I know Beyonce and the first lady have this great move your body partnership/admiration for one another thing going on but the FLOTUS just took it to another level.

In the latest issue of PEOPLE which hits newsstands today, Michelle was asked by a reporter, “If you could be someone else, who would you be?” and she gave a rather interesting answer:

“Gosh. If I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé … I’d be some great singer.”

I know. Half of you are ready to gag and the other half are bouncing in their chairs with excitement. It’s a pretty polarizing statement.

For a minute I thought, well that makes sense to go from being scrutinized for everything you do as the wife of the President of the United States and having a big deal made over every little move toy make to—then I thought wait a minute, she already is Beyonce. The Bey of the White House perhaps because it ain’t easy being Beezy. The pressures on these two women is just about equal despite a huge variance in importance. More than anything though it seems Michelle wishes she had the gift of singing, perhaps like her hubby so they could do a little Al Green duet.

Anyway, in an effort to curb the Beyonce hate I won’t ask what you think about the Flotus’s answer, how about this instead: if you could be someone else, who would you be?
