Beyoncé is a modern day feminist, so in her eyes, there’s nothing women can’t do. That includes daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who she believes could grow up to be president if that’s what she wants to do. Her statements come as part of the Chime For Change campaign, a cause that aims to promote education, health and justice for women everywhere and that a lot of celebs have taken part in (see video above).
“I’m telling my daughter everyday, ‘You know you can be president. You know it’s possible.’
“I know she has no idea why I’m saying that, but at 1 years old I’m like, ‘You know you can be president’.”
Well, you can’t say Beyoncé doesn’t aim high. Speaking of the president, though, remember Bey & Jay-Z’s little jaunt to Cuba? Well, the actual president, Barack Obama, said he knew nothing about it and has more important things on his plate.
“I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip,” Obama told NBC’s Today. “My understanding is I think they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba.”
“This is not something the White House was involved in. We’ve got better things to do.”
