“If I had one musical hero, it would have to be Stevie Wonder,” says Obama, who grew up on Seventies R&B and rock staples including Earth, Wind and Fire, Elton John and the Rolling Stones. “When I was at that point where you start getting involved in music, Stevie had that run with Music of My Mind, Talking Book, Fulfillingness’ First Finale and Innervisions, and then Songs in the Key of Life. Those are as brilliant a set of five albums as we’ve ever seen.”You can get a sneak peek of the upcoming July cover story, including audio at RollingStone.com

T.I. headlined the show and made numerous references to “haters” who continue running their mouths about him. T.I. returned Lo’s earlier jabs by abruptly stopping a song, shouting out “Get, Get, Get It!” and doing a mock Shawty Lo dance to “oohs” from the sold out crowd. [SEE ABOVE VIDEO] Feeling he had made his point, the “King of South” shouted out Bankhead, that he owns Atlanta, and that “This is my Birthday Bash! I own this sh*t!”

Shock jock Wendy Williams' husband plotted to kill a Hot 97 rival DJ [Miss Jones] for badmouthing his wife on the air, an explosive federal lawsuit filed charges Wednesday.No. Words.
Kevin Hunter, who is married to Williams, sought out a male WBLS employee for help in finding a hitman to rub out Hot 97 personality Tarsha Jones, the lawsuit claims.
Hunter "was apparently angry over some comments that Miss Jones made about his wife on the air," the lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court claims. [SOURCE]
"I decided to not fire, not get rid of, but to give [my mother] the ultimate compliment — to retire her to be a full-time grandmother.Call it what you want, it was involuntary on her part I believe. She didn’t even go to the wedding because she didn’t agree with the decision to marry
"My mother and I decided to change her situation, together," he adds. "There was a conversation. I didn't write her a letter or pink slip her."
“I’m good at making love, but I’m not good at being in love. It’s a conscious decision every day to love the person you’re with.”
The record leaked a couple of days ago. This DJ, Chuck T, is claiming that he leaked it. This album was delayed a year because of another leak. What goes through your mind after all this, that the week before the official release there's this leak?Did you pick up the album or downloaded it? I had to download it, you know, for research purposes! Check out the rest of the Q&A session here.
Nothing goes through my mind. It harms me in no way because, first of all, I am good music. Bootlegged or not, what you just heard, or what you will hear, is great. And that's the point I'm trying to get across at the end of the day and the beginning of the morning: that I'm great. Things I say have value and I would love for you to value them, however you get it. I don't really care about the leak or the DJs that's leaking it. I'm glad that people even care enough about it to make this situation a topic.
It wouldn't bother you if people decided to download it instead of going out and buying it?
This is my 15th year. This is what I do and I'm very, very straight. I don't need anything. With my fanbase, I know—whether it's downloaded, leaked or not—I know when I step on stage, I'm going to get the same reaction that I always get. That's what matters to me.
