Inside Dinner With President Obama, Jay-Z & Beyoncé

Submitted by on September 19, 2012 – 3:35 pm4 Comments

What better way to celebrate the beautiful refurbishment of his 40/40 club than for Jay-Z and wife Beyoncé to host President Obama for dinner?

The fundraiser was intimate and exclusive, with tickets priced at $40,000 per head (with 100 attendees, the Carters raised an impressive $4 million for their friend’s re-election campaign).

As the featured guest of the night, the President joked about his similarities with the rapper turned mogul. “Jay-Z now knows, you know, 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.”

He also spoke of his relationship with the superstar pair and his admiration for Beyoncé. ”To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship. Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls.”

The presidential election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

    I don’t like the fact that President Obama considers Jay-Z and Beyonce friends. AND why does he and Michelle think Beyonce’ is a good role model for their daughters when all she does is perform almost naked on a stage grinding and moving about subjectively. Haven’t they seen her perform? How in the hell is she a role model for two young girls! This relationship really disappoints me. I think President Obama and First lady Michelle are more classy and sophisticated to be on the level of an ex thug and a high school dropout who is more famous for her strong sexual performances on stage. I am so disappointed in the Obama’s. I’m a die-heart democrat but he might not get my vote due to this “new” inappropriate friendship. I know he needs the 4 million dollars they collected, but to sell out for the relationship of a rapper that curses and calls women bitches and whores and a girl that sings about sex all the time. Come on Mr. President is this really what it has come down to?

    they are more positive than you are making them to be.
    but I guess you never gave them a chance and I have not heard Jay-z once call a girl a BITCH or a WHORe in his lyrics

    but of course you just need something NEGATIVE to say about PRESIDENT OBAMA!
