Taylor Swift and Jay-Z get jabbed in President Obama’s speech!
Poor Taylor Swift. It’s been a tough week for the beautiful singer song writer! Taylor has been busy doing sell out concerts across America but still can’t seem to keep out of the news.
Just in the last week Taylor has recently purchased a gorgeous new seaside mansion and annoyingly, has exboyfriend who just started dating a much older mother of 1. Now the singer has to put up with the American President making fun of her!
At the Annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Obama jokingly referenced the singer in a 30 minute speech that had many pop culture references in it.
“My charm offensive has helped me learn some interesting things about what’s going on in Congress — turns out, absolutely nothing,” Obama said to star studded audience.
“But the point of my charm offensive is simple: We need to make progress on some important issues. Take the sequester: Republicans fell in love with this thing, and now they can’t stop talking about how much they hate it. It’s like we’re trapped in a Taylor Swift album.”
Taylor wasn’t safe either with Beyonce and Jay-Z’s controversial trip to Cuba getting a mention.
“Yes, maybe I have lost a step, but some things are out of my control — for example, this whole controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba. It’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems but now Jay-Z is one.”
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a tradition in place since 1920 for journalists that cover the White House, to meet and mix but in more recent years it has been opened up to entertainers. Even Lindsay Lohan got an invite.
