Supermodel Iman: Michelle Obama ‘Not a Great Beauty’

(May 20, 2009) - According to famed supermodel Iman, the lithe, Somalia-born fashionista married to rocker David Bowie, first lady Michelle Obama is “not a great beauty.”

In a recent interview with Parade magazine, the 53-year-old model and cosmetic line owner said, “Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty. But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age.”

Despite the model’s comments, the first lady was recently named No. 3 on Maxim magazine’s top 100 hot celebrity women’s list.

Iman also told Parade about the racism she encountered during her rise to fame in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

Iman should remember a basic truism when talking of the first lady:

Beauty is only skin deep. Ugly goes to the bone.

How in the heck can MO make these lists but I haven't seen Iman on them in a long time.

MO wishes she looked 1/1000th as good as Iman.

I think so, they’ve been together for ages.

Um, excuse me Iman, but who the hell asked you? And since when does a woman married to a guy that drank Mick Jagger’s man juice count for anything when it comes to the weight of opinion? Get lost you dizzy broad.

Then again, Michelle is married to a guy who drank Larry Sinclairs man juice.

I thought David Bowie was Mrs. Mick Jagger. I guess they stopped “experimenting” a while ago.

"But she is so interesting looking and so bright".

IMO, models I have known had IQs only slightly above room temperature. Iman would know "bright" if it bit her on her lovely a$$.

Nah. Angela Lindvall turned down a Rhodes Scholarship.

Just kidding - she dropped out of school at 14.

I would gladly give her a neocon1984 scholarship. That is, if my wife approved.

Which is why the media has not credibility on anything. It's not as if we can't see and think for ourselves. Even an Obama loon can figure out Michelle Obama is not a 'hot chick'.

Does this also mean a steaming pile of s**t doesn’t smell like fine perfume? Who knew?

Heh. That’s very kind considering what I usually hear from Ethiopians and Somalis about West Africans and American Blacks.

IMAN: "...it becomes what it was like during slavery," she said. "One had the field ni**er and the house ni**er. There was this notion that I was chosen by White fashion editors to be better than the rest, which I am not," she added. "I did not like being thought of as the house ni**er."

Here's what I don't get: Iman is from Somalia, so what the hell business does she have using American slave terminology? The woman was never a slave, and she is not an American. In fact, this woman has been living a privileged life far beyond the aspirations of most white people in the US, and all based on the fact that she was born pretty, and yet she's dragging out old US slave terms to act as if she is some kind of oppressed person? Bah. The civil rights movement, somewhere along the way, became an evil excuse to hate whitey, and now you don't even have to be a descendant of slaves to claim victimhood and hate whitey too! Whoopee!

Michele Obama has a rather large derrière which she goes to great lengths to conceal. Sorry Michelle, it just doesn’t work.
