Nothing wrong with two superstars celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary with a trip abroad, right? Actually, when it's Cuba, there's plenty wrong with it! Jay-Z and Beyoncé's trip to communist Cuba has some Republican lawmakers in an uproar.
The U.S. prohibits us citizens from traveling to Cuba, so Florida Senator Marco Rubio demanded to learn why Jay & Bey were allowed to make the trip. According to Reuters, the vaycay was licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department under the "people-to-people" cultural exchange program. Rubio released a statement saying, "U.S. law clearly bans tourism to Cuba by American citizens because it provides money to a cruel, repressive and murderous regime. Since their inception, the Obama Administration's 'people to people' cultural exchange programs have been abused by tourists who have no interest in the Cuban people's freedom and either don't realize or don't care that they're essentially funding the regime's systematic trampling of people's human rights."
Where do you stand? Should Jay-Z and Beyoncé have picked a less-controversial spot??

Here's one way to create controversy: produce a television series called The Bible and make Satan look eerily like the President of the United States! History Channel's miniseries is getting rave reviews, but their take on Satan has some in an uproar. Making his first appearance during last night's episode, some say the devil looks a little too close to President Obama.
What do you think? Unintentional? Or were producers trying to send a hidden message? You might recall the HBO show Game of Thrones put what looked like George W. Bush's head on a stake last year…

Don't mess with The Donald. Actually, please mess with The Donald because it makes for fantastic public entertainment! Last month on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, HBO host/political pundit/comedian Bill Maher said Trump must be "the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."
Maher was mocking Donald's $5 million charity offer if President Obama released his college transcripts. Maher said he'd do the same if Trump released paperwork showing he isn't the offspring of an ape.
Appearing on Fox & Friends, Donald says, "Today I sue Bill Maher." The lawsuit demands $5 million from Maher for derogatory comments. Maher tweeted his response, "What?? Really? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha"
Grown men. Publically fighting with words. Embarrassing. On both sides.

After the Bin Laden raid, the large building where the terrorist lived was leveled, and Pakistan claims the area's been facing residential problems ever since. The solution to get people to move back to the area? An amusement park.
Unreal. But for $30 mill, shouldn't ya at least get a roller coaster?!

What do you think? Did Beyoncé fake our national anthem? If so, is that a big deal?

The stars came out in droves yesterday to support to re-inauguration of Barack Obama as the President of the United States. Beyoncé, Kelly Clarkson, Jay-Z, Katy Perry, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Eva Longoria, John Legend, David Arquette, Jennifer Hudson… the list goes on and on! 99.9% of them were there to celebrate Obama's re-election, but the .1% consisted of rapper Lupe Fiasco. Somehow booked as the headlining gig at the StartUp RockOn concert, Lupe was removed from the stage after he rapped about several controversial subjects and revealed he didn't vote for Obama.
This isn't the first time Lupe's taken a dig at Obama. In June of 2011, Lupe called the president "the biggest terrorist" in America. I guess the concert booker forgot about that little deet.

Michelle and daughters Sasha & Malia attended the show, but the prezzy himself was M-I-A. Which is probably a good thing - ya know, the president should have better things to do than attend Katy Perry concerts.

What do you think of Michelle's new "do"? Is it a do, or don't?

Regardless of who you voted for, the music at the presidential inauguration will be a complete crowd pleaser. When President Obama is sworn in for his second term as Commander in Chief on January 21st, Beyoncé, Kelly Clarkson, and James Taylor will help to entertain those in attendance. Clarkson will sing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," a song which the legendary Aretha Franklin performed at Obama's first inauguration.
Beyoncé will sing the National Anthem, and James will perform "America the Beautiful."
Trump probably wants Bruce Springsteen to perform "Born in the USA (?)"

Ah, the holidays. That time of year when we reunite with our close friends and family… but like most of us, President Obama has that creepy, sorta weird dude that's in the picture too. While vacationing in Hawaii, the Prezzy teed it up on the golf course with his old college buddy Bobby Titcomb. The problem is, in 2011 Titcomb was arrested after he approached an undercover police officer asking for sex! Titcomb pleaded "no contest" and was fined $500. The charge disappeared from his record six months later… he must know people.
My suggestion to Mr. Obama: steer clear of Mr. Titcomb. And my suggestion to Mr. Titcomb: consider a name change. Seriously.
