According to Livesteez, the Obama Camp has asked that the entertainers to stay the hell back right now:
Unfortunately, some of Barack Obama’s biggest backers won’t be in attendance tonight for his historical celebratory meeting. The Obama campaign has reportedly asked some of his famous supporters to stay away from his rally Tuesday night in Chicago’s Grant Park, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Although the campaign is reportedly grateful for the high-profile support, several prominent celebs have reportedly been asked “politely but very firmly” to skip the rally and focus on attending the Obama inauguration in January, should that occur, as reported by MTV.com. An Obama insider reportedly told the newspaper’s Bill Zwecker that Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Ben Affleck were among those asked to stay away from tonight’s festivities. “There really only needs to be one star in Grant Park, and that’s Barack,” the insider reportedly said. “There will be plenty of time for a new President Obama to be surrounded by famous fans, all hopeful about a new administration.” However, the paper reported that early Obama supporter Oprah Winfrey is confirmed to make an appearance at the rally in Grant Park. It is also expected that Winfrey will be with Obama as well as his family and inner circle throughout the night at their hotel in Chicago.
