Barbra Streisand, who crooned her support for Obama in ’08, admitted in December that she was “a little” disappointed in his leadership on the issue of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the military. (Streisand won’t participate in any of the fundraising events on Thursday due to scheduling conflicts, said a rep.)
Even Black Eyed Peas frontman wil.i.am, the force behind the incredibly popular “Yes We Can” video tribute to Obama, has expressed his frustration. “I don’t want to hope anymore. I don’t think we should hope anymore. We hoped enough. Now we have to do,” the artist said in a January interview with the New York Times.
Of course, just because a few stars are less gung-ho for Obama doesn’t mean the entertainment industry as a whole has soured on him.
