She’ll be accompanied by daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson, who lives at the White House. President Obama will not be on the trip; he is scheduled to depart the U.S. later that week for stops in the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Saudi Arabia.

*President Obama has spoken out regarding recently leaked information about two top-secret government surveillance programs during a 45-minute interview on PBS’ “Charlie Rose.”
The interview was filmed Sunday and aired Monday night, addressing the National Security Agency controversy, Syria, Iran, China and hacking threats.
Obama called the controversial, big brother-like surveillance programs “transparent,” maintaining that the programs were not at risk of being abused by government officials. He said that the public’s concern was due in large part to the fact that “they’re not getting the complete story.”
“What I’ve asked the intelligence committee to do about this is to see how much of this we can declassify without further compromising the program,” he said, “and they are in the process of doing so now.”
Obama said that “this debate has gotten cloudy very quickly,” but assured the public that citizens of the United States could not have their phone calls, text messages or emails targeted without officials obtaining a warrant. “The same way it’s always been,” he said.
“What I want to do is set up and structure a national conversation, not only about these two programs, but also about the general problems of these big data sets,” he added. “Because this is not going to be restricted to government agencies.”
Naomi Campbell in happier times with what some are calling her ex billionaire boyfriend’s new love, Luo Zilin, in their time together on Campbell’s show The Face.
*Remember when we were reporting stories of Naomi Campbell with her billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin and she was going to anger management and jet setting around and he bought her an island and eco-friendly home in the shape of the eye of Horus?
Things were not just great, they were awesome! ”Were” being the key word here.
Now the 50-year-old Vladimir has moved on to his next model conquest with half his age, Luo Zilin.
The stake in Naomi’s heart is that she chose Luo and mentored her on her new America’s Next Top Model-like show called The Face which airs on the Oxygen channel.
According to the Daily Mail, Vladimir is sorry for Naomi, but wishes she would move on with her life rather than try to end Luo’s career.
*Quentin Tarantino‘s “Django Unchained” re-opened in China yesterday to disappointing numbers after it was snatched suddenly from the country’s theaters last month.
Some “minor changes” were made, according to Shanghai’s UME Cineplex. According to Deadline.com, the edited version is three minutes shorter, with nudity scenes omitted.
As previously reported, the film in its original cut was pulled just minutes into its opening screenings on April 11, without an official explanation. The film was expected to take in “a conservative 60 million yuan ($9.8M) in ticket sales” during its April debut, according to China Daily. But Sunday’s re-opening was poor.
“The film’s seat occupancy rate is below 30 percent as of 3:30 this afternoon,” Zhang Wenwen, manager of Wanda International Cineplex, Beijing, told China Daily. In Shanghai, UME International Cineplex in Xintiandi showed a 50 percent rate, but that was still below the box office average compared with other Hollywood movies, including “Iron Man 3” and Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion,” which debuted on Friday.
