Love In This…White House…

ZOMG Usher is visiting the White House today, it appears. The singer (or, as Politico called him, the “pop sensation”) made a stop to chat with White House staff about, like, Africa and global issues and stuff. Unfortunately, Mr. Raymond just missed President Obama, who is in Iowa today celebrating Earth Day by stumping for wind power. Insert “Trading Places” reference here.

On a personal side note, this reminds me of November 3rd, 2008, when I was going to the final Obama rally in VA while a friend of mine was covering the Usher concert in New York for Seventeen magazine. Actual text message received: “Oh man Usher just took his shirt off! Maybe Obama will too.”

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
