Hollywood mix and mingled with the President at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday.
The enchanting Alicia Keys was glowing in a Diane von Furstenberg dress as she and husband Swizz Beatz attended as guests of Bloomberg. Mary J. Blige was elegant in a black gown, taking a seat beside her husband Kendu Isaacs at the NPR table. One of President Obama’s favorite singers, John Legend, arrived with his red-hot date, fiancée Christine Teigen.
“It’s very interesting; I like the mesh of people,” Alicia told USA Today. “The convergence of all politics and entertainment, it’s very interesting.”
Jimmy Kimmel entertained the crowd before the President cracked some jokes of his own. Other attendees included Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, and Steven Spielberg.
One surprise at the dinner was President Obama shouting out Jeezy the Snowman during his speech at the 2012 WhiteHouse Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. last night.
“In my first term I sang Al Green. In my second term, I’m going with Young Jeezy,” joked the POTUS before turning to First Lady Michelle Obama. “I sing that to her sometimes.”
Jeezy returned the love. “Shout out to @BarackObama,” tweeted the rapper, who recorded “My President” during Obama’s 2008 campaign. “You know they love the snowman in the whitehouse.”
Watch Jeezy get his presidential props below.
I’m sure we will hear more about the President dropping Jeezy’s name on his next single “My President’s My Homie,” Coming soon to a mix tape near you!
