Les réactions "musicales" à l'élection de Obama (Politique)

chilli-skeuds.jpgObama élu !!!  Voici quelques réactions à chaud de personnalités de la musique mais également de sportifs, de cinéaste ... de tout le monde ou presque. Vous savez ce qu'en pense Skeuds ...

Kanye West: paid homage to his late mother, Donda West by posting a photo of the President-elect on his blog with the message: “HI MOM, OBAMA WON!” ahhhhhhhhhhh!

TLC’s Chili (en photo): “This is amazing. …Never thought I’d live to see this.”

Russell Simmons: “The vision of the hip-hop generation and its young people is in full and glorious effect tonight,” The Mogul told E!  “While many older Americans, who marched and struggled so hard so Senator Obama could run for president of the United States never dared to believe in his candidacy’s real potential, young people, particularly the hip-hop community, had faith and their imagination became our reality.”

Madonna: In this YouTube video from her performance in Southern California Tuesday, The Material Girl claps her hands and declares, “This is a historical evening! … We are lucky to be sharing it with each other!” George Clooney issued a statement saying: “I congratulate President-elect Obama on his historic victory, and now it’s time to begin unifying the country so we can take on the extraordinary challenges that this generation faces.”

Michael Moore: “Who among us is not at a loss for words?” The Political Documentary filmmaker said on his website. “Tears pour out. Tears of joy. Tears of relief. A stunning, whopping landslide of hope in a time of deep despair.”

Donovan McNabb: “It reminded me of, obviously, when Martin Luther King spoke and the messages that he spoke about,” The first-time voter and Chicago native said Wednesday. “As a man, if you teared up, it was acceptable because it was that deep. For the first time, I had the opportunity to vote and I can say that I was a part of it.”

Dolphins linebacker, Joey Porter: Was among several NFL players wearing Obama shirts to practice

NBA commissioner David Stern: “Inspiring and transformational. Hooray for the USA.” Yahh! That’s genuine.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers: “I thought it was really interesting right after the game, the guys were celebrating Obama’s victory more than we just beat the Rockets on the road. I thought that was really cool. Like I told them three or four days ago.  I don’t care who you vote for. That’s none of my business. I just want you to vote. I just want you to be involved.’”

Venus Williams: “America is a wonderful place. I love my country, and I love living there. I love my passport,” she said during a tournament in Doha, Qatar. “But also it’s a country that almost since its beginning, it was supposed to be a place where people were escaping intolerance. It became a country that was really intolerant of different minorities and skin colors.”

“My dad grew up in Louisiana, a place where he was called ‘boy’ and shown no respect. Where he couldn’t say anything. His mother was a poor sharecropper.  So I think it’s amazing that America has the opportunity to have someone who is a minority of mixed race or whatever you want to call it.”

LeBron James: Openly one of the more vocal and politically open athletes arrived at Wednesday night’s game wearing a T-shirt with Obama’s face. James had contributed $20,000 tothe campaign, hosted an early-voter registration rally and a free concert at Quicken Loans Arena with Jay-Z.

“They say that’s a ritual for him, like me coming in early and getting a massage before the game,” James said during an appearence on David Letterman. “It got him prepared. The speech was, wow. If it takes basketball for him to say things like that, then let him do it.”

Grant Hill: “It would have been nice to have been at home with the family, taking it all in, but we were playing and trying to get updates while we were playing, during timeouts.”  The Suns were on the team bus when they found out Obama had won. “I will always remember playing against Jersey on Nov. 4, 2008.”.

“We talk about the black vote, but white America is the one that makes the difference, and they voted for an African-American. You can have all the black votes you want, but if you don’t have the white vote, you ain’t going to win. It just shows a lot.”

Pour faire court, ils sont tous très contents de cette élection et pense que le PSG va battre Lille ce week-end (non, là dessus ils n'en pensent rien et on déconne un peu).

FAITES TOURNER !!!!!!!!!! MERCI !!!!!!
