President Obama Might Be Down With The Kids But He Can’t Pronounce “Lollapalooza”

President Obama continues to be down with the kids, at least where it concerns his musical references. After getting down to “Sweet Home Chicago” last month and releasing a Spotify playlist to soundtrack his campaign, the President has shown his love of music on several occasions. In his latest cultural reference, the Pres name-dropped the Lollapalooza festival amidst his talk on more pressing campaign issues. But unfortunately for Obama, he fumbled on his words, and in an uncharacteristic turn, garbled the word “Lollapalooza,” saying instead “Lapalooza,” although we all still knew what he was talking about, and that’s all that really matters anyway.
