If you could choose an occupation different from your current one, what would it be? Well according to the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama would be Beyoncé.
Yes, that is right. In an interview promoting her Reach Higher Initiative, a program used to emphasize and encourage the importance of higher education after high school, FLOTUS tells rapper Wale “I would be Beyoncé,” if another career had to be chosen. “I got the hands up!” Obama says copying the famous hand gesture in Beyonce’s popular ‘Single Ladies’ video.
In addition, Wale asks her what advice would she give to her college self. “Don’t be afraid to ask for help,” Obama says. Along with saying that StudentAid.gov is the best place to find financial aid.
Here’s a clip of the interview:
