In a rare event, all five living U.S. Presidents converged today for the official opening of George W. Bush's presidential library in Dallas, Texas.

Presidents

Bush, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter were cheered by a crowd of former White House officials and world leaders.

They were joined on stage by their wives - the nation's current and former first ladies (below) - at the outdoor ceremony on a sunny Texas morning.

The leaders were putting aside the profound ideological differences that have divided them for years for a day of pomp and pleasantries for Bush, 66.

Jennifer Lawrence presented the Advocate For Change award to Bill Clinton at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards, only to flub the former President's name.

Lawrence and Harvey Weinstein were on stage when she flubbed Clinton's name while introducing him - and he mouthed "I love it" on the way to the stage.

See very end of the video below:

"I don't know why Harvey made Jennifer do that," he cracked.

"She really was like 2 years old when I became president. I met her backstage and she looked like she was touring the Museum of Natural History."

Well played Bill. And Jen.

4/20. Four-twenty. April 20th. Call it what you want, this is one great day to be high ... on life here at THG. Or on marijuana, from sea to shining sea.

Its origins are often debated, but what's undisputed is that 4/20 has become a de facto holiday. Surely many a celebrity will be partaking on Saturday.

Such as ...

Snoop Dogg on 4/20

Snoop Dogg. You knowz mofo be rollin' up summa dat dank ass sticky-icky-icky and gettin' fizaded off the bubonic chronic right muthaf--kin' now.

Honestly. Snoop's almost as synonymous with weed as he is with early gangsta rap.

Willie Nelson. On 4/30, Nelson will turn 80, or nearly the amount of times he lights up in a given week. Hey, at least he's totally up front about it.

Bill Clinton has finally joined Twitter!

Sort of. Thanks to Stephen Colbert.

Billy Jeff Clinton

In a hilarious interview live from the Clinton Global Initiative, The Colbert Report pundit persuaded the 42nd president to open up a Twitter account.

Colbert took the liberty of activating @PresBillyJeff, a shorter version of his full name, William Jefferson Clinton ... the better ones were all taken.

"Now President Clinton was taken. William Jefferson Clinton was taken. But PrezBillyJeff is available," Colbert informed the amused ex-President.

"Would you like to break into the 21st century right now and send your first tweet?" he asked, and Hillary Clinton's husband obliged. What did he write?

Simply put, Kelly Clarkson owned today's Presidential Inauguration.

The former American Idol champion impressed anyone with a pulse via her rendition of "My Country Tis of Thee" and, at one point during her performance, was photobombed by Bill Clinton.

No... really! See for yourself:

Granted, the ex-President might not really be going for a photobomb here. But can we all pretend like he is?

The 2013 Golden Globes did not lack for star power - or surprises.

From Jodie Foster's speech to Will Farrell and Kristen Wiig's hilariousness and Glenn Close's (non) drunkenness, memorable moments came early and often.

And did we mention a former President of the U.S. showed up?

Receiving a standing ovation upon arriving, none other than Bill Clinton gave an inspirational introduction to the Steven Spielberg instant classic Lincoln.

Golden Globes co-host Amy Poehler gushed after the segment, in homage to her Parks & Recreation character, "That was Hillary Clinton's husband!"

What was your favorite Golden Globes moment from Sunday?

Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with Bill Clinton nearly brought down his Presidency, is set to write a tell-all book about it for $12 million, according to reports.

The former White House intern, 39, will share letters she wrote to Clinton, 66.

"In them, she opened her heart about her love for Bill and how much happier she could make him than [Hillary Clinton]," an insider is quoted as saying.

"Some of what she wrote was so raw that she never sent them."

Clinton has been so revered since he left the Oval Office that it's almost easy to forget that he was only the second White House occupant ever to be impeached.

He was accused of perjuring himself after his affair with Lewinsky was exposed in 1998; he was acquitted in 1999 and left office in 2001 with strong approval ratings.

The 42nd President, whose DNC speech on behalf of President Obama this month was considered by many to be one of his all-time best, has rebuilt his image since.

Sources say that Monica Lewinsky's book will reveal that Bill Clinton derided wife Hillary as a "cold fish" and complained about their "non-existent sex life."

Lewinsky, whose post-scandal life has included work as a news correspondent and handbag designer, has had trouble earning a living, sources explained.

"No one will hire her and she can't get a job ... She needs to make money," says a friend of Monica, who is persona non grata pretty much everywhere.

We can't imagine why ...

Former President Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention last night was one of his all-time great stem-winders, and nearly shut down Twitter.

An estimated 496,222 tweets were posted during Clinton's 48-minute defense of President Barack Obama, and Bubba certainly has no shortage of celebrity fans.

No one does it quite like Bill Clinton.

The 42nd U.S. President offered a rousing endorsement of Barack Obama's record last night at the Democratic National Convention, holding the audience captive for over 48 minutes and proving that even a quadruple bypass can't slow him down.

Whether you agree with Clinton's political views or not, his DNC speech was folksy, detailed and compelling, offering a more cogent defense of Obama's tenure in the White House than its current occupant himself has ever given.

Obama, Clinton said, cannot be blamed for the struggling economy he inherited and has set the foundations for strong and continued growth over time.

"Listen to me now," said Clinton. "No president - not me, not any of my predecessors - could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years."

If Americans "renew the president's contract," the economy will get better and "you will feel it," the 66-year-old man from Hope, Ark., urged the crowd.

"Folks, whether the American people believe what I just said or not may be the whole election. I just want you to know I believe it. With all my heart I believe it."

The 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, celebrates his birthday today. The Big Dawg is now 66 years young. Happy birthday, Bubba!

William Jefferson Clinton, the pride of Hope, Ark., remains the only Democrat to win two full White House terms since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Clinton presided over the largest peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history, and left office extremely popular, despite the whole impeachment thing.

Hey, no one's perfect, right?

His wife, Hillary Clinton, is currently U.S. Secretary of State, and their daughter, Chelsea, says she's considering running for office too someday.

Whatever she does, she'll make mom and dad proud.

These days, Bill runs the extremely influential Clinton Global Initiative and remains a leading voice for progressive economic and social policies.

Expect to see him featured prominently at the Democratic National Convention in a few weeks, making the case for President Obama's reelection.

Here's wishing Clinton - who reportedly went vegan after his bypass surgery - a very happy 66th. A veggie burger to celebrate, perhaps?
