    great. now they gave her the laura bush do. why do older women make the mistake of cutting their hair short? men like long hair. black hair is problematic at this length

  • katherine palmer

    Nice one.

  • Amy

    Why is it our president and first lady are treated like celebrities? Am I the only one who gets annoyed by that?

  • Pat

    Love it!

  • Avery09

    She looks GREAT! But then again, she always does!

  • mia

    She looks great.

  • Somebody

    Who cares? This story will be all over the news today while the economy falters, unemployment is on the rise and the White House is trying to shove their ridiculous healthcare plan down our throats whether or not we want it. First their dog and now her hairdo. Unbelievable.

  • bald celebrity outing

    I think the new hair cut looks great! And no it doesn’t bother me when the president is treated like a celeb… in fact I wish people who were actually accomplished got celeb recognition rather than the paris hiltons of the world.

  • ALA

    This “do” is totally just her hair pinned up in a bun to make a pseudo short hair cut…you can tell in the close up…just leave her hair alone…

  • common sense

    I love Michelle’s new hair-do. Millions of people are without health insurance or health care in this country and it continues to decline everyday. “Somebody” should care because that “somebody” may turn out to be you just when your health may suddenly take a turn for the worse. You never know what life will bring…sometimes it takes “somebody” and turns them into a “nobody”. (life has a way of knocking you on your ass when you least expect it) Humble yourself.

  • jtredway

    I’m not feeling it. It ages her.

  • T

    I like it; very 60′s mod.

    #1- long hair does not equate beauty and not all men like long hair.

  • T

    I like it; very 60′s mod. It does look like she just has it pinned up though.

    #1- long hair does not equate beauty and not all men like long hair.

  • Jolie hot chin not


  • Denise

    I am sick of her bare arms and her protruding jaw. There are braces for adults, does she have dental insurance??

  • Jolie hot chin not

  • Stacy


  • Halli

    Noooo. Not a good look, it ages her.

  • Lalique

    @Amy: No, you’re not, although I’m more mystified than annoyed. George Bush was rarely featured on this site, for example, and I say THANK YOU, JARED!!!!!!!! for that ;-)

  • Willa


    Rhonda, no one’s buying into your ignorant racist remarks and your straight-up LIES about Michelle and others. Get a life.

  • Christopher

    Her hair is just pinned back.

  • Paige


    Rhonda is one sick puppy. Probably an old fat overweight registered sex offender living in a trailer park.

  • Shell

    Wow, this was definitely news worthy.

  • Lalique

    I think she looks good in this haircut.

  • Rhonda


    What’s a lie?

  • Rhonda


    you just described yourself!

  • Ava

    Her hair is just pulled back, its not cut.
    I HATE the dress, its too girly. She looks better when she wears more sophisticated clothing. But I like her.

  • sheryl

    Love it!!

  • Ava


    Denise, you should move to Saudi Arabia than, if you are so offended with bare arms.

  • belle

    she has a steamshovel for a jaw and her license WAS revoked

  • Ava


    Well obviously you’re a racist but are you a pervert or something? You are talking about an 11 year old girl.
    You sound really messed up.

  • Nobody

    Gee Somebody did you get lost on your way to Fox News. Why even CLICK on this story and then post about it? This is an ENTERTAINMENT BOARD!!! Go talk about the Economy somewhere else.

  • Somebody

    #10 Common Sense-Well I guess we’ll see how this turns out (if it even gets passed). When your employer has to make cutbacks because they can’t afford the higher taxes being imposed along with the insurance plan the government has for you, I hope it doesn’t affect your job but don’t hold your breath. Take a look at the States who are starting to layoff workers right and left because of they can’t sustain all the spending that is going on.Take a good look at Medicare and Medecaid, the DMV and all the other government run programs. It’s one big clusterf”"k that costs taxpayers more and more money. You should really do some research before you start pounding your chest about how great it’s going to be.

  • islandgrl

    you’re a real ass.

  • obama…the debt man

    She is finally looking like Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan in that dress.
    And her hairdo.. so her husband wants to push another bill on the
    tax payers dime.. when California is in debt right now .. wanting to
    release 1900 prisoners and other stuff because they can not afford
    it.. So go ahead Obama use the tax payers money for anything other
    than the tax payers..should be paying for …the state that they live in..


    Her law license was revoked and the reasons are pretty much under lock and key. That is the truth and has nothing to do with racism. And quite frankly, I am tired of all the parties and dances and get togethers (and her vegetable garden??) because that is not what he was hired to do. Actually I wouldn’t give a crap about all the hoopla if he were making the progress he promised us. United States PR is good to work on but is not what is failing us Americans right now. Do you realize how much money is spent on taking care of the first lady?? It’s disgusting. And NO I will probably never forgive her statement about this being the first time she was “proud” of her country. Especially considering the educational/financial benefits she has received from the country. And I won’t even get into the whole issue with their former preacher who was “like family for many years” who did nothing short of preaching his own brand of racism every sunday. It is funny that many people in foreign country absolutely love this president – probably more than we do at this point considering his public opinion has dramatically nose dived.

  • Shelly

    @Jolie hot chin not:

    You make me laugh out loud sometimes.

  • Ava

    Yep, you’re a pervert and a racist. You’re sick. Please stay away from public playgrounds. Thanks.

  • miapocca

    She looks Fab

    Concerning her law liscence…know your facts before you write nonsense!
    The record shows that Michelle Obama voluntarily took her law license to “inactive” status. This is not the loss of license, but a suspension with the option (though not the requirement) to reactivate the license later.

    In Illinois, voluntary inactivations require an order of th court to commence the cancellation of malpractice insurance, annual licensing fees and the continuing education credits otherwise required by law.

    Per Michelle Obama’s record on the Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission website, “No malpractice report required as attorney is on court ordered inactive status. ” See link below.

  • Shelly

    @obama…the debt man:
    No, CA might be releasing 27,000 inmates. And before you libs go all nuts, I did NOT get that from Fox. I got it was a new site that actually took the BO blinders off for a minute and saw what’s really happening to this country.

  • Ava

    T@Rhonda: hanks.
    Yep, you’re a pervert and a racist. You’re sick. Please stay away from public playgrounds. Thanks.

    I hope you realize that there are numerous White House events that EVERY administration hosts. I’m from Washington and whether they are Republican or Democrat, they host many events. And the secret service is doing their job to protect our Presidents and their families, past and present. Just yesterday, Obama extended Dick Cheney’s secret service, even though he doesn’t have to.

  • miapocca

    You must be joking…ahahha

    you are hilarious, I wish you 8 years of sheer suffering anything you see president and his wife. Your hatred is baseless considering the fact taht this man won the popular vote as well as the electoral vote. plus he is one intelligent man!!

    I hope you dont choke in your own vomit anytime you see the first family…its hurts to see them right..imagine what the rest of the world and the US had to go through seeing bush on tv talking nonense and doing nonsense for the last 8 years!1

  • Bree


    Good one. Facts are too hard for these weird obsessed freaks. Why do some people make politics personal? If they did their research they would have known that Michelle VOLUNTARILY made her law license inactive, as she took up a different profession. Happens all the time. Thanks.

  • islandgrl

    @Rhonda: you’re a real ass.

    Rhonda, you might be doing this to get a raise out of people but why would you attack a child? Such baseline ignorance on your part. We may have to read your idiotic comments, but you are the one that has to live with being a mental moron.

  • Jeannified

    Yes…love it! So classy!

  • Ethioma

    Absolutely gorgeous! She looks fantastic. The new hair do does not age her at all #11! You need glasses.

  • Pretty girl

    Perfect…you go Madame Obama!!!

  • obama…OH MAN



  • Chris

    Michelle seems sweet. She looks great and seems to have a genuine heart. I like her!
