Singer and new mother Beyonce has penned a heartfelt, handwritten letter to First Lady Michelle Obama and posted it on her website for public view.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are the proud parents of baby girl Blue Ivy, and perhaps it is the new role she has stepped into as a mama that has made her so appreciative of a strong female leader. The letter thanks the First Lady for being a positive role model and goes on to give the ultimate compliment:
"I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has you to look up to," Beyonce writes.
The "Single Ladies" singer and her man are known supporters of President Obama and have been known to rub elbows with them at White House functions; Beyonce recently partnered with the First Lady to battle childhood obesity. And the president has made it clear that his music choices run toward the super-couple, telling a reporter recently that he preferred Jay-Z over Kanye West, who is a "jackass".
It can only be to the first family's credit that the superstars support them; Beyonce's influence has a long arm. This is, after all, the woman who (finally) started a Twitter account recently and has almost 4 million followers already despite a single tweet.
