President Obama once suggested that Beyonce should get a foot massage, according to the latest report by People. Small, intimate details of the presidency are being told in a new tell-all book. The book entitled Power Forward: My Presidential Education was written by former ‘body man’ or personal aide Reggie Love, where he states that the president offered Queen Bey a massage to ease the pain of her aching feet.
The conversation came up after Beyonce had just returned from a tour, when she stated that her feet were “killing her.” To that comment, Obama responded,
“You have to have a masseuse to massage your feet. That must be in the budget for the tour production.”
To which Beyonce’s hubby Jay Z quickly replied,
“Yeah, so long as it isn’t a man.”
The president has been criticized heavily over the years about his relationship with Jay Z and Beyonce, with many stating that the relationship is just down right inappropriate.
In addition to Beyonce’s feet, Reggie Love states that Obama is also obsessed with his own feet, and that when he is unable to wear his favorite shoes for one reason or another—it’s a big deal. In the book, Love states the following.
“The man was particular about his feet. He wouldn’t just throw on any old pair of mukluks. They had to look a certain way, feel a certain way. Anytime he couldn’t wear his favored dress flats, it was an issue.”
Here’s another funny story. According to the Grio, during Obama’s 2008 campaign, he once walked in on Reggie Love while he had a woman spending the night in his room. Obama had wanted to discuss the day’s schedule but quickly left once he saw the woman hurrying to cover herself up.
Later on that day, Love told a very annoyed Obama the following.
“You know, sir, if it’s any consolation, I’m having the time of my life.”
“Well, Reggie, it’s actually not a consolation to me that my campaign for president can help subsidize your love life.”
Reggie Love’s book doesn’t seem to be too salacious—in fact—it’s pretty mild compared to many tell-all books. Love worked as Obama’s personal aide from 2008 until 2011.
In Vanity Fair, an ex-girlfriend revealed some rather intimate details about President Obama. In that article, she painted him as an interesting, passionate but conflicted man. About their love life, she stated that there was definitely a sexual warmness between them but that his warmth could be deceiving.
“he [Barack] speaks sweet words and can be open and trusting, there is also that coolness—and I begin to have an inkling of some things about him that could get to me.”
