“Single Ladies” singer Beyonce sends a warm, fuzzy message to First Lady Michelle Obama via her Tumblr account
There might not be much love lost between President Obama and Kanye West. But it's a whole different story when it comes to his wife Michelle and another musical icon, Beyonce.
The "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" songbird published a hand-written mash note to the First Lady on her Tumblr page (via Politico) recently, calling Obama "the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman.
"She is a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the FIRST LADY!!!!!" Beyonce's gush-fest continued. "No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope — she's humble, loving and sincere."
The singer wrapped up the missive by calling Obama a role model for her daughter, Blue Ivy.
"Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u do for us — I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to."
The singer and the First Couple have something of a history together. Beyonce performed the Etta James staple "At Last" for the Obamas at the Neighborhood Ball on inauguration night in 2009, and performed at the White House State Dinner that hosted Mexico's president Felipe Calderon in 2010.
