How does one to get to be Michelle Obama‘s BFF? If you’re Beyonce, you just write to the FLOTUS, and that too, in an open letter. As you know Beyonce launched her new site a little less than two weeks ago and posted a really sweet, handwritten letter to Michelle calling her “the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman.” She ended the note thanking Mobama with, “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.” Nothing like a good, honest letter to get our emotions up and running (I love you, Mom).
What was really awesome about this is that Michelle responded to Beyonce over Twitter! In what looks to be a personal tweet, Michelle wrote to Bey, saying, “Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. –mo.” Mrs. Obama’s camp them proceeded to tweet the link for the letter adding, “Beyonce writes a lovely letter to FLOTUS.” Damn. Who run the world? Between the two of them, we’re not really sure whose name to pick!
