Michelle Obama's Calendar... Bruno Takes Hollywood... Cortazar Is In...

First Lady Michelle Obama will celebrate the 10th annual National Design Awards at the White House.

BRUNO TAKES L.A.: Thursday night’s “Bruno” premiere took place despite the passing of Michael Jackson a few hours before, but Universal Studios banned reporters from asking questions about Jackson on the red carpet, and also made a last-minute decision to cut a reference to The King of Pop from the movie. In it, Bruno tries to obtain Jackson’s phone number by inviting his sister LaToya Jackson to be a guest on his talk show. The red carpet, covered in B logos mimicking Chanel’s interlocking C’s, also temporarily covered Jackson’s star on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame. “Bruno” star Sacha Baron Cohen, who arrived in a military tank brandishing a gold-plated Bazooka with “Chanel” printed on it, did the press line in character, remarking, “You cannot poke fun at the fashion world. It is a stereotype that we are only concerned about appearance and drugs and that is not true. We are also concerned about parties.”
