Obama Snubs Kim Kardashian

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Parties, Rivalries, Rumors,

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian was upset to be snubbed by President Barack Obama this week.

The reality TV star had reportedly hoped to meet the commander-in-chief at Steven Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation gala in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and though she wasn't seated near the guest of honor, she asked one of her entourage to find out if he would meet her, only for her request to be denied.

"Kim's table wasn't close to President Obama's but she enlisted one of her minions to scout out the opportunity to meet him. Obama's table and surrounding area was swarming with Secret Service, and security was very tight. Kim's lackey was told to go pound sand, and it was conveyed to Kim that she wouldn't be able to meet him," a source said.

Morrissey Slams Obama’s Thanksgiving

Morrissey with a turkey

Morrissey has criticised Barack Obama over his annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon.

In an open letter posted on fan site True To You titled "Thankskilling," the singer attacks America's animal rights record, claiming that 45 million turkeys are "horrifically abused" at Thanksgiving and that the annual holiday "supports torture." The "First Of The Gang To Die" singer wrote, "Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny! Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51 per cent of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House 'turkey pardon' is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry."

Kanye West Vows to Never Mention Barack Obama Again

Kanye West and Barack ObamaKanye West has vowed never to mention Barack Obama's name again.

The "New Slaves" hitmaker has been criticized a number times by the US president - including advising young people not to look to the wealth of the rapper and his fiance Kim Kardashian as an example of success, and branding him a "jackass" after he interrupted Taylor Swift's 2009 MTV Music Awards acceptance speech - but Kanye believes the politician only uses his name to be "down" with young people:

"I just think that we're pop icons, and the President likes to use that type of thing just to be down [popular]. People were fine with me being everyone's punching bag for about five years - 'This is the person we love to hate, so if you want to distract people from everything that's going on...  just say you hate Kanye and there's going be 30 other people who say they hate Kanye.' That was kind of my position in culture and he kind of used that too - 'Oh, he's a jackass' - because that's how the world felt. I'm not going to mention him anymore, I'm past that, that's out my thoughts. That's lowering my priority of thinking at this point."

Morgan FreemanMorgan Freeman has donated $1 million to Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

The Dark Knight Rises actor joins the likes of Bill Maher and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffery Katzenberg in delivering millions of dollars to the operation, and Morgan has praised the Democrat president's history of working on "tolerance."

"He ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the health care of every American. He has led our nation to be more tolerant and placed impressive, accomplished women on the Supreme Court. In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources. I am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him. Priorities USA Action is doing a great job of protecting the values I believe in. I am happy to help them and I hope others will join me."


Brad Pitt’s Mother Writes Anti-Gay Marriage Letter

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

Brad PittBrad Pitt's mother Jane Pitt has "Christian" views on abortion and gay marriage.

The showbiz matriarch - whose son Brad is one of the most vocal supporters of gay rights in Hollywood - has written a letter to her local newspaper the News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri, urging people to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, due to him being a "family man with high morals."

She also hits out at President Barack Obama because he supports the "killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."

"I am ... a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion. But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon. Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage," she wrote.

Celebrities Thank Obama for Gay Marriage Support

President Obama

Celebrities have praised Barack Obama after he announced he supports gay marriage. The president revealed in a new interview that he had changed his mind about same-sex couples legally commiting.

"There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we're talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn't dawn on them that somehow their friends' parents would be treated differently. It doesn't make sense to them and frankly, that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective," he said in an interview with ABC News.
