It’s been an honor to have been asked to co-host events for The President of the United States over the last couple years (click here to see a clip), and I am excited to pass along the invitation to his 50th Birthday Party right here in our great hometown of Chicago w/performances by Jennifer Hudson, OK Go & Herbie Hancock! Click here for info! See you there!
I have been getting a ton of requests to share some pics from my crazy weekend… the obama visit, peeps from transformers, backstage lady gaga, soundgarden dinner at sunda, hosting “rock the vote” event, lollapalooza, celeb gifting suites, me sucking at rockstar kickball, my dance lessons, bananas… hopefully it all speaks for itself as I am running to catch a plane to Africa!
Speaking of, if you aren’t following me on facebook & twitter you are seriously missing out on all the sharing I do- and will miss out as I go great white shark diving, go on safari, eat like crazy, hit the winelands,… throughout south Africa & Namibia over the next 11days! Will post video here too- but seriously follow me on twitter & facebook for the pics & action in real time! seeya!
No matter who you are or what you may stand for, being a guest at a relatively small event with the president of the united states of America, is an amazing experience that you will never forget. As you can see from this video, I have had the honor of hosting such an event in the past, and I have to say, to this day, people still thank me for inviting them to be a part of it all… so I thought I would share the opportunity once again…
Although I am not hosting or am officially attached to this particular event, I know it will be a great way to experience what I am talking about above. For tickets and info click here!
Just a simple shout out to all of our presidents- and our very own in office now from chicago- here’s a video of the last time we were in chicago together- driving up with secret service w/ just the two of them I share the stage with in front of masses of amazing fellow Chicagoans is something I will never ever forget… enjoy!
That was a serious rush- almost out of no where- CNN, played around the world to millions, wants to skype me while in Russia in my hotel room? Crazy! Keep following me on twitter (click here to follow) as I make my way through Russia, then sweden, ending in copenhagen to meet mrs. obama & my fellow chicago 2016 olympic committee members for the official 2016 olympic host announcement on oct 2nd where i am sure chicago, and the U.S. in general, will win! especially if everyone helps now…
you can help by just sharing all the celebrity messages on this site w/ your friends, family, coworkers & everyone else you can for the next couple days… by email, phone, facebook, twitter, chatboards,… which helps these celebrities virally get the word out to the world that chicago (and the u.s in general) will be the perfect place to hold the 2016 olympics, and that americans are all very excited to host all who can join us (including the 4.4+ billion people watching on tv) for the most amazing sport, cultural & friendship strengthening event ever! thank you for your help everyone & keep spreading the news!
Yesterday I started as a guest on Mancow / wls 890am … listening to him scream at me & everyone else angry-faced about obama, david carradine, patty blagojevich and all kinds of crazy stuff… while I’m there to talk about how rockit won “best burger” in the country… (so random right?)… totally live, syndicated, I’m sure with a bajillion people listening… just wondering, what the heck am I doing here?
Then I get out only to go to my gig at harpo studios to be a special guest on oprah xm radio (click here to listen!) sitting in a quiet calm recording studio w/ dr. laura berman talking sex, dating, relationships, love,… also w/a bajillion listeners from all over the country… only this time w/ more love interested women listening than angry opinionated men… again wondering, what the heck am I doing here?
Unfortunately I didn’t come up w/ any answers… but I thanked god that he let me be there to experience it all… and that I live in a community w/ some of the greatest entertainers in the world w/ different backgrounds, talents, positions, character,… that the world listens to out of straight respect, interest and intrigue… and just pray that I only get to be a part of that craziness more and more in the future! Thx for listening!
