Michelle Obama Responds To Beyonce’s Letter, Making Them The Coolest BFFs Ever

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!

Beyonce Gushes Over Michelle Obama In An Open Letter While Barack Gives Props To Jay-Z

 

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!

Is Britney Spears Getting $15 Million To Do X-Factor? The Suspense Is Killing Us!

Are we doing this or not, girl? We’ve been hearing rumors about Britney Spears’ X-Factor gig since the end of February…and approximately every 45 minutes since. According to E! News, however, our wait is finally over, with BritBrit signing on to the tune of $15 million, a package deal that also snags her fiance Jason Trawick a spot as producer on the show. “Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee,” their insider claims. “That was the big sticking point and now, thankfully, it’s been sorted. All they need to do now is work out the smaller points.” Wait, there are smaller points to be worked out after someone pays you $15 million and gives your husband a job? What, like which chair you get? Get that money and run, girl!

Meanwhile, a source reporting to Us Weekly claims Britney Spears will be signed on for $16 million. Is that what it’s going to take? A million more? Considering Beyonce was rumored to be joining for $100 million a season, we say Simon Cowell is getting a serious bargain. JLo is going to be so pissed, seeing as how she’s allegedly only making $12 million to judge AI. Plus, you know she probably took whatever chair they gave her!

The Hot Pink Showdown: Beyonce VS Christina Milian

You couldn’t miss either Christina Milian and Beyonce yesterday thanks to the primary color of their respective wardrobe choices. They both worked it out in different doses of hot pink. Christina sat with another Christina (Aguilera) courtside at the Lakers game yesterday wearing a pair of tight fuchsia pants with matching open-toed, strappy high heels. What a cutie! Beyonce, on the other hand, was a lot less bodycon and a lot more bohemian. She swanned around on the other coast, in midtown New York, wearing a hot pink, long-sleeved top tucked into a flowing patchwork skirt. Sunglasses, a fedora and pumps finished off the look. So what we really have to know is, who pulled off the color better? We can’t decide. Perhaps you can help us make up our minds! Vote, vote, vote!

Beyonce And Baby Blue Are A Covert Duo

You’re not going to see Blue Ivy Carter unless Beyonce and Jay-Z want you to see Blue Ivy Carter! We get that Blue’s name may just get trademarked so image management is key, right? Seriously, though. We haven’t seen a glimpse of the gorgeous baby’s mug ever since Mom and Pops gave us a peek. These shots were taken as Bey was stepping out of a doctor’s office in the Upper East Side in New York with her Mum and entourage. You would think that Blue was a national treasure, the way she’s being swaddled. All we get to see are her little legs. Wait, what are we talking about? She is a national treasure! Swaddle away, mamma. But how about a peek at her once in a while huh, Jay-Bey? You take the photographs, we’ll gush. It’s a win-win!

Beyonce Slips Into A Pair Of Sexy Hawaiian Magic Eye Pants In NYC

We so often describe things as “crazy pants”; it’s only right this moment that we realize how few of those things are actually pants! Not that the festive floral bottoms Beyonce rocked in New York today were really nuts per say. In fact, they are probably exactly the type of thing that a hot new mom would wear…if she was on vacay in Honolulu…and wanted everyone to stare at her legs with their eyes unfocused until they saw a T. Rex. Or a schooner! Alternately we also like the idea that Bey is using her pants to transmit some kind of secret code to Katy Perry, letting her know all is forgiven now that the “Part of Me” singer explained her alleged insult about Bey’s song “Beautiful Liar.” Yup, looks like we are willing to take any explanation at this point because, dang, that is a bold print!

On the other hand, if Beyonce‘s pants are actually an ingenious strategy cooked up by her P.R. team and the Tourism Board of Hawaii to highlight all the baby weight she’s lost since bringing Blue Ivy into the world, it is working. Look at that tiny little belt! It looks like it’s hovering there in the slender abyss! On the flip size, if black is typically thought of as slimming, Beyonce must want her crotch to be invisible. And her canary yellow shoes all our eyes can see!

First An Iffy Kanye Cover, Now Beef With Beyonce? Pull It Together, Katy Perry!

As Katy Perry herself would put it, “This is about to get embarrassing.” While visiting BBC Radio 1 yesterday, Perry allegedly took a pot shot at Beyonce. Beyonce, of all divas! According to PopDust, the “Part of Me” singer busted out the insult when describing her rumored song with Rihanna. “We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet,” Perry explained. “It’s one of those things that’s got so much build up that we have to deliver. I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,’ not ‘Beautiful Liar.’” Yup, that’s a burn right there! In case you aren’t as dedicated a Shakira fan as we are, “Beautiful Liar” is the joint Beyonce dropped with the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer in 2007. Why Katy would bring up their duet as an example is a mystery to us. She practically had to blow dust off that song to even start this beef. Don’t eat that beef, Katy! That beef is far too old!

We’re sure Perry didn’t mean her comment to seem so snarky, but seeing as how her zinger comes less than a day after she broke it down with that highly questionable cover of Kanye and Jay-Z “N—-s in Paris,” we’re going to suggest girl take a day off and pull it together before she does something even more cringe-worthy. “…I definitely want to do something that is so iconic,” Perry concluded about her upcoming collabo with RiRi. “Rihanna’s kind of busy too. We’re both busy but we planted the seed two years ago. How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.” Yes, you do Katy Perry. Yes, you do. Unless your name is Beyonce, of course. Oh burn!  Let yet another beef…begin!

Beyonce Shows Off Slim Figure On Date Night With Jay, Mom And Sis

OK, well, we assume Jay-Z and Beyonce get out for more romantical-type evenings than last night’s outing, but any night out counts as a date night for new parents, right? Bey wore a flattering, body-hugging blue Victoria Beckham dress with matching blue nails and shoes (it’s cheesy, but we love that she’s got a Blue Ivy theme going here) to attend a fundraiser held by Michelle Obama and co-hosted by Robert De Niro at his Greenwich Hotel on Monday night. Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Stiller, Angela Bassett, Alfre Woodard, Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman were the other big-name guests, per the New York Daily News along with Solange and Tina Knowles. Jay, Beyonce, Solange and Tina were later snapped leaving Tribeca sushi hotspot Nobu.

We can’t get over how skinny the new mamma looks already. Politics and Japanese cuisine sound like very manageable elements of a post-baby diet — much more than hiring a live-in trainer for twice-daily workouts.

Beyonce And Blue Ivy Enjoy The Early New York Spring

After that initial first glimpse of Blue Ivy Carter and a couple of walks two weeks ago, we haven’t seen much of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s firstborn. We already know that Bey is look lovely so soon after giving birth, and we mean all the time. But while we love us some glam Queen B, we were hankering to see some relaxed momma-daughter shots. Today is that day, folks. You may not be able to see Blue Ivy’s face, but that’s her up there secured to Beyonce. And she’s even got herself a blue pacifier (photo on the right), bless! This is what we like to see. These shots were taken in Tribeca, New York, just yesterday as the singer took her daughter out for a walk. Looking good, family Carter!
