One of the guests on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening is the rapper and poet (and actor) Common, who was part of a recent controversy that erupted concerning his participation in a White House poetry reading. "Anybody that knows Common, they know the positive energy that comes out in my lyrics," he told Piers Morgan. "I kind of laughed at it. I wasn't hurt."
He also talked about his support of Pres. Barack Obama. "I believe the President has been not only a symbol of hope, but an activist for hope," he said. Watch the full interview tonight, 9pmET/PT. Also on tonight's show – Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men" and Mario Lopez of "H8R."
