First Lady Michelle Obama cemented her status as one of the coolest FLOTUS by appearing on the Ryan Seacrest radio show Thursday morning.
Wearing A Diane Von Furstenberg blue and white wrap around dress, she talked about working out, music and watching Scandal, the TV show about White House politics.
“I hadn’t watched it until this past vacation and we went to Hawaii… so [we] had a long flight [and] I watched all the seasons … I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun,” Mrs. Obama told Ryan.
During the early morning interview she also jammed to Pharrell’s “Happy,” and revealed that if she auditioned for American Idol, she would have to sing Stevie Wonder’s “You Are The Sunshine of My Life.”
The 50-year-old first lady, who launched the initiative “Let’s Move” to stop childhood obesity, says she and the president like to “lead by example” for their two daughters 15-year-old Malia and 12-year-old Sasha.
“We eat dinner together every night and we rarely miss that, even with his schedule, and we spend a lot of time talking about the issues of the day, but we talk about what we’re eating and why we’re eating it. We have a lot of, ‘Finish your vegetables’ conversations,” she says, adding the she and Barack Obama work out together every morning.
Michelle Obama is definitely the kind of woman I’d like to be friends with!
