY PAINFUL BUT NOT AS PAINFUL AS KNOWING I WILL NEVER BE RECOGNIZED AS THE TRUE ARTISTIC GENIUS THAT I AM.
Michelle Obama might kill Beyonce
Beyonce better watch her back. Michelle Obama is *this* close to going Chris Brown on her ass. The first lady is not pleased with how Beyonce's acting around her husband. A source told the National Enquirer:
"Beyonce has spent months gushing over President Obama, and when she was in the same room with him, she couldn't tear her eyes away from him. Before things got out of hand, Michelle got word to Beyonce to tone things down or risk being banned from the White House in the future.It must be nice holding a grudge against someone and being in such a high position of authority. For example, I'd love to send my neighbor to Guantanamo at the snap of my finger. Let's see his bitch ass try to blast his stereo at 2 AM when he's locked in a 4x8 cell. Damn I want to be first lady . . . is Barack into white guys or is he strictly a ladies man? I'm practically disease free if that helps.
"On President Obama's big night, Michelle was cordial to Beyonce, but gave her the cold shoulder at the inauguration festivites. When Beyonce went to hug her, Michelle gave her a forced smile and clutched her hand instead." (Print Edition - 2/9)
Mariah Carey singing at the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball (1/20)
Mariah Carey was shocked after being treated like a common celebrity at the Neighborhood Ball Tuesday night in Washington, and not the ultra-super-duper-important celebrity she actually is. Organizers even had the gall to seat Carey in the VIP section with such low-rent celebs as Jon Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, and Bruce Springsteen. Ugh, the nerve! From the New York Post:
Some divas cling to their high-maintenance ways even at moments of historic national import. Mariah Carey, who performed at the Neighborhood Ball for President and Michelle Obama, was "furious" when she found out where she'd be seated for the inauguration. A spy said, "Mariah was in the VIP area, where every celebrity, like Jon Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen, was seated. But somehow she thought she'd be up with the Obama family. When she realized she wasn't, she bailed." (Source)Instead of Mariah, Barack's mother-in-law Marian sat at the table. Which is a bunch of bullshit of course. How many times has that bitch sold out Madison Square Garden? How many gold records does she have? NONE.
