Exclusive: “Scandalous” President Obama Posters Taken Down Ahead Of LA Arrival

Published

President Barack Obama is set to arrive in Los Angeles this afternoon to attend a DNC fundraising event hosted by Scandal creator, Shonda Rhimes. The television producer, along with Scandal star, Kerry Washington, will host the President and hundreds of guests who paid thousands of dollars to attend the ritzy gala.

Los Angeles will be the third stop on Obama’s recent West Coast swing … But as he arrives to the City of Angels, the husband of First Lady Michelle Obama will be greeted by a few “scandalous” posters around Los Angeles.

An anonymous street artist stirred up some controversy around Los Angeles this week after hanging posters around Shonda’s neighborhood featuring Obama’s face with the word “Scandals” written above it. Several of the posters have been taken down ahead of Obama’s arrival, but a few still stand.

The artist was clearly trying to make a statement regarding some of the political scandals happening in the White House. The artist also pointing out the irony in Rhimes’ hosting the event. As we all know, Kerry Washington stars on the hit ABC show, as Olivia Pope, a crisis manager who handles political scandals. The words “Fast and Furious”, “Isis”, “Obamacare”, “NSA” are just some of the words floating around the poster.

On the bottom of the image, you’ll find the words “Don’t be an #asshole”, a term Shonda used during a commencement speech at Dartmouth.

To attend the soiree, held at Rhimes’ mansion in the affluent community of Hancock Park, ticket prices started as low as $1,000.00. To be present at the reception and for a photo op with the President, guests paid #10,000.00 and the maximum contribution of $32,000.00 allows donors to co-host the event and attend dinner with our nation’s President.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
