Michelle Obama wants to trade places with Beyonce!

First Lady Michelle Obama says if she could be anyone else in the world it would be Beyonce! Mrs. Obama tells PEOPLE Magazine in an interview on news stands Friday, "Gosh. If I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé, I’d be some great singer. The power of music, being able to play an instrument…It looks like musicians just have the most fun."

The first lady also says the president serenades her at the White House. "Sometimes I can’t get him to stop singing. He loves it in the shower in the morning, sings to the kids. But it’s not a song. He’ll sing one line of something romantic or cute."

The interview for PEOPLE as well as several television appearances next week is an effort by Mrs. Obama to publicize her new book on The White House kitchen garden, "American Grown."

The White House says she will appear on Good Morning America, The View, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Live! with Kelly. The first lady's proceeds from the book will be donated to the National Park Foundation to be used for programs that promote healthy eating habits a pet cause of hers according to the White House.

        Why such mean comments? Is it because The Obamas are TOO SMART or they are TOO Black? You all had a change to deveop your brain to be power.....then you could have been or become President of the USA... you still have time!!!

Jealousy is unbecoming, and you are jealous because why would you make such a comment when she has done NOTHING or SAID anything about your worthless life? You are too funny....lol..lol...your mouth is probably the size of her butt...lol..lol..and you have the nerve to try and insult her...lol...lol.

    Michelle, what's wrong with Barack? Did he make you angry? Is Barack getting too close to Joe Biden when he's leading from behind?

    Michelle, this is America. With some hard work and determination you can make something of yourself.

    I'm sure when all is said and done the First Lady is happy to be who she is. She was asked a question and answered it with grace and a great compliment to all who enjoy good music...I also think she enjoys the president's playfulness.
    Must have a copy of the new book.

    She will get her wish after November 6, 2012. She can start her singing career from Chicago with full time support from Barack!!!

    Of course, they both need to take care of two girls when they have to make adjustments to school life in the Windy City.

      Another delusional and insane republican. Go get a job and stop living off my dime. All you red staters do is stay up on the message boards spreading hate and ignorance. Get off these boards disrespecting the President and First Lady, and making an arse out of yourself, and get a JOB!

      Trade her for what? That out-of-touch fat arse blonde bimbo Ann Romney....and you folks call Michelle fat? Now Ann is what you would describe as a thousand pounds overweight. Standing next to Ann, the mini van, Michelle would look like a small compact..

      Takes one to know one, and since you (ass)ume you can recognize one, then you must be one...you are insane, please seek some mental help, or at least take your meds.

    Oh, I dunno, Michelle. You seem to have a pretty cushy life in the White House: servants 24/7, personal trainers, personal wardrobe people (and unlimited money for clothes), personal hair stylist, personal manicurist/pedicurist, personal chef, personal gardener, personal dog trainer, personal jet/s, personal limo/s, expensive vacations, and much more - ALL paid for by the American taxpayer of whom you didn't seem to be all that proud before all these goodies came your way.
