Michelle Obama on Beyonce: “She’s just a low-key lady – we have a lot in common”

The First Lady of the United States has a lot of love for the 'Lemonade' singer

Michelle Obama has spoken of her love for Beyonce during an interview on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The First Lady of the United States recently sang along to Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ during her appearance on Carpool Karaoke. Beyonce also escorted Malia Obama to the Made in America Festival earlier this month (September 3).

When asked on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert about who she’d like to live on a desert island with, Michelle Obama responded with “Beyoncé.” “Wait can I change to Beyoncé?” Colbert asked after he himself chose President Obama. “Nope, she’s mine,” Mrs. Obama said.


Continuing to speak of the singer, The First Lady said, “She’s a special person. She’s a sweetheart. She’s smart, she’s creative, she’s a great mother, she loves her family. She’s just a low-key lady — we have a lot in common that way. Except I can’t sing … I can’t dance.”

The interview then focused on what President of the United States Barack Obama is like at the dinner table. Mrs. Obama responded, “Malia will usually ask the serious question, ‘Dad tell us about your day? What about that conversation about global warning?'”

Michelle Obama then mimicked Barack Obama, saying, “That’s a good question. Let me answer that in three points. One, then One A, then One B.” She continued, “And Sasha and I are like ‘ugh’, because Sasha and I just want to talk about our favorite song on Lemonade.”
