First Lady Hugs Queen

Beyonce and Michelle Obama

On Saturday evening 60,000 people gathered in Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival, better known as “the free Beyoncé concert.” The next evening, a rare, breathtaking lunar event transfixed the entire city. What caused it? Maybe it was a coincidence, or maybe it was this hug.

Queen B introduced First Lady Michelle Obama at the end of her set, and the two beautiful badasses embraced each other to a roar of cheers. I’m not saying this otherworldly moment caused the super blood moon, but I’m also not saying it didn’t.
