OBAMA BIGGEST NEWS STORY OF THE YEAR

President-Elect Barack Obama

President-Elect Barack Obama

The epic election that made Barack Obama the first African-American president was the top news story of 2008 — followed closely by the economic meltdown that will test his leadership, according to U.S. editors and news directors voting in The Associated Press’ annual poll. The campaign, with subplots emerging throughout the year, received 100 first-place votes out of 155 ballots cast for the top 10 stories.
Two other political sagas — the history-making candidacies of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sarah Palin — also made the list. The vast economic crisis, plunging the U.S. into recession and ravaging many business sectors worldwide, was the No. 2 story, receiving 49 first-place votes. The precipitous rise and fall of oil prices was No. 3. The top story of 2007 was the massacre of 32 people at Virginia Tech University by a mentally disturbed student gunman.

PRESIDENT-ELECT TAKING A BREAK

The Obamas

Barack Obama and his family arrived in Oahu over the weekend for a 12-day vacation before he takes the oath of office next month. According to the Associated Press, the president-elect plans to keep a low profile during the break, with no formal events of his schedule. Aides said Obama will continue to have business meetings and intelligence briefings as he prepares for Inauguration in January. Obama has spent recent weeks at a breakneck pace, barreling through appointments. During the last week, Obama met reporters every day to announce his picks for Cabinet posts, rounding out the bulk of his top economic, national security and domestic policy officials in his forthcoming administration. Still unfilled are his picks for CIA director and national intelligence director, along with other sub-Cabinet appointments. Aides say the president-elect would continue working on those as he left behind his home in Chicago. Obama, his wife Michelle, and their two young daughters spent most of the 10-hour, nonstop flight from Chicago in the front cabin of the United Airlines plane, according to the AP. Younger daughter Sasha wandered back to visit with Secret Service agents in the back of the plane, within view of the roughly two dozen journalists making the 4,200-mile flight to the Pacific islands. The family during past years spent the December holidays visiting Obama’s maternal grandmother, who died Nov. 2, before Obama’s historic Nov. 4 victory. The Obamas are expected to have a private memorial service for Madelyn Payne Dunham, who helped raise him, early this week.

DUPRI SAYS JANET ISN’T PREGNANT

Jermaine and Janet

Jermaine Dupri is using his own blog to set the record straight regarding his girlfriend Janet Jackson and the never-ending rumors that she is pregnant and/or the two have split up. “As you all know Janet is a very private person … the only reason you see her as much as you do on my YouTube vlog is because of me. LOL,” Dupri wrote. “But I hear yall and your questions. … No she is not pregnant and yes we’re still together.”
Dupri, who has dated Jackson for the past four years, also wrote: “It baffles me how yall let these blog and magazines control your lives.” The pregnancy rumors flared up again after Jackson canceled a string of concerts on her Rock Witchu tour this fall because of “migraine-associated vertigo,” which is characterized by dizziness, imbalance and other symptoms.

BILLIE JEAN SUES MICHAEL

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

The TV show “Extra” is reporting that Billie Jean Jackson, a woman who claims she is the mother of Michael Jackson’s youngest son, is suing for custody, as well as $1 billion in child support. The woman reportedly filed suit in Los Angeles on Wednesday demanding the $1 billion, as well as joint legal and physical custody of 6-year-old Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a Blanket), according to legal documents obtained by “Extra.”
The lawsuit also requests visits with the boy on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, in addition to participation in Blanket’s education. Jackson has refused to identify Blanket’s mother, but has previously said the child was the result of artificial insemination from a surrogate. Jackson has faced similar lawsuits in the past. In 1994, a woman named Michelle Flowers lost a $20 million paternity lawsuit against him. In 2006 and 2007, Nona Paris Lola Jackson sued the King of Pop twice, claiming that she – not proven biological mother Debbie Rowe – carried Jackson’s two eldest children, as well as Blanket. Both of her cases were thrown out.
Meanwhile, a new autobiography from producer Quincy Jones, who produced several albums for the music star – including the best selling album of all time, “Thriller” – includes remarks that express disappointment over the state of Jackson’s career. Calling his situation “sad,” Jones says in “The Complete Quincy Jones” he hopes Jackson can make a comeback after he comes “to grips with a lot of things in himself.” Jones also reveals that he’s spoken with Jackson about what he’s done to his face. He says Jackson “used to apologize” to him about it all the time. But Jones says he didn’t feel he could pressure Jackson because “that’s a very personal decision.”
