Beyonce and her husband, Jay-Z hosted a fundraiser at the 40/40 Club owned by Jay-Z for President Obama. The power couple helped raise $4 million for the Pres and his re-election campaign, it was a whopping $40,000 a ticket dinner. Beyonce spoke very little at the event just saying “I can’t tell you how proud we are to host tonight’s event with President Obama. We believe in his vision.”
President Obama then went on the praise his hosts (via Deadline),
Let me just begin by saying to Jay and Bey, thank you so much for your friendship. We are so grateful. Michelle and Malia and Sasha are mad at me because they are not here. That doesn’t usually happen. Usually they’re like, we’re glad you’re going — we don’t need to go. But every time they get a chance to see these two they are thrilled, partly because they are just both so generous, particularly to my kids. And Malia and Sasha just love both of them.
Beyoncé couldn’t be a better role model for our daughters because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent. And Jay-Z now knows what my life is like. We both have daughters, and our wives are more popular than we are. So we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard, but it’s okay. It’s okay.
The Pres. also stopped by Late Show with David Letterman,
