Side Order: So I hear that Jennifer's PR people are denying that she will perform at Barack's inauguration. It would be a good look for her if she does, given the point in her career as well as the major opportunity and blessing to perform at a momentous event. I understand that she is still mourning, however I also hear she is in the studio. Either way, I hope she makes the right decision in the long run...
