Having secured his second term in the White House, U.S president Barack Obama is now ready to bust a move. The recently re-elected Obama claimed in an interview with WZID-FM that he believes he can pull off the moves. And, although he is unlikely to do the dance in public, he may do it in private for his wife, Michelle Obama:
"I just saw that video for the first time... I think I can do that move," he said of the gallop-style moved pulled by K-Pop star PSY in the video. "I'm not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out. Maybe do it privately for Michelle," he added.
Obama's connection with rock and pop musicians has become well known since he came into office. His recent re-election campaign featured appearances from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder and Dave Grohl. Grohl even dedicated a version of My Hero to Barack Obama while out on the campaign trail.
However, Obama's musical supporters haven't been so universally appraising. Back in 2011, Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters expressed his disappointment with the President, hoping that he would "develop bigger cojones":
"I'm very, very disappointed by his foreign policy. It obviously goes against everything that I believe. Having said that, it seems that the alternative to re-electing Obama would be such a heinous disaster for this country if you look at the candidates on the other side."
"So, I support Obama's attempt to become re-elected. But I hope he will develop bigger cojones and start governing in the way that I, and many of the people who supported him in the last election, would want him to."
