Michelle Obama on Beyonce: “She’s So Real”

While Beyoncé takes her fair share of criticism from fans and legends alike, she’s got at least one important lady in her corner—the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

In a cover story on Mrs. Jay-Z in Ebony magazine this month, Obama unleashes praise on the singer and how humbled she was by B’s inaugural performance.

“Beyoncé is an incredible young woman. Barack and I have met her on a few occasions, and it was a great honor to hear her sing ‘At Last’ so beautifully at the inauguration,” Obama said.

“She is so talented and so real, and we just love her.”

So does Jay-Z, aside from the occasional mess his wife leaves around.

“I’m a little messy,” Beyoncé tells the mag, “I think that is the most difficult thing for him. He’s very, very organized.”
