Beyonce Beyoncé leads tributes to President Obama following US election win

Music stars have swarmed the internet to congratulate Barack Obama on his US election win.

Beyoncé has lead the tributes to the President with a sneaky dig at Mitt Romney supporters.

The “Single Ladies” star popped a handwritten note on her Tumblr which simply read, “TAKE THAT MITCHES.”

Earlier in the day, Beyoncé posted a snap of herself at a polling station casting her vote for Obama, while husband, Jay-Z, showed his support at a rally in Ohio on Monday (November 5), where he performed his song “99 Problems” with the revised lyrics, “I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one.”

Other stars congratulating Obama on his second term include American Idol judge, Mariah Carey, who took to Twitter straight after the President’s victory speech:

Katy Perry also tweeted her support:

As did Perry’s on-off BFF, Rihanna:

Meanwhile, promised a new song in ode to Obama’s win (God help us all):

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl looked pleased as punch after casting his vote:

And Lady Gaga had this to say:

We couldn’t agree more, Gaga!
