R&B star Beyonce is thrilled after the wife of U.S. president Barack Obama hailed her as the perfect role model for the couple's two daughters.
The singer was handed the honour of performing at Obama's inauguration ball in January (09) and admits his wife, Michelle, approached her before the event to thank her for setting such a good example to their two children, Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.
And Beyonce was delighted to have made such an impact on America's First family.
She says, "She (Michelle Obama) told me that she was very happy that her children had an artist like myself - and I don't even feel right saying this - she said she was happy they look up to me."
