“And I have to say nice things about her because she may be the only person in possession of a video in which I try to keep up with her and Usher on the dance floor. Now, this is top secret. She has promised that this will never be released. But she can blackmail me at any time.”
— President Obama divulging a previously well-kept state secret during his remarks at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser Wednesday.
Apparently singer Janelle Monáe, a favorite of the Obamas, has video evidence of the president’s sweet moves. The “Electric Lady” crooner captured the commander in chief on camera during a star-studded after party at the White House following 2013’s inauguration ceremony.
“Let me say I did not drop in splits,” added Obama. Good to know.
(Could this video’s existence be the reason for the strict no-cellphone or social media rule at Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday bash in January?)
Wednesday night’s fundraiser was held in the Los Angeles home of “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes. Other big names in attendance were “Scandal” stars Kerry Washington, a long-time supporter of Obama, and Tony Goldwyn, who plays the president on the ABC show.
