Michelle Obama To Release A Hip-Hop Album To Fight Childhood Obesity!

Michelle Obama releasing a hip-hop album???

Sounds pretty crazy, right? Well as insane as it might sound, it will actually become a reality as the First Lady plans on dropping a record to encourage kids to eat right and stay healthy!

Mrs. O has played a huge role in the fight against childhood obesity, and with some help from her organization Let's Move!, she hopes to keep kids healthy through the power of music!

White House assistant chef Sam Kass says hip-hop music is the perfect platform to get the message across to today's kids:

"Cultural leaders and visionaries in our country can give these messages to kids in a way that's not preachy. Kids are going to be dancing and listening to the music. I think hip-hop in particular – so many kids love hip-hop. It's such a core part of our culture."

What a great idea!!

But before you get excited about the First Lady stepping behind the mic and spitting some mad rhymes, it sounds like she'll be keeping the singing to the professionals!

The album, titled Songs For A Healthier America is set to be released September 30th and will feature a wide array of artists including Matisyahu, Travis Barker, Ariana Grande, Ashanti, DMC, and MANY more!

Ch-ch-check out the first song Everybody featuring Jordin Sparks and Doug E. Fresh (above)! Even Dr. Oz gets in on the action!!

Obama Was Sent A Letter With RICIN In It — Washington On Alert!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaScary!

president obama white house poison ricin scare mail

Luckily for President Obama, the safeguards in place to detect people sending awful chemicals to him in the mail work pretty damn well!

Apparently letters meant for Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi. contained traces of ricin — a highly toxic, naturally occurring protein which can kill an adult with just a few grains as small as table salt — and this message:

"To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."

The letters were contained at off-site White House and Senate mail rooms, and all of them were signed:

"I am KC and I approve this message."

SUPER scary, especially with what's been going on in Boston! Luckily, it's looking like there's no link between the two. A confirmation of the level of ricin is expected sometime today. There is no specific test for exposure and no antidote once exposed.

The good news from this is that the protection that they have in place worked!

Wow, the world really needs to stop it with this whole trying to harm others stuff. We're getting pretty tired of hearing that people think it's okay to hurt their fellow man for any reason!

Is Chris Christie's Health A Time Bomb??

Filed under: PolitikFitnessHealthScary!

We're glad that Chris Christie makes light of people talking about his weight — otherwise, it might be too hard to handle with the constant criticism. On Monday, he even helped David Letterman make a joke about it!

On the flip-side, his weight is a real issue. Especially if he wants to keep office or move onto more important ones!

CNN just talked to a former White House physician who says that Chris's health is so worrisome, that she would even refer to it as a 'time bomb.' Of course we would like him to be healthier, and we're sure he wants to be.

Weight problems are a serious issue and getting them under control is not an easy task. We just hope Chris can step up to the challenge soon!!

Check out the interview (above) to hear what the doc has to say!
