FLOTUS Body Double Parties With Britney Spears, Probably On U.S. Dime

by Blair Burke

That's MRS. Flotus to you...Yawn, there goes Michelle Obama again, partying in Europe with a bunch of celebrities when she is supposed to be doing her job (locking Malia in her room until she eats her broccoli). This time, our FLOTUS is not even trying to mask her frivolous night out as “official business,” shamelessly eating at an Indian restaurant with Britney Spears, Mr. Bean and Pavarotti while Americans’ tax dollars most likely paid for every single samosa. Actually, though, it was not Michelle Obama herself that enjoyed the party in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, whatever that is. It was her secret body double! So how much money does that Michelle Obama steal from the pockets of hardworking Americans?

Apparently the British have nothing better to do than goof around in Indian restaurants and confuse paying customers, which is of course why we had to Revolution against them back when Jesus ruled Washington, DC. So they sent their most convincing “celebrity lookalikes” to take amusing photos and get some laffs. “Celebrities” in this case would be Michelle Obama and the cast of BBC’s The Office.

They are all professional lookalikes – and caused a few raised eyebrows when they gathered in the unlikely setting of an Indian restaurant in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

Diners at the Apne restaurant were stunned to see Britney Spears feeding Simon Cowell onion bhajis – before whacking him when he pinched one too many. Cowell’s double Andrew Monk, 52, was once chosen by the music mogul as his favourite lookalike, while Spears impersonator Michaela Weeks, 27, has received recognition on the singer’s website.

Michelle Obama is better known as Dionne Rose, 46, and Formula 1 driver Jenson Button goes by the name of Nick Lancaster, 29.

The group, led by the Pavarotti doppleganger Colin Miller, 60, will compete in the global lookalike contest ‘Reel Awards’ in Las Vegas on February 21 next year.

Colin, who earns up to £1,000 a week for appearing as the late opera singer, said: ‘We are all looking to fly out to Las Vegas to take part in an annual convention for look-a-likes. Every year, Americans romp away with the awards. We want to go out there to fly the flag for Britain.

‘Americans like to come first and it is our plan to get a good number of lookalikes together and go over and take part.

Surprisingly, or maybe not, because no one does racist comments quite like the U.S. of A., the Michelle Obama lookalike did not receive as much criticism as she probably should have, for wasting so much of America’s time at a joke party with the mean man from American Idol. The only one taking racist hits was, somehow, Mr. Bean:

Haven't we had a body double in the White House for these past few years? Where is the Barry we elected?

That would be this guy: http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/should-obam

The real Barack Obama has been quietly living in South America working as a photographer. It certainly explains a lot.

Diana Ross is now a look alike? Wow… tough times.

Dr_Zoidberg September 8, 2011 at 11:22 am

Oh, hell no. That woman looks nothing like out fabulous Flotus.

Looks like the FLauxTUS needs to eat fewer wings, more arugula.

Where's the Mitch McConnell look-alike? That guy, I wanna see. (And maybe have my body double punch him in the wattle.)

"Americans like to come first"

So now you understand why all the ladies here get moist for the guys with the european and aussie accents. Women's intuition, we can just tell.

That plane she took over there probably put 20 gallons of Nitrous Oxide in the air!

AlterNewt September 8, 2011 at 11:24 am

This Michelle Obama lookalike. Does she do…(ahem)…private events?

Lascauxcaveman September 8, 2011 at 12:03 pm


(But I'd be weirded out if you asked the same thing about the Mr. Bean lookalike.)

AlterNewt September 8, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Me too.

Mahousu September 8, 2011 at 11:26 am

Is it rude to point out the Michelle Obama lookalike does not, in fact, look like Michelle Obama?

freakishlywrong September 8, 2011 at 11:29 am

I was thinking the same thing. The only thing she has in common with our FLOTUS is skin color. *See my comment above.

Doktor Zoom September 8, 2011 at 2:50 pm

That's OK. The only thing the "Ricky Gervais" has in common with Ricky Gervais is a goatee.

Here's your Mitch McConnell double.

P.S. Did anyone notice that Fred Hiatt gave Mr. Elaine Chao an oped in the War Criminal Post this weekend to bitch about jerbs?

if i were michelle, i would send my doppleganger to the white house full time and spend four – eight years in the luberon.

Goonemeritus September 8, 2011 at 11:29 am

We used to create the trends that Britain followed (admittedly in a weird only semi recognizable way). Since Margaret Thatcher it has gone all pear shaped now we are following them. I confidently predict closed circuit cameras being rolled out here in mass and hoodie clad idol youth trampling my lawn within the decade.

The fake Pavarotti looks just as dead as the real one.

I've been told that I like Jesse Ventura. I am not sure I want to look like Jesse Ventura.

I'd much rather look like Bill Gates (or at least have my bank account look like his).

ttommyunger September 8, 2011 at 11:35 am

I'd hit the double, too.

AlterNewt September 8, 2011 at 11:58 am

Lends new meaning to "Gimme a double".

anniegetyerfun September 8, 2011 at 11:41 am

"Hit me, baby! The day Becks and Brent had a curry with Britney (who was none too pleased when Cowell scoffed all the onion bhajis)"

I can't tell if I am simply horrified that that is a headline in the UK, or tickled that British people obviously know enough about their national cuisine (curry) to be able to read the word "bhaji" in print without necessitating a footnote.

charlesdegoal September 8, 2011 at 11:41 am

So this is what they did in Richard-Burton-on-Trent-Lott, Straponshire? I thought it was going to be a sound-alike contest,

JustPixelz September 8, 2011 at 11:41 am

"… back when Jesus ruled Washington…"

Can't you just say "yesterday", Blair?

MARCdMan September 8, 2011 at 11:43 am

The Pavarotti and Gervais lookalikes were the only decent ones, the rest aren't even close.

jus_wonderin September 8, 2011 at 11:43 am

but, but, but…who is JENSON BUTTON?

Was Elvis there too?

johnnyzhivago September 8, 2011 at 11:45 am

Indian food??? Taking jobs from Americans….. She should have McDonalds shipped over. That's would turn a night of partying into a jobs plan.

"Samosa?" Don't you mean "mimosa?"

Leave Michelle Alone!!!! Leave her alone!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a jobs plan: federally mandated doubles for every person in the US. It would mean at LEAST 50% employment immediately.

SayItWithWookies September 8, 2011 at 11:56 am

Hell, I don't even know most of the people these lookalikes are supposed to look like — although I am pretty happy I don't have to make money pretending to be Simon Cowell — there are things more depressing than being a regular schlub, and that'll be on the list of things I'm grateful for at least the rest of the week.

Lascauxcaveman September 8, 2011 at 12:06 pm

The Pavarotti one is almost too lifelike. A dead ringer.

gurukalehuru September 8, 2011 at 12:55 pm

Oh, say, for what were alehouses meant
and why was Burton built on Trent
for malt does more than Milton can
to justify God's ways to man

anyway, of the ones I know (the East Ender lady could be the real deal and just saying she's a body double for all I know. Rembrandt used to paint fake Rembrandt's because he could get more for them) I thought Britney, Pavarotti and Elton John were pretty good. Mr. Bean and Michelle Obama weren't even close

SudsMcKenzie September 8, 2011 at 1:06 pm

"Burton-on-Trent"?? Staby Island is sooo gay.

Negropolis September 8, 2011 at 10:08 pm

I know, right? They might has well have named their proud town Burton-upon-Ernie.

owhatever September 8, 2011 at 1:26 pm

You mean I wasted a whole pint of genuine Teabagger venom on somebody that wasn't even the Evil One? That's not fair, but what can you expect from that ebony vixen daughter of Satan.
