Rihanna is ready to rock Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day. After Barack Obama is sworn in as president, the star will be singing for charity.

The 20-year-old Grammy winner and girlfriend of Chris Brown will headline the charity ball to benefit the non-profit Feeding America on January 20.

“We are thrilled to have Rihanna participate in the inauguration charity ball,” Feeding America spokeswoman Vicky Escarra told Access Hollywood.

“As the prevalence of hunger in America increases at an unprecedented rate, we are most grateful to Rihanna and to the RIAA for helping us bring greater visibility to this tragic reality and helping us feed millions more people in need.”

Performing to help raise money to benefit the less fortunate in January, Rihanna will no doubt leave fans hungry ... for more hit songs and outfits like this!

Forget David Axelrod and John Podesta. Barack Obama needs to listen to Hollywood.

A pair of beautiful actresses have left messages for the President-Elect, offering him advice on the key issues of sex appeal and marijuana.

Not Angelina

"God help me because I hope I don’t get in trouble for saying this, but I think he's so articulate and so intelligent and so charismatic when he delivers speeches, that there is something very sexy about that... very! And he's also very slim and lean," Megan Fox said this week.

While the Transformers star was drooling over Obama, Pamela Anderson was putting together an agenda. In a recent blog entry, the busty blonde advises Obama to stop animal testing, bring the troops home safely and legalize pot.

Let's quote her stance on the last issue:

"I think we should Legalize Marijuana... this would make our borders less corrupt and then I think eventually this will be more secure option and save children in the long run – we should be able to farm Hemp in America - it’s just silly - it would create jobs - and be good for environment..."

We're gonna assume Anderson is also is favor of quicker divorce settlements and tax exemptions for sex tape stars.

Although she fiercely supported Sen. John McCain, Elisabeth Hasselbeck isn't outraged that Democratic Sen. Barack Obama was elected president last night.

On Wednesday's episode of The View, Elisabeth recalled how her daughter Grace asked who lost the election - and her response was rather heartwarming.

"No one lost today, and God knows I fought hard on the other side," Hasselbeck said. "Today is a victory for this country. The first black president. The first black first lady. The first black family. I haven't felt this good..."

Added Joy Behar (who nearly murdered sparred verbally on a frequent basis with Hasselbeck during the campaign): "Are you saying I was right all along?"

Smiling, Hasselbeck and Behar exchanged a fist bump. Wow. To paraphrase one of many memorable The Office quotes: Congratulations, universe, you win.

NO HARD FEELINGS: Conservative Elisabeth Hasslbeck was an outspoken political opponent of his, but was gracious to president-elect Barack Obama today.

While family and friends mourn the tragic death of Jennifer Hudson's mom and brother, who were shot and killed Friday, support for the American Idol singer and Oscar winner continues to pour in - including from Barack Obama.

The U.S. Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate, who shares the same Chicago hometown as Jennifer Hudson, issued this statement on Saturday:

Mr. President

"Michelle and I were heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew."

Jennifer Hudson sang the national anthem at the Democratic National Convention in August after a personal request from Barack Obama's campaign.

Police issued an Amber Alert for 7-year-old Julian King, who they believe may have been abducted by William Balfour, who is currently the prime suspect in the killings of Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson.

William Balfour is in custody but is not cooperating.

The operating theory among Chicago detectives is the alleged "ongoing domestic dispute" between Balfour and estranged wife Julia Hudson - Jennifer's sister.

It's no Tina Fey making us laugh/cry as Sarah Palin - in fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a Barack Obama impression that's less funny than Saturday Night Live's.

But if the point of the sketch below was to highlight the absurd format and utter worthlessness of this week's presidential debate, then well done, SNL!

President Obama Photo

This faux debate aired during the show's special, condensed Thursday prime-time edition last night. It's pretty good, and even includes a Bill Murray cameo.

Lehman Brothers, Sheman Brothers.

The John McCain campaign has found an issue on which it can release a definitive, meaningful statement: Lindsay Lohan!

Looking For Indrina?

It all started when The Chicago Sun-Times quoted an unnamed high-level Barack Obama insider this morning,  who said that camp turned down Lohan's offer to host an event because she "is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us."

In response, McCain blowhard spokesman Tucker Bounds told TMZ: "So let me get this straight -- they turned away Lindsay Lohan, but Barack Obama has friends like unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and convicted felon Tony Rezko? Maybe LiLo is just too upstanding for Barack Obama."

Yes, it really does appear that Bounds referred to Lohan as "LiLo."

We can imagine the eyes rolling on Tommy Vietor, an Obama spokesperson, when he replied: "Glad to see they're focused on the important issues over in McCain HQ."

Lohan, it should be noted, is on record as having serious issues with Sarah Palin. See how intelligent one can be when one isn't on drugs all the time?
