T-Russ in da Hizzle!
ParrotLine has learned that NBC's Meet the Press host Tim Russert has been selected to host the 2006 Vibe Awards, to be held in November at Barack Obama's house.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with this blog, Russert described his selection as "a great honor," and said that at the event, he planned to quiz the rapper Kanye West about assassinated civil rights leader Martin Luther King's inner thoughts during the "I Have a Dream" speech.
"It's something I've always been curious about," Russert said. "Finally, I'll have a chance to talk to somebody who clearly has the answers."
Some of Tim Russert's best friends are Barack Obama.
