(Newser) – Michelle Obama was on Entertainment Tonight last night—so, needless to say, the interview covered such hard-hitting topics as her husband's "swag" and her bangs, Mediaite reports. Asked what it's like to be married to a "sex symbol," Obama replied of her husband, "He's got a little swag, you know. That's OK. I mean, I'm proud of him. He's a stylish, I think, man who is healthy and he's smart and he's passionate and he's inspiring. And who wouldn't fall in love with that, you know?"

She wasn't so positive on the subject of her bangs, admitting it might not have been her best decision. "It's fun but you know, I'm like a girl, what's next?" she said. "We take it day by day. The bangs are a day-by-day proposition. They're starting to grow out, getting a little irritating, but it's OK. It's OK. We'll be good."
