The First Lady told People mag that she wouldn’t mind trading places with … Beyonce.
She also revealed that President Barack Obama doesn’t shy away from his duties as husband-in-chief — he makes sure to tuck her into bed as part of a daily ritual.
“We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I’m usually in bed before anybody,” Obama said. “He’ll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss and we’ll talk. He’s like, ‘Ready to be tucked?’ I’m like, ‘Yes I am.'”

The conversation took place while Michelle was promoting “American Grown,” her new book about the White House Kitchen Garden. Speaking of Mr. Obama, she joked about the president’s now widely-discussed penchant for singing, saying it’s sometimes hard to get him to stop.
“He loves it in the shower in the morning, sings to the kids,” she told People. “But it’s not a song. He’ll sing one line of something romantic or cute.”
She said she’s less proud of her singing ability, but admires pop star Beyonce’s gift. If you recall, this isn’t the first instance Obama and Beyonce have had nice things to say about each other in public. The singer penned an open letter praising the first lady in April following the debate over Hilary Rosen’s controversial remarks on Ann Romney. Mrs. Obama tweeted in response: “@Beyonce Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. —mo.” (The “mo” signifies that Obama, not her staff, penned the tweet.)
Oh yeah, in case you think you’re gonna ever see her bod, forget it. FLOTUS admitted to People that she’s no expert when it comes to swimming and has no desire to show off her own physique: “That’s been my one goal: I don’t want to be caught dead in a bathing suit!”
Oh would we love to see what the president sees. 🙂
