Maya Angelou passed away Wednesday at the age of 86. Angelou had an incredibly varied life and career – aside from her autobiographical writing and poetry, she worked as a journalist in Egypt and Ghana, and at one point was a cast member in a touring production of the opera Porgy and Bess.
In 1993, already well known as a poet and autobiographer, Angelou was selected to read a poem at President Bill Clinton's first inaugural address. She was the first poet to read at an inauguration since Robert Frost read for JFK's 1961 ceremony, and both the first African-American and woman to read.

If Monica Lewinsky had her way, she wouldn't be a verb in the Beyoncé dictionary.
In her upcoming Vanity Fair essay, the former White House intern speaks out on the way her life has changed in the 15 years since her infamous affair with former president Bill Clinton. As part of that, she offers a cheeky correction to Beyoncé's "Partition," which name-checks Lewinsky in a verse about oral sex.
On the track, Beyoncé enthuses about a memorable limousine dalliance: "He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse, he Monica Lewinsky'ed all on my gown."

[YOUTUBE "6PNttGg-z84"] Former President Bill Clinton revealed a surprising pastime of his during his stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night: Aliens.
He mentioned that during his presidency, he had aides research Area 51 "to make sure there was no alien down there," and had files relating to Roswell, N.M., (the site of a purported alien sighting in 1947) reviewed during his presidency.

As recalled in her memoir, it was one of Hillary Clinton's lowest moments: the day her husband, the president, told her he had been having an affair with a White House intern.
"Gulping for air, I started crying and yelling at him," the first-lady-turned-secretary-of-state wrote in 2004's Living History. "'What do you mean? What are you saying? Why did you lie to me?'"
Now, nine years after her published memoir, newly unearthed journals are shedding light on how Clinton really felt about her husband Bill's infamous affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Our leaders spend so much time trying to seem folksy and down-to-earth that it's easy to forget that, in many ways, their lives are nothing like ours. Case in point: Hillary Clinton's recent admission that she hasn't driven a car in 18 years.
