You can now add rapping to the FLOTUS’s skills

Michelle Obama is that person you hated in school. You know, the one who could scroll right through the center of an epic food fight in the cafeteria and emerge as perfectly dressed as when she entered. She’s a Harvard trained lawyer, she married the guy who adores her beyond reason, and she wears designer clothes like a boss. She represents with grace and class, no matter what manure is thrown at her. It just slides off without leaving a mark while she smiles and glides on by.

Yup, she’s close to perfect, but who ever thought she could RAP? Why yes she can, as if you had any doubts.

In an effort o motivate more students to go college, College Humor has released their new music video Go To College. In support of this worthy effort, FLOTUS rapped a few bars about her college experience and, as they say in gymnastics, she stuck the landing.

Twitter is abuzz over this and the #FLOTUSbars hashtag has been filled with suggestions for more lyrics. Some of them are hysterical. The MarySue has compiled a list of some of the better ones, or you can check it out on Twitter.

First Lady Michelle Obama is going to be appearing in an upcoming episode of Disney Junior’s popular Doc McStuffins.

The First Lady appears as herself on the series, when a group of children visit 1600 Pennsylvania for a tour. In a clip released by Disney Junior the First Lady praises the kids for making a difference in their communities.

According to Variety, the First Lady later appoints Doc McStuffins to the position of “official toy doctor” at the White House. Talk about adorable. [Time]

I wish I’d had this type of representation on children’s shows when I was a little girl.  I’m so happy for all the little children of color who will get to witness this.  It’s so important.  Kudos to Disney and the show’s executive producers for making this happen, and a special kudos to the First Lady for agreeing to do it.

Check out the sneak peek below.

The episode is slated to air on Monday, Oct. 5 on Disney Junior.
