Beyoncé and Michelle: BFFs?

Bey and Mrs. O are totes best friends, y'all. They joined forces for Michelle's Let's Move campaign. Michelle walked off stage after her speech at the DNC to the sounds of Bey's "Get Me Bodied" (which she also famously did the Dougie to). They even go on dinner dates! And Bey professed her love for Michelle in an open letter on her blog — which she recently read in a video released by the Obama campaign — writing, "Michelle Obama is the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman."
