Barack Obama and Justin Bieber Both in Town to Make Your Commute Miserable
Today in your why is it taking me so freaking long to get where I want to go news: Two extremely famous world powers are in New York City today, on the very same day. This is unprecedented! They are: President Obama and Justin Bieber. Obama, of course, is in town for fundraisers in Midtown and the Upper East Side, including a $1,250-a-ticket dinner hosted by Neil Patrick Harris at the Democratic National Committee's Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Gala. After that he'll go to a $35,800-a-ticket dinner at Daniel on the Upper East Side, and then he'll attend a fundraising performance of Sister Act. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber is on The View this morning and later will visit Macy's to promote his new perfume, "Bieber Smell" (Correction: "Someday"). That is going to be crazy, obviously. Plan your travel accordingly, or just hide under your bed all day. [NBC NY]
