OBAMA TIME PERSON OF THE YEAR

Barack Obama, Time Person of The Year

Time magazine has announced that President-elect Barack Obama is its 2008 Person of the Year after he became the first African-American to win the White House. “In one of the craziest elections in American history, he overcame a lack of experience, a funny name, two candidates who are political institutions and the racial divide to become the 44th president of the United States,” the magazine said. Click here to see never-before-seen photos of Obama in Time’s pictorial: “Obama: The College Years.” By the way, one of the photos (below) from Time’s pictorial of Obama’s days at Occidental College in LA’s Eagle Rock district, would lead you to believe that the prez-elect was snapped smoking a blunt.

Even though he’s admitted to doing a doobie or two back in the day, this photo of a young, cool, hip Obama is really showing him puff puffing on a plain ol’ cigarette, according Time magazine’s Rick Stengel. So, no Rush Limbaugh, it’s not what you’re thinking or hoping. Meanwhile, Obama said Wednesday he wants very badly to discuss the investigation into charges that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich schemed to sell his Senate seat to the highest bidder, but has been told by the U.S. attorney to keep quiet for another week. “There’s been a lot of speculation in the press that I would love to correct immediately,” Obama told reporters. He said his team is “abiding by the request of the U.S. attorney” to not release the results of his internal investigation, already compiled, until next week. “It’s not going to be that long,” Obama said.

PARIS BENNETT GETTING JAZZY

Paris Bennett might be known as an “American Idol” finalist, but the young singer has every intention of being an American idol. Inspired by jazz greats like Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn, Bennett wants to bring that kind of legendary sound to popular airwaves. Bennett, who took fifth place in season five of the hit talent show, released her debut disc, “Princess P” in 2007. While the disc boasted the petite star’s vocal skills, Bennett really wanted to launch her career with a Christmas album. So the singer’s sophomore offering is a collection of holiday faves and new tracks for the season called “Paris Bennett Present a Royal Christmas.” “Christmas is one of my favorite holidays,” Bennett said. “I definitely had to do a holiday album. That’s something that I always wanted to do, since being an idol – that was the first thing I wanted to do. I didn’t do it. I did ‘Princess P.’ And then I got the chance to do the holiday album with some of my holiday favorites. And I got the chance to work with my mom (Jamecia Bennett). She wrote three songs on the album.”


CLEAVER WARNS: DON’T EXPECT TOO MUCH

Writing in Wednesday’s Washington Post, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver seeks to temper high expectations many African Americans may have of the nation’s first black president, Barack Obama. “I want to remind all those who strongly support the president-elect and wish desperately for him to succeed: If you like the honey, don’t kick over the beehive,” Cleaver said. The congressman noted that he writes from experience. As the first black mayor of Kansas City, African Americans had soaring expectations for him, too, but he was unable to satisfy them all. “Obama will fall short of fulfilling the considerable hopes and dreams of the minorities who supported him, just as we could not fulfill those of ours,” Cleaver wrote.

COWELL WEIGHS IN ON DEATH

During a telephone conference call with press on Wednesday, “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell said the alleged suicide of former contestant and diehard Paula Abdul fan, Paula Goodspeed, hit the production very hard. “You’re talking about a human tragedy,” Cowell told reporters. “It hit us like an express train. It upset me a lot.” Cowell said he couldn’t remember Goodspeed from her strange “Idol” appearance, but his memory was jogged after footage of her audition flooded media outlets last month when she was found dead of apparent suicide in a car near Abdul’s Los Angeles home. “I don’t remember to be honest with you. We’ve seen a lot of people. [But] when I saw the clips back on the news I remembered it.” While he didn’t recall if Paula Abdul had asked producers not to let Goodspeed into the audition room—as she claimed in a recent radio interview—he said Abdul could have stopped the audition at any time. “All you’ve got to say is ‘Stop filming, I need to speak with the producers.’ That didn’t happen. But I only remember from what I saw [in news clips],” he said. He also stressed that Abdul would not have been in any immediate danger during the audition: “There are a minimum of seven security guards in the room. You don’t see them, but they’re everywhere.” On Monday, series executive producer Ken Warwick said, “I would definitely not put a dangerous person or person I thought was remotely dangerous in front of the judges.” Cowell said the entire experience has led him to stop and think about his blunt comments to off-key contestants. “I have thought long and hard about this…I think we will continue in the way we have always done. We have tried to have a sense of humor. The show is not an inherently mean show. It is an American dream show where the whole purpose is to find somebody who through the process becomes a star,” Cowell said. As for the actual “Idol” show, Cowell said he would love to have Beyonce and Britney Spears appear as guests during the upcoming eighth season, which begins Jan. 13. Both appeared earlier this year on his British show “The X Factor.”
