Leona Too Busy for President Obama?

It’s been reported that Leona Lewis has turned down an invite from President Obama and his wife Michelle to join them for dinner at the White House.  Her excuse?  Too busy.

“Leona was thrilled to be invited to dinner by Obama. She really wanted to meet him and his wife Michelle, who is a big fan and has her Spirit album. But it was really unfortunate that it clashed with her tight schedule to get her second album done.”

“Leona has had studio sessions in Los Angeles booked for months and has been working day and night getting things perfect. So there was no way she could make the trip to the White House.”

Wow.  To be fair, she is British, but still – turning down an invitation from the President of the United States for studio time seems a bit excessive.  She couldn’t take a day off?  Really?

Do you think she should have made time to sit down with Obama and his wife?
