Top 5: Obama Moments

In honour of him winning the election.

Congratulations, America (and The World), Obama has won the election and will be president for four more years!

Let's leave aside the overall silliness of illuminati conspiracy theories and devil-woman Ann Coulter denouncing Lena Dunham and other "weak minded women" for sexualising the president, and let's instead celebrate the leader of the free world for being an entirely awesome individual. Here are just five of the many reasons why we love Obama (his politics aside):

1. He receives mad props from Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Beyoncé posted a love letter to Obama on her website yesterday and today she (finally) joined Instagram, her first photo being a selfie in an Obama-endorsed t-shirt.

Likewise, husband Jay-Z is a clear supporter of the POTUS, appearing in an Obama campaign ad last month. Moreover, he is not the biggest fan of Republican candidate Mitt Romney — so much so that he revised the lyrics to '99 Problems' at a recent Obama rally. "If you having world problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but Mitt ain't one". 

2. His wife is Michelle Obama
Any man whose wife is Michelle Obama is a man worth voting for. If you remain unconvinced, please watch this video of Michelle doing the Dougie and dancing to Beyoncé.

3. He has good taste
Mastering the art of the celebrity endorsement, Obama this year harnessed the voice of a generation, the girl-genius with the hit TV show and $3.5 million dollar book deal, Lena Dunham. She appeared in a campaign video called 'Your First Time' and irritated a bunch of conservatives.

4. He can skate
Let's be honest, you want a president who can skate.

5. His face
His face! Never has a president's face exhuded such glory as as Barack Obama's. And in these outtakes from Terry Richardson's 2007 Vibe magazine shoot, this glory is demonstrated at its fullest.
