As Michelle Obama prepares to make her final exit out of The White House, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon had to do a proper send off for our First Lady that included a serenade by Stevie Wonder.
“When I think about the fact that some of them are afraid about what’s to come … I don’t want them to be afraid,” Michelle says during Wednesday’s show. “I want them to embrace the future and know that the world is getting better. We have bumps in the road, we have ups and downs. But I want our kids to move forward, I don’t care where they come from, with strength and with hope.”
“I didn’t think it was going to be that emotional. It’s been surprisingly emotional for all of us in ways that we didn’t expect.” She adds.
Fallon took the time to express his thanks to our First Lady during his epic “Thank You Notes” segment.
“Thank you, Mrs. Obama, for being a smart, strong, independent woman, an activist, a style icon, and a great dancer. And showing us all what it would look like if Beyoncé had married a much nerdier Jay Z,” Fallon joked.
“That’s my boo! Mom jeans and all.” Michelle replies with laughter.

In this next video, The First Lady shares how emotional it has been to say goodbye after eight years as FLOTUS and why one of her daughters, Sasha, missed her dad’s last presidential speech.
If you’re a fan of HBO’s new show, ‘Insecure’, then you have gotten to know the funny, sassy, and overly-sexual character Molly, played by funny and adorable actress, Yvonne Orji.
First, can I just say how happy I am that ‘Insecure’ has been picked up for season 2???
Anyway, if you’re not hip to the show (as you should be), Yvonne’s character is best friends with the lead character, Issa Rae, who plays the fictional version of herself. ‘Insecure’ is based off Issa’s web series, which has garnered a lot of praise from fans and critics alike.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that Yvonne is the total opposite of her character, Molly, who seems to have trouble making the right choices with the men in her life. In real life, Yvonne is a proud virgin and confesses to have never masturbated!
Read part of her interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’
Charlamagne: In my research of you I found out you’re a virgin Yvonne: True story Charlamagne: And you a hoe on the show? Okay, not hoe… Yvonne: She not a hoe! Charlamagne: Sexually free
Charlamagne: You ever played with yourself? Yvonne: No actually I don’t. Angela Yee: You’re a masturbation virgin also? DJ Envy: You have never masturbated? You lie! Yvonne: I promise you.
Charlamagne then asks how people know she is a virgin, and Yvonne responds that it’s not something she hides.
“I don’t hide it… the same way people know somebody had a one night stand. It’s like you can say that and I can say no absolutely I haven’t.”
Watch Yvonne’s full interview below. She discusses her virginity between marks 1:30 and 8:30.
