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.
