Diddy dedicated his new fragrance “I Am King” to President-Elect Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali, and Martin Luther King Jr. In true Diddy fashion, Diddy positioned the clip as his James Bond audition tape. (FYI: Jamie Foxx also wants to be the first black James Bond. Let the competition begin!) “I Am King” will be sold exclusively at Macy’s this December. Anyhow, check out the mini-movie Diddy made in support of his latest scent.

First Lady-Elect Michelle Obama appeared on the December 1st edition of “Newsweek” magazine. Interviewed by Allison Samuels Observes, Michelle talked about wanting to change and knock down the stereotype of African-American women in America as the First Lady. The accompanying headline reads “The Meaning of Michelle.” Did anyone catch Barack and Michelle’s Barbara Walters interview on Wednesday night? Aren’t those two adorable?

The “American Idol” winner had the following to say about her new fashion gig:

“I am so excited that Wet Seal and I have been able to create a line of clothing that will appeal to more girls than ever before. The holiday season is my favorite time of year, and I can’t wait to see girls look cute, feel good and celebrate in style.”

So far I like the black and pink prom-type dress showed in the photo collage that I made. Check out the full collection here.

To all who celebrated today’s holiday – Happpy Thanksgiving!

Gabrielle talked to USA Today about working with Beyonce: “I like Beyoncé because the check cleared, and if it didn’t, I’d know where to find her,” joked Union, dressed in navy blue Reem Acra. “She’s obviously incredibly talented. When you watch her transform into Etta James and really channel her and her pain and that journey, it’s powerful. As a boss and as a fellow actress, she’s the bomb.”

The 2008 American Music Awards (on ABC last night) was a event of firsts. Many of the artists like (Rihanna and Kanye West) nominated picked up their first AMA’s. Everyone big in the music business was on the scene to pick up their award and they also hit the stage.

Rihanna (in a ruffled Zac Posen dress) walked away with two AMA’s for “Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist” and “Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist.” She (in Alexander McQueen thigh-high boots) hit the stage to perform “Rehab” without disappointedly Justin Timberlake.

Kanye West picked up one for Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Male Artist. His 2007 album, “Graduation” won favorite rap/hip-hop album. He (in his clothing line design Pastelle) even compared himself to Elvis during his acceptance speech. ‘It’s our responsibility as musicians to keep pushing each other. We will be the new Beatles, the new [Jimi] Hendrix. I want to be Elvis.”

Beyonce Knowles did not attend the red carpet arrivals but she let her alter-ego Sasha Fierce performed her hit, “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” in a black and white silk Armani Privé jacket. Sasha had the crowd on their feet!

The Alicia Keys “Superwoman” remix performance with Kathleen Battle and Queen Latifah was refreshing . Alicia Keys mixed rap and R&B with classical music and the combination was quite pleasant. I even overlooked the fact that Latifah’s mic wasn’t on when she first hit the stage.
