  • BET Awards Celebrate 'Our Forever First Lady' Michelle Obama

    Airing on June 25, the 2017 BET Awards were hosted by comedienne Leslie Jones and mostly featured live musical performances. Otherwise, the focus of the awards was a message of encouraging Black Lives Matter social justice warriors, although, without the long preachy political sermons delivered in many other awards shows. References to people killed in police-involved shootings - including the acquittal last week of the officer who shot Philando Castile - were present throughout. Four members of the cast of an upcoming movie titled Detroit, about the 1967 riots in that city, came out to present the Centric Award to...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The morning after Michelle Obama's big speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, in which she argued passionately for a second term for her husband, designer Tracy Reese's phone was ringing. And ringing. Mrs. Obama's powerfully delivered speech had attracted much attention - but these phone calls were about her dress. A shimmering sleeveless sheath in rose and silvery gray, it was pretty universally considered a fashion slam dunk. And customers wanted it.

    Michelle Obama will be ceding the title of first lady to Melania Trump next month, but she may hold for some time the other distinction she earned during her time in the White House: America's best known advocate for healthy food. The non-profit organization she helped create as first lady, Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), where she is honorary chair, will continue its work convincing food companies to improve nutrition content and labeling of products, the group said. "Michelle Obama has been a tremendous leader in this space," said Larry Soler, president and chief executive of the group. "That...

    First lady Michelle Obama hasn't decided to write a White House memoir yet, but that hasn't stopped her admirers from readying their own appreciations. According to publishing insiders, several biographers are looking to cash in on the popularity of the first black first lady, and one written by Obama herself could fetch close to the $8 million Hillary Clinton received for Living History.In time for the Jan. 20 inauguration, Obama's last time on the presidential stage, the first of the many books debuts with an unusual collection of tributes to her brain, achievements and even her "big booty."

    What would Thanksgiving Day be without more gushing over the Obamas? The Washington Post on Thursday declared That Michelle Obama’s “departure from the East Wing signaled the end of a singular era for American fashion.” The piece by Robin Givhan contrasts with the writer’s bashing of the looks of conservative women such as Carly Fiorina, who she mocked as a “style bully.” Regarding Mrs. Obama, Givhan fawned, “She helped young people see that fashion is more than catwalk extravaganzas and ‘Project Runway.’"
  • Michelle Obama is Democrats’ best bet for 2020, oddsmakers say

    Michelle Obama says she wants nothing to do with politics now, but oddsmakers still say she’s got the best chance of any Democrat of winning the White House in four years. Bovada, an online gambling site, says the odds of Mrs. Obama winning are 12-to-1. The next-best Democrats, Sen. Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren, get odds of 14-to-1. By contrast three Republicans have higher odds: President-elect Donald Trump is a 2-to-1 bet to repeat, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are each given 10-to-1 odds.

    Washington (CNN)First Lady Michelle Obama is making her third appearance on the cover of Vogue as her days in the White House draw to a close. The cover shows the first lady reclining on the grass in the South Lawn garden, her hair loose and her elbows propped up on a flower bed. Inside the magazine, Obama describes a wistfulness at leaving White House life behind. "You know, there are little ... moments," she said. "Looking out on the South Lawn and the Washington Monument and it had just rained and the grass was really green and everything popped a...

    President Barack Obama on Friday shut down speculation that First Lady Michelle Obama might pursue a political career of her own. The First Lady has become one of Hillary Clinton’s most popular and effective surrogates during the presidential race. She has captured audiences with impassioned, emotional speeches at the Democratic National Convention and on the campaign trail. At a rally in North Carolina on Thursday, it was Clinton who spoke first and introduced Michelle Obama to resounding applause.

    First lady Michelle Obama is making sure that whoever inhabits the White House next doesn’t rip out her iconic vegetable garden — at least not without a big fuss. Obama Wednesday afternoon unveiled a much bigger version of the garden that uses cement, stone and steel to make it a more permanent fixture on the South Lawn. The updates are seen not just as preserving Obama’s garden — recognized globally as a symbol of local food — but also as a way to dissuade, say, a President Donald Trump from scrapping it the way Ronald Reagan tore out Jimmy...

    Michelle Obama said she can’t wait until she is “not responsible for every headline.” In an interview with In Style magazine, the 52-year-old first lady talked about what life is going to be like after she leaves the White House in January, and she made it clear she is looking forward to it. “My hopes are to recapture some of the everydayness, some anonymity,” Obama said. “And we know that will take some time.

    The First Family is en route to Martha's Vineyard to begin their two-week family vacation on the Island. President Obama, the First Lady, and daughters Malia and Sasha left the White House to board Marine One on the south lawn. Marine One took off at 12:41 p.m., bound for Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. There the family boarded Air Force One for the flight to Cape Cod and the Vineyard for a 1:03 p.m. departure. Sasha and Malia were chatting with each other as they boarded first, according to pool reports, and Mr. and Mrs. Obama followed. The President was...

    First lady Michelle Obama has wrapped up her six-day “Let Girls Learn” tour of Liberia, Morocco and Spain. Together with her mother Marian and two daughters Sasha and Malia, the FLOTUS, under the guise of promoting access to education for 62 million girls worldwide, embarked on a multimillion-dollar excursion where she ate great food, wore great clothes, hung out with celebrities, and spent $600,000 for one night in Marrakesh. In Madrid, while speaking to schoolgirls about equality, Michelle did what her husband Obama does in African nations that ban homosexuality; she interfered by making a comment about abortion that...

    Over the last 8 years, Michelle Obama has evolved into an exemplary world traveler. Compliments of the struggling U.S. taxpayer, the FLOTUS consistently indulges in at least five or six multi-million dollar vacations per year.In March, if things get boring, Michelle, mother Marian, and daughters Sasha and Malia, either fly solo or use Dad (if he’s not golfing) as an excuse to pamper their weary bones with an all expense paid “working vacation.” Like clockwork, the girl gang jets off to destinations such as Cuba, China, Japan, Qatar, Argentina or Cambodia. Predictably, there’s always a June pre-Martha’s Vineyard vacation where...

    It was a fashion face-off of epic proportions when Michelle Obama met with Queen Letizia in Madrid today. America's first lady was joined by the glamorous royal in the Spanish capital, on what was the last leg of a trip to promote girls' education in poorer countries and raise awareness of gender inequalities. The ever-chic Letizia, 43, stunned in a sleeveless scarlet dress from Nina Ricci that showcased her toned arms, adding a pair of pointed nude courts and turquoise earrings.

    First lady Michelle Obama is relying heavily on social media to tout an overseas trip tied to the Let Girls Learn campaign, which is aiming to get an estimated 62 million uneducated girls into school. Obama started a Snapchat account with help from celebrities including James Corden of "The Late Late Show," with whom she recently taped a "Carpool Karaoke" that will run at a future date. She's posting reports on her stops in Liberia, Morocco and Spain on, an online community for women. She referred in one report to the heartbreak of an 11- or 12-year-old girl told...

    First Lady Michelle Obama explains how she deals with “the haters” as she prepares to leave the White House with her husband in January. During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the First Lady explained that she learned how to turn off social media and traditional media criticism of her family. “You can’t be reading all that stuff. I mean, that’s like letting somebody just walk up and slap you, you know?” she said. “You would never just sit there and go, slap me in the face and I’m good with it.”

    Michelle Obama offered a scathing, barely veiled critique of Donald Trump on Friday as she delivered her final commencement address as first lady, warning graduates of City College in New York that while their diverse backgrounds are to be celebrated, they should beware of those who "build up walls to keep people out." "They seem to view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped," Obama said. "They tell us to be afraid of those who are different, to be suspicious of those with whom we disagree. They act as if name-calling...

    First ladies generally are allowed considerable immunity from criticism, because they generally stick to feel-good issues, like literacy, roadside beautification, and other subjects most people can agree on. But not Michelle Obama, who has enjoyed some of the most unrealistic flattery in the history of first ladies, such as the concerted effort to convince the public she is a fashion icon.After becoming the national food and exercise scold, provoking vast waste and mass starvation as public school students discard the unappetizing and skimpy lunches she has forced on school cafeterias, she has now turned toward outright slander of those who...
  • Study Shows Michelle O’s Anti-Obesity Campaign Is Failing To Make Kids Any Less Obese

    It’s been more than six years since Michelle Obama kicked off her “Let’s Move!” initiative to fight against childhood obesity, and children are as overweight as ever before. That’s according to a new study published Tuesday in the journal Obesity. A team led by Duke University scientist Asheley Skinner studied data from the CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and found that the percentage of overweight and obese children between 2 and 19 years old has increased across the board since 1999. That comes as bad news for the Obama administration, which has sought to force children to...
