Michelle Obama shared Barack’s Valentine’s Day present with the world. 

If you aim to have a relationship like Barack and Michelle, it will probably come in handy. It’s a Spotify playlist that includes 44 of their favourite tunes (because Barack was the 44th President of the United States) and it includes a surprising selection of artists.

Not often you see a playlist that goes from Etta James and Stevie Wonder to Calvin Harris and Ed Sheeran. There’s a bit of Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé and Rihanna sprinkled in for good measure, as well as Cyndi Lauper, Elton John and Adele.

The pair, who have been married for 25 years, wished each other Happy Valentine’s Day over Twitter.

It’s not often Barack Obama takes to Twitter these days (compared to *SOME* presidents), but he tweeted a photo of himself with Michelle and said she makes “every day and every place better.”

Paris Hilton celebrated Valentine’s Day by releasing a new single.

The 36-year-old is still working on her music career, despite the fact that most of us tuned out after Stars Are Blind. It’s been twelve years since the release of her debut single Stars Are Blind (which reached number 4 in the Irish singles charts back in 2006) and all we can really say is… This song is no Stars Are Blind.

She says the song was inspired by her engagement.

I felt it was the perfect time to release it because not only is it Valentine’s Day, but I got engaged and am about to get married. I’m at the next phase of my life and growing up. I’m just so happy and feel so blessed to have found my other half.

Paris also said that her fiancé “had tears in his eyes” the first time he heard it. (Cosmopolitan)

I’m an emotional gangsta !THATS WHY!

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

Despite the fact that Cardi B recently insisted that she was ‘just getting fat‘ and was not pregnant, rumours that she’s expecting a baby are still flying around. 

According to TMZ, Cardi B’s team were telling venue staff that she was trying to avoid the “party atmosphere” over the Super Bowl weekend.

The rapper had performed in Minneapolis and was due to be escorted to the VIP room before one of her reps said she’d prefer to hang out near the stage and drink Fiji water.

TMZ were told that this rep explained to venue staff that Cardi B was 3 -4 months pregnant. (XXL Mag)
