(Newser) – Who would Michelle Obama be if she could be someone else? Beyoncé. Just one problem: The first lady can't sing. "Gosh, if I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé. I’d be some great singer,” she reveals in an interview with People magazine set to hit newsstands today. "The power of music, being able to play an instrument ... it looks like musicians just have the most fun." It's a mutual admiration society as far as Beyoncé is concerned. “I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to,” Beyoncé wrote to Michelle last month, calling her “the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman.”

Sure Obama could deal with the sudden change in his wife,then he would be sleeping with beyonce? Maybe she is just not happy with her self.Wanting to be someone else.Sounds strange from a first lady about wanting to be a singer.Well? interesting statement,she just admitted she does not want to be the first lady of the White House over this country.Goodbye! maybe hollywood will take her and Obama.

I like those comments where Barry would like the same thing. He'd really appreciate the fact Michelle could not only sing but LOOK GOOD too. Yep ol Barry Obama would give that suggestion a 'thumbs up' alright. LOL
