It's a selfie that shook the world — mostly the tabloid and online world. An animated self-portrait ("selfie" in Internet argot) of US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron taken by Denmark's blonde leaderHelle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela's memorial service on Tuesday titillated the prissy and the prurient across the world, before the photographer who captured the moment said it was no big deal and trashed modern-day obsession with trivialities.
Hands off my man! Michelle Obama shoots daggers at pretty Danish PM.
WHEN your husband is the most powerful man in the world, you can probably expect him to get a fair amount of female attention.But Michelle Obama is clearly not happy about it - and shows a face of thunder as she watched hubby Barack Obama flirting up a storm with pretty Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.
These hilarious pictures - captured at the Nelson Mandela memorial service in South Africa - show the US President smiling and joking with the blonde, blissfully unaware that Michelle is shooting daggers at the pair of them.
The flirting continued in a political threesome as David Cameron got involved in a selfie with the two world leaders.However, it looks like the First Lady didn't keep her bitterness a secret as a short while later she traded seats with her hubby, who was pictured looking stone-faced while his flirting partner was separated from him.
Sitting firmly between the pair, Michelle made sure everyone knew who was boss - and it's not her husband!
We would love to hear the tongue-lashing he was given on their way back to America...
