After President Barack Obama is finished with the White House he may want to consider a stint at the House of Blues.  (more…)

Ms. Drama talks to legendary activist Angela Davis on the red carpet for Black Girls Rock about Occupy Wall Street and its impact. In the interview, Davis acknowledges the importance of the people coming together to call out the inequalities of the nation and that “corporate companies are destroying our economy”. In the interview, Davis explains why it’s important for the people to support and put pressure on Obama in regards to his choices, and why this war in Afghanistan needs to end.

I got issues, dont judge me.

In what seemed like a routine interview on CBS’ What’s Trending with Shira Lazar, Lupe Fiasco, who’s currently promoting his LASERS album, decided to comment on President Obama’s leadership, calling the fellow Chicagoan and President a terrorist.

Lupe’s candid conversation with CBS is below – as reported by Entertainment Weekly:

“To me,” Lupe began, “the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

When asked if who he’ll vote for come 2012, he echoed the sentiments of “Words I Never Said,” saying he doesn’t plan on participating in the voting process because he doesn’t believe he can fully support any candidate.

“No, I don’t vote,” he said. “I don’t get involved in politics. It’s meaningless. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, ‘Yeah, I stand for this person,’ then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that’s just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren’t going to do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
Fiasco‘s anti-establishment stance is well documented. For those just now being introduced to him, look no further than his latest single, “Words I Never Said,” for his views on politics:

“Limbaugh is a racist/ Glenn Beck is a racist/ Gaza strip was getting bombed/ Obama didn’t say s—/ That’s why I ain’t vote for him/ next one either/ I’m a part of the problem/ My problem is I’m peaceful.”

I’m not sure if Lupe’s fans will appreciate his sentiment, but we can only hope his thoughts aren’t reflective of the masses.  Just in case he’s forgotten, Obama is one man and not God.
