The event, to be held this Friday, will be one the hottest tickets in town
After eight years of consistent star-studded bashes, how will the Obamas celebrate their final send-off party?
With an even bigger bang, according to the Washington Post.
The president and first lady are said to be hosting a goodbye party for close friends and donors this Friday. And the potential guest list is looking like it’s the place to be.
“Old standbys such as singer Usher and actor Samuel L. Jackson will most likely be there, according to another person with knowledge of the invitees. Also currently practicing their sweet moves are media titan Oprah Winfrey, who snagged an exit interview with the first lady last month on her fellow invitee and bestie Gayle King’s network CBS; actor Bradley Cooper, who showed up to the French state dinner sans underpants; Beyoncé, who sang at both of Obama’s inaugurations, and her husband, rapper Jay Z, are both whispered to be performing. We’re also hearing that Stevie Wonder, who has performed at the White House, director J.J. Abrams and director George Lucas make the list,” the Post writes.
