Michelle Obama Praises Beyoncé on ‘GMA’

Michelle Obama and Beyoncé

Beyoncé’s shows in Atlantic City over the weekend brought out many celebrities, but none more famous than Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia. During her appearance on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, the First Lady bestowed praise on the pop superstar.

“Anybody who’s got talent, I’m all for,” Obama told Robin Roberts. “But Beyoncé has just been a tremendous supporter of ‘Let’s Move!’ Without asking, she reformulated ['Get Me Bodied'] to do a flash mob for kids across this country.”

Beyoncé recorded “Move Your Body” for the First Lady’s “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” campaign to help fight childhood obesity.

“Beyoncé stepped up in a way that so many of our celebrities and athletes are stepping up on behalf of this issue, so I love her to death and was glad to be out there moving my body with her,” said Obama.

Earlier this month, the First Lady told PEOPLE that if she wasn’t in the White House, she would be the “Love on Top” singer. “If I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé,” she said. “I’d be some great singer.”

The feeling is mutual. In April, Beyoncé penned a handwritten letter to Obama on her website, thanking her for being a great role model.

    The First Lady and Prez will praise any celeb that they think will benefit his re-election campaign.

    @Nick, You obviously don’t recognize talent when you see it–a Romney supporter who will try and see anything to discredit the Obamas. Pitiful.

    Yall have to understand. Jayz is an Obama supporter (rightfully so) and puts MILLIONS into Obama campaign and in return, the First Lady promotes and “praises” every chance she gets. It’s all business.

    This country is going to hell in a handbasket. A “first lady” praising this, of all things? I don’t even consider her a “real first lady. Where are her morals, priorities, American values? Ghetto is as ghetto does. It is important to vote Romney this fall to stop this parade of ignorance. It has gone too far and if we continue to condone urban street trash, then our country will fall mercilessly

    I will never understand why people read a post about people they do not like and then comment. So much negativity about two women who are nothing but positive role models.

    I hate Kim Kardashian and will scroll right past a post about her. If you are not a fan of two of the most well-known, positive, empowering, talented, influential black women around, then do the same and SCROLL ON!!!
