Two of the most famous women in the world may have joined forces last week if reports that Hillary Clinton visited Beyonce on the set of her music video are to be believed.
Sources said the Democratic presidential candidate paid Bey a surprise visit on the set of her video in Los Angeles, adding that the singer is planning to drop a new album in April, US Weekly reports.
Beyonce supported Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential runs, but was spotted at a Clinton fundraiser in New York last May.
The Clinton camp has already denied the magazine’s claims, according to CNN political producer Dan Merica.
Clinton was in fact in Hollywood on March 24, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and hosting a panel with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti at the University of Southern California.
And a visit with Beyonce would hardly be a surprise – as Clinton has publicly made it clear in the past she is a card-carrying member of the BeyHive.
During an Iowa town hall in December, Clinton was asked: ‘If you could choose, would you rather be the president or Beyonce?’
Clinton joked that nobody would pay to watch her sing or dance, even in her younger days, before she praised the superstar.
You see her on TV, it’s impressive,’ she said. ‘You see her in person, you’re just stunned. Thinking like, how does she do that? Really. I mean, she’s singing, she’s up and down.’
‘She’s just amazing.’
‘I want to be as good a president as Beyonce is a performer.’
If rumors of the visit are revealed to be true, it would hardly be Clinton’s first foray into reaching out to popular women in pop culture as she aims for the youth vote.
Just last week Clinton appeared in an episode of Broad City. The Comedy Central show is popular with millennials, a contingent of voters who have highly publicized their support for Bernie Sanders.
