Tip the scene in the presence of the lessers, Basement Baby!

Solange looked pretty damn good as she arrived at the 40/40 Club in Manhattan to attend a glamorous fundraiser for President Barack Obama hosted by sister Beyonce and brother-in-law Jay-Z on Tuesday night. The event raised more than $4 million for President Obama’s re-election campaign. Tickets for the event cost $40,000.

In her introduction of the President, Beyonce, wearing a red cocktail dress, reiterated her support of POTUS, telling donors she and her husband “believe in his vision.”

During the evening, Obama joked that he had a lot in common with Hov, telling the audience: “We both have daughters. And our wives are more popular than we are.” He turned to his host and added: ”So you know. So we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard, but it’s OK.”

Obama also praised Beyonce, describing her as positive a role model to his daughters Sasha and Malia. ”She carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent,” he said.

This week, Solange took to her Twitter account to clap back at Natural Hair Nazi combat troops after reading comments criticizing how she maintains her locks on her Instagram and peeping this blog post dedicated to why people should keep their natural hair opinions to themselves:

“Im only going to say a few things. I cut my hair ALL off 4 times in my life all for very different reasons….I only reiterate this because this is nothing new for me. This 4th time did not define me, just as it had not the previous 3 times. I’ve never painted myself as a team natural vice president.
