President Barack Obama

Celebrities Bid Farewell to President Obama

President Barack Obama wowed supporters on Tuesday (Jan. 10), as he delivered his farewell address in Chicago. Capping off an eight-year run as the nation’s leader, POTUS received plenty of love from fans and stars alike.

Much like he’s done throughout his presidency, Obama highlighted music at the event. Ahead of his speech, a humbled BJ the Chicago Kid sang the national anthem.

“Thank you to President Obama, and his entire administration for allowing me to be apart of such a historic moment,” BJ wrote. “I am honored, and beyond grateful.”

The love poured in from stars like G-Eazy to icons like Madonna. “Good-bye Mr. President,” wrote Madge. “There will never be another one like you! Barack Obama you are a King amongst Men.”

Not all the love was well received. Drake posted a meme of President Obama with his own haircut and beard, prompting some ire. Despite the criticism his post garnered, his intention seemed to be positive.

“As a Canadian that calls America home for part of the year I will always carry your words and the memory of your time in office with me as inspiration,” he wrote. “Big up yaself O.”

History has been made. #farewell
