Michelle Obama Talks Her Famous Bangs, Turning 50 to 'Parade'

Michelle Obama Talks Her Famous Bangs, Turning 50 to 'Parade'

Michelle Obama looks chic and gorgeous on the cover of Parade‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old First Lady of the United States had to share with the mag:

On why she grew out her world famous bangs: “You know, it’s hard to make speeches with hair in your face!”

On rules for daughters Sasha and Malia in the Obama household: “I give them as long a leash as they can handle. What I tell my kids is, I’m preparing you for college and for life. So, having independence, knowing how to set your own boundaries, figuring out how to make that balance. We still have screen time rules.”

On whether an African American family in the White House has changed anything: “Absolutely. Children born in the last eight years will only know an African-American man being president of the United States. That changes the bar for all of our children, regardless of their race, their sexual orientation, their gender. It expands the scope of opportunity in their minds. And that’s where change happens.”

On turning 50 in January: “I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman. But I am constantly thinking about my own health and making sure that I’m eating right and getting exercise and watching the aches and pains. I want to be this really fly 80-, 90-year old.”

Certainly hope she, her golfer husband and their family had a nice $100 million vacation in Africa recently and are now enjoying the Hamptons while millions of Americans are unemployed.

When I read ‘Michelle on the Move’, I was hoping it had something to do with a U-Haul.

Correction – I should have said Martha’s Vineyard, not the Hamptons. All those fancy places seem the same!!

# 6

With all the phones scandals happening does she really think we care about her stupid BANGS?

Ah, I remember the days when her husband used to criticize Bush for his fancy vacations on the beach. What did he used to say? “My Kennebunkport is the south side of Chicago.” Now, their vacations make the Bush vacations like kind of puny.

I also miss the days when you could say anything you wanted to say about the president and his wife and it was just free speech. Today, the Secret Service is being asked to investigate a circus clown who hurt Mr. Sensitive’s feelings.

@sillyme – Yes, I agree with you. I remember when Obama and his staff criticized Bush and Romney for their wealth and wealthy friends, but now hypocrite Obama is hanging out with friends just as wealthy. And how that family can justify taking expensive tax-payer paid vacations like their recent trip to Africa, while millions of Americans are unemployed, is beyond me.
