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?

    I find it hard to believe that even Obama himself actually believes she is a good role model. He was probably just saying it out of gratitude for what she has done for his campaign... so the money will keep coming in. I'm sure Beyonce is not a terrible person. And she certainly has outward beauty and knows how to make money. But that to me does not make for a good role model. How can you over look the way she portrays herself on stage. No one would want their child emulating that kind of behavior. A good role model is someone who displays good character in all areas of their life.

    Facts are not hate-just so you know. FACTS on video and in print thru interviews are NOT HATE, they are facts, so they are nuetral. Too bad you are so blind to that truth,
  • wildcat Lanikai 2012/09/24 18:03:56
    why would you call the First Lady an American hating woman?
  • Lanikai wildcat 2012/09/24 18:18:55

    She grew up privileged in America, got a college degree with taxpayer money, got a law school placement with affirmative action, got a CUSHY job thru affirmative action, and got a raise because her hubby won for Illinois senate. She has had EVERY advantage in the world laid at her feet mostly at other peoples expense, and DARED to not be proud of this country until barky was elected????????? You figure out why no one likes her.
  • wildcat Lanikai 2012/09/24 18:22:39

    To me Aaliyah was the best singer role model there ever was because she was classy, very smart and had a beautiful personality. I liked the way she carried herself and I like the fact that she showed that you could be sexy without being half naked and stank. Aaliyah had a lot of class.

    Shes not the best role model
  • AskZilla 2012/09/22 03:24:28
    If you call gyrating your twat, grabbing and humping the male dancers on stage and wearing hoochie clothing --- 'good example' then go for it.
  • Lanikai AskZilla 2012/09/24 16:47:39
    I think he is getting ready to pimp his kids to hollywood.

    There is 57 Islamic states. Do you think he was thinking of them or it's just something ingrained in his head from the Indonesian days?
  • Bob 2012/09/22 01:35:52
    Look at what she wears. Would you want your daughter to wear that, even if she has as good a body? Look at the crowd she hangs with.Obama is so hung up on himself, he probably said it so he can stay in good with that crowd.
  • Kiki,Pixie,Worm 2012/09/22 01:08:36
    Not the best, but she is a good one.

    Between the year 1901 and 2011, there are at least 44 women in history who have been Nobel Laureates in sciences, in literature, in medicine, in peace and in economic science. Only one woman, Marie Curie, has been honoured twice, with the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics and the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. This means that 43 women in total have been awarded the Nobel Prize between 1901 and 2011. He could have picked one or several to be Sasha and Malia's role models instead of someone whose main talent is is shaking or showing her booties and making money as well as married to an ex-con, Jay Z. Classy, huh?

  • mae 2012/09/21 22:59:01
    If my choice Had to come from a long list of celebrities, then Beyonce' wouldn't look so bad...but celebrities should not be role models for kids--they just get themselves into too much hot water and media frenzies.

    I don't know about the best role model, but she's not a bad one. You NEVER here anything bad about her. She's beautiful, poised, and successful. Just because she's not a prude doesn't mean she's a bad role model.
  • Dan 2012/09/21 19:24:12
    No, but he's probably thinking of how many dumbies she can influence. Or pay to his "re-election" funds.

    I live here in Houston, the birth home of Beyonce. For many years this city kissed her family and her a$$es. We have heard just how much she has done in her life and of her successes, but the truth is never stated.

    Beyonce is like Oprah, she does nothing unless it bring her name out in a positive light. If no cover or no mentions of her charity, she does not do it. Beyonce and her family are not even in the top ten charitable families in Houston Texas.

    Now, if you have read my posts in the passed. It is no secret that I grew up in a wealthy family, but no matter the wealth. What baby need a 12,000 square feet nursery. And why would anyone have to Trade Mark their babies spelling of their name.
  • Smokey 2012/09/21 18:40:37
    Shouldn't he have mentioned their mother as a role model?
  • S123 Smokey 2012/09/21 18:52:44
    He didn't say she's the best role model, he said she couldn't be a better role model.
  • Smokey S123 2012/09/21 19:02:52
    I think the word "role model" is over used. Is Bianca successful, of course she is. But me personally, I wouldn't call her a role model.
