Last night, Beyonce and Jay-Z played host to an Obama Fundraiser that commanded a $40,000 entry fee. But it was that hefty price tag that racked up $4 million in fundraising dollars for the POTUS.
Barack & Michelle and Beyonce & Jay-Z are basically besties now. Aside from last night’s fundraiser, Barack introduced Jay via video at the Made In America music fest earlier this month and Beyonce performed at an Obama tribute concert the night before he took the oath of office nearly four years ago.
During the expensive dinner, held at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub in Manhattan, Obama got in front of the audience on a small stage and told the audience how much The Obamas adore Beyonce.
“Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent,” says the POTUS.
Then Barack got into the jokes-portion of his evening when he said, “Jay knows what my life is like. We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are.”
BOOM! DROPS MIC! Obama jokes are the best. Because they are just funny…enough.
Guests at the event said the nightclub was comfortable and the Prez gave his usual “hard work will take you far” speech. Obviously Jay-Z is a perfect example of this, he went from dealing crack to owning basketball teams. Hard word really will take you far.
“To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship,” says the Prez.
