Jennifer Lopez headed to the White House

(CNN) - Celebrity guests will visit the White House Sunday to watch the Super Bowl.

"American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez and her Grammy award winning husband, singer Marc Anthony, will be at the White House with the first family for the football event, CNN confirmed with her publicist.

In an interview on Extra Wednesday Lopez said she "can't believe it."

"I don't know, maybe that's why I don't want to talk about it. I don't even feel like it's real," Lopez said.

    What a surprise. The celebrity culture hob nobs with the celebrity president. Why shouldn't the ordinary "Joe" that just goes to work everyday and tries to pay the bills get invited to a party at the White House. Politics, entertainments, sports – you name touch with the common man.......don't think so. Just illustrates how Washington continues to be about the rich and powerful.

    It is like going to the zoo. Why would she do that if she can watch the same thing from her own TV.

    What is President Obama thinking by inviting a Fox employee over to watch the super bowl? Was Glenn Beck and his chainsaw/rabbit act not available? Would Glenn have to check his guns at the gate? I think this is the basis for a new Fox conspiracy theory.

    Can anyone imagine Ronald Regan or GW Bush having a super star in the WH to watch a super bowl game during a crisis as we now have? But of course w/Obambi this is fine.....after all he is "above" the office of president.
    Or better yet; what would the liberal media be saying if it was GW Bush or R R ????
    This president is quickly selling this nation down the river and opening our doors to become a "nest of terriosts" just waiting for an opportunity to gather a large crowd of citizens so they can work thier jhiad!

    Wow – Obama is just like Regan having all the Hollywood types over for a “kickin’ back” social party.
    Luckily for us the similarities end there.

    That anchorwoman this morning in the news shows her ignorance when she referred this event as "little salsa in the white house" twice, as if Spanish people are good only for that in nothing else. Her ignorance disregard all the contributions Spanish people has made to the nation across the board and not only "salsa,salsa". Ms. stop refering us with "salsa" is not only getting tiresome but stupid and ignorant. It seems to me that she needs a course in History!
