Will Conrad Murray Claim that Michael Jackson Killed Himself?

Will Conrad Murray Claim that Michael Jackson Killed Himself?

According to the Associated Press, the defense for Dr. Conrad Murray, the man facing involuntary manslaughter for the death of Michael Jackson, will claim that the King of Pop actually killed himself.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren stated, "I do think it's clear the defense is operating under the theory that the victim, Michael Jackson, killed himself. They don't want to say it, but that's the direction in which they are going."

This all comes in the days leading to January 4th, when Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor will hold a preliminary hearing to decide if there is enough evidence against the doctor to hold him on trial.

The AP also reports that recently, "Murray clashed with the prosecutor over who should test residue from two syringes found in Jackson's bedroom." An issue "unlikely" to be brought up in the hearing.

Murray's defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan (who declined to comment on the possible Jackson suicide defense) argued that the amount of anesthetic Propofol that Murray gave to Jackson wasn't enough to kill him and has suggested that the singer possibly injected himself with more when he was alone.

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.

What do you think of the defense's strategy to claim that Michael Jackson killed himself? Chime in below.

Emma Watson Hits the States for NYE

Opting to ring in 2011 in the States, Emma Watson was spotted arriving at LAX International Airport in Los Angeles, California on Friday (December 31).

The lovely actress was fresh off of an overseas flight from London's Heathrow Airport, as she looked cute in a navy jacket and black trousers while toting a Globetrotter safari handbag through the terminal.

The trip to the U.S. comes after Miss Watson celebrated Christmas with her family in the UK, while also having to tend to Harry Potter re-shoot efforts.

She tweeted of the efforts, "Hi guys, are you all ready for Christmas? Not long to go now... Exams all done and I?m back in the UK in 6 inches of snow. Currently at Leavesden filming reshoots with Dan and Rupert. Feels strange to be back! x"

Ashton Kutcher Lashes Out At Star Magazine?s Cheating Accusations

Ashton Kutcher is not one bit amused by Star Magazine's story that broke today, accusing him of cheating on wife Demi Moore. Ashton took to his Twitter account and it sounds like he's lawyering up.
I think Star magazine calling me a "cheater" qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees.
STAR magazine - you don't get to stand behind "freedom of the press" when you are writing fiction.

Chris Brown Apologizes For Homophobic Raz-B Twitter Rant

'Words cannot begin to express how sorry and frustrated I am over what transpired publicly on Twitter,' singer tells TMZ.
By Gil Kaufman

A day after launching a series of N-bombs and homophobic tweets in the direction of former B2K singer Raz-B, Chris Brown was feeling contrite Thursday (December 30). The singer, who recently boasted about his completion of a court-ordered, yearlong domestic-violence course as part of his sentencing for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, told gossip site TMZ that he regretted making crude sexual comments that were considered homophobic.

"Yesterday was an unfortunate lack in judgment sparked by public Twitter attacks from Raz-B, who was bent on getting attention," Brown said of the virtual feud. "Words cannot begin to express how sorry and frustrated I am over what transpired publicly on Twitter. I have learned over the past few years to not condone or represent acts of violence against anyone."

On Wednesday, the "Deuces" singer got charged up when Raz-B tweeted a comment critical of Brown in the midst of a flurry of tweets in praise of Rihanna. "I'm just sittin here thinking how can n---as like [Eric Benet] & [Chris Brown] disrespect women as intelligent as Halle Berry, Rihanna," Raz wrote.

Brown quickly shot back, tweeting, "N---a you want attention! Grow up n---a!!! Di-- in da booty ass lil boy."

The harsh comments were an apparent allusion to allegations Raz-B made (and later retracted) that B2K manager Brian Stokes had molested him. Several other homophobia-tinged responses followed, but, unlike in the past when Brown went into Internet silence after making heated statements, he vowed that this time, he would not delete his Twitter account.

"I was minding my damn business and Peter pan decides to pop off!!!" Brown wrote. "I'm not mad though!!! I'm just not silent nor am i one of these scary R&B cats!!" In light of the harsh statements, Brown followed up by writing, "I'm not homophobic! He's just disrespectful!!!"

Since the Rihanna assault, Brown has made a series of outrageous or confounding statements that he quickly followed with apologies or retractions. He followed that pattern on Thursday, when he told TMZ, "Molestation and victims of such acts are not to be taken lightly; and for my comments I apologize -- from the bottom of my heart." An unnamed source connected to Brown pointed out that Raz's allegations against Stokes were suspect, adding that regardless of their veracity, Brown's comments were not acceptable.

"I love all of my fans, gay and straight," Brown went on to say. "I have friends from all walks of life and I am committed, with God's help, to continue becoming a better person."

Though Brown was extending an olive branch, TMZ also noted that Raz's brother, the singer known as Ricky Romance, posted a video threatening that if he saw Brown in Los Angeles, he would "put my mother----ing pistol in your mouth." A spokesperson for Raz noted that Ricky's comments do not represent Raz's feelings but are the result of a protective instinct among siblings. "Raz-B has already spoken to his brother and told him to chill out," the spokesperson said.

Kanye And Gaga?! Readers React To Our Man And Woman Of The Year

Kanye West vs. Eminem, Lady Gaga vs. Britney Spears: Our readers duke it out over whether our picks for 2010's top man and woman were worthy.
By James Montgomery

Last week, when MTV News revealed our picks for Man of the Year (Kanye West) and Woman of the Year (Lady Gaga), we expected that there would be some folks out there who wouldn't agree with our choices ... mostly, Eminem fans — because, as we've learned time and time again, they don't agree with anything.

But there's no way we could have predicted just how many people were genuinely outraged with our list ... readers flooded our site with comments, calling us every name in the book, accusing us of vast multinational conspiracies, and doing everything short of declaring war on our headquarters (please don't attack on a Wednesday, that's Taco Day in the cafeteria). We're only slightly exaggerating.

(They're more than just pretty faces, but you can still check out photos of our Men and Women of 2010!)

By far, the biggest point of contention centered on our Man of the Year list ... and, more specifically, why we gave the award to West instead of Eminem. Fans of both men lit up the comments with passionate arguments, with each side working overtime to state their case. It got pretty nasty, which sort of made it even better.

Over on the Woman of the Year list, well, most people seemed to agree that Gaga deserved the honor, though, of course, there were still some out there who believed that Britney Spears was robbed — even though she didn't release a note of music this year. Her fans are just that loyal.

To be honest, we were sort of blown away by just how many of you cared, so we've decided to collect some of the best responses here. But don't think the debate has to end right now ... if you still feel like your voice hasn't been heard, sound off in the comments below. And now, without further ado, let's get acrimonious.

"Eminem [had] two #1 singles both with sales over 3 million! [He was] iTunes' Artist of the Year, Billboard's Best Male and Best Album ... best-selling single in the UK, VMA Best Male and Best Hip Hop, EMA Best Hip Hop artist, MTV's #1 Hottest MC of 2010 ... opened at VMA and BET awards, Recovery already sold 3 million and still counting copies in less than 6 months (I pray Kanye makes it up to 1 million by God's grace), 10 Grammy nominations ... Eminem had a bigger year and MTV knows that!" — Kennethngbor

"Kanye had a bigger year? Yeah he did. 10/10 from Pitchfork? Yeah. 'Runaway' movie? Yeah. G.O.O.D. Fridays (new song every week)? Yeah. Most critically acclaimed album this year? Yeah. Sold over 430,000 copies without a NUMBER ONE single and being the MOST HATED man in America? yeahh. Need I continue? Em's album wasn't all that. Hell, Teflon Don was better than Recovery. ... 'Ye had a better album, [and] a better year." — Alex

"I think [Kanye] deserved to win. Of course Em sold more records, Hello? America's white-boy rapper? Duh! I mean, he's cool, don't get me wrong ... Em puts out a good CD when he tries, but Kanye killed it ... So to hell with what people say, I'm good with 'Ye winning man of the year." — Hsoj

"I feel that MTV and Kanye have a plot together to make each other bigger. They hyped the you-know-what out of him before he even dropped his latest album. Suddenly he has been back for a couple of months after he took some time off to seek help and he becomes Man of the Year? Come on. Everytime he does something outlandish it's on MTV, so I'm starting to wonder if he and the network are working together to help each other gain publicity. Shady business if you ask me." — JayJay

"MTV, accept the many mistakes you made this year in many of your lists and make a better one next year and stop underrating people! #1 for Kanye is not deserved, he does not deserve to be in the top 5! Usher is supposed to be on this list, Bieber and Eminem are supposed to be higher!" — Emperor

"Kanye deserved this, denying it makes you look stupid because over this entire year, he's the one that brought music (especially hip hop) forward. I LOVE EMINEM, I couldn't be more serious about that, but at the end of the day, Kanye brought music forward as opposed to Em getting back to the level of quality we are used to getting from him. Em's still the sh--, but this year, Kanye made a better product." — Ryan

"Kanye West just put out one of the best acclaimed hip-hop albums of the last 7 years ... he created a masterpiece in the movie 'Runaway' and stretched the boundaries with the moving painting piece for 'Power'. Kanye West did more this year to move [forward] the culture, especially the hip-hop culture than Em did by far. If you make the best album you should be the man that year, simple as that." — ThisGuyCalledJeff

"I'm happy for Kanye, and people should be happy for him too for giving out all that free music and putting out a classic album instead of hating! And I'm pretty sure Eminem is not thinking about this list, because he's making bread off that 3 mill sold, so let's let Kanye shine for a moment please!" — TommyBoy502ky

"I'm tired of MTV giving Gaga too much praise! I can't wait for Britney Spears to release her new album in March! Gaga did not revive pop music. She is good but she is not better than the pop stars who came before her like Britney, Christina, and Madonna ... When Britney came out, she revived pop music! When Gaga came out, she didn't revive nothing. Now Britney will be back with a new album and she will be on top." — IfUSeekPeanut:)

"Okay, let me explain to you why Britney is not better than anybody, she is not an icon, she won't be a legend, she used her physical looks to call people's attention, she is auto-tuned, and she doesn't sing live! Gaga is talented and better than Britney, in so many levels ... she writes her own music, and plays the piano, the problem is that Britney has a longer career, but Gaga will have it too in 10 years; yes she is crazy, and yes she is a freak, but that's what makes her special and unique, Britney these days is just another pop star; the fact that she's been relevant for a decade doesn't mean she is a legend, and Lady Gaga is definitely the icon of this generation." — EMMNL

"I seriously don't care what anyone could possibly say, I love Lady Gaga with all my heart and nothing anyone says will ever change that. I've honestly heard it all, and it only makes my love for her stronger. Can't wait for Born This Way. I'll be the first one to buy it in Canada." — Christian

"There was no other choice [for Woman of the Year]. [Gaga's] carried pop music the past two years. Without her Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj would not exist. She's single-handedly brought dance music from the basement to the Penthouse." — frankru2000

Michael Jackson Fans Celebrate Michael's Release With DJ Cassidy

'It was always my dream to DJ for Michael Jackson,' Cassidy says at album-release party Monday night.
By Steven Roberts

NEW YORK — Many a Michael Jackson fan lined up outside of the Roseland Ballroom on Monday night to celebrate the release of the King of Pop's posthumous Michael album. Dozens of dancers and fans filled the ballroom's floor, decked out in costumes inspired by MJ's iconic looks from throughout his esteem career. One of those fans also happened to be the evening's master of ceremonies, DJ Cassidy.

"I'm here to make the fans dance," he told MTV News. "I think that's why Michael essentially made the music. He wanted to make people dance. He wanted to make people feel the emotion he felt, and I'm here to do just that. I'm here to help the fans in the celebration of the king."

Dressed in a leather suit with a pink shirt and socks, a red bowtie and shell-top Adidas, Cassidy said that he's been a fan of Jackson for as long as he can remember. The late singer has been his inspiration in anything artistic in his life, from music to fashion.

"So much of my fashion comes from Michael," Cassidy explained. "So much of how I play music comes from how he formed his songs, how he created his sound that really inspired the way that I DJ. And really, it inspired me to want to be a DJ, to want to make people dance.

"So, when I became a DJ at the age of 10, it was always my dream to DJ for Michael Jackson," he added. "Tonight's just a small way for me to really celebrate his music."

The party's guests also included producers Teddy Riley, Eddie Cascio and Neff U, who each had a hand in producing Michael's tracks. But before he began to spin for the night, Cassidy was thinking back to the classics, particularly his favorite party song, 1979's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough."

"You can be anywhere in the world, any city, any small town, any type of crowd, black, white, old, young, poor, rich, at any type of venue," he said. "They could be wanting to hear house music, hip-hop music, anything in between, but 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough' will turn that party out."

Justin Bieber Stuffs A Bus For Sick Kids In Atlanta

'I have such a big platform, it would be silly if I didn't do something positive with it,' teen megastar says.

ATLANTAJustin Bieber is using the power of Bieber Fever to cheer up sick kids this Christmas.

The teen sensation wrapped up his current tour on Thursday night (December 23) in his beloved adopted city of Atlanta, and instead of going out with a bang, he decided to go out with a bus — a bus full of toys for kids at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, that is.

Bieber teamed up with local radio station Q100 for "Stuff Bieber's Bus," a campaign that urged concertgoers to drop off toys and games in a tricked-out bus stationed outside the city's Philips Arena. The gifts will then be handed out to ailing children who have to spend Christmas morning resting up in the hospital instead of barreling down the stairs to a tree harboring stacks of presents.

The bus, which was only parked in front of the stadium for one day, was one-third full by 3:30 p.m., with a boatload of gifts expected to pour in by the 9 p.m. deadline. Q100 DJ and Bieber buddy Bert Weiss, who helped spearhead the project, said the 16-year-old's storied Web clout instantly pumped up awareness about the initiative.

"I've been talking about it on the air for three or four weeks and I've got a trickle of a tweet and an email. Justin tweeted about it yesterday and all of a sudden there were a surge of targets, I got tweets and emails. So the bus is filling up really, really quickly," Weiss told reporters at a press conference in the arena. Since Georgia's Own Credit Union plans to match every donation, Weiss emphasized that "every single child at a children's hospital will have a present now because of Justin Bieber."

Bieber was amped to lend his Internet influence to the cause, as he has been chopping it up with the radio personality ever since the Canadian superstar first began to rack up hits online with his smash covers of R&B and pop jams.

"I got contacted by their radio station and Bert himself, and he asked us if we wanted to be involved ... and it was just something I thought would be really cool," Bieber told MTV News.

As for switching up the typical toy drive by packing a bus full of gifts, Bieber explained that the type of charity you choose isn't as important as actually giving back. "I think that it doesn't really matter what you do," he said. "As long as you're helping other people, why not do it?"

In addition to soliciting donations from Atlanta-area Beliebers, the pop megastar also dropped in on some sick children, and recounted meeting a superfan who didn't let her ailment hold her back from showing she's got tons of love for the "Baby" singer.

"One girl even had a prosthetic leg and it had my face on it. ... It was so cool to meet her," Bieber smiled. "It was amazing."

The star, who largely batted away reporters' questions that weren't related to the bus-stuffing campaign, gave a simple reason for continuing to give back: "I have such a big platform, it would be silly if I didn't do something positive with it."

'Little Fockers' Cast On What They Missed Most Since Last Movie

'For me, it's always exciting to come to work with Mr. DeNiro,' Ben Stiller says of his co-star.
By Kara Warner, with reporting by Eric Ditzian

It's hard to believe that it's been six years since audiences were treated to a Fockers film. "Meet the Fockers," the sequel to "Meet the Parents," was released in 2004. Even more difficult to believe is that it's been a full decade since the original opened in 2000. With the arrival of the third installment in the franchise, "Little Fockers," opening Wednesday (December 22), we wanted to know what the castmembers missed most about each other during their long six years away from the Focker and Byrnes families.

"Cuddling," Dustin Hoffman, who plays Ben Stiller's father Bernie Focker, joked. "We hadn't cuddled for six years."

"Cuddling, that was a good one," Owen Wilson agreed. "There's something about this guy, I can't keep my eyes off him ... my hands off him. You just want to hug him."

"Owen and I work very similarly together," Hoffman explained of their affection for one another. "And we yearn for the time when we can have an entire film together."

"That would be nice," Wilson said. But when asked about the long hiatus between films, Hoffman seemed to enjoy the break.

"I kind of like the blessed relief of not having to do another 'Fockers' for six years," he said with a chuckle.

"Yeah, I think it is nice to let it percolate," Wilson added.

The actresses who play onscreen mother and daughter noted that the passage of time has been met with many milestones, both in the film and in real life.

"Now we have children," Blythe Danner said. Gesturing to co-star Teri Polo, Danner continued, "She didn't have children in real life when we started 10 years ago. I didn't have grandchildren 10 years ago in real life. So we're mature women now. We've all matured, in positive and negative ways."

"Speak for yourself!" Polo joked about the "mature women" comment. "There's a dance, a familiarity, a dance, a rhythm, a song that you just fall back into," she said of coming back to work with her "Focker" castmates. "When you walk onto the set for the first time after five years and see Robert DeNiro, it's just awesome. Believe it or not, he's a warm man," Polo added. "He's a man of few words but very warm." Speaking of DeNiro, Stiller insisted his legendary co-star was happy for time away from him.

"He didn't miss me," Stiller said. "For me, it's always exciting to come to work with Mr. DeNiro. I feel like after 10 years I finally feel OK calling you 'Bob.' I finally feel like I'm not forcing that," he said. "It's always great to have a chance to work together, the whole cast, it's always fun to see everybody."

Check out everything we've got on "Little Fockers."

Demi Lovato still has her 2011 touring plan, but one gig the teen sensation doesn't have on her agenda is a starring role in "The Avengers." Contrary to reports, the 18-year-old singer/actress will not be featured in the film about a team of Marvel superheroes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

THR reports that sources inside Lovato's and Marvel's camps are "denying across the board" that the "Camp Rock" star is involved in any way in the all-star comic book adaptation, which is tentatively due in 2012. Part of the difficulty in hiring the actress is that the Joss Whedon-directed film will begin shooting in spring 2011 and the starlet is still undergoing her medical treatment for "emotional and physical issues."

Despite the circulating Lovato rumor, Marvel may still be on the lookout for another female actress to join the male-heavy cast. As of now, "The Avengers" superhero lineup includes Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Samuel Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

Things have been looking up for the "Sonny With a Chance" star. Not only did the songstress come to an agreement with dancer Alex Welch, whom she allegedly punched before leaving her joint tour with the Jonas Brothers, but the Disney star was also able to spend some time with her family on Christmas Day. She was spotted with her family on the holiday getting food near her treatment facility in Woodridge, Illinois.

Kelly Osbourne Isn't First Celeb To Publicly Lash Out At An Ex

Our relationship expert offers advice after reality star's Twitter tirade against Luke Worrall and David Arquette's candid sex talk about Courteney Cox.

After Kelly Osbourne's recent Twitter tirade against ex-fiancé Luke Worrall, which included several potentially slanderous and profanity-laced statements, it seemed wise that the reality star said she'd be signing off Twitter for a while, hopefully in order to recover from her heartbreak and stop airing any more dirty laundry in such a public setting.

Osbourne's incident reminded us of David Arquette calling into Howard Stern and discussing his and ex Courteney Cox's sex life on the radio.

This got us to thinking: How do you bounce back from such emotional, and often regrettable, actions? According to relationship expert Amy Laurent, the first thing to do: Stop talking.

"The worst thing you can do is lash out in public," Laurent told MTV News. "The way [Osbourne] comes off is not good. I don't know the ins and outs of their relationship, but the best thing she can do is to stop talking. Don't say a word more."

Laurent added that Osbourne's reactions were a natural part of the grieving process, but that she should make some kind of comment or apology, acknowledging the fact that she was hurt, upset and just plain heartbroken.

"When you get your heart broken, [the first cycle of grief] is the sadness, the depression, crying, and then the next cycle is to get angry," Laurent explained. "That's the natural progression."

Laurent added, with regard to Arquette's situation, he should have gone straight to Cox to apologize. "If you're still talking to them, go to that person you broke up with and apologize and see if you can join forces," she said. " 'I'm sorry I was stupid.' Try and have that other person support you to clean it up."

For anyone suffering from a recent breakup, not just celebrities, Laurent recommended staying away from sites like Facebook and Twitter.

"Don't Facebook stalk," she said. "I would recommend to totally refrain from any of that stuff, even making little comments in reference. ... And don't do anything impulsively, she added. It's hard to do when you're emotional, when you have a broken heart, but you have to slow down and not do anything impulsive."

For celebs, however, the bar for expected good behavior after breaking up with another famous face is much higher. Laurent said there's an aspect of censorship to which celebs unfortunately have to adhere.

"Nobody ever wants to think that they have to censor themselves, but to a certain extent, [celebrities] can't 100 percent be themselves," she said. "Someone like David Arquette, he is more easily forgivable, people want to like him. He's a perfect example of how people make mistakes and you can kind of fix those mistakes if you're willing to admit it."

Laurent said Osbourne's rant, unfortunately, went way too far.

"You have to show a level of restraint, even if that person cheated on you, treated you like absolute dirt. You still can't lash out, because you're not going to get that sympathy from the public if you do that," she said. "But I think she's sensitive and young. I feel bad for her. I hope people keep that in mind when they judge her, but I hope she really learns from this."

Was Osbourne's rant justified? How can she recover? Tell us in the comments!

Jennifer vs. Cate: Who Wore Lanvin Best?

Filed under: ,

She may not have taken the top prize on 'American Idol', but Jennifer Hudson has won us over with her fashionable transformation. After becoming a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, the 'Dreamgirls' star dropped five dress sizes and has been stepping out with a mature new look, like this luxe Lanvin wrap dress. She kept warm in opaque black tights, added sexy round toe pumps and made her lips pop with a raisin colored lipstick. She rounded out the look with a silver bangle and sparkly ring.

Academy Award winning actress Cate Blanchett also fell for the flattering dress, which she wore while on the red carpet in September. Always refined, Cate opted for a chic look with simple black heels, a chunky gold bracelet and soft, pulled back hair. Both actresses looked ravishing in red, but who wore Lanvin best? Let us know BV fashionistas!

Ryan Gosling Gets Sick of Himself, but We Sure Don't

Ryan Gosling is your mistletoe dream guy, and the charming actor got serious for an interview with the LA Times. He talked about the emotional inspiration for Blue Valentine and why he hasn't been out promoting his other new release, All Good Things. Ryan and Michelle Williams did make the rounds for their release, showing off their amazing chemistry at every stop. Perhaps they'll even walk the Golden Globes red carpet together next month. Blue Valentine is out in NY and LA tomorrow and elsewhere over the next few weeks. Here are highlights:

  • On acting and interviews: "I don't really like doing interviews because I don't have any answers about why I act. It's like a compulsion. It's people who eat and eat and eat and they don't know why and they keep getting fatter but they can't stop. It's like that . . . And then you find yourself on a set throwing yourself off a bridge, and you're asking yourself, 'Why am I doing this?' And I don't know."
  • On promoting movies: "I try not to make too many movies. I get sick of myself, so I can imagine how everyone else feels. And for the two to come out at the same time, it makes me feel sick."
  • On making independent movies: "When I make these movies, I don't think, 'I want to make a little indie movie and I want to stay in the indie world because I think it's cool. I make these movies and think, 'This is the one. This one is going to be "The Blair Witch Project."' I'm sure of it while we're making it. And then it comes out and it does no business. I just have this total fantasy that you can make a movie like 'Blue Valentine' and that it can be as big as 'Avatar.' That's my dream. I don't have kids or something else more important in my life right now so I keep hammering away at it. I haven't done it yet. But I think I'm getting closer."

To read what Ryan has to say about All Good Things and the relationships he used as Blue Valentine inspiration, just read more.

  • On All Good Things: "I'm proud of what Kirsten does in the movie. It was a hard film to make because it was such a dark experience. Just the story itself, trying to understand the things that your gut tells you you don't want to feel for this person. It's an interesting experience to have, but you're happy when it's over."
  • On Blue Valentine: "I feel like 'Blue Valentine' is the biggest dog on my porch because it's the most universal experience: What happens when love goes away. It's the ripple effect of that lost love, the shadow it casts."
  • On the relationships he used as inspiration for BV: "There's something I often see in people who've been married - a deep undercurrent of resentment toward the other person because they need them. You could tell these were people who didn't know how to address the bigger problems in their relationship. People are fighting about these things that are not really what they're fighting about."

Michelle Obama's Look for Less

Filed under: ,

First Lady Michelle Obama is one classy lady who knows how to dress the part. Whether its speaking to students at a school or attending a charity event, Michelle always turns to the perfectly put together look that's both sophisticated and fun. Take for example, last Friday, when the First Lady participated in a ceremony that honored the nation's museums and libraries. Michelle Obama opted for a modern take on a classic corporate outfit, matching a basic black pencil skirt with a black and white polka dot bow blouse and a strand of pearls.

Michelle Obama's modern look is perfect for the office, but this week, as you go from work to play at your company holiday event, it's easy to take her look and step it up a notch. Simply add a pair of sassy pumps, a pretty pair of earrings and a fun red clutch for a punch of color and you're ready to go. Get Michelle Obama's look for less with these options:

1.) Dillards Printed Bow Blouse ($21.60, 2.) Lasonia Platform Pump ($35.95, 3.) Kimchi Blue Bow Clutch ($18, 4.) Banana Republic Pearl Chain Necklace ($49.50,
5.) Crystal Bow Earrings ($38.00, 6.) Charter Club Pencil Skirt ($39.98,
