If Michelle Obama could choose: 'I'd be Beyonce'

If Michelle Obama could choose: 'I'd be Beyonce' By Alicia M. Cohn - 05/25/12 07:56 AM ET

If first lady Michelle Obama could be anyone else, she would be Beyonce.

"It looks like musicians just have the most fun," Obama told People magazine in an interview that hit newsstands on Friday.

Obama and the music superstar praised each other as role models last month when Beyonce posted a handwritten letter to Obama on her website that called her “the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman.”

But the first lady also admitted that she doesn't have the musical chops of her husband, who memorably sang a line of Al Green's "Let's stay together" at a fundraiser in New York City earlier this year.

“Sometimes I can’t get him to stop singing,” Michelle Obama said of the president. “He loves it in the shower in the morning, sings to the kids. But it’s not a song. He’ll sing one line of something romantic or cute.”

The first lady said if she had the musical talent Beyonce has, she would absolutely want to be "some great singer" in another life.

Instead, the first lady has written a book — her first — titled "American Grown: The story of the White House kitchen garden and gardens across America." She will promote the book next week with a media tour that includes appearances on Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show," ABC's "Good Morning America" and "The View" on Tuesday, the day of release.

Obama is widely known for her anti-obesity initiative Let's Move!, advocating organic foods and for challenging talk-show hosts to push-up competitions. She told the magazine she and President Obama no longer compete when it comes to physical fitness. "Not anymore, because I’m in way better shape than he is,” she said. "We don't take ourselves too seriously. At the gym, we're spending a lot more time laughing about who is trying to get out of doing their push-ups, who's whining too much.'

But also unlike Beyonce — or her husband — Michelle Obama told the magazine that she has made it her goal to avoid being photographed in a swimming suit.

“That’s been my one goal: I don’t want to be caught dead in a bathing suit!”

Thank you Mrs. Obama, we don’t want to see you in a swim suit either.
I am amused that you want to be a person who is fair shinned, green eyes and has blond hair.

For the first time in my adult life, I agree with Michelle Obama.

Maybe if we'd all convince her she's talented, maybe she'll want to take up singing and.. in her words... walk out that White House door and keep on walking.

“Sometimes I can’t get him to stop singing,” Michelle Obama said of the president.

Somehow it's not hard to imagine him breaking into old Barbra Streisand, Cher and Liza Minelli hits.

The backseat in a police car is too small.

Sorry Moose, you are stuck being you, and we are suffering for it more than your are.

How modest!

The truth is that she knows industry doesn't have the technology to make a large enough wide angle lens to capture her entire caboose in one shot.

Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough andstrong and mean”

If Michelle Obama could choose, she’d be Beyonce, a Texan...
Interesting since her husband’s regime seems to hate Texas.

I just can’t get enough of the Obamas.

They are on TV, on the radio, in the magazines. Man, I love it! They can never be overexposed.
