'Hey Queen!': Michelle Obama's Message to Beyoncé Is Perfection


There's a lot of ugliness in today's news (President Trump, Attorney General Barr, etc.), but there was a glimmer of beauty when Michelle Obama released a lovely video honoring Beyoncé's Homecoming.

The former First Lady, long a fan of Beyoncé, was reacting to the pop superstar's new concert film, which chronicles her historic performance at Coachella. Not only was Beyoncé the first African-American woman to headline the nation's biggest music festival, but she made her show a statement, honoring the traditions of America's historically Black universities and colleges.

"Hey Queen!," Obama said at the start of her heartfelt video, before reveling in the historic Black leaders, thinkers, and poets that Beyoncé honored in Homecoming; people who Obama says paved the way for "folks like us."
