Maskless Obama hits the dancefloor at celeb-filled ‘scaled back’ Martha’s Vineyard 60th birthday bash


Former President Barack Obama was caught on video dancing maskless at his 60th birthday party on Saturday night in Martha’s Vineyard.

In a video posted to Instagram by 50-year-old American singer-songwriter, Erykah Badu, Obama could be seen holding a microphone and strutting his stuff in the middle of the raised dance floor.

Obama could seen wearing an untucked, light grey patterned shirt and white pants together with some black beads around his neck as he made his way across the floor, to cheers from gathered guests.


Badu had been performing with members of her band and managed to convince Obama to get on stage as part of the celebration.

While the president’s back was turned, she managed to take a selfie video capturing Obama fully in the frame, which she then posted directly to Instagram.

Badu gave a cheeky smile to the camera as she did so, perhaps knowing that such photography had been banned.

Huge crowds of people could be seen in the background, despite Obama insisting the event had been scaled back because of the spread of the Indian Delta variant of Covid.

The party was held in a giant tent at Obama’s $12million mansion, and began around sunset and lasted until the small hours of the morning.

But with the coronavirus still a concern, the event drew some raised eyebrows after the host’s claim it had been ‘scaled back’ from a guest list of 500.

‘It’s hypocrisy at its finest and shows they don’t believe what they are saying,’ Republican Party consultant Ryan James Girdusky said to the New York Post. 

‘The liberal elites are laughing at us, attempting to sell this as a ‘scaled-back party,’ ‘ said GOP chairwoman and upstate New York Rep. Elise Stefanik.  ‘Rules for thee and not for me.’
