“This is history!” one Beyonce fan screamed as First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, sat down in private seats at Revels Casino and Resort to watch the “Bootylicious” diva in only her second live stage performance since giving birth to Blue Ivy in January, reports the Associated Press.
Fans screamed loudly and snapped pictures as she walked through the crowd in a shiny, green press.
As previously reported by NewsOne, when asked by People Magazine who is the one person in the world she would be if they could trade places, the First Lady said Beyonce:
“Gosh. If I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé, I’d be some great singer,” said Obama. “The power of music, being able to play an instrument…It looks like musicians just have the most fun.”
The love-fest between the First Ladies of the Obama and Carter families have long openly expressed their love and admiration for each other. From Beyoncé’s teary rendition of “At Last” in 2009 at President Obama’s Neighborhood Inaugural Ball, to the “Video Phone” singer’s open letter to the FLOTUS on Twitter, to which Mrs. Obama responded, “@Beyonce Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. –mo,” they have proven to be stead-fast in their appreciation of each other.
Still, at only 13 and 10-years-old, one has to wonder if a Beyonce concert, complete with border-line explicit lyrics and risque outfits, is an appropriate outing for the girls. As previously reported by NewsOne, Queen Bey’s set includes such classics as “Baby Boy,” “Irreplaceable,” Freakum Dress,” “Get Me Bodied,” “Jumpin’ Jumpin,” and more.
But we’re sure mother knows best. Maybe showing support for your friends is the lesson of the night — well, that, and a little bit of “Oh-Oh” dancing.
