The former First Lady was full of praise for Beyoncé’s Netflix film.
Beyoncé’s film Homecoming recently dropped on Netflix, and the concert film has been receiving rave reviews ever since. Honestly, at time of writing it has a 100% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and 92% audience satisfaction.
And one of the fans of the film was the former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama. Posting a video on Twitter, she spoke directly to the global superstar.
“Hey queen!” she said. “Girl, you have done it again. Constantly raising the bar for us all, and doing it flawlessly. I’d say I’m surprised, but I know who you are. I’ve seen it up close and personal.
“Girl, you make me so proud, and I love you.”
She then praised Beyoncé for the diversity the film promotes, saying: “I also love that your new Netflix film, Homecoming, is informed by the black leaders, thinkers and poets who’ve paved the way for folks like us.
“I love that it’s both a celebration and a call to action. And I love that you’re using this film to inspire the next generation of history makers and record breaker who’ll run the world in the years ahead.
“So to you, my dear friend, I just want to say: Keep telling the truth. Because you can do it in a way that no one else can.”
