Barack Obama told Cleveland radio station Z107.9 this week that he's offered a few tips to new dad Jay-Z about riasing daughter Ivy Blue with Beyoncé.  "I've gotten to know these guys over the last several years . . . They're good people. Beyoncé could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. . . So they're good friends," the president says around the 6:33 mark. "They really are down-to-earth folks. And we talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends."

A big topic of discussion? Kids. "They've got a new daughter. I made sure Jay-Z was helping Beyoncé out and not leaving it all to mom and the mother-in-law," said Obama. Being a president or a rap mogul might be a tough job, but being a parent can humble even the best.
