We’re calling it #GimmeFive and we’re using the hashtag #GimmeFive on social media,” Mrs. Obama said. “We’re asking folks all across the country to #GimmeFive ways their leading a healthy life. We’ve got a lot of celebrities involved. Beyonce gave me five, and Ryan Seacrest and Nick Jonas and even the astronauts on the space shuttle; the International Space Shuttle got involved. And we’re gonna take over the Easter Egg Roll this year with a #GimmeFive dance and actually the So You Think You Can Dance All-Stars are coming to the Easter Egg Roll to teach the whole south lawn this dance.”

    “We’re asking folks all across the country to #GimmeFive ways THEIR leading a healthy life”??? Their not they’re, JJ??? I’m pretty sure Michelle Obama didn’t say that because that wouldn’t make any sense.

    God I LOVE Michelle Obama!! Every woman should be this complete. Adorable, super-smart, sexy, serious, principled and yet fun and unpretentious and oh, so cool!! And 2 Ivy League degrees too!!! OMG!!
    How can she be 51?? How can she be 51 and move so effortlessly like that??!! How? I’m half her age and have zero moves. None. Zilch.
    I’m so crazy in love with Mrs Obama. She’s seriously my one and only girl crush. I’m obsessed, and I can totally see why Barack Obama is so hooked on his wife like a drug. There’s something seriously sexy about the woman, even when she isn’t trying to be.

    Know exactly what you mean. One can tell a woman who’s great in bed; And it’s not usually the obvious ones who play hard at being sexpots. No disrespect to President Obama and the First Lady, but having watched Mrs Obama over the years, let’s just say that President Obama is a very, very lucky man.

    Michelle is truly the best First lady ever. Love her.


    Amen. 51? She looks like she is much younger than that. I think it’s great that she is promoting volunteerism, exercise, and compassion in communities globally. She is an excellent woman and a wonderful First Lady. She is not only a very beautiful woman, but she promotes just causes and she is very intelligent.

    Bless First Lady Michelle Obama.

    It would be nice if FLOTUS was actually working on instigating REAL change rather than self-promotion. It would be lovely to see a first lady with some class again. One can only hope…

  • Amalas Magic

    To Canadian: With the USA having an obesity rate over 50% of the population, she is promoting REAL change … exercise, health, diet, etc. Many First Ladies do this: Laura Bush – libraries/reading, Nancy Reagan- just say no to drugs. Michelle Obama is the picture of health herself, so she’s setting the example. You wouldn’t know class if it walked up and bit you. Michelle Obama: intellect, beauty, humor, style, education, experience … She makes America look great!

    You are entitled to your opinion, as am I. I was just expressing mine. Enjoy your day.

  • dre mckenzie

    Lauren, every woman won’t be like her. 👍to her!

  • Drew2U

    Wow–could the people in Selma 50 years ago even dare to imagine that an African American First Lady would be dancing on a lesbian’s talk show? Hate will NEVER win.

  • Drew2U

    …You’re an ignoramus. That’s my opinion. You go enjoy YOUR day. Oh and the last First Lady with “class” killed her ex-boyfriend with her car.

  • jenjen64

    As are others entitled to expressing their opinions disagreeing with you. Cannot understand why you would think FLOTUS doesn’t have class and the only promotion that I’ve witnessed is as Amalas Magic stated: living a healthy life by exercising and selecting healthier eating options. How is that considered distasteful? Is your opinion that she should behave as women have in the past to be seen and not heard? Sheesh.

  • KP

    Great first lady, beautiful, practical, smart, funny and in shape. Traveling the country to promote good health and nutrition for our kids….Its sad that no matter how together you are some people will take the low road. Harvard Law School graduate and 1st lady of the free world and still some bigots will take a shot……..God how scummy that must feel to live a life of hate.


    I agree with you totally.

  • disq141synergy

    You must be either so extreme to the right politically you can’t see straight, a racist or both, not to appreciate the positive energy and contributions of the first lady.

    Glad to see the idiot’s wife and he are having fun while the country is going to crap…with Osama going on talk shows and doing stand up and this clown dancing while there are people suffering as a result of Bozo Osama’s action I hardly see anything from this administration to laugh about! The whole admin is corrupt from Hillbillys e-mail to the Iran debacle to the illegal immigration policy I can’t wait for this idiot and his spawn from hell to bet im[eached!
