London, Jan 14 (ANI): Acclaimed author J.K. Rowling has received a special gold-dust invitation for US President-elect Barack Obamas inaugural ceremony, according to reports.

The author received the special early invitation because Obama is a huge fan of Harry Potter books.

The invitation may see Rowling rubbing shoulders with celebrities like George Clooney and Will Smith at the star-studded inauguration ceremony and White House dinner on Tuesday.

However J.K. Rowlings spokeswoman said she was unaware of any decision on the invite.

The organisers of the bash in Washington are much aware of Obamas cool status, as rapper Jay-Z, his superstar wife Beyonce Knowles and rock legend Bruce Springsteen are also on the guest list for the glitzy reception.

Obama is cool. Hes the first pop culture president, The Sun quoted Morris Reid of the Creative Coalition, as saying.

In 2007, Obamas wife Michelle outed him as the original Harry Potter parent. (ANI)
