Stylish First Lady Michelle Obama Is Cool and Forward-Thinking; Invites Common To Perform At White House


Some people just FELL OUT at the notion of Common performing at the White House. In my opinion (which is close to a fact), this world is changing and these old-thinking people need to get with the program. It's OK to critique a person, but not good for someone to be generally set into their own ways, not giving anyone a chance (just as long as that new 'chance' is not destructive to livelihood).

Of course people criticized Michelle Obama for promoting a man whose lyrics included 'cop killing' (which would fall in line as 'destructive') but I guess Obama took it as an art, not an action. See what she said below:

“We had a poetry session and we invited young kids in just last week from all over the country. And they talked to some of the most outstanding poets, and they read their poetry in the state room. And then we had a poetry night and Common was there. He’s very cute. But everybody from poet laureates to hip-hop folks, being able to mix up the world in that very interesting way, the White House allows you to do that.”
