Some of us are still struggling to understand the friendship that exists between President Obama and the Carter family. Whatever the nature of their relationship, we can certainly understand how both parties benefit from having each other in their respective corners. The president gets the backing (and financial contributions, $4 million just last month to be exact) of some of the biggest stars in the music industry and Bey and Jay get to expand their empire by kicking it with the president all the time.
At a radio station in Cleveland, Ohio, the president continued to speak about the budding friendship with Jay-Z and Beyoncé by sharing the fatherly advice he gave to the rapper/mogul when Blue Ivy was born.
“I’ve gotten to know these guys over the first several years. They’re good people. Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. So they’re good friends. We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends.”
“I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyonce out [with the baby], and not leaving it all with Beyonce and the mother-in-law.”
