The former prez and first lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, were spotted movin’ and groovin’ at the last night’s Beyonce and Jay Z concert in Landover Maryland, right outside DC.
They were spotted in a box at the FedExField, where the Redskins play. At first, nobody noticed, but when folks did, they went bananas! From ythat poit on, the BO and MO were serious competition for Bey and Jay when it came to the crowd’s attention, ’cause the they cellphones were definitely trained on you-know-who.
In other concert news from Saturday night, Janet Jackson made a surprise move at the Panorama Music Festival in Randall’s Island, New York, by starting her set with a song that not many people know but has a deep message.
TMZ reports that Janet hit the stage with “The Skin Game (Part 1),” the b side of a 30-year-old record.
Before she started singing, the audience heard audio of reporters doing stories about white supremacists and terrorism. Then the names of black men killed by police — unarmed black men — appeared on the big screens next to the stage.
Janet did not disappoint … singing a number of her hits from her catalog. There was definitely a message beyond just singing hits. Now, we don’t have video of her singing “Skin Game” at the Panarama Music Festival, but we do have her performing it at the Essence Festival.
Below, Janet explains why she’s adding the song to her st list and specifically why it’s the opening number:

The consensus seems to be that Janet straight up stole the show.
That’s good newes for her because, otherwise, she’s had a tough year … a nasty divorce and the passing of her father, Joe.
