President and Rev. Wright

President and Rev. Wright

A new book from Newsweek’s White House correspondent Richard Wolffe reveals that Barack Obama held a secret meeting with his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, towards the end of the 2008 presidential primary season.

The purpose, according to Wolffe, was to persuade the former minister of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ to end his public appearances, which were believed to be hurting Obama in the battleground states of North Carolina and Indiana.

“It was time to talk directly to Wright,” Wolffe writes. Over the next week, Obama’s friends at Trinity tried to talk their pastor out of his comeback tour. But by now the church was deeply divided between Obama supporters and Wright supporters, and the conversation was going nowhere.

“So the candidate decided to go see Wright himself in secret, in Chicago. First came the dance over where to meet: one intermediary suggested a neutral location, but Obama said he was happy to go wherever Wright wanted. They ended up talking at Wright’s home, and Obama tried to adopt the tone of a concerned friend giving advice.

“He did not want to tell his former pastor what to do, but he did want to nudge him in the right direction by making him aware of what was about to happen. Wright wasn’t heading for vindication; he was heading for vilification.”

Obama was ultimately unable to keep Wright sidelined, but he did go on to win North Carolina by 15 points. He lost Indiana by just one point.




Sade fans, you might wanna sit down for this. Billboard is reporting that the sultry singer and her band are currently in the studio recording new material for an album that may hit stores before year’s end.
Sony has not set a release date but hopes to put the record out by the end of 2009, the Web site reported yesterday. The group is scheduled to record through the end of June.

“She is in the studio and the album will come when it is ready,” a source at Sony told Billboard. “You don’t wait for years for one and then rush it.”

Sade’s longtime bandmate Stuart Matthewman, a.k.a. Cottonbelly, also confirmed that new material is in the works, but he said the project is still in its “early days” and won’t be close to finished until “later in the year.”

The new album will be Sade Adu’s first with the band since 2000’s “Lovers Rock.”




Actress-comedian Mo’Nique says she knew it was time to lose weight when her husband, Sidney Hicks, watched her step off the scale at 262 pounds and said, “Baby, that’s too much, and I want you for a lifetime.”
“I decided that I had to get some of that off of me. Sid and I had a conversation. What he said to me was motivation,” she tells the new issue of Jet magazine.

Now 40 pounds lighter, the entertainer and star of the upcoming film “Precious” is suddenly battling rumors that she underwent gastric–bypass.

“I’m so scared of needles,” she said in denying the reports.

Instead, she made dietary sacrifices and stopped eating red meat and hit the gym. She says, “This was truly making the commitment to watch what I eat and commit to working out. I stopped eating red meat. I want to say to big people, ‘Let’s be healthy big people.’ Everybody can’t be a size 0… but let’s be healthy.'”

Mo’Nique is now determined to get her weight down to 200 pounds.
