(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."

I miss the days when classy and intelligent first ladies were interviewed. MO speaks and responds to questions as if she were a 14 year old valley girl. for someone who I thought was well-educated, she certainly hides it magnificently.

Like him or not, the man does have "swag". Swag can mean a number of things. For me, it's the way a man carries himself. A proud man that walks likes he owns the world! My husband has that "swag"! After all these years, I still admire the way he carries himself! Some people mistake his "swag" for arrogance, until they get to know him. He is a hardworking, self-made individual, who simply believes in himself and his abilities.

Oh yeah he's dreamy with elephant ears and that big horse teeth smile and his blue lips. Who thinks he a sex symbol the readers of Mad Magazine and the Alfred E Newman fan club.
