First Lady Michelle Obama sat down with rapper Wale for a rapid-fire interview last week in which she revealed what she’d choose to do if she wasn’t the president’s wife.
“I would be Beyoncé,” Obama told Wale in the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it interview. “I’ve got the hands!”
The interview was filmed after last week’s Beating the Odds summit at which the First Lady invited more than 100 college-bound students to celebrate their achievements and hear from a number of guest speakers. Wale spoke at the event.
Of course, the Obamas have long admired Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z.
Beyoncé performed at Obama’s inauguration in 2009 and attended Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party along with her husband last year. Bey and Jay have visited the White House numerous times and were photographed in the Situation Room in 2010.
In turn, Jay-Z and his wife hosted the Obamas for a presidential fundraiser at the rapper’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan in 2012.
“Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent,” Obama reportedly said at the time.
The First Lady also apparently listens to Beyoncé’s music during her workouts.
“I always love Beyoncé, so anything fast-paced that she’s doing is a good one for me,” Michelle Obama said in 2011.
