Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Crazy In Love by Beyonce. In UK Breathe by Blu Cantrell featuring Sean Paul was in the top 5 hits. Lost in Translation, directed by Sofia Coppola, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2003 while Trading Up by Candace Bushnell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wild Card. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds or Cross Channel (visual novel).
