As famous folks like actress Amy Poehler celebrated his influence, Miguel told MTV News that he hopes to work with President Obama one day on projects that will influence families and American citizens.  He said, 

"...And I think family is, having a great family, or just two people in the family that help raise a child makes a huge difference on the kind of citizen they become and how competent a citizen they will be. And if there's anything we can do socially, economically or culturally to encourage that or affect that, that's something I'm interested in collaborating for."

LOL! I keep thinking the same

LOL! I keep thinking the same thing! I wonder if he suffers from some kind of psychosis. His overall persona is just...strange. He definately suffers from delusions of grandeur though :-)

Estelle is so under rated.

Estelle is so under rated. She is a GREAT talent and should be at a higher level than rihanna and nicki minaj. Sick of justin timberlake and that suit and tie CRAP Cicely looks a mess The white blood in vanessa williams that helped make her a young beauty, just might turn her into a cartoon character like most white ladies. Gayle looks great. One has to wonder why she has no man LOL maybe the reason is obvious LOL

Nice looking crowd overall . Congratulations to Mr Ocean too.

Estelle continues on her

Estelle continues on her decline I see. WTF is she wearing?!!!. Shonda, I love your work but please give Jeannette Jenkins a call! I thought Frank Ocean was Jamie Foxx in the first picture. My bad!

When a person knows they have

When a person knows they have the talent and the work ethics, and have to sit around and watch NO TALENTS like frog frank ocean, and no dancing/no singing rihanna and nicki get all the glory it is tiring, and draining. Many of our greats are getting very tired of seeing no talents get all the glory. If I were Estelle I would just go back home to England because America has sunk into the land of low performers and no talents, then they wonder why our kids aren't performing in schools. Why should they when they see lazy undisciplined low performers getting all the shine.

Heaven forbid Frank Ocean

Heaven forbid Frank Ocean should touch Justin's wack a$$. I don't like this album~ well maybe 1 song and it's not that suit and tie crap. Even though he sucks ~ Justin should give acting a second go round. And as for Frank . . . I would've thought being gay ~ he would've chosen a more fabulous moniker than that gov't weiner first name.

Girl I went out and bought

Girl I went out and bought that JT album and it is some garbage. I dont even listen to it. I do like Justin as a singer and an actor in general.

In my opinion they're giving

In my opinion they're giving Frank Ocean this award because he announced he was gay (the week his album was released) because his singing is really bad. Seems like publicly embracing homosexuality gets you a pat on the back in the media. Congratulations to Miguel, he actually deserves all the recognition he's getting.

Is Frank Ocean trying to look

Is Frank Ocean trying to look like a f**king creep in every pic he takes or is that just how he looks? He's a handsome man but the facial expressions on that kid are so disturbing.
