Michelle Obama Pushes for Arts in School at Grammy Luncheon

Michelle Obama waves to the crowd while attending The Grammy Museum’s Jane Ortner Education Award luncheon on Wednesday afternoon (July 16) at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

The First Lady of the United States was joined by singer Janelle Monae, who entertained the crowd with an energetic performance.

“For so many young people, arts education is the only reason they get up out of bed in the morning,” Michelle said (via the Los Angeles Times). “Just like Janelle, they go to school each day because there’s an instrument they want to play, a musical they want to perform in, a painting they are dying to finish. So then once they arrive in those classrooms, that’s when we can teach them something else, like math and writing and science. That is the power of the arts for so many of our young people.”

FYI: Michelle is wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.

Janelle Monae Revamps David Bowie's 'Heroes' for Letterman

Janelle Monae waves to her fans while posing for photos outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre following her appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday (June 11) in New York City.

The 28-year-old singer performed her version of the David Bowie classic “Heroes,” which is featured on the Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game compilation album.

“It was a collaborative effort between Pepsi and me. As we were going through songs, his name came up, of course — I love him. I think he has done some exceptional work and he has inspired not just me, but many people with this song. I thought it would be the perfect song. I really do love the fact that it tied into a big project that has a lot of really eclectic artists on it,” Janelle told the Huffington Post. “The lyrics to ‘Heroes’ also represent the anti-bullying campaign. The Young Astronauts production company made this video that’s just so empowering that speaks out against it. I hope young people are really inspired by it and hear that message and are able to carry it with them as they go to school, and throughout their lives.”


Janelle Monae: “Heroes”

FYI: Janelle is wearing a Rachel Zoe Collection top.

Michelle Obama Hosts Women in Soul Event, President Barack Obama Flubs Spelling of Aretha Franklin's 'Respect'

First Lady Michelle Obama takes the microphone to deliver remarks during her workshop titled “I’m Every Woman: The History of Women in Soul” in the State Dining Room at the White House on Thursday (March 6) in Washington, DC.

The 50-year-old first lady was joined at the function by singers Janelle Monae, Melissa Ethridge, and Patti LaBelle.

Later in the evening, President Obama delivered remarks at the Women of Soul concert series, where he accidentally misspelled Aretha Franklin‘s “Respect”!

“When Aretha [Franklin] first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved,” President Obama said. “They wanted some respect.”

Watch the video of the flub below.
