Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Taylor Swift has met a guy nicknamed Mr. President (that would be Nick Jonas, who took the metaphor so far as to call his side band the Administration), but on Tuesday night (May 4), she got to spend some quality time with an actual president. The pop-country superstar rubbed elbows with Bill Clinton at Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala, an annual event that brings together politicians, actors, musicians and other newsmakers in one place. This year, the event was held at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center in New York, and it allowed for a number of fantastic photo opportunities with various combinations of Swift, Betty White, Sarah Palin, Martha Stewart, Andy Samberg, Ben Stiller, Neil Patrick Harris and Judd Apatow, among dozens of others. In addition to being a guest, Swift also performed at the gala, as did Prince (though unfortunately the two did not team up on a funked-up remix of "You Belong With Me").
Swift wasn't the only star getting glamorous, as U2 frontman Bono attended the New York premiere of HBO's new AIDS documentary "The Lazarus Effect" and Good Charlotte's Benji Madden hung out at the Charlotte Ronson and JC Penney Spring Cocktail Jam in Los Angeles. Click here for these photos as well as the entire "Spotted!" archive, which contains over 400 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, 50 Cent, Katy Perry and the Jonas Brothers!
