Whatever it was, unless you had $40,000 to spare for night on the town, you probably missed out on the fundraising dinner Jay Z and Beyoncé hosted for President Obama at J’s 40/40 in NYC. Which means you missed out on Barack waxing poetic on his relationship with the entertainment power duo:
“To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship. Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls.”
Not that Sasha and Malia are really short on people to look up to, but it’s true! Bey really is a great role model. She’s talented, hard working, socially-conscious, and a devoted mother, daughter, sister, and wife. Plus, you know, she’s a big fan of their mom. And speaking of Michelle, Obama quipped that he and his host Jay Z actually have a lot 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 okay.”
See? 99 problems.
