Morning Tidbits

First Lady Michelle Obama got trendy and dare I say...sexy...at last night's White House poetry slam event in her off the shoulder embellished blouse.  The Prez and First Lady invited radio and tv personalities like Big Boy of Big Boy's Neighborhood, James Earl Jones, and Tatyana Ali out to the event.  And the First Couple spoke about the importance of poetry and spoken word and culture for our society.  First Lady is working it out with this look. Diddy was spotted on the set of his new movie Get Him To The Greek yesterday in L.A.:

Clearly it's a fight scene that I don't even know if it'll be believable or not. More on the set pics of Diddy and Playboy's first black Playmate of the Year when you read the rest...

*snickers* In other news, Playboy has picked its first ever African Playmate of the Year:

She's Ida Ljungqvist and she's gorgeous.

She's Tanzanian (and half Swedish) to be exact and went from being a Bebe staffer to posing nude for Hef.  And unlike these celeb chicks putting out amateur nude pics for free, at least she's getting paid for it.  Sad that's the two choices at hand right now.  Anywho, she wins $100,000, a brand new Mazada 6, and her own layout in an upcoming issue.  Yippee.

The quality of living in TZ is so much better for them than in America.While Americans are losing their and struggling to pay their credit card bills, Tanzania is booming! I know its so hard for many of you to that an Africa nation would actually be booming economically and socially…because all you know about Africa are what you see on those Save the Children commercials! HA! SMH. PREACH!!!!

Umm. . .can we NOT have a post with a playmate and the first Lady together? I appreciate and celebrate the latter. HOWEVER, am I supposed to be proud to be black because we "finally" have a Playmate of the Year? seems like it. well, Do your Thing, Ida. You are a beautiful young woman. And I am sure that there is more to you than what is underneath of your dress.

The Tanzanian girl is GORGEOUS, i think she could do big things in the modelling industry but my girl here is too beautiful to pose for play boy, but then again if she likes it, then props to her. and Mrs O is another gorgeous woman, seriously she's my role model ;-)

Well Tasha said she's the first african playmate not the first african-american playmate, despite all the hate on here(and yet these same chicks are quick to defend trashy Amber Rose lol), I think this Ida girl is very pretty, I've seen playboy magazines before and unlike King magazine and other copies Playboy does pay their models very well, no hate here

Sweetheart I am half latina and half black and haven't had any special treatment or extra advantage. It kills me that so many all black people are quick to try and look mixed with weave and contacts and yet there's a problem with people that are mixed that have made something of themselves? I say stop complaining and do something with your own life instead of bashing someone else

jluv7: If PB is going to get a black chic,get one that ain’t mixed and got a real black name. Just keeping it real. Umm I happen to be mixed and have a latin name..that doesn't make a person any less black just because they don't have a stereotypical black name..that is so ignorant

I guess Heff feels like he's doing "us"(women of color) a service by making a black playmate of the year. He can have that sh**! I wouldn't want to pose for such a discriminatory magazine anyway. And is Michelle wearing a top or is it a dress? I need that ASAP. Does anyone know who designed it?

PREGNANCY SUX!: all first

PREGNANCY SUX!: all first ladies have an unspoken rule to be social but the obamas are making an effort to relate to all people on all levels. and pretty people always get more shine. the obamas simply look better than scary ass laura bush. barbara bush is too ugly for words let alone cameras.a boost in morale IS a fix for the recession. people need to feel good about the powers that be.albeit short lived, it was the same way with the kennedy’s. Yardy: I would not attack you I think we are all facinated by the Obamas and everything they do IS news so that is why you are seeing so much non “work” press coverage. Trust me, Pres O is on his grind, doing his thing to get this mess fixed and in the mean time, I for one cannot get enough of the first family!! Sheesh, I am a presidential gropie Alexandrite Pearl: Do you spend all your time focused on cleaning up your messes? There has to be some kind of balance. Not jumping on you, but he spends all day in the Oval Office. The evenings belong to family and friends. I personally see nothing wrong with what they are doing. Still making time for each other is key not matter who you are or what you do. Thanks for not attacking. I guess I pay more attention now, so it seems k=like alot. But I love them regardless!!!

CEO: Please, Please, Please

CEO: Please, Please, Please tell me that the Mazda was a typo…She takes all her clothes off for the world to see and all she gets is $100,000 and a Mazda! Pure Comedy!!! My parents bought me a Mazda when I graduated from High School, I make more than 2x’s what she received for being naked. I make it with all my dignity and all my clothes on AND I drive a Mercedes Benz. Not bragging…just letting any of the young girls who may cruise the site know that there’s a way to make money without resorting to panty-dropping with old A$$ Hef. AMEN!...education will take you a lot further in real life!

She is also half white. I think her daddy is Scandanavian or something. So they didn't pick a "real" African. But, I guess she is like any other African American with slave ancestry. Lol.

This is progress? Being the

This is progress? Being the first African playmate of the year? We're proud because some nasty old white man finds "us" sexually attractive. How groundbreaking! We're proud because now white men will be jacking off to an African (HALF African, mind you) woman and not the usual blondes??? As a Tanzanian, I was very disappointed to see this. GET IT TOGETHER PEOPLE! The fact that Black is "in" like some little trend right now, is actually a problem. All trends that are "in" eventually go "OUT". But it's sad that so many of you are buying this facade of progress. The saddest part about it is that the reason why people are so happy by all these black "firsts" is because we're finally being "accepted" by white people! How embarrassing...

THAT IS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT

THAT IS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT BEING PLAYMATE OF THE YEAR! That is HARD! Do you know how many women flood that magazine with requests to be photographed? Playboy doesn't take every stripper that calls, you have to have other qualities to be seriously considered. The magazine's readers also weigh in, so it's cool that they are comfortable with a beautiful black woman. Playboy has been a huge launching pad for many entertainment careers. I personally would never do it, but not every has the same hang ups about being photographed nude.
