President Barack Obama Had Moves Like Jagger, Writes New Biographer
In his new book, Barack Obama: The Story, Maraniss revealed many things about 44th president’s past as a young, carefree college student — including that he had a knack of impersonating a certain rock legend.
“Barry Obama played a lot of Hendrix, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Billie Holiday, but was known in the Annex for his wicked impression of Mick Jagger,” one passage from the explosive bio read [via Yahoo]. “He could do the walk, the strut, the face, and act out the dramatic scene of the Rolling Stones onstage at the Altamont Speedway outside Livermore, California, on December 6, 1969, …”
But that’s not all!
According to the biographer, Obama was quite the flirt back in his school days at Occidental.
“Barry launched into a riff on nudity, offering his theory that the human race would be better off if people did not wear clothes,” Maraniss wrote of Obama’s conversation with a female student one night on campus. “This declaration was made with the urgency of someone ready to strip then and there. … It seemed apparent that Barry was trying to seduce the woman…”
However, First Lady Michelle may have bigger problems to worry about — friend Mark Parsons spilled in the bio that Obama once said he would let himself go and get fat after he got married.
“I remember him telling me he would quit [cigarettes] after he got married. He didn’t want to quit smoking because he said he would gain weight, but after he got married it would be okay to gain weight. I think it was mostly a joke.”
Who knew the president was such a jokster? See him crack one about Fifty Shades of Grey in the video below!
