Beyonce and Jay-Z Host a Fundraiser for President Obama

President Obama recently enjoyed an A-list fundraising event hosted by power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z at the 40/40 club in Manhattan yesterday.

The exclusive fundraiser for Obama's re-election campaign, included champagne, sliders and a speech from Beyonce according to reports. They reportedly raised $4 million.

Oh yeah, and seats went for $40,000!!

"I can't tell you how proud we are to host tonight's event with President Obama," Beyonce said. "We believe in his vision."

Obama compared Beyonce to his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, and he cracked a joke about him and Jay-Z coming in second to their wives.

"We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we've got a little bond there. It's hard but it's OK," Obama said.

Obama thanked Beyonce and Jay-Z for their friendship and also joked that Michelle and their daughters were upset they couldn't be present at the event.

He added, "Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls."
