The Obama’s are going to get a rescue dog! Aw…: “Mrs. Obama says she thinks she is going to look for a rescue Portuguese Water dog who is “old enough” and a “match” for the family dynamic.” [People]

In Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, soldiers have begun fighting amongst themselves because they haven’t been paid. About 50 people have already been killed. [ALJ]

Stodgy fashion people are up in arms about Michelle Obama’s…arm. The first lady wore a sleeveless dress to Barack’s speech this week and folks are upset. What do we think? Let the woman show off her biceps and — like Angela Bassett’s limb inspiration before her — let her be an example to women everywhere to do dips and push-ups and lift weights! [CT]

As cholera spreads across Zimbabwe, claiming victim after victim, former President Mugabe still says the disease is not a national threat. Instead he threw himself a lavish birthday party the other day…really Robert? Really? Anyway, the Guardian smuggled some footage out of Zimbabwe of the real deal. Watch it in the link. [G]

In hip-hop, 50 Cent’s album Before I Self Destruct has been delayed for like the fourth time…Now he’s coming after Eminem’s album, Relapse…but my birdies told me that the release schedule was supposed to go 50 Cent, Eminem, Dr. Dre. Now Fif says it’s Eminem, 50 Cent and then (we hope, but aren’t holding our breath…) Dr. Dre. You know what I think? Interscope put the smack down and told 50 to wait- because he told me himself when I interviewed him last year that Before I Self Destruct was finished already…hm. [MTV]

The bf has no water or juice in his apt and i’m drinking blue moon like it’s mothers milk, ya’ll pray for me…
