Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America. He became a Democratic U.S. Senator from Illinois in 2004, and has...

What do Barack Obama, Nicole Kidman, and Justin Bieber have in common? They've all made a sex tape?

They're all left-handed, making them quite elite for more than just politics, movies, and music.

Between 7 and 10 percent of people worldwide are left-handed. Why does that matter?

Well, because quite a few of Hollywood's elite also happen to be southpaws, and an uncanny number of politicians around the globe are too, for that matter.

Take a look at this list of 21 left-handed celebrities to see the one thing that unites them all:

21 Left Handed Celebrities
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.

Lady Gaga

1. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.


Barack Obama

2. Barack Obama

The POTUS, Barack Obama, is but one of many Presidents who are (or were) left-handed.


Justin Bieber

3. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is left-handed. It's apparently his preferred hand for stogie smoking.


Angelina Jolie

4. Angelina Jolie

One half of famous couple Brangelina, Angelina Jolie is a leftie.


Prince William

5. Prince William

Prince William is left-handed like his dad. Since this seems to be genetic, maybe the Royal Baby will follow in their footsteps.


Sarah Jessica Parker

6. Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker is a southpaw! That means her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw was too!


Julia Roberts

7. Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts' dominant hand is the left one. She probably would've grabbed the Oscar with it if she'd won.


Bill Clinton

8. Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton, grandfather-to-be, is a leftie like so many other Presidents have been


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

9. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

While it's typical for only ONE twin in a pair to be left-handed, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are BOTH lefties.


Tom Cruise

10. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is a leftie. He's also dating Laura Prepon. Those two things probably aren't related at all.


Oprah Winfrey

11. Oprah Winfrey

If being left handed in any way helped Oprah Winfrey become so successful, then we want to be left handed too.


Phil Mickelson

12. Phil Mickelson

Apparently, being left handed gives people a predisposition to being good at golf. That's the case for Phil Mickelson.


Demi Moore

13. Demi Moore

Demi Moore had three babies with ex-husband Bruce Willis. Both of them are left-handed, so there's a good chance their girls are, too.


Bill Gates

14. Bill Gates

Billionaire computer genius Bill Gates is a leftie. Turns out being right-brained is really great for guys like him.


Matt Lauer

15. Matt Lauer

Matt Lauer keeps his mic-hand strong...errr...his left hand. Because he's left-handed.


Jon Stewart

16. Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart emphatically uses his left hand to wave around his pen during tapings of The Daily Show. It's become a thing of his.


Celine Dion

17. Celine Dion

Celine Dion is a Canadian leftie. Not that there's any correlation. She's Canadian AND a leftie.


Nicole Kidman

18. Nicole Kidman

Australian stunner and wife to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman is a southpaw from Down Under.


Seth Rogan

19. Seth Rogan

Seth Rogan is a southie! Wonder if that's the hand he uses to toke or if he keeps that one free for mocking KimYe?


Bruce Willis

20. Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis, currently married to Emma Heming, does not have an expendable left hand. (I mean, who does, really, but still.)


Morgan Freeman

21. Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman is a leftie. You're reading this caption in Morgan Freeman's voice right now.


Being left-handed is commonly associated with intelligence and creativity, not to mention those terrible ink smears along the side of their dominant hand.

Seriously, what's a leftie have to do to get the right kind of desk around here??

Despite their minority status, left-handed people are more likely to excel in music, math, and sports; based on scientific studies and anecdotal evidence, that seems to hold true. 

Just don't expect Bieber to be a poster child for International Left Handers Day.

The selfie trend shows no sign of slowing down as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has joined Instagram and posted a selfie with President Barack Obama.

We'll just allow a moment for you to process that statement.

Using the badass Instagram handle @VP, Biden captioned the image "Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned. -VP"

Biden, Obama Selfie!

The pic of VPOTUS with POTUS was taken in the back of the President's armored limo known as "The Beast," and has received over 23,000 likes so far.

Biden also posted the shot on Twitter, grandly entitled "The First Selfie." His cover picture is also a photo of the pair with a tender arm on each other's back.

The first picture the Veep uploaded hours before was of his beloved Ray-Ban aviators in the foreground, with himself in the background out of focus.

Obama is, of course, no stranger to the selfie.

They were opponents in the 2008 Presidential Election, but Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have now teamed up for a duet of the smash single "Timber."

Sort of.

Okay, not at all.

But the same genius behind Obama lip-dubbing Jingle Bells and Made in the USA has come out with his latest creation, a video of the President and former First Lady making like Kesha and Pitbull.

Give it a look and a listen now:

Funny stuff, huh?

As previously detailed, Kim Kardashian is being snubbed by the Hollywood elite. Kanye West has been unable to get his fiancee into A-List events.

But actors, actresses and singers aren't the only ones uninterested in an association with this former sex tape star.

According to Radar Online sources, Barack Obama wants "nothing to do" with her either!

  • Seeing Through Kim Kardashian
  • President Obama in Rome

Throughout the President’s 2012 re-election run, Kardashian was unabashed in her support for the Commander-in-Chief.

As if you weren't starting to hate selfies enough, that spontaneous one between President Barack Obama and Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is a fake.

Phone maker Samsung confirms that it signed a promotional deal with the World Series MVP just in time for the Red Sox team visit to the White House.

The Korean company's Twitter account posted Ortiz's photo Tuesday:

  • Ortiz-Obama Selfie
  • David Ortiz-Barack Obama Selfie

The company famously pulled a similar stunt in March with Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar selfie, which went viral and featured a collection of Hollywood stars.

Before anyone learned that Ellen's impromptu-looking A-list picture was a sly Samsung promotional idea, it became the most re-tweeted image EVER.

Samsung said in a statement to the Boston Globe: "It was an honor to help him capture such an incredible and genuine moment of joy and excitement.

So genuine.

President Barack Obama made his first appearance on Ellen this week.

And the Commander-in-Chief wasted little time in chiding the host over her Oscars selfie, which broke the record for most re-Tweets this month... a record previously held by Barack Obama!

"I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt," the President joked of the famous photo. "Getting a bunch of celebrities in the background...you feeding them pizza."

Obama on Ellen

On November 6, 2012, within an hour of being re-elected, Obama posted a photo of himself with his wife and wrote, "Four more years."

It held the Twitter record until Ellen, Bradley Cooper and company shattered it on March 2.

Turns out, Michelle Obama is not the only member of the First Family who can make us crack up.

Perhaps in response to his wife appearing on The Tonight Show, President Barack Obama is actually the guest on the latest edition of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.

In a hilarious back and forth with the actor, Obama mocks Galifianakis for The Hangover III; jokes about the host's weight; and then spends awhile plugging The Affordable Care Act.

This is the latest pop culture appearance by the President, who introduced Cosmos on Fox Sunday night and who recently slow-jammed with Jimmy Fallon.

Obama joins a Between Two Ferns guest list that includes Justin Bieber, Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Aniston and James Franco - and the segment is clearly very funny...

... but is appropriate for a sitting President to stop by a show that once also welcomed Tila Tequila?

You tell us: What do you think of Barack Obama being a guest on Between Two Ferns?

President Obama established this week, when he misspelled the name of Aretha Franklin's hit song R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that A-B-C is not as easy as 1-2-3 after all.

At the Women of Soul concert series, which is being hosted at the White House, the P-O-T-U-S spoke of the impact of artists on the fight for equality.

However, when Obama went to quote Aretha Franklin’s famous song "Respect," during which she spells out the word so memorably, he left out one letter.

Watch the Commander-in-Chief's bungled speech below ...

“When Aretha [Franklin] first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans," said Obama.

"And women ... and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved. They wanted some respect,” he went on.

A good message by the Prez. Clearly, he meant no disrspect.

Somewhere, John Travolta and Adele Dazeem are smiling.

Nice try, President Obama.

But Jonathan Davis is on to you.

TMZ caught up with Korn singer Jonathan Davis today and asked him about his band's new music video (below). Why is it filled with clips of Miley Cyrus dancing and other pop culture events?

Because, Davis calmly explained, "our government uses [celebrities] to distract from what’s really going on."

Referring the Miley Cyrus VMA performance that dominated all headlines for days?

"When that went down, Barack Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator," Davis says. "He can imprison whoever he wants.”

Watch the interview with Davis and the Korn video for "Spike in My Veins" now. Do you agree that Obama used celebrity scandals to exercise illegal political power?

Somewhere, even Ted Nugent is shaking his head over Davis' comments.
