President Obama Compares Michelle To Beyonce: “She Upgraded Me”

Even for those who don’t like President Barack Obama’s politics, it’s hard to not admire the love that he and First Lady Michelle Obama share.

The First Couple sat down in separate interviews for Vogue magazine’s April issue — which the FLOTUS fronts in a stunning Reed Krakoff dress — and shared how their marriage has made them better people.

“Michelle’s like Beyoncé in that song,” President Obama said. “‘Let me upgrade ya!’ She upgraded me.” Read more…

  • How do we feel about Michelle Obama’s latest Vogue cover?  She’s lovely, of course, but her pose looks kind of stiff. It brings to mind those senior year school photos you have to take where you pose awkwardly, right?

I’m a great admirer of Madame Obama, I just prefer her without bangs because it doesn’t cover her face. But if she wanted to do it for her fiftieth birthday then I like it.

––Karl Lagerfeld, always good for an offensive soundbite, is backing off his previous comment that Michelle Obama’s bangs make her look like a news anchor. In France, that’s apparently an insult. Krazy Karl hit up the French news channel La Chaine Info, found his manners, and thwarted the world’s first hairdo-related international incident. (Except he got her age wrong: she’s 49.)

“This is my midlife crisis, the bangs. I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee-jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”

–Michelle Obama has a “Stars: they’re just like us!” moment on “The Rachael Ray Show,” revealing that, like millions of women before her, she decided to cut her bangs on her 49th birthday, in the midst of a midlife crisis. Her sassy new do appears in her latest official White House portrait, shown above. As someone who has made some really terrible hair decisions as a result of various existential crises (I once got an impulse pixie cut at a salon called “The Hack And Wack”), I applaud her restraint, and I think she looks great.
