The Obamas are clearly fans of Beyonce - she performed the R&B classic “At Last” for President Obama and his wife on the night he was inaugurated in 2009 - and now the superstar has shown that the adoration is mutual, particularly for the First Lady.
In a post on her new Tumblr, Beyonce counted the ways Mrs. Obama inspires her, calling her "the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman."
"She is a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the FIRST LADY!!!!!," Bey continued. "No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope – she's humble, loving and sincere."
Beyonce also called the “Let’s Move!” spokeswoman a role model for her daughter, Blue Ivy.
"Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u do for us - I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to," she penned.
Of course, Beyonce’s personal-slash-professional history with the Obamas goes way back: in addition the Neighborhood Ball on inauguration night, she also sang at the White House State Dinner hosted by Mexico’s president Felipe Calderon that following year.
As far as Beyonce’s much-watched Tumblr (and Twitter) account goes, it's certainly made waves on the Web. Billboard reports the star is the biggest gainer on Billboard's Social 50 chart this week.
She's said to have jumped from 49 to 17, which the publication attributes to fans’ excitement over her recent social media activities.
