Stars Stunned And Proud By Obama Election Victory

Rapper KANYE WEST shared the news of BARACK OBAMA's U.S. election night victory with his late mother in a passionate blog entry.
Minutes after the Democrat was named the 44th President of the U.S. on Tuesday night (04Nov08), West posted a picture of Obama on his website and blogged, "HI MOM, OBAMA WON!”
Lindsay Lohan also used cyberspace to congratulate everyone who voted, stating, "OBAMA IS OUR PRESIDENT!” on her MySpace.com page.
Meanwhile, R+B star Alicia Keys waited until the day after the big night to share her thoughts with fans. She called in to MTV's TRL on Wednesday (05Nov08) show to coo about Obama's win.
She said, "I feel, like, a renewal, I feel an excitement. I feel, like, everybody you meet in the street... all last night, people were just honking horns... I just feel, like, this sense of 'Wow!'"
Keys watched the election results unfold with friends and "just stared at the TV" when Obama was named the new president.
She added, "I was screaming... (There was) such a pride. A friend of mine said, 'We are living in Martin Luther King's dream,' and I was so amazed by those words. It's true... We all need to be really proud of ourselves."
Meanwhile, director Michael Moore told fans he was a mess of tears after haring the news. In a post on his website, the fillmmaker wrote, "Who among us is not at a loss for words? Tears pour out. Tears of joy. Tears of relief. A stunning, whopping landslide of hope in a time of deep despair.”
