Beyoncé and Jay-Z Attend Obama’s Inauguration

Jay-Z and Beyoncé

Four years ago, Beyoncé performed “At Last” as Barack and Michelle Obama took their first dance as President and First Lady of the United States. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the 31-year-old singer was invited back and asked to sing the National Anthem during the president’s second inauguration ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Prior to her patriotic performance, Bey and husband Jay-Z made an elegant entrance at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol. Hip-hop’s First Couple beamed with pride as they walked arm in arm in all black (Bey looked gorgeous in a floor-length Emilio Pucci gown, 80-carat emerald earrings, and a 50-carat emerald ring by Lorraine Schwartz).

They greeted the First Family and even asked someone to snap a photo of them on an iPhone while overlooking the National Mall.

    They are a bogus online media retailer headquartered in North Carolina created by a man named Douglas Chen.

    I can’t believe they paid her $60M of taxpayers to have her sing. It’s a sad day. Can’t wait until 2016. New president.

    @Tami D, which is 31 w/ a young child, husband AND successful career. Based on your picture, I would say you are 35 to 38. Am I right? Either way, you’re too damn old to be hating!

    @alisiasahomewrecka , since there were three singers, if beyonce was paid don’t you think others will be paid? I think you shld refrain from spreading rumours that are not true. in this kind of occasion, its always an honour for any singer. Even if you the almighty Aretha Franklin

    Aliciasahomewrecka Reply:

    @teepy, yes they were paid too. This is not a rumor. It’s a fact. Beyonce got paid the most. It’s despicable.
