Beyonce and Jay-Z Support President Obama’s Re-Election with Million-Dollar Fundraiser
With Beyonce on his side, there’s pretty much no way President Obama can lose.
Jay-Z and Beyonce played host to a lavish fundraiser at Jay’s 40/40 club in New York City for President Obama, which reportedly raised $4 million dollars and cost donors $40,000 per plate.
And unlike when he knocked his other famous hip hop supporter Kanye West on the head for being rude to Taylor Swift, Obama did everything he could to link himself to hip hop’s classiest and richest power couple.
The L.A. Times reports that the president noted that he and Jay-Z have one thing in common.
“We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard but it’s OK,” said Obama.
The president also praised Beyonce as a role model for his daughters.
“Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls,” Obama said.
Now wait a minute. Beyonce is certainly one of the better behaved pop stars of her generation, but does the president mean that Sasha and Malia should look up to Beyonce for her mean pelvic thrust game?
And what about when she was bragging about how none of these “bitches” could fade on her “Run the World” and throwing up the middle finger at the camera?
Okay, we’ll stop.
Anywho, we wonder if President Obama put in a request for Beyonce’s song selection when she sings at his inaugural ball next year.
No, there hasn’t been any official announcements about that yet, but after the stellar job Bey did in 2008, how could they not ask her back?
