But possibly the most controversial Outkast sighting has been Andre 3000's presence at the Republican National Convention in New York.

Contrary to a rumor that has been spreading faster than Farnsworth Bentley can steal a show, Dre is not attending the convention to support George Bush, or to perform.

'The reason why I'm here [is because] I'm doing a documentary on youth and voting,' Dre said at his hotel Wednesday night. 'I guess people got wind that I was coming here for the Republican convention, [but] they really didn't know the complete story. I wanted to clear it up. You had a lot of people around town, people in the streets, that heard I was supposed to be performing at the convention. A lot of people [are] riled up and upset, and that was never the case. It almost [leads] me to think, 'Who put it out there that I was performing?' I don't know if it was to bring heat to a certain party. I just want to let people know that this is a nonpartisan documentary I'm doing.'"
