:confused: yeah, that is kind of strange. It looks like her and Chuck D are gonna be the only two Black people there. Speaking of Chuck D, his association with this special is even stranger than Serena's.

Hmm, yeah strange! But, to Serena, it's just another opportunity to try out show business :-)

I tuned in and saw her on a little segment, she looked really beautiful. As for the show, I think Serena was just on there because of all the celebeties. She wasnt the only one though, what was Britney Spears doing on there? Wasnt she born like five years after elvis died?:confused:
