First Lady

Michelle Talks Body Issues

On the heels of yesterday's nutrition-oriented garden planting ceremony, First Lady Michelle Obama opened up to The New York Times on food, body issues, and her family. As for clothes, Michelle says Barack "doesn't understand fashion," and sometimes hassles her about buying new clothes. "It's like, Why don't you mind your own business?" Michelle joked. "Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet." The first lady said she is not naturally thin and has to exercise and watch what she eats. Pleated skirts hide troublesome hips, she said, and mother Marian Robinson's nightly dinner taught her the value of a balanced diet. Michelle's favorite indulgence? French fries, her "favorite food in the whole wide world."
