STUDY SAYS OBAMA IS ON COURSE

President Obama

President Obama

The New York Times says that President Obama is benefiting from remarkably high levels of optimism and confidence among Americans about his leadership, providing him with substantial political clout as he confronts the nation’s economic challenges and opposition from nearly all Republicans in Congress, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

A majority of people surveyed in both parties said Mr. Obama was striving to work in a bipartisan way, but most faulted Republicans for their response to the president, saying the party had objected to the $787 billion economic stimulus plan for political reasons.

The survey said most thought said Mr. Obama should pursue the priorities he campaigned on, the poll found, rather than seek middle ground with Republicans.

Tonight, President Obama will deliver his first address to Congress on against a backdrop of deep economic anxiety among the public, with worries spanning party, class and regional divides.

A majority of Americans, 55 percent, say they are just making ends meet, with more than 6 in 10 concerned that someone in their household might lose his job in the next year.

Americans are under no illusions that the country’s problems will be resolved quickly, but the poll suggested that they will be patient when it comes to the economy, with most saying it would be years before significant improvement.

A month into Mr. Obama’s term, with his first big accomplishments, setbacks and political battles behind him, more than three-quarters of the people polled said they were optimistic about the next four years with him as president. Similar percentages said that they thought he was bringing real change to the way things were done in Washington and that they had confidence in his ability to make the right decisions about the economy.

The aura of good will surrounding Mr. Obama at this stage of his presidency is similar to the one that benefited Ronald Reagan as he led the nation out of economic gloom.

With a job approval rating of 63 percent, Mr. Obama is in a strong position to sell his economic policies. Yet the poll also captured skepticism about how effective his plans will prove to be in addressing the deep recession, as well as a strain of populism that could test his ability to retain public support for efforts to prop up key sectors of the economy.

PRINCE PLAYS UP TO PENELOPE CRUZ

Shortly after 10 a.m. Monday in Los Angeles, Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Penelope Cruz made her scheduled appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” at LA’s Kodak Theater — after leaving an after party that ended just five hours earlier.

While she didn’t say which bash she attended, WENN reported Monday that Prince threw a midnight concert at Hollywood’s Avalon Ballroom that was dedicated to the Spanish actress.

“Fans and famous friends paid $100-a-head to join the ‘Purple Rain’ hitmaker at his Sunday midnight party, which doubled as the launch for his new Web site LotusFlow3r.com,” WENN reported. Oscars attendees Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah and nominee Taraji P. Henson were among the audience.

Prince reportedly performed a string of hits and covers from upcoming releases, including The Cars’ “Let’s Go” and “Crimson & Clover,” a chart-topper for Tommy James and the Shondells.

Announcing, “I’m the DJ tonight,” Prince also played covers of the Beatles’ “Come Together” and the Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Woman” as well as The Time’s “Jungle Love” and “Play That Funky Music.” He ended the show with an encore of “I Feel For You” at almost 3.30 a.m.


NAACP CALLS FOR CARTOONIST’ FIRING

al_sharpton_speaking_out

In the continued fallout surrounding a New York Post cartoon that appeared to link President Obama with a chimpanzee, the NAACP has called for the firing of the cartoonist, while Rev. Al Sharpton is targeting the local media monopoly of the paper’s owner Rupert Murdoch.

Leaders of the NAACP on Saturday called for the firing of Sean Delonas, the Post cartoonist whose drawing lampooning the federal stimulus bill has drawn charges that it’s racist and encourages violence toward President Obama.

Speaking at the civil rights group’s annual meeting in New York, NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said that if Delonas is not fired, the group will call for protests of the paper and Fox television affiliates, which are owned by Post parent company News Corp.

“There is consensus that if the Post does not … get rid of the journalists who are responsible for this bit of hate speech seeing the light of day, that we will move this from a local, regional issue to a very national issue,” Jealous said. The group also called for the cartoonist’s editor to be fired.

On its Web site Thursday, the New York Post offered a qualified apology, saying it was “most certainly not our intent” to express racism, but also accusing some of jumping at a chance to attack a paper they already disliked. “To them, no apology is due,” the paper wrote. “Sometimes a cartoon is just a cartoon — even if the opportunists seek to make it something else.”

NAACP Chairman Julian Bond said that explanation rings hollow. “This is tastelessness taken to the extreme,” he said. “For the publication to suggest the only people who object to it are constant critics of the New York Post is beyond ridiculous. …This was an invitation to assassination of the president of the United States and anyone who was not offended by it doesn’t have any sensibilities.”

Rev. Sharpton, who has organized several protests in the wake of the cartoon, is currently circulating a petition aimed at punishing New York Post owner News Corp and its owner, Rupert Murdoch.

TYLER PERRY SCORES AGAIN!

Madea Goes to Jail

Madea Goes to Jail

Tyler Perry’s “Madea Goes to Jail” dominated the weekend box office, opening with $41.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

It was the highest grossing film ever for both Perry and the film’s studio, Lionsgate, reports the Associated Press. Perry’s previous opening record was $30 million for 2005’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.”

Steve Rothenberg, president of distribution at Lionsgate said the debut of “Madea” was the studio’s best opening in its 14-year history. The studio’s previous top opening was the $33.6 million debut of 2006’s “Saw III.”

“You could argue that Madea is now the top female box office star in Hollywood,” said Rothenberg, whose studio has distributed all seven of Perry’s films, several of which were released straight to DVD. “The character is one of the great screen creations of the last decade.”

The following are estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Media By Numbers LLC. Final figures will be released today.

1. “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail,” $41.1 million.
2. “Taken,” $11.4 million.
3. “Coraline,” $11 million.
4. “He’s Just Not That Into You,” $8.5 million.
5. “Slumdog Millionaire,” $8.1 million.
6. “Friday the 13th,” $7.8 million.
7. “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” $7 million.
8. “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” $7 million.
9. “Fired Up,” $6 million.
10. “The International,” $4.5 million.

MJAC TO RELAUNCH CAREER IN LONDON

Michael

Michael

The Daily Mail is quoting a source who claims Michael Jackson is in serious talks with concert organizers for a comeback series of up to 30 live shows scheduled for later this year in London’s O2 arena.

The source, who requested anonymity, confirmed media reports that the 50-year-old “King of Pop” could be set to play his first major concerts since his 2005 acquittal on child molestation charges.

The O2 arena is reportedly competing with resort hotels in Las Vegas for the right to host the shows, which could net Jackson up to 150 million pounds, reports said.

“It will be the greatest comeback in the history of pop and there would be no problem selling out the O2 every night,” an unidentified source told the Daily Mail newspaper.

“No one is concerned about his reputation and people don’t feel it is a risk,” the source continued. “Organizers are confident people will come from all over the world to see him. There have been rumors about his health but that is not an issue.”

FROM THE SLUMS TO THE TOP

oscars-logo

Slumdog Millionaire,” a rags-to-riches tale both on screen and off, was named best picture at the 81st Annual Academy Awards.

The indie movie that fought an uphill battle to worldwide recognition took home eight awards, including best director honors for filmmaker Danny Boyle.

Sean Penn earned his second Oscar as best actor at the 81st Annual Academy Awards for his performance as gay activist Harvey Milk in the biopic “Milk.”

Kate Winslet, on her sixth nomination, finally copped an Oscar, winning the trophy for best actress.

“Slumdog Millionaire,” a rags-to-riches tale both on screen and off, earned Danny Boyle the best director prize.

Adding an emotional coda to a career that was cut down in its prime, the Academy saluted the late Heath Ledger as best supporting actor.

His posthumous award for “The Dark Knight” was accepted by his father, mother and sister.

Ledger, who died of an accidental overdose on Jan. 22, 2008, became only the second performer to win an Oscar posthumously, following in the steps of Peter Finch, who was posthumously named best actor more than 30 years ago for his performance in 1976’s “Network.”

Penelope Cruz took home the first Oscar of the evening as the 81st Annual Academy Awards got under way Sunday night at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland.

CHIMP CARTOON DRAWS SHARPTON’S IRE

ny_post_chimp12009-cartoon-med-wide

Rev. Al Sharpton is on the warpath after taking offense to a cartoon in Wednesday’s New York Post that links President Barack Obama to the 200-pound chimp that was killed for attacking its owner’s friend.
The cartoon by Sean Delonas shows a dead chimp and two police officers, one with a smoking gun. The caption reads, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”
The cartoon refers to Travis the chimp, who was shot to death by police in Stamford, Conn., on Monday after it mauled a friend of its owner. It links the chimp to Obama, who signed his administration’s economic stimulus plan on Tuesday.

NY Post Editor-in-Chief Col Allan added:

“The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist.”

But Rafael Olmeda, president of Unity: Journalists of Color, told Journal-isms:

“It’s as politically insensitive and tone-deaf as anything I’ve ever seen. Any legitimate political point being made is erased by the racist imagery, whether intended or not.”

Rev. Sharpton, members of his National Action Network and other leaders will picket in front of the New York Post headquarters (1211 6th Ave between 47th and 48th Sts.) today at 12 noon.

TIGER WOODS ON THE PROWL

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods is reportedly close to ending his long injury layoff and could decide within days where he will make his PGA Tour return, his caddie Steve Williams said Wednesday.

“It’s going to be anytime, shortly,” Williams told Television New Zealand, adding that Woods will come back to the tour mentally stronger than before. “He’s probably 95 percent of the way there. He was waiting for the birth of his second child which just came last week so he’s ready to go. He just needs a little bit more walking. He hasn’t been able to walk too well.

“Anytime in the next few weeks he’s going to tee it up. He definitely wants to play a couple of tournaments before Augusta so any day now he’s going to make a decision when he’s going to play.”

Woods has not played since reconstructive surgery on his left knee a week after winning the U.S. Open in June. There was talk over the past week that Woods would make his return at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Tucson, Arizona starting Feb. 25. His wife, Elin, gave birth to their second child — a boy named Charlie Axel — earlier in the month.

Williams said Woods had remodeled his swing to accommodate his injured knee and had been refreshed mentally by his long break. “He’s just got a couple of little issues but when he tees it up that will be a sign to say ‘I’m ready to go’ because he won’t play unless he’s 100 percent. It’s getting closer,” Williams said.

BEYONCE NOT A FUN DRUNK

Pop superstar Beyonce admits she’s a lightweight when it comes to alcohol, but instead of instantly becoming the life of the party, the hard stuff makes her shut down and turn attention inward.

“I don’t drink often. But when I’m drunk, I’m very quiet and I observe and I go to sleep. I don’t think I’m much fun,” she tells the China Daily.

As for drugs, Beyonce has no intention of ever getting high, because she’s far from impressed by the behavior of drug users and abusers she has met.

She adds, “I always said I would never do it (drugs). I’ve never seen a person who was high and thought, ‘Wow, I want to do that!’ I’m like, ‘That’s cool for them, but no thank you. I’ll just have my wine.'”

GET A PIECE OF MIKE

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

In April, Michael Jackson is scheduled to auction off more than 2,000 personal belongings from his debt-ridden Neverland Ranch estate at the Julien’s Auctions sale in Beverly Hills.

Investors at the Sycamore Valley Ranch Co., a joint venture between Jackson and an affiliate of Colony Capital LLC, agreed to take over the singer’s $24.5 million debt on the property after he couldn’t keep up the $3 million-per-year operating costs and was forced to sell.

Items on the auction block include a glittering white glove covered in Swarovski crystals that Jackson wore for a stage performance of Billie Jean – estimated to sell for as much as $15,000; and the gates to the 120-acre ranch, which are expected to go for at least $20,000. Jackson’s 1999 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph limo, decorated in 24-karat gold, is expected to fetch another $140,000.

Julien’s Auctions president Darren Julien tells the New York Post, “Michael Jackson was a collector of everything. We’ve never seen a collection that is as extensive and eccentric as his.”

Jackson plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the auction to MusiCares, a charity which aims to help musicians in need.

A preview of the auction items will be held from March 24 to 29 at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York’s Times Square. The sale itself will take place from April 22 to 25 and will be broadcast on television.

HALLE BERRY TURNED THIEF

Halle Berry

Halle Berry

Halle Berry has signed on to star in “Who Is Doris Payne,” a film based on the true story of an international jewel thief whose career spanned five decades.

According to Variety, the project is being written by Eunetta Boone and developed by J2 partners Justin Berfield and Jason Felts.

The real Doris Payne, now 75, made her mark by stealing diamond jewelry from stores such as Neiman Marcus and Town and Country. “Her success was based purely on her good looks, incredible charm, and gorgeous clothes,” reports MTV’s Movies Blog. “She would simply ask to see trays upon trays of rings, earrings, or watches and try on so many that clerks would forget how many they had given her.

“She made thousand pawning the jewelry and even expanded her trade overseas to Switzerland and Monte Carlo, living the high life in between while raising her two children.”

After police finally caught up with Payne, she served no more than 5 years in jail, though she is currently back behind bars for stealing a ring from Neiman Marcus

OBAMAS CHOOSE TABLE 52

The First Couple

The First Couple

President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle were back in Chicago over the weekend and spent Valentine’s Day at Table Fifty-Two, one of their favorite restaurants in the Windy City.

“I was honored and humbled that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama chose Table Fifty-Two as their Valentine’s dinner retreat,” said chef and co-owner Art Smith, according to People.com.

“I have cooked for many former presidents and Hollywood A-listers, and this was a milestone in my career – to serve my first acting President of the United States of America.”

Smith has cooked for the Obamas “many times” in the past, but “having him on his first return to Chicago was awe-inspiring,” the chef says.

When they entered the restaurant on Saturday night, the Obamas were applauded by the other guests – prompting Smith to blurt out, “Dinner and a show!”

As for the meal, “crispy catfish and our famous pistachio chicken were the fare of the evening, and I believe I saw a piece of our gooey crunchy pecan pie fly by,” said Smith.
