Beyonce's 35th birthday

It was a busy weekend for queen Bey who turned 35 on Sunday (4 September). The Hold Up singer had kicked off the Labor Day weekend with First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Malia and Sasha at Camp David in Maryland. Beyonce is then believed to have jetted over to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the festival with Malia in tow as the 18-year-old was also seen mingling at the event.

Beyonce spent Sunday watching various performances before indulging in PDA with Jay Z, 46. An onlooker told E! News: "They were acting very affectionate and dancing with each other near the stage. Jay Z had his arms around her and kissed Beyoncé during the show. He was dancing behind her the whole concert."

It is rumoured that Beyonce will throw a Soul Train-themed party on 5 September to celebrate her special day with the rest of her friends and family.

Bill Clinton

President Barack Obama is busy at the G20 Summit in China so a former POTUS made an appearance at Made In America instead. Bill Clinton was seen hanging out with Beyonce in the VIP area where they were seen engaging in deep conversation. Clinton, 70, is either an avid music fan or he was showing his face as part of the presidential campaign for his wife Hillary Clinton.

Malia Obama says "smoking kills"

The president's eldest child caused quite the scandal when she was allegedly pictured smoking marijuana at Lollapalooza festival in July. However her message was quite the opposite at Made In America as the teen was seen wearing a white T-shirt with "smoking kills" emblazoned on the front. Barack and Michelle would be proud.

Rihanna urges fans to vote

RiRi brought her Anti World Tour to the stage on Saturday and treated fans to an epic 90-minute performance. However, it seems Bill Clinton may have had a word with Rihanna as the pop star urged her fans to vote in the upcoming presidential election. With the Work singer unable to vote being that she was born in Barbados, RiRi encouraged her audience to have their say, stating: "The power is in your hands."

According to, more than 46,000 flocked to Rihanna's performance which included the songs Work, Needed Me, Kiss It Better, We Found Love and Take Care. Unfortunately for those hoping to catch a glimpse of the new couple, Drake did not make a cameo during his rumoured girlfriend's set.
