For those unfamiliar, Us Weekly is a tabloid a few steps below People Magazine and a few notches above Star Magazine.
Us successfully broke the biggest scandal of the past few decades (the time Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson), but the magazine also incorrectly claimed that Kourtney Kardashian is “done” with baby-daddy Scott Disick –hey, you win some, you lose some.
Bottom line: Us is extremely high-quality journalism. So naturally, the president of the United States is going to use it as a platform to dish about (in hot pink bubble letters!) his favorite celebrities, opposite other quality content — such as, perhaps, a photo montage of singer Taylor Swift making out with Conor Kennedy in a quaint New England town.
From Us Weekly:
“Ever wanted to ask the President of the United States a question? Here’s the chance, because President Barack Obama wants to hear from Us!
As Obama, 51, campaigns for re-election in a race with Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the Commander-in-Chief will answer questions from Us Weekly’s readers — about his platform, his opponent, life at home in the White House with Michelle, Sasha, Malia and Bo, touring America on the campaign trail, his favorite celebs (Beyonce and Jay-Z, perhaps?) and more!”
Us’ editors noted that GOP nominee Mitt Romney declined to participate in the Q&A — although we’re inclined to believe the editorial board isn’t complaining.
