Barack Obama made his wife Michelle swoon when he strolled on stage carrying a bouquet of flowers to surprise her during the former first lady’s Washington DC Becoming book tour stop on Saturday.
The crowd went crazy too when the our forever President popped on stage like the rockstar he is to celebrate our forever First Lady.
“This is like — you know when Jay-Z comes out during the Beyoncé concert?” the former president said, according to CNN. “Like, ‘Crazy in Love’?”
Obama’s still got it!
“It’s the same thing. It’s just a little sample to enhance the concert,” said the 57-year-old. The Obamas are big Jay and Bey fans and even attended their On the Run Tour II concert together back in July. And let’s not forget Beyonce had the pleasure of performing at both of the former President’s inaugurations.
The conversation with Michelle was hosted by former top Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Jarrett asked Obama about the first time he met Michelle: “First of all, she’s really tall, and most of it was legs.”
“There are children here,” the former first lady said joking.
“I’m just saying … it was impressive,” he reportedly said. “You know when you meet somebody and you feel like they get it?”
