"I'm in love with Barack Obama... I wanna get married - like, I wanna have his kids," the New York Post quoted Gray, as saying on an episode of Starz's upcoming series "Head Case." She continues: "Why am I not Michelle, you know what I mean? Who the [bleep] is she? You know, why can't I be her?"
Gray was an early supporter of a Obama presidential campaign, almost two years before his official announcement, she wore a shirt saying 'Barack Obama for President' during the Hurricane Katrina fundraisers. To date, Gray has released four studio albums, one compilation album, and one live album—with her fourth studio album, Big, released in March 2007—and has received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one.
