President Barack Obama has called on a host of A-List performers for his inaugural festivities, including Beyonce, Katy Perry, Fun., Far East Movement, Usher, Kelly Clarkson, and the cast of “Glee.” But what if some of our fave celebs could be actual members of Obama’s cabinet? Here’s who we’d nominate.
+ Far East Movement as Secretaries of Transportation
Current Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood is pretty much in control of all air and ground transportation in the nation. Basically, he makes sure we get around…but not necessarily quickly considering my normal 20-minute drive home from work took me almost two hours on Monday! That being said, I’d like to nominate “Like A G6” performers Far East Movement as Secretaries of Transportation. ‘Cause who doesn’t wanna kick back in luxury G6 plane instead of sitting in traffic all day?
+ Usher as Secretary of the Interior
Contrary to popular belief, the Secretary of the Interior is not in charge of painting walls and hanging drapes in the 132-room White House. He or she is actually in charge of the Department of the Interior, which manages the conservation of U.S. federal land and natural resources. But if the Secretary of the Interior weeeere in charge of interior design, we think Usher would be pretty good at it considering he once lived in an over 12,000 square foot home!
+ Kelly Clarkson as Secretary of Health and Human Services
Although our current Secretary of Health and Human Services isn’t leaving any time soon, Kelly Clarkson’s work with the March of Dimes might at least semi-qualify her for the position. The March of Dimes is an organization devoted to the good health of mothers and newborns, and Kelly has long been a spokesperson for them and a participant in their annual walks.
+ Beyonce as Secretary of State
It’s no secret that President Obama is a Beyonce fan. At a campaign fundraiser hosted by the R&B diva, he called her the perfect role model to his daughters Sasha and Malia. Beyonce would make a bootilicious fine replacement to current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and if people miss Hillz…well…Beyonce can just get a matching blonde lacefront wig and no one will know the diff.
