Pelosi gets rock star treatment:
The audience at Clive Davis’ white-hot gala included Barbra Streisand, Joni Mitchell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who got the most requests to take a selfie. Pelosi received rock star treatment Saturday night from attendees at the annual pre-Grammy event, which also featured a stunning tribute to the late Aretha Franklin. Pelosi’s sarcastic hand clap and smirk to President Donald Trump at his State of the Union address went viral last week and launched hundreds of memes. So when Davis announced that she was in the audience — Pelosi has attended in the past — she received a standing ovation. A wide range of celebrities attended the event, including Apple’s Tim Cook, recent Super Bowl champ Julian Edelman, Dionne Warwick, Kathy Griffin, Angela Bassett, Berry Gordy, Fred Armisen, George Clinton and Darren Criss.
