We as a nation have seen some iconic lids. But Blossom’s flower-power bucket, LL Cool J’s Kangol, Indiana Jones’ fedora, John Wayne’s Stetson, and Brad Pitt’s unfortunate post-divorce slouchy beanie don’t hold a rhinestone to the glorious bejeweled bow Aretha Franklin wore to Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration. As you may recall, when Aretha died it was originally thought that her estate would be divided evenly among her four sons. Then Aretha hit us with a curve ball from beyond the grave with three (THREE!) handwritten wills, one of which was found tucked under the couch cushions. This complicated matters and, according to Vulture, Barack himself is now in the mix. He wants that hat and he’ll stop at nothing to get it!
In case you forgot that George Clooney is very rich and very famous, here’s a big reminder. People says that George and his human rights attorney wife Amal Clooney spent Saturday hanging out in Lake Como, Italy with former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.
I wonder if these are the kinds of antics we should prepare ourselves for as the impending union of Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez threatens us off in the distance. The couple, who will probably strap mirrors to each others’ faces when they read their vows, are already starting with the name dropping by claiming former presidential couple Barack and Michelle Obama have sent them well wishes for a long and happy marriage, which probably made JLo chuckle in her soul.
You know Michelle “Go High” Obama has Seen. Some. Shit. Tragically for us, she’s not a petty bitch like me and and that other one, so Michelle kept things professional in her memoir Becoming, which debuts today. Michelle sat down with Oprah Winfrey for Elle Magazine to discuss her book and life after The White House. In the interview, she touched on her working class upbringing, the sacrifices her parents made, her marriage to Barack Obama, and how she’ll never forgive Donald Trump and his birtherism for putting her family at risk.
After two disturbing days full of news about suspicious packages containing homemade pipe bombs being mailed to several high-profile Democratic politicians and Trump haters, reports are rolling in from everywhere that the so-called MAGAbomber has been arrested.
Yesterday, several suspicious packages were delivered to some very high-profile Democrats, like former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The internet has taken no time in nicknaming the person or persons responsible the MAGAbomber, instantly making MAGA hats just a little less cute (dropping them from “not very” to “burn it“). More sketchy packages have been sent to other high-profile Democrats including former Joe Biden, congresswoman Maxine Waters, and vocal Trump-hater Robert De Niro.
