Jay-Z and Beyonce hosted a private fundraiser for President Obama on Sept. 18 in New York, and the commander in chief gave the ‘Single Ladies’ singer a special shout-out!

One is an outspoken hip-hop mogul and one is the leader of the free world, but Jay-Z and President Barack Obama have a lot more in common than you would think. The president, who is vying for a second term in the upcoming election, attended a private fundraiser in midtown Manhattan hosted by Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce — at $40,000 a head! — and paid an endearing compliment to the superstar couple.

“To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship,” the president said.

“Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent.”

He also made an endearing comparison between himself and Jay-Z, pointing out, “we both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are,” Obama said in reference to his daughters Sasha and Malia, and Jay-Z’s baby Blue Ivy Carter. He also made a jab at Michelle Obama‘s higher approval rating.

“So, you know, we’ve got a little bond there,” he joked. “It’s hard, but it’s OK.”

What a nice thing to say! Do YOU agree with Obama HollyMoms?

Role Model, lol! That shows how stupid and racist this president is. Yeah she’s great, she earned her money grinding on every guy in her videos while wearing practically nothing and her husband is a disgusting pig, just listen to his lyrics. I guess money talks no matter how they earned it.

For the love of God, can Hollywoodlife stop with the Obama posts?! What’s sad is that our president is facing one of the worst economies ever and huge foreign issues and he’s out partying with celebrities. Obama is NOT a celebrity! He may think he is but he is actually the leader of this country and has many more important responsibilities than partying with half of hollywood and should start doing his job!

Can I just say how Dope that photo is of Bey, Jay and President Obama! Jay & Bey have really sealed the deal on being a put together, family first type married couple. Sometimes I don’t even remember their before but they make a beautiful after example.

If Kristen and Robert had that, we wouldn’t be here would we trolling why they couldn’t make it work. Rob, go get the real deal – Bey type lady dude.
