Beyonce Doesn’t Usually Email You, But She Did Today. Did You Get It?

Beyonce and Jay-Z are working overtime on their social responsibility, err, campaigning for President Obama. After we heard the Carters were throwing a rather exclusive fundraiser for the Commander-in-Chief at $40,000 a plate, Queen Bey did something rather uncharacteristic today. She emailed Obama supporters with a special contest offer to be a part of the big night.

Anyone who’s hardcore #TeamObama is used to getting emails from the president, Michelle Obama, and other leaders of the democratic party but today supporters got a unique message from Bey Bey which read:

I usually don’t email you — but I have an amazing invitation I have to share.

Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!

Until midnight tonight, if you pitch in $25 or whatever you can, you’ll be automatically entered to be flown out to join us.

I’ve had the honor of meeting President Obama and the First Lady a few times — and believe me — it’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss.

Don’t worry about the airfare and hotel, it’s taken care of. And you can bring a guest.

But the countdown is on — this opportunity ends at midnight:

Can’t wait to meet you!



Excuse me one minute while I go drop my $25 in the bucket.

But seriously, for us commoners who are a few thousand short of affording a spot at this swanky event built for 100, how cool would it be to be amongst this crowd for one night? And, you know, help President Obama get re-elected. Get to clicking New Yorkers, the event is only a couple of weeks away!

  • Thought it was spam. Deleted it. 🙁

  • baddvixentype

    I got that email yesterday. Im in that drawing *fingers crossed*

  • Cara

    Yes, I received an email, but not from Beyonce. It was actually from President Obama’s PR Team. -___-

  • Wow

    Jay and Bey are good for getting my dance on, but something bothers me about them being lumped in the same eschelon as the Prez and the First Lady. I mean come one minute they are walking on stage grabbing crotches and calling themselves N words and the next they are hosting high faluting $40k a plate charity dinners for the Commander In Chief. Something about that just feels wrong.

    • Guest

      Other celebs have hosted dinners for the POTUS. Why is it such a problem when Bey and Jay do it?

  • Lila

    You people are unbelievable. She’s offering someone an amazing opportunity and you do is trash her? I can accept the fact that you don’t like her but stop spewing your hatred everywhere.

    • lila

      *all you do

      Its not hate. Prior to Obama’s elections you never heard of Bey and absolutely not Jay being so involved in whats going on in the world. Its is a STATUS thing. $25 when they make millions. I agree with the above, Ill spend that money to do something useful with my family or donate the $$ to a LOCAL charity that can put it to use. Not a highly publicized charity that is so removed from reality that the people that need it don’t see a dime of it. And believe me because I volunteer for many no-profit organizations DAILY. They are asking for thousands in tickets in the guests that are already coming and they are asking for $25 dontation to go to his campaign that he already has celebrities busting door down for him. We, working class, have a hard times making ends meet. THE RIGHT THING FOR THEM TO HAVE DONE WAS TO HAVE PEOPLE ENTER THE DRAWING FOR FREE! This is a once in lifetime oppurtunity to meet the President and everyone in attendance. Hell, they already sucking us dry, what else do they want from us? Not interested I dont trust any of them as far as I can see them. Politics is always just that POLITICS. its just that OBAMA is the lesser of the two EVILS. We are in trouble no matter who gets elected but if Romney is elected this ship will sank. I put my vote on GOD he is the only one who can save ANY OF US.

    DANG!!! I JUST SPENT $25 BUCKS ON PIZZA HUT!! My gluttony stops me once again. Another reason to go on a diet…

    I received the letter this morning and I almost puked in my bed literally! A little disgusted by that. And please believe I am a fan of Jay’s and Bey’s however, some things just do not mix. Its was cool after he was elected because well hey he’s the President of the United States he can do whatever he wants. In my opinion Celebrities campaigning for him is a no no. So yes I was a bit unnerved when I received the email. Sorry again just my feelings that’s all. In addition, it gives the people that you are trying to receive votes for the impression that you are not maybe on the same page as they are. Now we all know no matter what our President does its going to be criticized and nothing he does to some people will ever be correct. For the most part those who support him know who/and what he has accomplished in the past four years however, sometimes to win “the people” you have to distance yourself from individuals who are considered “. Especially in an economy that is still very much struggling and not at all out of the woods.

  • FromUR2UB

    Why, yes. I did get it. Would love to go hob-nobbing and all that there stuff!

  • Just saying!!

    I love this but could y’all stop saying Jay and Bey’s campaigning for Obama is their effort to be socially responsible. They have always tried to associate themselves with the Obamas as a sign of status and power….to make them more elite than the average hip hop couple lol.

    • eyeconic1

      CHURCH…PREACH…prior to Obama’s election (1st adn 2nd) when have you heard Bey or Jay so involved in what matters to common folk?

  • L-Boogie

    I would go.

  • Wouldnt attend if my life depended on it, I will take my $25 and spend some quality time with my children……….after i get off from work, the 1% can dine all they want, should have told her husband to keep his mouth shut, until after the election.


    Talk about 1%………

    • TRUTH IS

      Dislike/thumb down as you wish…she is throwing the scrumbs off the table to the dogs…smh

    • Tiny

      So what they’re the 1%? They earn their money. You should too instead of complaining.

  • Jenn

    I mean IDK come Bey…I love her and all but the emails and open letters w/the baby grammar, it’s just too much. Why don’t I believer her? I believe Kerry Washington at the DNC, even Scarlett Johanson but you Bey…*kanye shrug*

    • Jenn

      *come on Bey

    • mbareformed

      Re: “baby grammar” … I’m pretty sure she didn’t write this. Before having an email of this magnitude sent she had someone review and edit it. The reason the grammar is elementary is because her followers usually are on a middle school or below reading level. Let’s be honest…. the key to the game is being able to relate to your followers. That’s why Obama is sitting there singing on Apollo and endorsing “love=love”. It is what it is… Some people relate to Beyonce and some Michelle Obama. I for one would go to the dinner just to meet Michelle who is smart, successful, real and …. Well the list goes on.

      • NicPal

        “baby grammar” I love it and exactly.

      • NONEYA

        @6e7bc257890d8ec0e3c883c0c507a36c:disqus You do realize this is for folks over the age of 18 that can VOTE!!! You sound really stupid and Im not hardly a Beyonce fan!

        • mbareformed

          @NONEYA… you do realize that because you are over the age of 18 doesn’t mean you have above a middle school reading level. Clearly you seem to be unaware of the ongoing debate regarding education in America. “You sound really stupid”… please use your logical reasoning skills. Furthermore, I have nothing against Beyonce or Jay-Z. I listen to some of the music they make.

        • MLS2698

          LOL! She said middle school or below reading level. And yes, neither of those people can vote! LOL! When some people see Bey’s name in print, they get a brain fart.

          • MLS2698

            Well, the below levels can get someone to read to them, I guess. But most won’t out of shame.

          • mbareformed

            “you do realize that because you are over the age of 18 doesn’t mean you have above a middle school reading level.” There was no brain fart… if I must spell it out plainly we live in an America were STANS (followers) are highly uneducated. …but your lack of insight or reasoning regarding what I stated proves my point. The more simple and plain the language the easier it is for most people to understand.


    I got it today!
