Katie Holmes and Colin Powell Cut a Rug with Dorky Aplomb, Own Their Uncoolness

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 27, 2013 | Comments ()


Over the weekend, an event was held called “Apollo in the Hamptons: A Night of Legends.” It basically sounds exactly like you think: A Night at the Appollo featuring insanely wealthy people like Jamie Foxx, Katie Holmes, Ellen Degeners, and Colin Powell. This is how the other half lives, folks: They get together on a Saturday night at Ron Perelman’s East Hampton estate, bring out The Roots, Lenny Kravitz, Jon Bon Jovi, and Pharrell and dance their fool asses off because it’s OK to embarasss yourselves in front of your rich friends, right?

This is the scene in action:

As you can see there, Katie Holmes has mistaken shoulder exercises for dancing, while Colin Powell is a lip bite away from dancing like Kevin James in Hitch. But I sure do appreciate the fact that they ain’t care. That’s the magic of Daft Punk: Throw all your inhibitions away, and do whatever the hell you want in front of your insanely wealthy friends.

Here’s a Instagram from Questlove, where it appears that Colin Powell is attempting the Macarena.

Here’s Katie Holmes, feeling the music.


It was all for a good cause, too, as the rich people dug into their pcokets and raised $3 million for The Apollo.

    That is not the Macarena. That facial expression takes it to Jump On It territory.

  • See, that's why I don't donate to charity, because I don't have any pcokets to dig into and find money in. If I were rich I bet I'd have pcokets.

  • Batesian

    Heck, I'm not even rich enough to know what a pcoket is.

  • From what I am given to understand, they're generally found attached to pnats.

  • e jerry powell

    I didn't know that the Apollo was allowed outside of Harlem, much less in the Hamptons.

    I'm betting there was heavy security, though, so it's okay.

  • I'm pretty sure cake was on the menu.

  • BigBlueKY

    I'd much rather watch these dorks than Miley Cyrus ANY day of the week.

  • George Tarleton

    You know, Katie Holmes may be dancing like that kid from A Charlie Brown Christmas, but she looks happy and healthy and like she's having fun, which is nice to see post-Cruise. So what the hell. Get down with your gawky self, girl.

  • Word. The recovery of an actual person from inside the bleakness that was Katie's robo-shell for so many years ... it's what gives me hope that someday Britney, too, may reemerge? If I ask the Universe pretty please?

  • We still care about Britney? Did we ever? I mean in a Pajiba-sense - of course we care that a human is living in a self-degrading fashion and we hope they aspire to pull out of it.

    APOLLO in the Hamptons? Someone take these people's black cards away.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I like to imagine that immediately after these pictures were taken the Sandman came and used his cane to push all these people into the ocean.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Based on that intense stare, me thinks Colin Powell wants to inspect Pharrell's pants for a weapon of mass destruction.
