Beyonce, Jay-Z and the Obamas are the most powerful set of besties the world has ever seen, and it looks like the only thing stronger than their celeb clout is their affection for each other! The diva has posted a handwritten open letter to the First Lady on her new tumblr, citing her as “the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman.” Bey then goes on to list all the ways in Michelle is basically the most awesome person ever, and we should all be more like her. The effect is sweet, although a friendship collage might have been more appropriate. “No matter the pressure and stress of being under the microscope – she’s humble, loving and sincere,” she continues. “She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways.” But the real kicker comes at the end, so get your hanky ready. “Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u do for us – I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.”
The love-fest continues between the First Family of the US and the First Family of Pop, as Barack gave some serious props to Jay-Z. The Prez admitted to the Atlantic Magazine that he prefers Jay-Z’s tracks to Kanye West. OK, Jay had a 50-50 shot. But still, anyone who’s heard My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy knows that’s some high praise! The answer should have been obvious though, considering that Barack famously labeled Yeezy “a jackass” following the whole VMAs debacle in 2009. And now, two and a half years later, his opinion hasn’t changed much. “He is a jackass,” he confirms to Atlantic. “But he’s talented.” Gotta love a leader who doesn’t flip-flop on the issues!
