Is Mexico Barbie stylish or stereotypical?

There's a new collection of dolls hitting store shelves, they're called the Barbie Dolls of the World. There is one from Mexico that has some people upset.

According to Mattel – the doll comes in their words "dressed for a fabulous fiesta in her vibrant pink dress with ruffles, lace, and brightly colored ribbon accents." She also comes with a Chihuahua - that has some calling out the company for being racially insensitive.

Did Jay-Z throw Obama under bus over Cuba trip?

Rapper Jay Z took to the mic today - releasing a rap titled "Open Letter" in which he responded to critics who questioned the legality of his trip to Cuba this week.

In the song, Jay Z also alludes to having a conversation about the trip with the president:

"Boy from the 'hood, I got White House clearance. Obama said chill you gonna get me impeached. You don't need this – s***t- anyway. Chill with me on the beach."

Well after that song was released, the White House was quick to distance itself from Jay Z's trip.

"I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the white house has nothing to do with it." White House Press Secretary Jay Carney added, "I am absolutely saying the president on down had nothing to do with anybody's personal - anybody's travel to Cuba. That is something that Treasury handles."
