Beyonce Writes Michelle Obama A Beautiful Letter Of Appreciation

| Filed under: BeyonceInspirationBarack ObamaMichelle Obama

Beyonce First Lady letter

Beyonce is a proud supporter of Barack Obama, but we have a feeling it has A LOT to do with his wife, Michelle.

The star posted a beautiful handwritten letter addressed to the First Lady on her website, in which she praises Michelle for being "the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman."

We couldn't agree more!

We'd love to list all of the characteristics we love about Mrs. Obama, but Beyonce takes care of that for us. As she continues her letter of gratitude, the Single Ladies singer calls Michelle "humble, loving, and sincere."

Aww! What a nice gesture!

Read the letter in its entirety … AFTER THE JUMP!

Michelle,

Is the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman. She's a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the FIRST LADY!!!!

No matter the pressure and the stress of being under the microscope — she's humble, loving, and sincere.

She builds and nurtures her family, while looking out for so many millions in so many ways.

Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that you 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.

Love,

Beyonce

    I have a feeling it has to do with him being black.

    Of course this has to do with them both being black but it's still nice. I like the direction Beyonce is going. Look at her website. She is trying to show appreciation for other people. And not being a stuck-up bitch anymore.

    HUMBLE ???????
    Is Beyonce on crack?
    Michelle Obama is the most arrogant woman who has ever resided in the White House, She is totally out of touch, how could anyone have a staff of 28 ?
    She has spent more time on vacation than any other First lady ever, and her vacations always include her staff, her extended family,aunts, cousins, etc
    This is the woman who when on a vacation in Europe, insisted that they close off a public beach, so her and her entourage would not be gawked at
    Very HUMBLE indeed

    How many letters of appreciation has Beyonce written to strong, graceful, intelligent and humble WHITE women? WTF? First they bitch that people are prejudiced against them because they're black. Then they praise only those of their own race. And they wonder why so many of us get sick of the double standard and the all-too-convenient race card played far too often? African American my ASS. They're black, just as I'm white. I don't see them calling me European American or some other ridiculous, conscience-salving label. Michelle Obama is a WOMAN, and that hypocrite Beyonce should STFU about "African American" already. As for that woman, Michelle Obama, she is arrogant, cold, and self-absorbed. That she's the first lady has nothing to do with what SHE has accomplished; if I could fire her, I would. Beyonce is a hypocritical asshole and I will never buy anything else she sells. Maybe she can pen a letter about my wonderful white self, eh?

    You jealous white hoes could STFU! They are STRONG BLACK WOMEN and you bitches are scared! Y'all never had a WHITE woman as fine and talented as Beyonce and you never had a WHTIE FIRST LADY that was fine, intelligent, stylish as Michelle O! So haters, HATE! Y'all won't continue to bring down black women as HIGH as the ones!

    Re: Chris – Enjoy it while it lasts. Time is running out. Tick-tock!

    Yes, I'm sure that inarticulate Beyonce wrote that all by her idiot self.
    And for the last fucking time: There is no such thing as "African American"!!!!!!!! It is a nonsense term. The woman is black.
    Charlise Theron (spelling?) is truly African American… black people are not (unless they were at one time an African citizen and now have become an American).



  10. 10

    I saw the original written letter. HGotta say.. Beyaaawwnce aint that much of an intellect. You can tell she never passed high school. Geeez. Writes like a 10yr old.



  11. 11

    some of yall need to go back to school.. what are yall mad for ? You all had the same oppurtunity to do what both of these ladies have done , but no you wanna sit on the internet and hate on "AFRICAN AMERICANS"that are doing good. we can be black people ..to me that sounds a hell of a lot better than an ignorant as white person. Stupid ass people need to get a life and some buisness about your selfs or maybe go back to school and pay more attention in History you fucking loser cause WE (African Americans) ARE WINNING RIGHT NOW while yall folding cause your to busy worried about us.. Play Catch up BITCHES!!



  12. 12

    Michelle Obama is doing a whole lot better than any other First Lady.. And Beyonce is the best thing that happened to R&B Music.. So if she wants to look up to the First lady Who just happens to be a "African American" why in the hell are yall so mad about… Dumb ass people.. Oh Now i see why yall are Mad.. Cause Yall dont have anything else to do but sit around and be mad instead of going out and making a difference too OR is it because why all the White people going to REHAB the black people are getting money and really making a difference?

    Re: MRS independent
    I can understand your anger at idiot racists and their idiot digs at Mrs Obama and the Pres., etc…
    But as for the "African American" statement I made: You're not African. Or are you originally from Africa? YOU, not your ancestors. You're American and I presume you are black.
    I'm white and you're black. It's very simple. I'm not "European American"… I'm just white and black folks are just black.
    Nothing racist about it.

    Re: MRS independent – How can you tell someone to go back to school when your writing is that elementary? If we need to pay attention in history, you might want to pay extra attention in English/Grammar. Get off your high horse and stop being hypocritical. Just saying…



  15. 15

    Re: Jill – Im not on a high horse and im far from hypocritical.. I understand eveybody is entitled to thier own opinions but what some of ya'll said are just plain stupid and racist. Is that better Grammer for you ?



  16. 16

    Re: Jayyyy – I understand where you are coming from with the whole African American thing!



  17. 17

    I am white… and will tell you I respect both Boyonce and the First Lady. I think any conflict gets popularized, desperate and ugly before it is recognized as a backwards and illogical problem. Look at Christianity taking hits because of people that subscribe to juding in the name of Christianity, look at people judging Ms O & Pres for mainstreaming their views. Reality? The idiot pundits are just that, desperate idiot pundits. Our strenght is in our truth, and advocacy. I do my part. I hope good common sense people out there do the same.



  18. 18

    Why does she feel the need to post the letter on her website. I can't stand either one of them. They both seem like closeted bitches.



  19. 19

    After reading these comments I'm starting to think racism is on the rise instead of declining…So sad!



  20. 20

    I love it! Thank you Beyonce.

    You left out a whole bunch of comments from the orginal letter. :)

    Re: MRS independent – That's why 85% of the prisons in the US are filled with Black Men. And Farrakhan and The Black Panthers are Anti- White haters. And Obama is connected to both of them. Not good for a so called president. That is suppose to be representing all of the people. And as far as us Whites sitting around on the internet you don't seem to be doing such a bad job yourself being a HATER.

    On the issue of criticizing Michelle Obama for being a snobby, arrogant, money spending, self-agrandizing woman… let's also reflect on all the ways she uses the uniqueness of her circumstance (being the first generation of college attendees in her family) to ensure that they enjoy the life she has worked hard to get. Let's also remember that before she was first lady… she worked as a lawyer first, and then a hospital administrator atone of the best hospitals in the country. Being a First Lady is a LOSS she took to support her husband… but she has undoubtedly held her own as an intelligent and influential women. If she never became first lady, she would still be a role model to many young women because she has maintained career, family and her husbands political aspirations… while ensuring that as she climbs, she is also reaching to blaze a trail for those behind her.

    Its great and wonderful to have opinions… but if you are making JUDGEMENTS and postulating them as truths… be careful.

    Good day!

    Re: La Garse

    First I think we should do a little history lesson:

    1. British CHOSE to come to America to carve a NEW identity for themselves and after the Boston Tea Party wanted absolutely nothing to do with any European identity. European immigrants (Polish, Irish, Italian, etc.) that followed were less pro- American but also wanted American freedoms so they assimilated by changing their names, dying their hair, losing their accents in order to fit in. Wonderful.

    Re: Amma

    2. Africans were FORCED to come here and while here were never quite 'american enough' until 1960 when they were finally given 'equal rights and protection'… at least under the law. Thats FOUR HUNDRED years of slavery, repression, segregation and intolerance before we could even KIND of get to be American. So lets consider the labels of black vs. African American. There is a bit of a dichotomy… they are at once estranged from Africa and not African enough to be African and at odds with an extractive and abuse American identity and therefore (on some levels) not American enough to be American.

    But lets forget history… lets start all over from today because history is yesterday and today is a new day, right?

    … regarding Beyonce's praise to Michelle as a black women… see my comment below. I think I get that your frustrated that you will never quite EMPATHIZE with the plight of being the other in a country built for you but if you have nothing intelligent to say about it… then keep your comments for beers with your bff's. mkthxbye!

Consider what it feels like to be torn from your mother for centuries, acknowledging that you are related but knowing that the only mother you have ever known is America… and she beats you and she torments you and she pretends she loves you sometimes. Plus she feeds you… and you know what they say about biting that hand… plus your old mother doesnt recognize you anymore… its difficult. so don't comment unless you understand.

    Re: Amma A

    That should say, 'If she never became first lady, she would still be a role model to many young women, she just would not have the visibility she has now…'
