Inside Dinner With President Obama, Jay-Z & Beyoncé
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.
