President Barack Obama Rocks Michelle’s Bangs at White House Dinner

President Barack Obama Rocks Michelle’s Bangs at White House DinnerHere at Grazia HQ, we’ve always been massive fans of US President Barack Obama, but when he turned his hand to comedy on Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, our obsession reached a whole new level. Who knew he was such a budding comedian!?

Entering to the rap track ‘All I Do Is Win' by DJ Khaled, Obama joked about how re-election would allow him to unleash a radical agenda. But then he showed a picture of himself golfing on a mock magazine cover of Senior Leisure. Gag 1...

“I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,” he joked, and proceeded to mock his performance at the White House Easter Egg hunt and basketball game. Gag 2...

However, when the president unveiled a montage of shots featuring him with a fringe similar to his wife’s, it seemed the biggest change to his second-term would be aesthetic.

“So we borrowed one of Michelle’s tricks,” Obama said. “I thought this looked pretty good, but no bounce.” Explaining why he showed himself with the fringe, Obama said he wanted 'a little energy' and a 'bit of change' for the next stage of his presidency.

Obama also joked about his relationship with Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z when he said, “I've got 99 problems and now Jay- Z is one."

Oh Barack- we love you. Just maybe leave the bangs to Michelle next time...

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    Watch a man drive his three-wheeled Mustang along a Texas highway

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.
