Beyonce announces her support for Barack Obama

    Wikipedia has a huge list of people from the entertainment industry who are endorsing Barack Obama’s bid for president. Unsurprisingly, George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Michael Stipe, and Sarah Jessica Parker are all on the list. But Obama has even inspired Nicole Richie and noise rockers Lightning Bolt to find some common ground, as both have expressed their support for the Democratic presidential nominee.

    Beyonce, who was recently pictured wearing an Obama t-shirt,  has also vocalized her support. “I’m really proud,” she says. “I think we’re making a lot of progress. It’s an exciting time for my generation, regardless of whether you’re African-American or not. The level of excitement, I’ve never seen anything like it. We all feel part of our country now." Obama claimed to have Beyonce and Jay-Z tracks on his iPod when interviewed last year.  [Angryape]
