Celebs At Swearing In

WASHINGTON (AP) - With fame and fortune apparently comes another perk: A front-row seat to history.
Jay-Z was at President Barack Obama's swearing in with wife
Beyonce. Smokey Robinson, Diddy and Denzel Washington made it, too.
Bruce Springsteen was there with his wife, not far from Christopher
Guest and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Boxing great Muhammad Ali had a seat on the platform, as did
actor John Cusack and director Steven Spielberg. Leonardo DiCaprio
whipped out his own camera, while Magic Johnson and actor Val
Kilmer patiently posed for photographs with fans.
Elsewhere, stars stayed warm at private events. Among those
attending were actress Susan Sarandon and actor-director Tim
Robbins, actress Anne Hathaway and Sting.
But the real star power was set to shine at 10 official
inaugural balls and dozens of parties around Washington.
The Neighborhood Ball, broadcast featured performances
by Beyonce, Jay-Z, will.i.am, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Shakira,
Sting, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder and Maroon 5.

    Who gives a rat's behind about which celebrities were there? They have enough money to pay those high taxes once socialism kicks in. I hope they have some money put away in Swiss banks.
