Leona Lewis Turns Down President Obama

Leona Lewis Turns Down President Obama

Leona Lewis smiles for the cameras as she makes her way to her terminal at the LAX airport on Monday (June 1).

The 24-year-old singer has reportedly turned down an invitation by President Barack Obama to the White House. “Leona was thrilled to be invited to dinner by Obama. She really wanted to meet him and his wife Michelle – who is a big fan and has her Spirit album. They both think she is a strong, inspirational and talented young woman who is a fantastic role model for children,” a source told The Mirror.

“They would love her to get involved in some of their charity projects. But it was really unfortunate that it clashed with her tight schedule to get her second album done,” the source said. “Leona would have felt it a real honor to sing for him too. So if Barack ever asks again, she’ll jump at the chance.”

dumb move.

# 2

People think it doesn’t matter that the Obama’s insulted the British prime minister and his wife. And Michelle went on to mug their Queen and the Obama’s didn’t mind their manners with the Queen. But way down deep inside “it matters”.

Say what you will about George and Laura they were always properly respectful to everyone, not just their friends.

# 2… What makes you think that? Something wrong/ backwards or whatever with how you see or understand things. You have it wrong.

George and Laura? LOL

You must be a red neck republican to even say this.

Go back and get a real education

Oh yeah, turning down the most powerful leader of the world because of an album. Not a smart move, she would have gotten more attention just meeting with the President than she will ever get for her album.

Rhonda…shut the ***** up! You don’t know what the ***** your saying. President Obama nor Madame MItchelle would ever do such a thing. She feared backlash for the Brits! That bi*tch is getting her nose fixed, her days are numbered, she should be so lucky to have even gotten an invite, so, unfortunate for her, she missed a golden opportunity to gain even more “hype” (and it is hype, because she isn’t the best singer, and she certainly is NO Miriah, back in the day as some compared her to). and exposure, if anything, any publicity she was going to receive is going overshadowed.

# 6

She needs to lose that blond hair STAT!

# 7

Haha, dummy. The chance will not come again.

# 8

Leona is not only lacking in personality, but common sense too. I’m really not a fan of Miss Potato Head.

#2 RHONDA… I’m British, and you’re talking complete nonsense -typical republican. The Queen actually put her arm around Mrs. O first, and she simply followed in kind.

# 9

geez, that is really disrespectful to turn down the most powerful man in the world…”sorry Prez, but I’m busy promoting my album….”
it’s her loss, she misses out on the publicity and respect.

# 8..

that is right!

Don’t know why Rhonda said that. Possibly being a typical republican and also closed minded will result in that type of thinking and wrong information. Republican are also known for making up stories .

Typical liberal, response. Same Same Same, please learn new words!

You don’t have to be a Republican to know that George and Laura Bush were perfectly respectful when dealing with foreign dignitaries. It has nothing to do with politics. How the Obamas in the UK even come up?

I’m certain that this singer will have another chance to visit the White House. The Obamas seem to be all about having celebrities around them. There is nothing wrong with politely declining an invitation because you can’t be there.

ha! does not matter if George and Laura were respectful.

Having him as President made a real mess of the U.S.

Too bad there were too many dumb Americans voting for that monkey!

Good for her. Someone needs to show them they can’t always have whatever they want. And everyone else is right Leona is Brittish and what Michelle did to the Queen was entirely inappropriate and she didn’t even apologize!

@kimberly: Talk about respect. Perhaps YOU should go back to school and learn some.

I don’t think we can even consider the president of the Unitied States the most powerful man in the world any longer, truth be told the PM of China is probably the most powerful man in the world now. Obama is now on par with Putin.

I love her .. it’s unfortunate that she didn’t get to make it .. I cannot wait for her new album!! Leona is amazing, has easily become my favourite singer

Homegirl is just trying to do her work. She’s probably not the first celebrity to turn down such an offer.

You don’t have to be a Republican to know that George and Laura Bush were perfectly respectful when dealing with foreign dignitaries.

Haha, yes that what matter’s over alienating 99 percent of the globe against America.

And why is that bullsh** British paper calling America’s President by his first name? Disrespectful much? Yes Brits, support us and be “respectful” when it fits your agenda. Go f*** yourselves.

Haha, “Rhonda” doesn’t sound like a British name.

I call BULL on this story. The Brits are trying to stay relevant in America but no one is buying their crap. It’s not like Obama’s pre-requisite for dealing with people is that they have to be mixed raced. Brits love to pretend they are turning people down but whatever! Leona was most likely never invited in the first place. She is not a star. She’s a reality tv show winner!!
The mirror is notorious for making up stupid things

I hope you suffer the consequences of one of China’s defective products b****. Communist wh*re.

I can’t stand this arrogant b*tch! How about Americans not buy her album and she can take her ungreatful @ss back to Britain.

Oh, that po po chil, she done turned down Pres YoMammy.
