Beyoncé Pens Thank You Letter to Michelle Obama
While plenty of liberal celebs are turning their backs on Barack Obama, Beyoncé remains a vocal supporter of the current President, and especially his wife.
The 30-year-old songstress has written an open letter to First Lady Michelle Obama, praising her as “the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman.”
The gushing letter also lauds Michelle, herself a mother of two, as the ideal role model for Beyoncé’s young daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. The ‘Halo’ singer wrote that she was “proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.”
Beyoncé posted the full handwritten letter on her official website, listing the attributes she most admires in the White House hostess. Michelle, noted the first lady of pop, is “humble, loving and sincere,” despite “the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope. She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways.”
It’s quite an effusive read, and ends with a line thanking Michelle for “every single thing that u do,” before signing off, “Love, Beyoncé.” Yeesh.
The Beyoncé/Obamas love-in isn’t a new thing, of course – the singer and her hubby Jay-Z have been long-time supporters of the current President, and have regularly appeared at Obama fundraisers down the years.
Only last month, Beyoncé appeared at a New York charity gig hosted by Michelle Obama and Robert De Niro, while she also designed a T-shirt for the ‘Runway To Win’ initiative, which is raising funds for the Obama re-election campaign.
