The typically dour U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor apparently crowded into Harlem’s Apollo Theater with a ton of dancing celebrities over the weekend.
The New York Post reports today that the Republican House Majority Leader from Henrico was spotted Saturday at a fundraiser for the famed New York theater. The event featured Jamie Foxx, Lenny Kravitz, Jon Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige and Darlene Love. They were joined on stage by Katie Holmes and, inexplicably, Colin Powell.
But the Post says the “crowd offstage was just as starry, including Billy Joel, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Howard Stern, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, who was dancing on a chair by the evening’s end.”
While the Post lists Cantor as an attendee, it doesn’t report on the congressman’s dancing style, or if he danced, but his presence at the event isn’t totally out of character. Last year, Cantor revealed he’s a kind of rap aficionado during an interview with Politico.
“You have a little Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, and Wiz Khalifa and the rest on there,” Cantor told the publication. "Honestly the lyrics are horrendous and we try and have the cleaned up version."
