It sure took long enough: the White House has finally condemned the fatal beating of 16-year-old honor student Derrion Albert last week.

As you know, Barack Obama is flying to Copenhagen tomorrow where he will join Oprah, Michelle Obama and a delegation from Chicago in a bid to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics to Chicago, as if that city doesn’t have enough problems.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Wednesday said the video of teens viciously kicking and striking another teen with splintered railroad ties is among the most shocking anyone can see. He told reporters they should expect an announcement on an administration response to the “heinous crime” soon.

Gibbs says, though, that government cannot regulate what’s in people’s hearts. He says the White House believes such crimes call for community involvement. Source

US magazine ran with a ridiuclous cover story claiming pop singer Justin Timberlake dumped his girlfriend Jessica Biel for Rihanna. But no one I know fell for that story.

Paparazzi pics of Justin and Jessica strolling hand-in-hand last night in Northern Cali hit the Internet today totally debunking the silly rumors.

Obviously someone pulled one over on US magazine’s editors (or maybe they made the whole thing up like certain blogs do for hits). The magazine industry is in a slump right now so expect to see more fabricated stories in the near future.

At any rate, I can’t wait to see more pics of Ri Ri and her boo Melissa walking hand-in-hand again. They make such a cute couple!

In a recent radio interview, legendary crooner Andy Williams spoke of his contempt for Barack Obama and his (failed) attempts to socialize this country.

“Don’t like him at all,” he said, “I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing,” he said, adding, “Obama is following Marxist theory. He’s taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail.” Source

Isn’t it ironic that Obama has done more for the Muslim terrorist detainees at Gitmo than he’s done for Americans?

Good for them:

TMZ has learned The Ludacris Foundation has partnered up with Home Depot and Sam’s Club to help victims of the Atlanta floods — which City Hall officials say caused $61 million in damages and wrecked nearly 500 homes.

We spoke to a rep for the foundation, who told us Luda and T.I. are donating $10,000 each to the cause.

The Foundation’s rep told us they are planning a large food bank and a gift card giveaway that could happen as soon as Friday.

Last night Chicago police arrested residents who tore down an Olympic 2016 banner.

Score another one for the me-president. Barack Obama will fly into Copenhagen tomorrow to make a pitch to bring the Olympic games to Chicago in 2016. Obama makes his pitch despite the fact that unemployment in his political hometown is in the double digits and crime is at an all time high. So far there is no word from Obama about the death of Derrion Albert, 16, who was beaten to death last week as he walked home from school.

More children died violent deaths in Chicago this year than in any other city in America.

But all Obama cares about is bringing the Olympics to a city where basic services like water, sanitation and power often don’t work. He doesn’t care about the children or the residents who don’t want the Olympics in their city.

Some residents are so concerned about the burden that the 2016 Olympics will place on the city’s budget that they created a web page The sole mission of the website is to support the other cities that are vying for the Olympic games “because we would very much prefer that the Olympics be held somewhere other than Chicago — anywhere but Chicago.”

If Chicago does win the bid there will be plenty of police and National guards on hand to protect the International visitors. That’s more than they are willing to do for their own residents.

This movie gives a whole new meaning to Two Girls One Cup. Yuck. According to Shock ‘Til You Drop:

Two American girls are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany they end up with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa. The next day they awake to find themselves trapped in a terrifying make shift basement hospital along with a Japanese man. A German man identifies himself as a retired surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins. However his three “patients” are not about to be separated, but joined together in an horrific operation. He plans to be the first person to connect people via their gastric system (yay, ass-to-mouth fusion!), in doing so bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy “the human centipede”.

So in other words, the lunatic sutures their faces to the other person’s rectum and urinary tract so when one goes, they all go in each other’s… you get the picture. I’m assuming the head centipede will be on a clear liquid diet since the two pulling up the rear (so to speak) would be dead from dehydration in a matter of days. Yuck.

Actress/singer Jennifer Hudson was off to see the wizard yesterday at a Netflix outdoor concert and movie screening in Central Park, NY.

Chocolaty goodness Derek Luke was a guest on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday.

Former child star Marques Houston dropped a new CD yesterday (I didn’t know that either until someone told me). Anyway, the disc is available on since I don’t think he’s signed to a label anymore. Though I could be wrong about that. I just don’t have the time to research these things. How U Doin’ Marques? Awwwriiight!

Rap legend Ghostface (Wu Tang Clan) was a guest on BET’s 106 & Park earlier this week.

Actor Malik Yoba attended a birthday party for DJ L in NYC earlier this week.
