Vanity Fair has named Jay Z and Beyonce the
No.1 power couple in America, beating the
Obama’s to the top position. According to Vanity
Fair’s ‘New Establishment’ for 2013, Jay Z and
Beyonce, who were ranked number 8 last year, are
the most important powers that be in the U.S this year. Helping them nab the top honor was Jay Z’s new
album, Magna Carter Holy Grail, which went double
platinum and Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime
performance, plus selling out her world tour and
releasing a documentary about her life on HBO.
