Icon Salutes Icon: Beyoncé Pens Open Letter To Michelle Obama Via Tumblr

If you ask women of any age who they look up to for inspiration, chances are First Lady Michelle Obama and Beyoncé will rank somewhere on the list. But even world stage icons have role models, just like the rest of us. Beyoncé took to her brand new Tumblr to pen a letter to Michelle Obama, praising her for being such a wonderful wife, mother, professional, and First Lady.  The admiration is surely mutual. The two joined forces for the First Lady’s “Let’s Move!” Campaign, that fostered the importance of exercise and healthy eating habits for children across the country.

Bey has been quite candid since the birth of her first child, Blue Ivy, and her Tumblr feels like her personal journey into womanhood. She’s revealing one grounded multifaceted woman. The letter is another very sweet moment for Honey Bey.

    Oh GOD…. Attention-sloring at it’s best. Is she bored, or something??? Sheesh.

    • says:

       Yeah… Extreme f a m e thirst! Given her and Michelle’s working relationship Beyonce could have sent that privately. This is nothing more than an attempt to show Kim and Kanye that neither one of them are on her level.

      But that’s something we all knew…

      • says:

        Yeah, she could have. And, on a side note, not everyone who speaks out against looking at/ hearing about Beyonce/ Jay-Z/ Blue Ivy and anyone else Beyonce-related all the time is hating on her. We’re just SICK OF LOOKING AT HER behind. There is a such thing as over-exposure. Her so-called intimate moments look hella staged. Or, maybe she’s just so freakin’ over-exposed that everything she does looks staged, even when she’s not trying or meaning for it to be. I believe she has a beautiful voice and is very talented, I’ve thought so since 1997. As time goes on, however, I’ve started to believe she’s become a complete megalomaniac. Every black woman in America (and beyond) is proud of Michelle Obama. Does it mean more coming from Beyonce?

  2. says:

    I think that’s nice of her. Her new website is actually very good. 

  3. says:

    Beyonce is getting on my nerves.  She’s needs to just STOP.  This letter has no meaning.  It wasn’t given directly to Michele Obama or even sent to her certified mail as a personal heartfealt endearment.  Just another public notice saying, “hey everybody in the whole world, look it’s me Beyonce writing a letter to Michele Obama.  Look at me.  I just want to make sure you know about it.”  That letter holds about as much importance as a bag of stale chips.

  4. says:

    On a A section of Bey’s website she writes what inspires her(BeyInspired). She also wrote a letter to Sade but no one put that on their websites. The First Lady inspires me too. I don’t see the probolem.

  5. says:

    This is what I do not get…at first so many people were hating on her because she was too private and now people are hating on her because she has finally began to open up and let us into her space.  I just do not understand it.  If you do not like or care for Bey then stop reading  and commenting but apparently some people can’t resist what is being said about her.

    GO BEY…to one native Houstonian from another one!  Continue to do you Bey and I wish you much success!

      She was never private. Private people are never seen constantly smiling for the paps’ millions of cameras, every. single. day. Just because she used the word ‘private’ doesn’t mean she actual is or ever was.

      Really not trying to be rude, but does that help with your confusion?

      • says:

        True, she was never private; she relishes in the attention; rather, she needs it to breathe. That is why she is opening up more now, and getting online. Interest in her has waned considerably, in the media and the streets, and she is severely panicked.

      • says:

         I think she is…with her personal life. Smiling for the cameras has nothing to do with being private…..if the paps are all up in your face, what are you suppose to do? Snap off or smile? I would choose to smile.

    • says:

      She is not private. Anybody who can show all their goodies on stage is not private. Please wake up to the bs.

  6. says:

    One other thing, apparently she is doing this for her fans and not people who do not care for her…juz sayin…

  7. says:

    Great job Bey….I love you and Mrs. Obama!!!!

  8. says:

    If Hov has Obama on text why is Bey putting this letter on her website? If she truly wanted to express her “sincere” feelings why not reach out to the first lady in a private manor?

  9. says:

    If Hov has the POTUS on text why is his wife penning an open letter via her website to Michelle? If she truly wanted express her sincere feelings why not do it in a private manner?

  10. says:

    This girl sounds really bored and lonely.

  11. says:

    My mom, granny & sisters are my ICONS women that I admire and love

  12. says:

    I consign that..Michelle is a good role model to all young ambitious black girls…just saying as a father with high hopes for his daughter

  13. says:

    She’s posted plenty of open letters to a various amount of artists, but she’s attention hungry for posting about the FLOTUS. Guess I’m one too huh?

    I love that she did this, she’s standing for something other than ridiculous reality shows and unnecessary drama to gain attention. We all of the first lady, why is it a crime for her to show that?

    This girl really cannot win. She’s an icon and such a musical talent and still people find any reason to hate her. She’s done nothing to you; stop hating just for the sake of hating.

    And for the love of God, PLEASE stop commenting on posts about her. If you really hated her, you wouldn’t feed into the media about her now would you?

    Be*yawn*ce ( I just had to get in on the whole..Bey______fill in the blank thing she has going on)  I wanna see the closed letter that she would write to Idris Elba. Ok, ok…I guess I’m getting Bey*side* myself.

  15. says:

    OMG..will this attention s l o r e just quit already. She needs to go back to school, you are trying to pen a letter to the first lady and using text speak? Really? My goodness this child is ignorant and needs to graduate from high school already. 

  16. says:

    Love it! Beyonce also wrote an open letter to singer SADE. 

  17. says:

    I admire Beyonce because she is a woman of action instead of just sating on
    her behind talking about people. She took the time to get married and then to
    have a baby.  ” WHEN YOU STAND FOR NOTHING, YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING! “

  18. says:

    YEP, ANOTHER ACT AT SEEKING ATTENTION, N THAT IS THE FIRST LADY, YOU DON’T JUST SCRIBBLE SOME BS ON A PIECE OF PAPER N SAY IT IS A LETTER, SHE SHOULD HAVE ADDRESSED THE LETTER IN A PROFFESIONAL MANNER , WOW IT IS MRS. MICHELE OBAMA NOT YOUR ASSISTANT, IM JUST SAYING!!!!!!!!!!

  19. says:

  20. says:

    I JUST THINK SHE HOULD HAVE SHOWN A LIL MORE RESPECT!!!!!
