This Saturday was the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner and just like last year the POTUS shined. He has such a sense of humor and poked fun at himself and Mitt Romney. Jimmy Kimmel hosted, who also had his fair share of comical punchlines. Both were very funny. And the FLOTUS was stunning as as usual!
Watch and enjoy the videos below.

Queen B was spotted out in the city today heading into the Alternative Educational Complex. Hmm.... I wonder what B's up to? Can't wait to find out. Check out pix below.
The Two Shawns (Shawn Carter and Sean Combs) once again take the top two spots on a Forbes Hip-Hop Cash List. This time it's for The Forbes Five: Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artist of 2012. Mr. Combs took the top spot (that CiRoc don't stop). With a net worth of $550 million. While Mr. Carter took the second spot with $460 million. Not bad for a Brooklyn and Harlem boy!!! Sweet.
According to Forbes here's how the two moguls accrued their wealth:
King Carter: Next up is Jay-Z at $460 million. Unlike his fellow Forbes Five members, Jay-Z still churns out music and goes on tour—most recently with pal Kanye West—adding to his considerable war chest. He sold his Rocawear clothing label for $204 million in 2007 and signed 10-year $150 million deal with Live Nation in 2008, and also holds stakes in the New Jersey Nets, his 40/40 Club chain, ad firm Translation, cosmetics company Carol’s Daughter and other businesses. (For more on his rise as a businessman, check out Zack’s Jay-Z biography, Empire State of Mind).
Kelly poses in a beautiful yellow dress and aqua-blue nails (hmm... are they a tribute to her niece Blue) at a TW Steel photo event. She's been named the watch maker's Global Ambassador. Luv'n her watch --the perks of the job ;-).
And Ms. Minaj was snapped in London today, greeting her fans. She's in the UK promoting her number one album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. She looked in much better spirits today. (I think sometimes people forget that everyone is human, someone's child and hurts just like them. And when you feel attacked it's natural to get defensive. Money doesn't take away or cure your heart or your emotions.)
