Beyonce Is Hard Core Mom-Crushing On Michelle Obama

By  | 

Beyonce Knowles and Jay-ZMothers generally look to one another for support. Despite whatever superficial Mommy Wars is being waged in the Twittersphere, mommies of all parenting styles can often be in awe of one another. There is a reason the celebrity mom industry is as powerful and lucrative as it is in that plenty of women with children mom crush — big time. Around our office alone, I’ve witnessed the mom-crushing of some our editors on Julianne Moore, Tilda Swinton, and even Gwyneth Paltrow. I am, however, shocked to learn that even Beyonce — the newly crowned celebrity goddess of motherhood — has a mom crush of her own, and a very respectable one at that.

Beyonce hand wrote an open letter to First Lady Michelle Obama, which she posted on her website, writing in her bubbly script that she was “proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.” In addition to describing her as “humble” and “kind,” Bey wrote how she admires Michelle for functioning “under a microscope” while “looking out for so many millions in so many ways.”

Beyonce has already been spotted attending a Michelle Obama fundraiser last month, so it would appear that the iconic singer has taken quite a strong liking to the First Lady specifically as a mother of a little girl. I wish the new BFFs all the best manis and pedis money can buy and look forward to seeing paparazzi photos of them brunching.
