This is one of the best covers of Rebecca Black we've heard to date.

The youngster may not be pregnant, but she's given birth to a phenomenon - nay, a renewed sense of appreciation - every American can embrace.

Everybody is looking forward. To the weekend. Yeah. Partying. Yeah.

Words to live by if ever they existed. Listen to President Barack Obama get down on "Friday" with an assist from Vice President Joe Biden here:

President Barack Obama reached out to Justin Bieber this week for assistance.

It all started when Obama made a visit to Ground Zero soon after Osama Bin Laden was killed. There, he met 14-year old Payton Wall, who had written to the President, told him of her father dying on 9/11 and also expressed her affection for a certain 17-year old singer.

Obama reportedly told Wall that he knew Bieber and would organize an introduction between her and her idol. Many reporters and publications mocked the President for making such a promise.

But it looks like it will come true.

Amidst controversy from conservatives, Common performed a spoken word piece at the White House in celebration of American poetry and prose last night.

Among other critics, Sarah Palin ripped Common and the Obamas for inviting the rapper/actor, given his former harsh words against former President Bush.

In any event, Common brought Chi-town to the White House as Barack and Michelle Obama hosted a poetry night in the "People's House." Watch him here:

Did he just anoint Barack some kind of king at the end there?

It's unclear, but that was pretty cool. After all of the controversy of the last few days, Common responded by doing what he was invited there for, delivering a beautiful poem. He also addressed the criticism of his visit on Facebook.

“Politics is politics and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I respect that,” he said. “The one thing that shouldn’t be questioned is my support for the police officers and troops that protect us every day. Peace yall!”

Well put. Read the full text of his poem after the jump:

Despite reports to the contrary, President Barack Obama emphatically said today that he will not release an Osama bin Laden death photo to the public.

Photos taken after U.S. forces shot him dead Sunday clearly show the Al Qaeda leader's bloody, bullet-ridden face, which plenty of people want to see.

It appeared that the administration was on the cusp of releasing the graphic images, but Obama now says it's not gonna happen for myriad reasons.

In particular, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both advised Obama against inciting a backlash against the U.S.

Obama told 60 Minutes in an interview to air Sunday that "the risks outweigh the benefits" and that they wouldn't quash conspiracy theories anyway.

Some will "claim the photos are doctored anyway" and the risk is that the photos "will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East."

Osama Bin Laden Photo

The President continued his defense of not releasing the pictures:

"Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaeda killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet."

"Osama bin Laden is not a trophy - he is dead and let's now focus on continuing the fight until Al Qaeda has been eliminated." He makes a point.

What do you think, though: Release the bin Laden pics?

With conspiracy theories swirling, President Obama has decided to release at least one photo of a dead Osama bin Laden, according to The Drudge Report.

No word on when the White House plans to release the first image. However, a senior U.S. official tells CNN that there were three sets of pictures taken:

  • Photos of the raid where Osama bin Laden was killed.
  • Photos of bin Laden's body taken after the raid.
  • Photos of the late terrorist's burial at sea.

Why not show proof you can that Osama bin Laden is really dead? Because the photo that most clearly shows his face is also the most graphic taken of him.

Due to the massive head wound across his face, officials do not believe it is suitable to run in the media, however it's the image that's undeniably bin Laden.

No word when and if that particular image will be released, but the "Osama bin Laden death photo" circulating online today is NOT real. It's a hoax, people.

One you can see after the jump if you really want. It's grotesque, probably NSFW and NER (not even real), so you honestly don't have to bother, but ...

Now we've seen it all.

Donald Trump not only praised President Barack Obama on Twitter, he's called for a moratorium on partisan politics. Meaning he may actually shut up briefly!

“I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men and women of the Armed Forces for a job very well done,” the business mogul Tweeted.

In response to the death of Osama bin Laden, he added: “I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the flag in celebration.”

  • Birther
  • The President of the United States of America

Donald then called for a verbal cease-fire of sorts, adding:

“We should spend the next few days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those fighting for freedom.”

“God Bless America.”

Indeed. Not only is it a time to stand together, but after Obama blasted Trump at the White House Correspondents dinner, maybe he realized he took some of his earlier criticisms of the President's grades and birth certificate too far.

Fallout from the death of Osama bin Laden has dominated news today. Not surprising, as he was one of Earth's most famous people (for better or worse).

Despite hundreds of news reports and President Obama's address, some people have still expressed doubt that the Al Qaeda leader is actually deceased.

There are also many other questions and angles to this story.

Does this change your opinion of Obama? Is it okay to cheer a man dying, no matter how awful he was? Is everyone at Fox News and its affiliates a moron?

You know what that means, readers: It's poll time! Vote below:

In case you haven't heard, Osama bin Laden is dead. This news came as a major shock Sunday, but few tears are being shed for the terrorist mastermind.

Around 10:50 p.m. EST last night (cutting off the end of shows such as Celebrity Apprentice, amusingly), the story broke that bin Laden had been killed.

At 11:30 p.m., President Obama spoke from the White House, confirming "the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat Al-Qaeda."

Here's Obama's address to the American people:

Obama revealed that the intelligence gathering and planning for the operation had been underway since LAST AUGUST and that no Americans were lost.

He reiterated that American is not at war with Islam, saying "we must also reaffirm that the United States is not - and never will be - at war with Islam."

Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader, Obama said, but a mass murderer of Muslims, and a man whose demise was both necessary and very long overdue.

As Obama said, the intelligence and armed services personnel who planned and executed this operation deserve our commendation and gratitude.

President Barack Obama took the stage at the White House Correspondents' Dinner last night and took on both Donald Trump and the "birther" nonsense.

Entering to Hulk Hogan's old WWE anthem "Real American" as Obama's birth certificate flashed on screen, he then treated the crowd to his "birth video."

After poking fun at himself and various Republicans, Obama seemed to delight in laying into the Donald (who was there) for what felt like an eternity.

Regardless of your political leanings, you gotta admit he killed it:

Following our 44th President, host Seth Meyers took to the podium and went off on all things cable news, birth certificates, and of course, Donald Trump.

President Obama sat down for a talk with Oprah Winfrey yesterday (it will air on her show Monday) and discussed the controversy over his birthplace.

Focused on Obama's birth certificate, or lack thereof (he released it this week), the “birther” movement questioned his citizenship and eligibility for office.

Contemplative Michelle

Typical of our Commander-in-Chief, he laughed it off.

Obama looked relaxed as he said of the birth certificate controversy: “Can I just say I was there, so I knew. I knew I had been born. I remember it.”

Barack can joke about "birthers" ... at least a little.

First Lady Michelle Obama, sitting by her husband’s side, raised her hands and said: “He was born here!” But clearly they only find it funny to a point.

President Obama went on to lambast the critics of his birthplace as “carnival barkers going around trying to get attention instead of solving problems”.
