Only the best for the First Lady of music? Beyonce and Jay-Z reportedly shocked Secret Service Agents earlier this week when they were caught up in a media frenzy in New York City. The couple had finished dining at Nobu after attending Michelle Obama’s charity fundraiser when they were surrounded by paparazzi and fans.

According to the NY Daily News, one of the Secret Service Agents was shocked by the frenzy the superstars caused, and told the publication, “That’s not a way I’d like to live.”
When we asked the group of guards if they thought it would be more fun to guard Beyonce than the world’s strongest man, a third agent with bulging muscles asked his close-cropped compadre, “What do you think?
