AceShowbiz - Michelle Obama is just like all of us. As a renowned fan of Beyonce Knowles, the former FLOTUS includes the songstress' hit tracks on her workout playlist. Michelle was recently seen working up a sweat with some friends while grooving to Bey's Jay-Z-assisted single "Drunk in Love".
The wife of Barack Obama was spotted dancing to the song during a private class at fitness guru Tracy Anderson's 59th Street studio on Monday, September 25. "They were dancing to 'Drunk in Love'," an insider told Page Six. "There were Secret Service agents in front of the gym, and one in front of the studio where [Obama] worked out."
Prior to this, Michelle revealed that she loved to listen to classic hip-hop music while working out. She said of her workout playlist, "A little Heavy D, 'We Got Our Own Thang'. 'Treat 'Em Right' by Chubb Rock. A little Chubb Rock, a little Heavy D. Yeah that's on my iPod. That's some of my get me going music." She also liked to mix in some new-school R&B stars like Beyonce and Willow Smith.
Michelle has been very vocal about her admiration towards Bey. In an interview with Stephen Colbert, she said of the diva, "She's a special person. She's a sweetheart. She's smart, creative. She's a great mother. She loves her family. She's just a low-key lady, so we have a lot in common in that way. Except I can't sing. I can't dance...not like Beyonce."
She further added that she wanted to talk about Bey all the time, even during a family dinner at the White House. "Malia will usually ask the serious question, 'Dad tell us about your day? What about that conversation about global warming?' " Michelle shared, before impersonating her husband, " 'That's a good question, let me answer that in three points.' One, then One A then One B. And Sasha and I are like 'ugh,' because Sasha and I just want to talk about our favorite song on 'Lemonade'."
