Barack Obama delivered his final speech on Tuesday night and brought tears to the eyes of citizens across the globe, including his eldest daughter, Malia.

Cameras captured Malia sitting next to her mother, First Lady Michelle Obama, wiping her eyes throughout the speech, moved by what her father was saying.  But if you watched, you probably realized there was one little Obama missing: Sasha.

POTUS’ farewell speech became a trending topic on social media on Tuesday, but folks were equally interested in knowing where his 15-year-old daughter was. But rest assured, there was a perfectly good excuse for Sasha’s absence.

According to a White House official, FLOTUS’ daughter had an exam at school on Wednesday morning so she stayed in Washington D.C. to study. Now, that is what we call dedicated.

Sasha might’ve missed the address, but that didn’t stop Obama from raving about his two daughters. “Under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women. You are smart and you are beautiful,” he said. “But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion.”

He added, “You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I have done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad.”

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



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 crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard 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 it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

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

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and 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.
