Barack Obama Thinks Beyoncé Is the Best Role Model for His Daughters: Do You?

Hip hop power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z recently hosted a fundraiser for Obama's re-election and raised more than $4 million for the president. During the event, Obama joked with Jay-Z saying "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 went on to continue singing Beyonce's praises claiming "Beyonce couldn't be a better role model for my girls." If that's not the ultimate confidence boost I don't know what is. Do you agree with the President? Is Beyonce one of the best role models for kids today?

    he means the best role model for himself to fantasize about when he goes to sleep and
    'make love' to Michelle.
  • Erok 2012/09/26 06:33:03
    Not really
  • Claybern 2012/09/25 22:20:04
    No way.

    One of them, yes.
  • Chocoboy 2012/09/25 14:04:54
    Yes because she is black :) just kidding ...
  • Royo 2012/09/25 01:06:32
    Their mom is just extremely judgemental, so I won't judge Barack's opinion.
  • Koatz 2012/09/24 15:38:21
    I don't know enough about Beyonce to say she isn't a role model. I mean, she did get married before having Blue-Ivy, and that in itself wins my support. I despise the unmerited glamor that stars receive when they have children out-of-wedlock.
    Lastly, I haven't seen any scandalous photos or porn-films of Beyonce. She isn't strung out on drugs, and until recently her parents were still married.

    Beyonce is a illuminati wanna be,and J~Z brought her into it. You can see in the half time show when she flashed it
  • Koatz isaiah.... 2013/03/18 00:20:10
    Does flashing a sign mean a person is an illuminati, whatever that means?
  • RoseyRhod 2012/09/24 14:13:22
    She isn't trashy, but she's way too materialistic. Fefe Dobson
    I like this gal, Fefe Dobson. She's a good example of an independent young woman. She's cool and is able to look sexy without coming off as slutty.

    I am sure he has a few others too! However, she is not a bad example of a woman of talent taking control of her life.

    How about Condelesa Rice.

    He is probably a closet Kardashian watcher.

    Wow. You might as well say Kim Kar-trashian is your role model and you want a mom like Kris Jenner that pimps you out. kris jenner funny meme
  • Koatz Alexis<3 2012/09/24 15:50:54
    It's remarkable that you would equate Beyonce to Kim. They're totally opposite!

    1. Kim can't sing. Beyonce can.
    2. Kim made a sex tape. When and where have you seen Beyonce exploit herself like that?
    3. Kim was raised by a single parent. Beyonce had the benefit of having both parents as she was growing up.
    4. Kim is famous for being famous. Besides her beauty, she's talentless. Beyonce earned her celebrity status and all of her awards by her phenomenal singing and not~too~shabby acting ability.
    5. Kim wanders from relationship to meaningless relationship, while Beyonce is in a thriving marriage.

    I'd be willing to bet that when Kim has a child, it will be illegitimate, while Beyonce has already shown millions of her female admirers the right way to bring a child into this world. In other words, within a stable family and marriage.
  • kate Koatz 2012/09/24 16:50:57
    i agree.....beyonce has indeed earned her fame and she's generally more decent than kim kardashian but what the hell is wrong with being a single parent and what does this have to do with all the above.??there are a lot of single parents out there who strive to provide for their children and do a great a job and are in fact wonderful parents and their children turn out to be nice,normal people!what you say is very insulting and pretentious!!if her mother had a nasty personality and turned her to this attention-seeking slut she could do it being married as well!!what century do you think you live in..???superficial people angry me so much.....
  • Koatz kate 2012/10/05 01:56:57
    What's wrong with a single parent? Well, they are single parents! Flip to an evening news program and watch who is featured as prime suspects or victims in murders. The offspring of single, never-been-married, divorced mothers/parents. You can, like most of America, close your eyes/ears to the truth, but that won't make it untrue.

    Do you think being a single-mother/parent is the best role model for a young girl? Hell NO!, of course not. Sure, there are children who manage to make it to adulthood unscathed by their less than ideal family settings, but that doesn't negate the fact that two-parent households provide a significantly better environment in which to live.

    Beyonce is a celebrity; she doesn't need to seek attention. I don't know her personally, so her personality is not a concern of mine. But, apparently, she is loved by her family and friends and ultimately, their opinions are the only ones that matter.

  • kate Koatz 2012/10/05 13:31:08

    I wouldn't believe she's a good role model even if pigs could fly planes and fly. She's got way too much bad attitude for me to believe that she'll be a wonderful role model. After listening to a number of songs and albums, I wouldn't believe it for the life of me.
  • Osaka 2012/09/24 00:45:24
    I'm guessing he says that because she's a celebrity married to a rich record producer?

    Don't get me wrong, I love Beyonce & Jay-z and they are cute together and seemingly nearly perfect. Glad to see that their relationship last.

    You forgot successful, smart, and married. There's nothing wrong with making oneself look better. Most people do it every day when they take a shower, comb their hair, brush their teeth, etc... Beyonce took it to the next level!

    Total Role Model material Beyonce wet
  • kate 2012/09/23 16:38:06
    is she a good role model because she's a black successfull woman or sth?well no offence but there are better artists than beyonce out there and rumor has it she doen't have the best personality...............

    alicia keys for example
    she's clever,nice,writes her own songs,plays the piano,does charity work
    that's more of a role model...... alicia keys

    but is being rich and famous what makes you a role model?

    Rush Limbaugh has dubbed Barack Obama "President Kardashian." When you read stuff like this it makes sense. Barack Obama is a celebrity first and he does a lot of hob knobbing with the Hollywood crowd. It stands to reason he would say this. He seems very shallow, and on the surface Beyonce would a great role model, because she's rich and successful.
