Here's some advice if you're a retired whatever and nobody is really paying attention to you anymore (bonus if you're not good at the whole father thing): hop on a plane, go to one of the most awful humanitarian areas in the world, pretend everything is great and then just go to town politically like you know what you're doing!
Then, you'll get countless interviews and articles, where you can talk about how much good you did (even though the country threatens your country with nuclear annihilation like a day after you get back), and you'll eventually get on the cover of Newsweek… just like Dennis Rodman!

We knew our gaydar was picking up some serious signals from this guy! LOL! We kid, we kid!
Following Barack Obama's historical announcement to throw his support behind same-sex marriage, Newsweek threw his face on the cover to make a new announcement: Obama is "the first gay president."
No, he's not literally gay, but it's definitely an attention-grabbing headline! Columnist Andrew Sullivan argues that Obama's coming-of-age experience as a biracial individual is easily comparible to the struggles that members of the LGBT community face en route to discovering their personal identity.
We know U are curious, so read an excerpt from the inneresting comparison … AFTER THE JUMP!

Miuccia Prada is as opinionated as she is fashionable!
The fashion icon recently sat down with Newsweek for an explosive interview on a variety of subjects including models, being sexy, her struggle with the fashion business, and reveals what success really means to her now!
Although we already knew that she’s a fashion force to be reckoned with, we didn’t know that she’s a budding mentor on feminist rhetoric that once "hated" fashion!
Here are some HIGHlights:

Karl Lagerfeld sure is getting grumpy in his old age!
During a press conference on Friday the designer took a moment to slam Newsweek editor Tina Brown after reporter asked what he thought about Robin Givhan calling him "overrated" in the February 6th issue.
Unkle Karl said:
"First of all, Tina Brown’s magazine is not doing well at all. She is dying. I’m sorry for Tina Brown, who was such a success at Vanity Fair, to go down with a shitty little paper like this. I’m sorry."
Tina was quick to respond to Karl's quip, tweeting:
"The Kaiser doth protest too much! "Diet issue"? Newsweek ads up 27% for Q1"
For some reason we have a feeling this squabble is far from over.

Meryl Streep is a goddess, plain and simple.
Woman werks it better than almost any actress in town without doing it the hardest. She's just a bad b*tch all around; we can't get enough of her!!
And U know we're getting ourselves a copy of this Newsweek magazine! She's donned in The Iron Lady gear to invoke Margaret Thatcher. Hot!
U should pick up a copy too! Marg used to always do interviews for the political mag, so this issue is kind of a wink to the lovely lady.

It might be one of her best interviews to date, with a comprehensive look at not only the movie, but of the woman behind the lens herself.
Angelina Jolie sat down with Newsweek while in Bosnia making her directorial debut and shared with the reporter her process in approaching her endeavour. To hear her speak about the project with such passion is one thing, but to hear how she sat in a room with this reporter, drinking and having a merry time for eight hours is another. Sometimes, we forget that people like herself need time to relax and be normal themselves - as normal as it is to spend 8 hours talking about a movie that you yourself made!
Here are some HIGHlights from Angie's interview with Newsweek:
