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

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.
