The president was there for a 9/11 service project at the charter school in D.C., helping stuff book bags with supplies for the homeless. But this isn't actually the "little girl would rather have seen Beyonce" story the first part of that CBS video would suggest.

NBC actually played out the rest of the video, and little Madison redeemed herself, saying, "Then I realized it was going to be you. That's even better."

The president replied, "Aww! I appreciate you saying that in front of the press. I know it's not really true, but that's OK."

We wouldn't blame Madison, though -- 2014 has been the year of Queen Bey. With the star topping almost every list of America's best-lovedcelebrities.

And the Obamas clearly relate to the sentiment. After all, Beyonce worked with the first lady on her "Let's Move" campaign. And, you know, sang at the president's last inauguration.
