First Lady Michelle Obama covers Parade Magazine’s September issue, doesn’t she look lovely? Come inside to see what she had to say about growing out her bangs, will there ever be a female president and more inside!
I so happened to be on facebook and read some of the comments that were said under Parade magazines post when they released this cover and they were not nice! The comments were brutal about this amazing lady from her foot being up on the couch in this photo and beyond. I can’t believe in 2013 people still have very ignorant things to say and full of hatred about an African American family being in the White House! All we can do is move on and live pass the hate, some people, I swear argh! I think she looks lovely and I will forever praise this couple, even if we all have different views or not, the Obamas made history, keep doing your thing guys! She makes for a great Pinktastic Saturday! To read the full interview click here.
On why she no longer sports the bangs that caused such a sensation.
You know, it’s hard to make speeches with hair in your face!
Will there be a female president in your lifetime?
Yes, I think the country is ready for it. It’s just a question of who’s the best person out there. That’s why I hope more young women start looking at opportunities to put themselves in that position, so they have the power. But it takes planning and sacrifice. It’s always harder for women, because we have kids and we’re in that constant—what did you call it?
On being fabulous no matter her age.
I am constantly thinking about my own health and making sure that I’m eating right and getting exercise and watching the aches and pains. I want to be this really fly 80-, 90-year old.
Do you think having an African-American family in the White House has moved the needle?
Absolutely. Children born in the last eight years will only know an African-American man being president of the United States. That changes the bar for all of our children, regardless of their race, their sexual orientation, their gender. It expands the scope of opportunity in their minds. And that’s where change happens. You know, laws and policies are important. But in the end, it’s how we’re living our lives.
