The "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" songbird published a hand-written mash note to the First Lady on her Tumblr page (via Politico) recently, calling Obama "the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman.
"She is a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the FIRST LADY!!!!!," Beyonce's gush-fest continued. "No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope - she's humble, loving and sincere."
The singer wrapped up the missive by calling Obama a role model for her daughter, Blue Ivy.
"Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u 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."
