President Obama keeps proving why he’s the coolest president ever. On Monday, Obama hosted his inaugural South By South Lawn Festival, and as expected, it was pretty epic. After attending South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, Obama said he was inspired to host his own festival, and it was definitely turnt.

The day-long event convened musicians, filmmakers and technologists in the nation’s capital for a freewheeling “festival of ideas, art and action.” Besides performing some spoken word on the lawn, Common, Bilal, Robert Glasper, Karriem Riggins, Derrick Hodge, Keyon Harrold and Elenia  performed inside the White House.

Exhibitors, like this guy, showcased virtual-reality experiences and modern-art installations.

There was a screening of short films produced by students.

After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.

Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
