Beyoncé at Michelle Obama’s Birthday!
When the first lady turns 50 it’s kind of a big deal. When Michelle Obama turned 50 her birthday bash was a huge celebration with Beyoncé in the singers list.
The “pretty hurts” hit maker was one of the performers at Michelle’s birthday party. Beyoncé who is a good friend of the first lady has and performed at two presidential events in the past, jetted to Washington D.C. to sing a few of her biggest hits at the White House on Saturday night (18.01.14).
The 32-year-old star posted a series of pictures from the party on her Tumblr blog on Sunday (19.01.14), which showed her posing in a gold mini-dress and nude heels and another one while petting one of Michelle’s dogs.
John Legend also performed at the event, according to EOnline.com.
Other VIP guests included model Chrissy Teigen, RB star Mary J. Blige, fashion designer Michael Kors, celebrity chef Rachael Ray, singer Gladys Knight, entrepreneur Sheryl Sandberg and Oprah Winfrey’s best pal Gayle King.
‘The Avengers’ star Samuel L. Jackson told reporters on his way into the party: ‘I am looking forward to saying happy birthday to her, being able to celebrate this great milestone in her life.‘
‘I Can’t Describe’ hit maker Jennifer previously revealed she didn’t get Michelle a birthday present.
Asked how easy it was to pick out something special for Michelle, the 32-year-old star said: ‘You don’t. You just go and be there and show your support, that’s all you can do.’
President Barack Obama was mum about the party details in a previously published People interview, telling the magazine that “not even the NSA” knew what to expect. The United States’ commander-in-chief was just as vague with other reporters, saying, “It’s going to be a rolling birthday weekend.”
Michelle is said to have worn a red and black ensemble, and her daughters invited friends to the bash.
For some, however, the president’s remarks about his wife of 21 years were the highlight of the night. “It was really beautiful and really touching,” musician Herbie Hancock said. “He said something—his voice almost cracked like he was crying. It was just beautiful, a husband speaking about his wife.”
