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.


Ellen brings on The First Lady as her first ever co-host on her daytime talk show. We already know how down-to-earth Michelle is, but we didn’t expect how fun she could be, as well. The First lady looked stunning as Ellen’s co-host, rocking a beautiful dress by Gucci.

As co-host, Michelle not only chats with special guests, she shares her experience as The First Lady.

 “The girls have grown up in the White House. I mean, the staff that’s there, we see them every day. These are people who have helped us raise our kids. They’ve loved us, they’ve taken care of us,” Michelle says.  “I’m proud of them they’ve really managed this so well,” she said. “I mean, I just love them to death and the big thing I’ve always worried about was making sure that they got out of this whole. I’m just proud that they are poised, smart, intelligent young women.”

It was an honor to take on the job,“ she says. I wasn’t the political spouse. I was very hesitant about this, but it’s truly been an honor to serve, to travel this country, to meet so many great people”.
In this episode, Michelle and Ellen chats with Golden State Warriors player, Stephen Curry. Michelle gives Steph some pointers on playing better golf with her husband, the POTUS. They’ve also debuted a brand new game!

Actor Bradley Cooper stopped by, as well!

Malia Obama has the internet and the media buzzing!

You’d think a teenage girl, dancing and having fun at ‘Lollapalooza’ is not much news, but because it’s the president’s daughter, people have judgemental things to say.

In case you’re wondering what ‘Lollapalooza’ is, it’s an annual music festival that was held in Chicago over the weekend. One of the first daughters, Malia Obama, and what appeared to be a group of her friends, were dancing to music by Bryson Tiller. It’s the typical scene at a music festival that plays everything from rock to hip-hop!

#maliaobama seen at #lollapalooza, gettin’ her teenage life!

Some of you folks are out here, judging this girl like did the unthinkable. She’s judged like she ran across the ‘Lollapalooza’ stage butt-naked with a football helmet and snow boots on, holding a Hennesy bottle in one hand and some weed in the other!

I’m wondering why you all have a hard time accepting the fact that Malia Obama is a care-free teenager who does what teenagers do. This young lady has no obligation to you and she is not here to conform to your expectations of her. Since her dad has been president, Malia and her sister, Sasha, has done nothing but exhibit generous amounts of decorum and intelligence. Even as little girls, they’ve displayed behavior that would impress The Queen of England!

The Obamas has done a great job in raising their daughters while some of your daughters are doing twerk videos for Instagram. Go check on her raattt naawwwwww!!!

Don’t let me get petty and remind y’all of the Bush daughters who were wildin’ out on booze during their dad’s term.

 

Oops! Too late!

 

As a result of the backlash Malia has faced from the internet and media, Twitter created the hashtag, #LetMaliaLive. The girl has done nothing wrong!

She’s a young lady who is celebrating her independence away from The White House. Don’t criticize her for it!

 

Our ever-so-graceful Fist Lady, Michelle Obama, gave such an electrifying and emotional speech at the first night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention. She talked raising her daughters under the spotlight of the White House and why America should vote for Hillary Clinton. Throughout her speech, The First Lady’s classiness shines brightly inside the Wells Fargo Center, as she shares the solutions she envisions for this country, which  highlights her graceful shade without mentioning the name Donald Trump.

Press play below for the entire speech.

On a recent episode of ‘The Late Late Show’ with James Corden, James’ White House tour takes an unexpected turn when our First Lady, Michelle Obama, joins him for a drive around the grounds. During the drive, they sang Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé, and the girl power anthem, “This is For My Girls” with Surprise guest Missy Elliott. Press play below!

First Lady, Michelle Obama, sat down with Oprah Winfrey for the first White House United States of Women Summit, which was live-streamed.

Michelle shared with Oprah and the largely female crowd about her life as First Lady of the United States. They’ve also discussed self-worth, motherhood, “haters”, ummn ummn ummn moments like Prince and Stevie Wonder performing in the White House , visitors to the White House, shopping, and President Obama’s “swag”.

It was a delightful interview which felt like we were listening to two girlfriends chat.

Our First Lady, Michelle Obama is just too kool for words. What other First Lady do YOU know, will enlist some of our favorite entertainers for a female anthem???

With the help of Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monae, Lea Michele, Chloe x, Halle  Jada Grace, and songwriter Diane Warren, the charity anthem”This is For My Girls”,  will instill empowerment and encouragement in girls and young women all over the world! The anthem hits radio airwaves on Tuesday ahead of Obama’s scheduled keynote at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday.

“It’s kind of like ‘We Are the World’ meets ‘Lady Marmalade’ with these strong voices and strong women,” Warren told Billboard in an exclusive interview soon after the song’s radio release. “When was the last time you heard a song like this or a record that had this many amazing divas on it? I’m really proud.

 

The song, executive-produced by AOL’s inspirational women’s website MAKERS.com, will be available for sale only on iTunes starting at midnight on Wednesday to benefit the White House’s Let Girls Learn campaign and the estimated 62 million girls globally without access to education. All proceeds will go to the Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund because the featured artists all waived royalties and fees.

 

Speaking of Michelle, she can definitely add “HAWT MODEL” to her “resume”. The Verge recently featured the First Lady for an exclusive. Check out her awesome photos!

In celebration of Black History Month, Our First Lady, Michelle Obama, hosted Dance At The White House, a special workshop where iconic dancers teach kids dance lessons.

 

Debbie Allen, legendary choreographer and my second auntie in my head (Patti is the 1st), was there with her kids, doing what they do best, accompanied by African drummers. Those beautiful little ladies were puttin’ in WORK!

Hip-Hop choreographer, Fatima Robinson, Alvin Ailey’s Judith Jameson, and Dance Theater of Harlem’s Virginia Johnson were also in attendance. Fatima has a lot of other great things going. Take a read about it here . 

The First Lady also moderated a panel discussion with the iconic dancers and an audience Q&A session with Washington, DC dance students. The students were given the exclusive opportunity to not only learn from the choreographers, they were also a part of dance workshops where they learned from the iconic dancers, themselves.

Those Obamas are really showing off in The White House for Black History Month!
First Beyonce, then Kendrick, then fierce little black girls with some of the BADDEST black women in dance, doing what they do best AT 1600 Pennslyvania Ave. We’ll never see that many black folks in The White House like this for a very long time.

This piece is definitely befitting for Black History Month, and I just cannot do a Throwback Thursday without writing about this special moment between this Super couple. It was 2008 when Barack Obama made history becoming our first black president. The Neighbors Ball on ABC was in full effect with some of our biggest stars in music and films, celebrating our new first couple. This special dance was Barack and Michelle Obama’s first dance as the President Of The United States and The First Lady. It was such a beautiful but pivotal moment in black history…a moment we’ll never forget!
