It seems tickets for an upcoming Obama fundraiser with Beyonce and Jay Z in NY aren't selling quickly enough. So singer Beyonce sent out a personal email to well-heeled President Obama supporters begging them to plunk down $40,000 for a ticket to attend the fundraiser.

"I usually don’t email you," writes Beyonce in each personalized email to Obama supporters. "but I have an amazing invitation I have to share."

"Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!," she adds.

It isn't like the email recipients don't know that Obama will be holding a fundraiser in NYC with Beyonce and Jay Z -- they just don't want to pay $40,000 for a ticket to attend.

Read the email Beyonce sent to Charlie Sperling, a writer for the Washington Examiner after the break.

    A reader emailed to express her disgust at singer Jennifer Hudson for allowing her sister to appear on Oprah's Next Chapter. The segment of Oprah's Next Chapter was taped at Jennifer's home, and will air on Sept. 9.

    The reader criticized everything about Julia Hudson -- from her quick weave and morbid obesity to her casual attire. Everyone grieves differently. Maybe Julia has not completed the grieving process for her son, and maybe she wanted to appear on camera as herself (a grieving mom) rather than a fake, Hollywood image of herself?
