President Obama
President Obama appeared on Jerry Seinfeld's show "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" on Wednesday. Jerry says the big boss has cracked just enough funny lines to qualify as a comedian.

Seinfeld asked Obama if being president is like playing chess. "Is it chess? Is it liar's poker?" Obama said it's not like chess, it's more like football.

Obama: “That’s interesting. That was a good question. It’s probably most like football.”

Seinfeld: “Football.”

Jason Alexander
The hit 90s TV show Seinfeld is still widely regarded today as one of the best shows of all-time. While some of the stars of the show have moved on to other projects, it's understandable that when one of them does an interview even now, they are still asked about their experience on the "show about nothing".

And so it was this week for Jason Alexander, when he appeared on The Howard Stern Show. Alexander was asked by Stern about one of the most infamous moments in the show's history that concerned Alexander's character George Costanza and his character's fiance Susan, played by actress Hei...

Review Of Wale's Fourth Studio Album

4/7/2015 10:58am EDT
Review: Wale Impresses On ‘The Album About Nothing’
An artist must be bold and fearless to title an album The Album About Nothing. That’s exactly what MMG rapper Wale does on his fourth studio album. The rollout for The Album About Nothing was rather reserved and somewhat enigmatic. That enigmatic sentiment can be felt throughout the course of The Album About Nothing, an effort with notable differences from The Gifted. Adding to both enigma and concept – the use of Jerry Seinfeld vocal samples – go figure!

“The Intro About Nothing” sets the tone, with Wale spitting agilely, backed by soulful, production. He’s ‘stretched’ more on the c...
