Kanye West for the White House in 2020 strikes President Barack Obama as "strange," even "cray."
But Obama playfully told a crowd of Democratic donors in San Francisco Saturday at a fundraiser headlined by West that he has some important advice to share with the would-be candidate.
"Kanye is thinking about running...for speaker of the House!" Obama joked, alluding to the recent upheaval on Capitol Hill. "It couldn’t get any stranger. But in case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing –- or as he calls it, 'peezy' –- I do have some advice for him.
"First of all,…

Meghan Trainor’s song for The Peanuts Movie soundtrack comes out next week, but now we've got our first official taste of the upbeat tune.
The 20-second snippet of “Better When I’m Dancin’” is pure family-friendly fun. “I feel better when I’m dancin’/Yeah yeah/Don’t you know/We can do this together/Bet you’ll feel better when you’re dancin’,” Meghan sings.
Over the summer, she told People magazine what inspired her to write the tune.

With her signature high pony and perfectly-applied cat-eye always in place, Ariana Grande is a beauty icon for fans everywhere. In an interview in the latest issue of People magazine, the singer reveals the beauty products she simply can’t live without.
“I’m a big fan of mascara, to the point where my makeup artist Daniel Chinchilla will be like, ‘Enough’!” she says. “I have 75 [tubes] -- kidding! I have a bunch, but I love MAC.”
And because of her grueling schedule, she makes sure to always have concealer on hand. “I don’t sleep much, so I need concealer in…
Selena Gomez said she never had to deal with fat-shamers until pictures of her on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last April surfaced online.
"It was the first time I'd ever been called fat," she said on Friday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "But it was weird because it's not just, 'Oh she's fat.' It's like, 'She's a mess. She's gone off the deep end.' I'm like, 'Because I'm on a vacation wearing a bathing suit?'"
Selena also explained why she responded to the cyber-bullies by posting a sexy photo of herself in a bathing suit on Instagram. "Look, I don't want them to…
As if seeing Justin Bieber completely naked online wasn't startling enough, the singer's dad just made things even weirder.
While Justin’s legal team is threatening legal action after those naked vacation pics of the singer went viral, his father Jeremy Bieber isn't outraged: he actually appears to be boasting about the size of his son's manhood on Twitter.
“What do you feed that thing. #proud daddy,” Jeremy tweeted, presumably in the response to the photos.
Well, that’s awkward. The Bieb hasn’t yet responded to his dad’s comment.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, lawyers for Justin have filed a cease-and-desist letter…
Nick Jonas has released the moody new video to accompany his hip-hop-influenced jam, “Area Code.”
In the black-and-white clip, a hoodie-wearing Nick sings in the rain, takes the stage to perform for a large crowd, and then hops on a helicopter and takes off.
“Don’t know why I do it but I do/Every time I have a drink of two/I get it bad for you,” he sings on the partially autotuned track.
Nick hinted his new album -- which will come out sometime early next year -- would have more of a hip-hop, soulful sound, and this song fits that…
