Beyonce Knowles has always been a girl's girl and a woman's woman. Ms. Destiny's Child herself, the star rose to fame in the entertainment game with her best girls singing by her side. She has also had girl power duets with her fellow Grammy Award winning female superstars such as Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys. Powerful women in Bey's life include her mom, designer/stylist Tina Knowles, and her sister, natural hair icon Solange Knowles. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Blue Ivy's breastfeeding mama is a fan of Michelle Obama.
The first lady and Mrs. Jay-Z have created a mutual admiration society between them. Beyonce has now released a video of herself reading a positive letter of support and adoration for Mrs. Obama. One thing's for sure, the video is being discussed all over the tube from "MTV News" to "ABC News" making it a smart move from the president's campaign.
The letter was first posted, handwritten by the starlet, on her blog back in April. FLOTUS tweeted her appreciation to the singer at the time, writing: "@Beyonce Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. -mo." The "mo" signature indicates that the first lady is personally tweeting.
Who could forget Beyonce's touching tribute to the president and first lady at Obama's first inauguration in 2009? Knowles sang Etta James' classic "At Last" as Barack Obama shared a romantic dance with his wife. It was a classic American moment.
Mrs. Obama was asked earlier this year who she would switch places with and she picked her girl Bey. Sasha and Malia's mom told People Magazine that the "Crazy In Love" singer was her choice for a fantasy life switcheroo. Why Beyonce? Michelle O. explained that, "It looks like musicians just have the most fun." She even took the girls to a Beyonce concert so that they could all do the "Single Ladies" dance up close and personal.
In the touching letter Bey says, "[Michelle] is a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the first lady. No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope, she's humble, loving, and sensitive." Well said, Mrs. Carter. Beyonce's love letter is a fitting tribute from one iconic woman to another.
