Try to imagine Donald Trump dancing. It’s hard, right? You just see him standing there with a silly grin, thumbs up in approval of some strange, yuppie-approved soundtrack.
Don’t worry: Ian Schrager can’t imagine him dancing either, and Schrager was the founder of legendary New York City nightclub Studio 54, a place the now-president used to frequent in its heyday of the late 1970s and early ’80s.
He recently opened up to The Guardian about the big names that came through the hallowed dance halls to escape. Some of them were stoic. Some of them let loose. Diana Ross reportedly sang along to her own songs in the DJ booth.
“Every celebrity or big shot came to Studio 54,” Schrager is quoted. “Nobody pestered anyone for an autograph, so they could be themselves. Andy Warhol was shy and just liked to watch. Mick Jagger was the same as he was on stage and Diana Ross was an amazing dancer. I never saw Donald Trump dance, though. He was a serious guy.”
The article also touches on the club’s wild antics, constant battles with the city and other perfectly absurd things that once were a part of reality. Read the full story via The Guardian.
