It's Independence Day and Kendrick Lamar and Janelle Monae are celebrating by performing at the White House today. President Obama, and first lady Michelle Obama, will host military veterans and their families for a barbecue, fireworks and concert from the two.

"White House staff and their families from throughout the administration will also attend this event for the fireworks viewing," White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today. "There will also be a performance on Monday evening by fellow Kansas Citian Janelle Monáe and Kendrick Lamar." Huge.
