Even Famous People Got an Email From Beyonce on Thursday
Every American who's ever lent their email address to anything Obama campaign-related was scintillated to see the first lady of Roc-A-Fella's name pop in their inboxes Thursday morning. Yes, Beyonce invited pretty much the entire Democratic party to join her and Jay for dinner in an email that began, "I usually don't email you," (gasp!) "but I have an amazing invitation I have to share." She continued, "don't worry about the airfare and hotel -- it's taken care of." (Squee!). Then she asked her "friends" for a donation, which would win them the chance to have dinner with the president at a party hosted by Bey and Jay.
While we confess that we have not yet deleted the fundraising request from our inbox (it's true -- Beyonce, doesn't usually email us), we were relieved when Olivia Wilde tweeted what we knew in our hearts all along: "National collective sigh when Obama supporters realized Beyonce didn't actually email us out of the blue ivy to say hi #stillawesomethough."
