LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- President Obama is passing on the knowledge he’s gained from fatherhood with his new-parent pals, Beyonce and Jay-Z.
“We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends. We talk about the kids,” the President told Cleveland’s Z107.9 radio in an interview this week of his friendship with the power couple, who became parents to daughter Blue Ivy in January. “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyonce out [with Blue] and not leaving it all to mom and the mother-in-law.”
And the President is sure Beyonce will be an excellent mom, as she’s great with his and Michelle’s two daughters, Malia, 14, and 11-year-old Sasha.
“Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls – the girls are big Beyonce fans,” he said. “So, they’re great friends.”
Mr. Obama is also keeping Jay-Z’s tunes on his iPod while he campaigns for the November 6 election, but said he prefers Hova’s “My First Song” over “99 Problems.”
“‘My First Song’ – it keeps me steady,” he shared. “It’s a great song.”
