    Former US President Bill Clinton was blasted and became a walking meme on social media after viewers noticed that he was seemingly left dazed with admiration while watching pop star Ariana Grande sing at soul legend Aretha Franklin's funeral on Friday.

    Bill Clinton looked hypnotized since he couldn't take his eyes off of Ariana Grande, who wore a little black dress and high heels, as she performed Aretha Franklin's hit single, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.

    Unsurprisingly, his facial expression couldn't go unnoticed  on social media, with some suggesting that Grande's performance had brought “Uncle Bill” back to life.

    Meanwhile, others believed that the entire situation looked very gross and creepy, with many also pointing out that Clinton was not the only person who paid attention to Grande.

    Some stressed that the bishop, pastor Charles Ellis, who officiated the memorial service for Frankin, had touched the pop singer inappropriately.

    Some, however, blamed Grande for the stares and touching because of her tiny attire that many deemed inappropriate for the funeral of the Queen of Soul.

    Together with his wife Hillary, Bill was among those who gave a moving speech to honor Franklin.

    «We started out not as President and First Lady, but as Aretha groupies or something,” he said, adding to she had the power to pull a crowd “not because she had this breathtaking talent, not because she grew up a princess of soul, but because she with courage. Not without fear, but overcoming her fears.”
