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!

Blue Ivy Carter photos are finally here and the golden child looks like…well, like any other new-born baby. Sweet and darling and sort of like a grandma, is how we could best describe her. In what we would consider a social media master stroke, mama Beyonce and pop Jay-Z put up several snapshots of baby Blue on a new Tumblr entitled helloblueivycarter this evening. Check out the adorable babe in arms…after the jump!
Celine Dion needs to learn how to take a joke. The Canadian singer has redefined “diva” by threatening legal action against the administrator of the ‘Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion” tumblr. As advertised, the site specialized in unflattering and funny photos of Dion, of which there are admittedly many to choose from. Apparently the singer stumbled onto the blog (while Google-ing herself?) and her lawyers sent the editor a cease and desist notice resulting in the site’s closure.
The humble blogger signed off with an entry entitled “Céline Dion vs. Yourself.” “Céline Dion found our blog, and she didn’t like it,” they wrote. “We just got a letter from Céline’s lawyers [saying that] that the blog has to be shut down. Though this blog is well within the realm of ‘fair use’, I don’t have the money or time to get a lawyer to respond. The dream is over. Thanks for following and being a Céline superfan. I’ll always remember u, I’ll never let go.”
This aggression will not stand! We don’t know about you, but we feel like spearheading a legal defense fund for the tumblr. It is our constitutional right to post absurd faces of Oscar winning chanteuses! Until the Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion tumblr is revived, we will post a ridiculous photo of Celine every HOUR (note to Celine’s lawyers: we won’t do this). Until this wrong is righted, no blog is safe. Flood the web with hilarious Celine faces! We must keep the dream alive! Bloggers of the world, unite!
