This morning, in an interview with The Today Show’s, Savannah Guthrie, President Obama was asked about the whole “The Carter’s Go To Cuba” issue from a few weeks ago when Jay-Z and Beyonce took a trip to Cuba. Given everything the President is dealing with, this question clearly was not his cup of tea to answer!

TMZ is reporting that Katherine Jackson’s lawyers have been trying to find out what Debbie Rowe might say under oath about the paternity of Paris and Prince Jackson – the two kids she bore while married to Michael Jackson.
The website quotes sources close to Katherine as saying her lawyers have been making a number of inquiries as the family’s wrongful death trial against AEG Live draws near.
