Michelle Obama, Is That You in Good Housekeeping?
The first lady sounds like herself in the interview featured in May’s Good Housekeeping, but she certainly doesn’t look like herself.
By now, we’re very familiar with the magazine industry’s addiction to photoshop (have you seen Fergie on the cover of Elle?), but did Good Housekeeping really have to do it to our first lady?
Michelle Obama graces the cover of the magazine for their May issue, celebrating their 125th anniversary. Michelle’s hair and face look like plastic, and the lighting looks very unnatural. Someone should tell Good Housekeeping that we don’t mind seeing Michelle, wrinkles and all. It would be much better than the fembot version they created.
Inside the issue, Michelle talks about life at the White House and how her family tries to keep it normal. On being a great mom, Michelle says, “It’s just that the constant worry still exists when you’re a mom that the decisions you make in your life are negatively impacting your kids. I want to make sure that [Sasha and Malia] are doing well, and that they feel like they have the love and attention they deserve from their parents, regardless of what positions we hold.”
She also adds that her husband helps her stay calm. “His temperament for the stressful part of the job is amazing,” she says. “When I’m getting antsy and frustrated and tense, I just say, ‘Talk me through it. Tell me why this is OK.’” (Access Hollywood)
