Barack Obama Picks This Star to Play Him in Potential Biopic

Barack Obama has given Drake his stamp of approval!

During a new interview, the 59-year-old former President said he wouldn’t mind the 34-year-old “God’s Plan” singer playing him in a potential biopic one day.

“I will say this, Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants,” Obama shared on Complex’s 360 With Speedy Morman. “I mean, that is a talented, talented brother. So, if the time comes and he’s ready…”

Obama added, “Drake has, more importantly I think, my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”

If you didn’t know, back in 2010 Drake voiced his interest in wanting to play Obama.

“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” Drake told Paper at the time. “I watch all the addresses. Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions. Slowly but surely, I’m not in the study mode because nobody’s called me about anything, but I just pay attention so when the day comes I’m not scrambling to learn how to speak like him.”

Drake wouldn’t be the first star to portray Obama on screen. Kingsley Ben-Adir played Obama on the Showtime series The Comey Rule and Parker Sawyers played him in the movie Southside with You.

Camila Cabello Reveals What She's Learned About Love with Shawn Mendes

Camila Cabello Reveals What She's Learned About Love with Shawn Mendes

Camila Cabello is opening up about her relationship with Shawn Mendes and what she has learned about love while dating him.

The young music stars first met in 2014, but they didn’t officially start dating in July 2019.

“I’ve learned a lot about love with this guy. It’s not just the happy blissful moments you see in pictures and videos- When you’re in a relationship with someone, it feels like they are this mirror reflecting yourself back to you,” Camila wrote in a post on Instagram. “I constantly have to confront my fears, my anxieties, my insecurities, my patterns of thinking, my beliefs about life and about myself.”

“It’s not as simple as it looks in pictures sometimes. sometimes, it’s messy and uncomfortable and ugly lol. But there’s nothing like the pull, the FORCE that is love, to be the light in the darkness- to be the gravitational pull that gives you the relentless strength to be braver, wiser, and better than you were yesterday,” Camila continued. “It’s so instinctive for us to love, even if our minds try to protect us from it sometimes, but our nature as humans is to love. And to be in love means to choose that person over and over again, to go through the messy stuff with. And that’s way more beautiful and raw and real than perfection.”

Camila concluded, “I’m all for being vulnerable on social media because I think only the neatness and perfection of life is shown on here; and that can make us all feel extra lonely and weird! So raise your glass to the messiness and weirdness of being human and the miracle. And the easiness. And the instinct. And the relentless force that is love.”

Just last week, Shawn opened up about “truly being in love” with Camila.

Pictured inside: Shawn stepping out for a stroll around the neighborhood on Saturday (November 28) in Miami, Fla.

Peacock Apologizes to Selena Gomez for Kidney Transplant Joke in 'Saved By the Bell' Reboot

Peacock Apologizes to Selena Gomez for Kidney Transplant Joke in 'Saved By the Bell' Reboot

The streaming service Peacock has released an apology after Selena Gomez‘s fans expressed outraged over a joke about her kidney transplant surgery in the new Saved By the Bell reboot series.

There are two separate scenes in episode six where the identity of Selena‘s kidney donor is speculated.

In one scene, two girls argue over whether the kidney came from Selena‘s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s mom or her former best friend Demi Lovato. In another scene, graffiti on a wall appears to say, “Does Selena Gomez even have a kidney?”

A joint statement from Peacock, NBCUniversal, and the executive producers of Saved By the Ball has been released.

“We apologize. It was never our intention to make light of Selena’s health. We have been in touch with her team and will be making a donation to her charity, The Selena Gomez Fund for Lupus Research at USC,” the statement reads (via Variety).
