Beyonce + Jay-Z Get Some Presidential Face Time — Photo of the Week
In case you’re wondering, no, your life is not as fabulous as Beyonce‘s.
Unless, of course, you and your superstar husband had a party for President Obama, after which the leader of the free world posted a photo of the three of you to his Twitter account to mark the occasion. Then, okay, maybe.
POTUS is good friends with Bey and Jay-Z — they supported him during his last campaign, and Beyonce sang as the Obamas danced at the 2009 inauguration. And, like many of us, they still believe in him.
So it was no surprise that on Tuesday night, the First Couple of Hip-Hop held a fundraiser for the president’s re-election campaign at Jay’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan, at which 100 well-heeled supporters shelled out cash to benefit the effort.
After he thanked his hosts, the president joked that he and Jay-Z have a lot in common, saying, “We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are.”
And speaking of daughters, POTUS went on to say, “Beyonce couldn’t be a better role model for our daughters because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent.”
Today, Obama tweeted the photo above with the caption, “A couple supporters in a New York state of mind last night.”
So yeah. She’s gorgeous, talented and rich, plus she married well and the president adores her.
But other than that? Feh. Nothing special. Nothing at all.
