Former President Barack Obama Surprised a Group of Teen Interns In South Side Chicago.

Imagine: you’re having a normal day as an intern at the Obama Foundation in South Side Chicago when, all of a sudden, Former President Barack Obama shows up.

That’s what happened to a group of 13 interns at the Obama Foundation this week, and needless to say, they were all very surprised.

“Part of the goal of this program is to expose you to what’s possible,” Obama said during his visit. “All of you all are focused in a way that I can’t say I necessarily was when I was your age. So you guys are already ahead of the game.”

The Chicago Sun-Times explains that the teens are interns for the Obama Youth Jobs Corps, which is a partnership between Obama’s foundation and nonprofit development organization Urban Alliance. Both are working to get teens ready for the workforce.

Aubrey O’Day Says Diddy Never Finishes What He Starts.

Everyone seems to be pretty excited about the forthcoming Making the Band reboot — except for Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day.

Upon hearing the news of the show’s return, O’Day told The Blast that while she’s all for the series making its comeback, she also wants a new show for her, the DK ladies, and the guys of Day26.

“I’m happy when any new artist gets an opportunity to shine and to develop, but I do think that MTV needs to bring back, along with ‘Making the Band,’ a Danity Kane show with our family that we created on the network with Day26, Donnie Klang,” she said. “We won’t stop until we get it.”

She added, “I think it would be really interesting to see Diddy repair what he broke on national television. I think it would be really interesting for him to show the world that he can come full circle with redemption with all of us. I think he needs to finish what he started.”
