President Barack Obama Gives Jay-Z + Beyonce Parenting Tips
Regardless of your political leanings, President Barack Obama’s BFF-ship with Jay-Z and Beyonce is pretty awesome to watch. Obama, who’s a dad to two daughters, even offers the hip-hop power couple parenting tips for raising the beautiful Blue Ivy Carter. Too cute!
Obama recently spoke about the Carters in a radio interview when he was asked about his relationship to the family, Us Weekly reported. “I’ve gotten to know these guys over the first several years. They’re good people,” Obama enthused. “They’re down to earth. Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. So they’re good friends. They really are down-to-earth folks. We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z recently hosted a campaign fundraiser for Obama’s reelection at the 40/40 Club, so you know they’re tight. Does the President have a favorite song by the ‘Dead Presidents’ rapper? Indeed. Obama digs ‘My First Song,’ because it reminds him to “always stay hungry.” And Obama wasn’t lying about Michelle loving Bey. Indeed, Michelle and the girls even went to see Queen Bey at Revel in Atlantic City for her comeback weekend!
What advice did the P.O.T.U.S. have for Hov when Blue was born? “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyonce out and not leaving it all with mom and the mother-in-law,”he said. We bet Beyonce and her mom, Tina Knowles, appreciated that — but based on Jigga’s song ‘Glory,’ he likely didn’t need much encouragement to embrace being a dad.
