Dishin’ Dirt on the Inauguration…

What’s up y’all?!  Here is the dirt…

President Obama and the First Lady

President Obama and the First Lady

January 20, 2009 was a PERFECT day!  I am still floating on cloud nine from all of the fabulous inaugural events.  The invocation from Rick Warren was PERFECT (in spite of all of the “protesters”), Aretha sang “My Country Tis of Thee” (and put some stank on it), PRESIDENT OBAMA’s swearing in was perfect because it was imperfect and Joseph E. Lowery’s “rap” of a benediction would have made Tupac proud.  Overall, the inauguration was one befitting a king.  Although I tried not to cry, I balled like a baby when I saw the BEAUTIFUL Michelle Obama adoringly look at her husband while she held the Lincoln bible for his swearing in.  At officially 12:09 EST Barack Hussein Obama officially became the President of the United States.  Now for the dirt...well the good stuff anyway...President Obama and the First Lady Michelle ObamaMary JThe first stop for the Obama's was the Neighborhood Ball.  This was the show to be at.  Mary J performed looking AMAZING (as usual) in a black fitted gown,, Jay Z (needs to loose the glasses), Alicia Keys (was killing'em in a black cocktail dress), Sting and Stevie Wonder all performed as well as Maroon 5.  All acts were WONDERFUL...until someone passed Shakira a mic.  Who in the hell left the gate open and gave her azz a record deal?!  Someone should have dropped a studio on her head because she sounds TERRIBLE!!  Granted, she doesn't speak English very well but aren't "pitch" and "tone" universal?  I'm just sayin'...  

Side Bar-If you look at Shakira’s attire closely you will see that she and Beyonce have the same stylist.  Nuff said…


The Obama's dancing to Beyonce

The President Obama and his wife Michelle danced as they were serenaded by the sound of Beyonce’s voice singing her VERY EMOTIONAL rendition of Etta James’ “At Last”.  Under normal circumstances Beyonce’s voice does not move me to tears…but this was not one of those times.  A sista was balling like a baby.

Mariah Carey

Another performer that I almost forgot to mention was Mariah Carey.  She was beautiful and she sounded “alright” but she was definitely not the Mariah I was use to seeing.  Oh yeah, she was rocking her latest accessory…AKA…Nick Cannon.  Nuff said…

Overall, the inaugural events were WONDERFUL and I look forward to the next four years! 

Holla back at your girl…

  1. Not only did Jay-Z need to lose the glasses. What was up with hair!! Nappy and not even a line. What was he thinking!!

  2. I think everyone looked perfect. JZ looked good for a thug. His tux was amazing. I was very proud of everyone involved, yes black truly is beautiful!
