How Ronnie Vannucci ”Grabbed Michelle Obama’s Ass”
The Killers are famous for their breathtaking albums such as the Hot Fuss, Day & Age and Sam’s Town. The American rock band is comprised of Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci.
During an interview with the NME magazine, Ronnie Vannucci revealed how he once “grabbed” American first lady’s ass. According to him, the whole incident happened during the band’s performance at the White House in Washington after receiving an invitation from the American President. After the band had performed, Michelle Obama apparently reached out to Ronnie for a hug.
“She was so tall and she covered me with her arms. According to the way I was positioned, I found myself grabbing her ass,” said the drummer. He also revealed that the band’s performance was the highlight of his entire career. However, he confessed that there was tight security at the White House.
“A female security guard explained to us the major rules and as we walked in, we were totally calm and relaxed. Obama was great!” he added.
It is clear that the 2010 incident was not intentional as it was just a matter of height and proper positioning before receiving a hug from the First Lady. But for Ronnie, the whole incident lingers in his mind daily.
