Music star Beyoncé enjoyed an eventful Labor Day weekend, visiting with the first lady and first daughters at Camp David, meeting former President Bill Clinton at a music festival, celebrating her birthday and spending time with daughter Blue Ivy and a new puppy.
After posting a half-dozen Instagram photos Friday of herself and 4-year-old Blue Ivy in New York — with four of the images showing a small white dog — Beyoncé and her daughter took a private plane that afternoon to the presidential retreat Camp David, in Catoctin Mountain Park in Frederick County, Maryland. Press photos show the singer deplaning onto the tarmac, wearing a white tank top and blue jeans and holding Blue Ivy by the hand. Police and other escorts stand around the duo.
According to Us Weekly, they would be joining first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha while President Barack Obama remained in China for the G-20 summit.
On Sunday, Beyoncé’s 35th birthday, her mother, Tina Knowles, posted an Instagram image of what appeared to be a vintage photo of herself and a newborn Beyoncé. “35 years ago today was one of the most happy days of my life,” Knowles captioned it. “Out of all the people in the world God picked me to be your mother! What a blessing!! Happy birthday to one of the kindest, smartest, most generous and humble human beings ever! I love you.”
Sunday night, the Grammy-winning music star attended day two of the Budweiser Made in America festival in Philadelphia, where she and her rapper / music-mogul husband Jay Z had front-row seats, said E! News. Press photos show Bill Clinton chatting with Beyoncé, with People magazine and others reporting she and Jay Z were thanked for supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Chance the Rapper sang “Happy Birthday” to Beyoncé, added CNN.
The following day, Live Nation announced that Beyoncé’s MetLife Stadium show, scheduled for Wednesday, would be rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 7.
Live Nation, which cited a doctor’s order for vocal stress for the “Hold Up” singer, told fans in a news release to hold on to their tickets for Wednesday’s show, noting they would be valid for the Oct. 7 MetLife show.
