Vladimir Putin sings 'Blueberry Hill'

Saturday, December 11, 2010

I'm seeing but I'm not believing: bad ass prime minister and ex-president of Russia Vladimir Putin took it to the next level this evening in St. Petersburg, when he sang Blueberry Hill on stage at a charity fundraiser dedicated to fighting children's cancer. All in the eyes of people like Kevin Costner, Gerard Depardieu, Mickey Rourke, Sharon Stone, Kurt Russell, Vincent Cassel, Monica Belucci, Ornella Muti and Goldie Hawn.
When the hostess approached Putin’s table and asked him to sing for the audience, his immediate reaction was “are you kidding me?”

But the hostess was determined to get the prime minister on the mic and reminded him about the songs he sang with the Russian sleeper agents extradited from the US last summer. Putin attempted to evade the proposal by saying that the singing she was referring to had come from the heart. However, after seeing the pictures of ill children shown to the audience on the big screen, he took to the stage.

"Like the majority of people I cannot – but do like to sing and to play – so you’ll have to rough it," he warned as he sat at the piano and played the beginning of Blueberry Hill. The tune was immediately caught by Maceo Parker’s jazz band. The prime minister then took the mic and sang it in English himself.

There they are - singing and clapping and smiling, with the murder of journalists like Anna Politkovskaja, the KGB agent from St. Petersburg, the supporter of the Khadyrov family that rule Tjetjenya with terror and corruption, Goldie Hawn, Kevin Costner, Gerard Depardieu - absolutely disgusting. No respect. No respect.

Long live democracy, remember Anna Politkovskaja.
