It's Over According to Dawn

So, last season we saw that Aubrey O'Day and D.Woods, were dismissed from Danity Kane. People wondered what would happen to remaining members of Danity Kane, would they be reunited, would they split up? Well, the answer is here. Dawn Richards, who spoke the truth at the meeting with Diddy, last season, once again spoke the truth. In a recent interview posted on MTV.com she says "As of right now, Danity Kane doesn't exist." She also says that Diddy invited all of the members back and only two showed up, Dawn and Andrea. "It changes our situation completely," she said. "We have fans out there who love Danity Kane. We love Danity Kane. It's hard. We're sitting here trying to make sense of it now. It's hard. We're put in this position that we didn't ask to be in and we're being told to fix it." Hopefully Danity Kane can get over their Damage . She did say "as of now", which means that their may be a possibility of a reunion later, however I'd be surprised if it were any time soon. Watch it unfold on-screen on, February 12th. Good luck DK! -Jay P-

Idol Update!

That's right, it's time for an "Idol Update"! Honestly, I did not get to watch most of it, so I'm not sure whats going on! Want to fill me in..johnpanichella@jayswag.com! I do know that there was one contestant, I think her name was Julissa. She was okay, but the interesting part was judge, Paula Abdul, was upset because the other judges did not pay attention to her. The usually quiet Paula mentioned that since there are four judges now, they seem to forget everybody. Does Paula have a problem with the new judge, Kara!? Overall, there was only 19 people who made it through to Hollywood last night...that's pretty bad! Hopefully the next city can step their game up. -Jay P-


Angie's New Style: Hit Or Miss

Do you disagree? Email me at johnpanichella@jayswag.com -Jay P-

I hope you're watching today's historic event either by actually being there or through the television, I know I am! I am going to be writing my thoughts, and updates all day, as long as nothing unexpected happens. So make sure you check back every so often and look for updates. I can't wait to hear Obama's speech. Although he has a writer, Obama took the speech written for him 2 months ago, and changed it to make it his own. Barack Obama is probably one of the most inspirational writers and speakers we have seen as our President in a long time.

8:47, Barack and Michelle departing from the Blair House, guest house of the White House, for a church service.

9:52, Vice President-Elect, Joe Biden, and his wife, arrive and enter the White House.

9:54, Barack and Michelle Obama exit the presidential limo and are greeted by Mr. and Mrs. Bush. Michelle Obama gives a gift to them. Now they go in to share coffee.

10:07, Hillary Rodham Clinton, will NOT be confirmed as the Secretary of State, at least not today.

10:44, First Lady, Laura Bush and soon to be First Lady, Michelle Obama, enter a limo and make their way to Capitol Hill. Vice President, Dick Cheney and Vice President-Elect Joe Biden, enter a separate limo now and also make their way to Capitol Hill. Finally, President George W. Bush and President-Elect, Barack Obama leave the white house and enter the motorcade and are on their way to meet everyone at Capitol Hill.

10:51, We find out that Laura Bush's gift from Michelle Obama was a writing pen, and journal with today's date engraved on it, so she can write her memoirs and write about the next chapter in her life.

11:00, The First Ladies, Vice President and Vice President-Elect, and President and President-Elect all arrive at the capitol and prepare for the inauguration.

12:06, Barack Obama now becomes our 44th President, President Barack Obama! His oath was administered by Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts.

12:26, Obama just finished his approximately 20 minute inaugural address, one word WOW! His inaugural address just proves what a great orator and writer he is. He made it known that there will be hard times ahead, but he is ready to take them on. He used our countries past highlights to show that we can, once again overcome the troubles that face us now. The speech overall was a powerful speech and it flowed nicely, ending with a quote from George Washington.

12:39, The ceremony is now finished. Time for the Inaugural Balls!

So it's over now and I just want to wish our 44th President, Mr. Barack Obama, the best of luck. Today history has truely been made. "We the people", have finally become united. The words "African American", can go hand and hand now. Today, Martin Luther King Jr's great "Dream", has become a reality. May people be judged by the content of their character and no longer by the color of their skin! God bless America.

The Secret Is Out!

I Knew they wouldn't be able to keep it a secret! Beyonce will be singing Etta James' classic "At Last", a great song for Barack and Michelle to share their first dance to. The title alone has such a strong meaning that can relate to tomorrow's historic inauguration. "At Last", at last "we the people", actually become one "people". The actual singing will take place during the neighborhood ball, one of the ten official inaugural balls taking place tomorrow. I wish I could have went to one! -Jay P-


No Award For Perry

On Saturday Katy Perry recieved the International Song Of The Year Award, at France's NRJ Music Awards. She received the award for her worldwide hit, "I Kissed A Girl", apparntly the world "Didn't like it", because at the end of the show they took the award away from her? The host announced that there was a mistake and Perry was not the winner. The winner was Rihanna for her hit single, "Disturbia". Hopefully they give Katy Perry a consolation prize, how embarassing? -Jay P-

"It is our hope that we can keep the song secret until the moment", said a spokeswoman. The Inaugural Ball will be broad casted on ABC. I wonder what song she will be singing?

I have to be honest, The bikini girl was not that good, she was okay but the judge impressed me, she was DEFFINITELY better than her. You have to admit, shes smart for wearing a bikini though. The girl who sang Barracuda impressed me and I can see her going far. There was also a young girl, I think she was 16, I can't remember her name but I liked her too!

"Daddys Girls"

MTV has become known for its reality TV shows. Most of them are the same, or they get old very quickly. One show that holds my attention every time it comes on is "Runs House".
