Jay-Z, Beyonce upstage the Prez


WHO WAS THE REAL HEADLINER?
Leave it to the N.Y. Post to put Obama’s second inaugural in perspective. The lead story in this morning’s online edition, headlined “Barack who!? Pols fawn over Beyoncé, Jay-Z at inaugural,” begins, “Washington’s power brokers were star struck yesterday—not by the president or first lady but by the entertainment world’s first couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Fawning politicians scrambled for their cellphones to snap photos of the sexy siren and her hip-hop-mogul hubby at President Obama’s inauguration. It was as if Obama was playing second fiddle at his own party.” Other prurient pearls from the piece: “When Beyoncé walked to the front to sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner,' Vice President Joe Biden gave her an appreciative look up and down. Behind Biden, ex-President Bill Clinton craned his neck to get a better look at her… American Idol alumnus Todrick Hall posted, ‘How nice of Obama to show up to the Beyoncé concert.’” (1/22a)
