An alleged affair between President Barack Obama and Beyonce has been reported by a French newspaper, and has been immediately shot down.

Slamming the sensational claims, The Washington Post has no plans to publish a bombshell story about an alleged affair between the two friends.

The outlandish claim emerged in respected French newspaper Le Figaro.

Photographer Pascal Rostain (who is friends with former French First Lady Carla Bruni) promised: "It'll go out tomorrow [Tuesday, February 11] in the Washington Post."

"I can assure you that the world will talk about it."

They will, but not with any sort of seriousness.

Rostain added: "We should not forget Marilyn [Monroe] or Monica Lewinsky. You can be the president of the first world power ... that doesn't make you any less a man."

Calling for 2014 to be a "year of action," President Barack Obama's State of the Union address sounded promising, but acknowledged the inevitable:

Without cooperation with a divided, reluctant Congress, the kind of progress he envisions is not likely to be realized, despite his promises to go it alone.

"Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged," Obama said, seemingly referring to his falling approval ratings of late.

But, President Obama added, "for more than 200 years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress."

The 2014 State of the Union address was vintage Obama, blending calls for a unified approach with declarations of his independence via executive orders.

Even Republicans relentlessly critical of Obama conceded his oratorical skill.

"A speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex," said GOP strategist and CNN contributor Alex Castellanos. "The worst there ever was is still excellent."

Loretta Fuddy, the director of Hawaii's Department of Health who verified President Obama's birth certificate, died in a small plane crash this week.

A commercial plane carrying Fuddy went down off the coast of the Hawaiian island Molokai Wednesday. The respected state health official was 65.

Fuddy is best known nationally as the Hawaii official who verified and approved the public release of Barack Obama's birth certificate in 2011.

Fuddy said the documents "prove the fact that he was born in Hawaii." Naturally, birthers weren't about to let her tragic death pass without mockery.

Early reports indicate that the plane she was in suffered catastrophic engine failure, and that the other eight passengers on board were rescued.

Naturally, many Tweets, comments, and web posts from the "movement" quickly insinuated that Fuddy's death in the Cessna crash was no accident.

Some implied that the White House was "tying up loose ends," or that those with ties to Obama's past tend to have a "shortened life span."

And, of course, the King of the Birthers, Donald Trump, weighed in:

President Barack Obama is busting out his vocal stylings and musical skills in another viral video hit. This time it's "Jingle Bells," just in time for the holidays.

Of course, unlike Obama's Mandela funeral selfie, this isn't real. It's just a lip dub from YouTube channel Baracksdubs, makers of many previous classics.

Splicing together Obama's speeches to create the illusion that POTUS is singing the timeless Christmas classic, this definitely won't leave you out in the cold.

Unlike the weather, or the Obamacare website. BAM.

Other lip dub gems from the Commander-in-Chief...

The man can "sing." And roll out a terrible website.

Funeral selfies are all the rage these days. Even world leaders are getting in on the new craze, as we saw this week at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Yes, President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt snapped one, as seen below.

Michelle Obama? Not impressed.

Obama Selfie at Mandela Funeral

The photo shows the three smiling for a smartphone as the First Lady of the U.S. stares into the distance, likely not approving of funeral selfies.

A series of hilarious follow-up photos show Obama laughing along with Thorning-Schmidt and touching her arm before turning inexplicably somber.

After all, Nelson Mandela died Friday and now "belongs to the ages," as Obama himself says. Does a man of such gravitas deserve more respect?

Emily Post, the renowned etiquette expert, says it's never okay to take selfies at funerals. Do you agree? Or are we making too much of a lighter moment?

Funeral selfies: Bad taste or good fun?

Happy Thanksgiving, THGers, from our entire family to yours.

What would this uniquely American holiday be without family, food, football and appreciation for the things that matter most and what we've been given.

In THG's case, that means turkeys ... in more ways than one.

On this 28th of November, we're paying tribute to celebs we had the honor and the burden of covering in 2013. We're talking fowl individuals. Bird brains.

You get the idea. Here are our Top 10 Turkeys of 2013 ...

Spencer Pratt is a Turkey

Who will win THG's 7th Annual Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award!?

10 (tie). Donald Trump. It's not a matter of whether he'll make the list. Just where he falls on it. After a relatively quiet 2013, the Donald takes the #10 spot.

10 (tie). The X Factor. So much hype. Such a mediocre show.

9. Teresa Giudice. Mortgage fraud was so 2005. Who gets in trouble for that anymore? Reality stars who live beyond their means? Okay, makes sense.

President Barack Obama was heckled by a protester during his speech on Monday in San Francisco, and he tried to use the incident as a teachable moment.

An immigration reform activist began shouting for Obama to use executive orders to halt the deportation of America's undocumented immigrants.

"You have the power to stop deportations!" yelled the heckler.

Instead of allowing the Secret Service eject the activist, the Commander-in-Chief flipped the script instead and made a point about the limits of authority.

"Actually, I don't and that's why we're here," Obama replied.

Obama motioned for the Secret Service to let him stay, praising "the passion of these young people [who] feel deeply about the concerns of their families."

Then he tried to explain the position he's in as President.

Kanye West stopped by Harvard yesterday for a speech to that university's School of Design class.

Then, this morning, the rapper appeared on a Philadelphia radio station and addressed one of that institution's most famous graduate students: Presdent Barack Obama!

Considering Obama once referred to West as a jackass, and also said this summer that he and Kim Kardashian gave folks the wrong idea about the American dream, the hosts were curious if Kanye and the President would ever "break bread" together.

It doesn't seem likely.

Saturday Night Live, which always has its finger on the pulse of pop culture and current events, has the cure for Barack Obama's recent political depression.
