First lady in A.C. for Beyoncé show

Posted: May 27, 2012

One of Beyoncé's biggest fans - the first lady of the United States - was in the audience for the singer's sold-out performance Saturday night at the new Revel in Atlantic City.

Michelle Obama, in a sleeveless green dress, and her daughters, Malia and Sasha, took their seats minutes before the 10 p.m. show started.

The singer and the first lady seem to have a mutual-admiration society. Last week, Obama told People magazine that if she could switch lives with a celebrity or world figure, she would be Beyoncé.

A little more than a month ago, Beyoncé published a handwritten letter on her website, thanking Obama for being such a positive role model to her baby daughter, Blue Ivy.

Although rumors that Obama was jetting to Atlantic City for the concert were rampant all day, publicists for the White House, the Revel, and Beyoncé were mum.

"I can tell you Gov. Christie will be here, if that helps," said a Revel spokeswoman.
