First Katy Perry upset Lady Gaga with the #1 record (‘Roar’) over Gaga’s ‘Applause’ last August. Now Katy has taken Lady Gaga’s “Queen of Twitter” crown! Katy made twitter history yesterday when she reached 50 MILLION twitter followers. Imagine having that many people follow you!
However, it sounds like Lady Gaga had already been “dethroned.” Apparently Justin Bieber surpassed her in number of twitter followers last January with over 49 million twitter followers, and Katy inched past him last November. Justin passed President Barack Obama, who had a little over 41 millionMore >
Sasha Obama let out a big yawn during her father’s inaugural address today, making for a moment she will never, ever live down at home.
Kids will be kids.Sasha Obama Yawn
During one pause by President Barack Obama, cameras cut to Sasha, sister Malia, and mother Michelle Obama; Sasha yawned for the whole U.S. to see.

She’s also 11, and the speech – while stirring in rhetoric, moving in its evocation of American greatness, andMore >
Mitt Romney’s final vote total in the 2012 presidential election has been tallied, and the Republican challenger received – wait for it – 47 percent of the vote.
Yes, it took this entire time to finalize it (you just didn’t hear about it because it wasn’t close), and Romney came in almost exactly at the 47 percent figure.
47.2 percent to be exact.
Many will find the number appropriate and ironic, as Romney made waves when a secret video of him talking with donors surfaced late in the campaign season.
In the 47 percent video, he said that segment of the country would never voteMore >
A full two hours after a midnight deadline, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly passed a deal Tuesday to avert the feared fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cut.
The bipartisan bill passed 89-8.
Budget cuts will be put off for two months and income tax cuts for individuals earning less than $400,000 or couples earning less than $450,000 are preserved.
The measure now goes to the U.S. House where it faces an uncertain future in the GOP-controlled body. However, the Senate’s margin of passage sends a message.
It is not expected that the House will reject the bill (althoughMore >

A woman has been fired and reported to the U.S. Secret Service for a racial slur and apparent assassination threat against President Barack Obama on Facebook.
According to California’s Modesto Bee, Denise Helms, 22, went OFF on the social networking site after Obama won reelection over Mitt Romney Tuesday.
She called Obama the n-word, adding that “maybe he will be assassinated” this term.
Just kidding? Evidently not. Helms was then interviewed by a Sacramento TV station … and she “wouldn’t mind one bit” if someone assassinated Obama.
Helms was fired Thursday from her job atMore >
