The singer wrote a public thank-you letter to her bestie: "Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that you do for us. I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to."

Mrs. Obama tweeted, "@Beyonce Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. --mo" [SIC] Bey must refer to her best friend as "Mo".

Some people don't like the friendship. A group of Christian moms were anxious over their friendship because of the performer's revealing costumes and sexy hip shaking moves.

People often criticize the Obamas for rubbing elbows with celebrities. They believe the first family should just focus on world affairs. Sometimes powerful friends like Michelle Obama and Beyonce can attract powerful haters in the world.
