Even though Blindie is wondering why the black friend has to be singing, we love that he’s singing the ’80s hit “Broken Wings” by Mr. Mister.

Check out more of Kenny in the “outtakes” clip.

Serena Williams Wins 4th Australian Open And 10th Grand Slam

Tennis champion Serena Williams beat Russian player Dinara Safina on Saturday with a 6-0 6-3 victory to win the Australian Open crown and earn $2million, topping the list of prize-winning women in sports.

Serena payed hommage to tennis legend Billie Jean King, a lifelong advocate against sexism who paved the way for women to compete and earn prizemoney equivalent of male counterparts.

“You look at people like Billie Jean King….you really appreciate the people, the pioneers, the work they’ve done to get me in a position to have an opportunity to be called even the highest-earning female tennis player, ” Williams said.

This is Serena Williams fourth Australian Open title and her tenth Grand Slam.

Obama Attends Alfalfa Club’s Roast On Capitol Hill And Aims Jokes At Rahm Emanuel

President Barack Obama served as headline speaker for the annual Alfalfa Dinner roast on Saturday in Washington D.C. and let loose with a few jokes at his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

The White House released a few of the President’s zingers which took aim at Emanuel’s penchant for profanity. “It was actually Rahm’s idea to do the swearing-in ceremony again,” Obama said. “Of course, for Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony, ” he joked.

The President also made light of his recent blackberry controversy saying, “In just the first few weeks, I’ve had to engage in some of the toughest diplomacy of my life. And that was just to keep my Blackberry.”

Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin was also in attendance but, since the black-tie affair traditionally bars reporters from attending, it is not known whether the President poked fun at the Caribou Barbie. We hope someone did.
