Obama Treasury Dept. OK'd Jay-Z, Beyonce Cuba Trip
Beyonce and Jay-Z are two of President Barack Obama's biggest celebrity supporters. Beyonce even crooned for the Commander in Chief during his inauguration ceremony in January.
Well, she lip-synced her heart out on his behalf.
Now, the duo is sparking political news by celebrating their wedding anniversary in Cuba, a no-no given tourist embargo restrictions on the books for the past 50-plus years. Turns out the Obama Treasury department gave the famous duo the "all clear" to visit the Communist country.
The longstanding U.S. trade embargo against Cuba prevents most Americans from traveling to the island without a license granted by the U.S. government, though President Barack Obama's administration has eased restrictions on travel to Cuba for academic, religious or cultural programs.
