The rumours are true! Sultry soul singer Sade has resurfaced and returned to the recording studio to work on a new album with her band.

A release date hasn’t been confirmed, although the fansite sade2009.com reported the date of November 24, but bandmember Stuart Matthewman, a.k.a. Cottonbelly confirmed there is an album in the works that won’t be finished until “later in the year.”

A source at Sony also confirmed, “She is in the studio and the album will come when it is ready,” and said, “You don’t wait for years for one and then rush it.”

Sade’s last album “Lover’s Rock” was released in 2000 and sold 3.9 million copies in the U.S.

A parody of Kanye West‘s song “Amazing” created by Kno of CunninLynguists is serving as a hilarious musical tribute to the shortcomings of caucasian NBA players and gaining popularity online.

Of course the song is filled with stereotypes, and sure it’s offensive, but it’s funny as hell! And for those who don’t agree, the video creator has this message: “I reserve my right, as a white guy cut from the JV team in 10th grade, to indulge in self-parody. Sensitive people, save your energy and faux-disgust for something that really matters, kthnx. Those of you without a stick up your ass, enjoy!”

Here are just a few snippets of the lyrics:

I’m caucasian
It’s the reason
Michael Jordan’s hittin’ 40 this evenin’

I’m exhausted, barely breathing
I been sittin on the bench all season

And no matter what they’ll never pass it to me
My range is as far as my arms can reach

Im caucasian / White like salt packs
If I ain’t translucent / What you call that?
I’m notorious / spin move laborious
Lucky if I get minutes with the Warriors
I like mayonnaise, I like sodium
We prolly lost if you see me at the podium

I’m caucasian
So caucasian

President Barack Obama made good on a campaign promise to wife Michelle and treated her to dinner and a Broadway show in New York City on Saturday.

The first couple arrived in Manhattan on a Marine One helicopter after flying into JFK airport aboard a Gulfstream 500 jet. They dined at the Greenwich Villge restaurant Blue Hill and took in the revival of August Wilson’s “Joe Turner’s Come Home” at the Belasco Theatre in midtown. Crowds lined the streets, cheering and waving, as the presidential motorcade made its way through the streets.

Always one to find fault with the Obama administration, the Republic National Committee crticized the President for jetting to New York for what they deemed as “a night on the town” during a recession and as General Motors prepares to file for bankruptcy -the fourth largest in U.S. history.

The Obamas paid for dinner and theatre tickets themselves while taxpayers will foot the bill for the plane ride, estimated by The New York Post at $24,000 per aircraft (3 were required for the trip), and for police security.
