Beyonce wants to perform at Obama inauguration

If Barack Obama is booking performers for his presidential inauguration, Beyonce is raising her hand.

One of Scarsdale’s newest residents told People magazine she’s “definitely” going to be there already because “I want to be there to witness it.”

She was asked about performing and she said, “Of course I’d love to. Who wouldn’t?”

Beyonce also discussed the fun she had last weekend performing a sketch with Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg on Saturday Night Live.

Speaking of Beyonce, she’ll appear in the upcoming movie Cadillac Records with Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def. The movie is already getting Oscar buzz and I got word they’re auctioning off tickets to the premiere here.
