Former President Bill Clinton appeared mesmerized by vocalist Ariana Grande’s rear end as she took the stage to honor soul singer Aretha Franklin Friday.
Clinton, 72, was filmed during the funeral ceremony ogling Grande as she performed the Franklin song, “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” leading many online to point out the perverted behavior.
“Gross,” one Twitter user said. “Watch Bill Clinton look Ariana Grande up and down when she sings at #ArethaFranklinFuneral and try not to throw up in your mouth.”

You can invite Bubba to a funeral, but he'll still expect a lap dance…https://t.co/nrFlqyK0qP

Many claimed the ex-president was nearly falling asleep before Grande took stage, at which point he “lit up like a Christmas tree.”

For what it’s worth, Clinton’s wife and two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton also appeared ecstatic to meet the former Disney actress.

Clinton, who was sat in the front row of the memorial with the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, later gave remarks remembering Franklin.
