New York, Oct 15 (ANI): US First Lady Michelle Obama apparently gave a cold shoulder to husband Barack after he did an impromptu salsa dance with spicy Latin pop star Thalia.

The surprise dance occurred during Fiesta Latina- a concert featuring Hispanic stars Gloria Estefan and Jose Feliciano, that took place inside a tent placed on the White House's South Lawn.

After the short dance with Thalia, cameras captured Obama returning to his seat and tried to say something to Michelle.

But the First Lady playfully blew him off.

Among the guests at the event were Obama's first appointee to the Supreme Court and its first Hispanic member, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and actors Jimmy Smits, Eva Longoria Parker and George Lopez.

"Like our own Latino community, Latin music is not easy to define," The New York Post quoted Obama as saying.

"Styles like Cuban salsa, Mexican norteqo, Puerto Rican reggaeton and Dominican bachata are as vibrant and unique as the places they come from," he added. (ANI)
