Beyonce Joins Instagram, Gives Obama One Last Boost

In her first photo on the site, Bey poses in a 'Texans for Obama' T-shirt.

Are you looking for someone new to follow on Instagram? Someone famous and talented and fabulous? Look no further than the photo-sharing site’s newest member, Beyonce Knowles. The pop star made her presence known on the social-media site Tuesday (November 6) with an introductory post full of personality.

“Hey Instagram, it’s me Bey,” she posted, along with a sassy photo that shows a casually dressed and not heavily made up Knowles wearing black-rimmed glasses, her hair pulled up into a messy bun, making a scrunched-up face and pointing to her T-shirt that reads “Texans for Obama.” Bey also posted her Instagram announcement on her website, asking fans to follow her under the username BaddieBey.

Knowles has really been in the politically themed social-media spirit lately. On Monday, she took to her Tumblr to post a heartfelt handwritten note to President Obama expressing her “respect and admiration” for the POTUS. Queen B and her husband have been very enthusiastic in expressing their support of Obama recently, hosting fundraisers and literally singing about it, via Jay-Z’s performance of a remixed version of “99 Problems” at an Obama rally in Columbus, Ohio.

We’re live from Romney and Obama’s campaign headquarters!

Speaking of Bey’s activity on social media, her lighthearted introductory photo announcing her Instagram account is similar to when she launched her Tumblr site back in April with her first-ever tweet. The photos added to her Tumblr offered fans a unique glimpse into Bey’s private life, the details of which the pop star has always been shy about sharing, including photos of her baby, Blue Ivy Carter.

Kelly Clarkson is an avowed “Obama girl” — even though her boyfriend backs Romney.
