US President Barrack Obama has revealed that he chats with his celebrity friend Jay-Z about being a father and even offered parenting advice to the rapper and his megastar wife Beyonce.
In a recent radio interview President Obama said, “They’ve got a new daughter. I made sure Jay-Z was helping out and not leaving it all to mom and the mother-in-law.”
And it seems that Jay-Z must have appreciated the pearls of wisdom – he appeared in Obama's latest campaign video on October 16 to voice his support for the Democrat candidate, who is up for re-election on November 6.
Jay-Z and Bey have been adamant supporters of The Obamas for years now and even hosted a $40,000-per-ticket fundraiser at the rapper's 40/40 Club to raise $4m for the President's re-election campaign.
Obama voiced his appreciation for their friendship saying in the same interview, “I've gotten to know these guys over the last several years… They're good people. Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. They're good friends. They really are down-to-earth folks. And we talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends.”
