Don’t worry, he doesn’t get naked in a bath…
Russian president Vladimir Putin has tinkled the ivories for a rendition of the Britney Spears classic Everytime… well, that’s what we’re supposed to think.
Some genius out there seized the opportunity to take a clip of the world leader performing on a piano and overlay it with the US popstar’s popular ballad.

If only he sang along too…
Meanwhile, the Russian leader recently confirmed that he would speak to officials in Chechnya about the ongoing detention and abuse of gay men in the region.
However, after an ‘investigation’ he concluded that the reports were false. Hmmm.
That’s despite Chechnya’s president, Ramzan Kadyrov, having publicly declared that he wants all LGBT+ people in the country to be eliminated by May 26, which marks the start of Muslim holiday, Ramadan.
Novaya Gazeta first reported in March that around 100 gay men had been rounded up by police and detained in what is widely being referred to as a modern-day ‘concentration camp’.
Moreover, Human Rights Watch later confirmed the horrific reports, adding that the information coming through was “consistent” with “numerous trusted sources” they had spoken to on the ground in Russia.
