Alicia Keys is Michelle Obama

Alicia Keys is Michelle Obama

Alicia Keys does her best impression of First Lady Michelle Obama in this new photo from Glamour mag’s tribute to American Icons.

The mag even had stand-ins for the Obama daughters — Malia and Natasha (Sasha for short)!

Alicia has said of Michelle, “She has worked hard for everything she’s accomplished, and done so with grace and humility. So many women and girls can identify with her story.”

are you kidding? her name is SASHA. not natasha!

# 2

Jared it’s Malia and Sasha

# 3

Jared’s right. Her real name is NATASHA. They just call her Sasha.

yeahh i agree with what was said directly above by Suzie!! But, at first I was practically laughing at the “mistake” because that would be such a horrible thing to do, mess up her name. but i know realize that Sasha is short for Natasha, Sasha is her nickname, but it’s the name that she is called and goes by. To clear things up lol very cool idea though to have Alicia Keys do this in a photoshoot, gorgeous pic!! very cute, and i love what Alicia said about Michelle Obama!!! great quote, i love Alicia Keys and the Obamas!!!

Alicia=pretty. Daughters’ names are Malia and Natasha (Sasha for short/nickname).

# 6

Her name is Natasha but they call her Sasha for short. I think Alicia and Michelle are both beautiful but they look nothing alike. They could have gotten a different actress/singer/model.

# 7

Really?! they couldn’t use an actress who wasn’t biracial?! Not saying there’s anything wrong with biracial people, but Michelle Obama has two black parents.

# 8

I also love Alicia Keys, and her music.

I agree with Janelle and Jilli. Alicia and Michelle are beautiful but they have completley different looks. It’s like if they had michelle posing as Alicia. It’s odd. Couldn’t they have gotten someone who looks more like Michelle.

I agree with Jilli and Janelle, for pete’s sake there were no fully black women who could’ve done this. I have nothing against Alicia, I love her work; but it seems like this would be the one instance where women who are fully black are more recognized. I hate that they always put lighter skinned people up as more beautiful it really makes those who aren’t feel bad

I don’t think this is about finding a look-alike, she is portraying herself as an impression of Michelle Obama. She’s an icon herself, acting as another icon. Its an artistic representation and I think Alicia Keys is a great choice. I hope there are more pictures to come and less criticisms.

They could have find someone who looked like M.O. to a tee, but what would be interesting about that? We may as well look at M.O. herself in that case. Here you have someone you recognize, portraying herself as someone else you recognize. I think it is really nice and complementary to all involved.

Lovely.

That is gorgeous! and the stand ins for the daughters are adorable!

Love the beautiful and talented Alicia!

seriously……give me a break

Are you serious? They just decided to pick any old black chick. They could have at least picked someone a little darker, like Michelle. People are forever trying to “lighten” poor Michelle. Man, dark skinned girls don’t get any love.

Love Alicia Keys. As for the comparison (or portrayal) to Michelle Obama? Michele should be flattered. Alicia is to beauty what Michelle is to beast. I do not find Michelle attractive. She is very manly/tranny-like. Those little girls w/ Alicia are beautiful, too.

What’s your take on Chas. Marquez Jr.’s skill level ?? Do you think he may someday be as good as Angel Codero Jr. was i his prime. I met Marquez Jr. about 5 yrs ago right 2 races after a spill at 1/8th pole about mid-pack and moving up at OP race 6; seemed like a real nice kid and I like his riding style and perseverance.

kirstie, may, justme, and silly me are the same person!!! sad!

I’m disappointed in their choice of models for the First Ladies; they coud’ve chosen India Arie, Janet Jackson, Brandy, or even Halle who’s darker than Alicia; and notice how yellow the “daughters” are; it’s so annoying how america seems to only associate darker skin in negative ads and lighter skin in the positive ones; but that’s the world we llive in.

Alicia keys did a great job portraying Michelle Obama. This picture is just a recognition from one icon to another who cares if the skin color is different. Alicia is still a black women representing another black women, so let’s leave the color issue alone and move forward.
