Kanye West has been talking a lot about President Barack Obama and he is definitely not done yet. In a sit down with New York's Power 105.1, he openly talked about the President and a lot more:

"When I tell you only seven black billionaires, look at marginalization, and we feel like we happy because me and Rick Ross got it made, or I got a spread outside, a couple of us, or they put a black president. Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can't make these moves or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections.

Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connection as oil people. You know we don't know nobody that got a nice house. You know we don't know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down.

You know they can just put us back or put us in a corporation. You know we ain't in situation. Can you guarantee that your daughter can get a job at this radio station? But if you own this radio station, you could guarantee that. That's what I'm talking about."

Whoa, Sharon Osborne says doing The Osbournes reality show for MTV was the 'biggest mistake' of her life.

She told the BBC's Graham Norton the show took a tremendous toll on her life and her relationship with her family:

"[We]worked to continue a lifestyle we had become accustomed to and we had to travel so my kids spent quite a time away from us and you can never get that time back. It was the biggest mistake I ever did, but would I have wanted to live a lesser life? You make the most of what you have.I don't know how, but Jack and Kelly came out just great," she said.

She also talked about splitting and reuniting with longtime husband Ozzy, and how he has coped with substance abuse issues.

"He stopped because he knows what he was going to lose, not just me but everything. He says we're like bread and butter. We fit together so perfectly."
