If you've spent any time on Facebook or Twitter in the past few weeks, you may have seen the below meme making the rounds.

Michelle Obama, Jackie Kennedy Meme

Originally posted by right wing website Human Events, the superimposed images of Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Obama are meant to serve as a dig at our current First Lady.

While the makers of the meme obviously have no problem with the idea of offending modern Democrats, the photo has mainly come under attack mainly for apolitical reasons, as social media users on both sides of the aisle are decrying it as an abhorrent piece of racist propaganda. 

First lady historian Katherine Jellison sees the image as having far more to do with American attitudes toward race than with any sort of political divide:

You may want to sit down for this: Joan Rivers made some offensive comments while promoting her new book.

The comedy legend, of course, has been shocking fans for weeks during one of the most bizarre press tours in recent memory.

Highlights (or lowlights, depending on whom you ask) include: Rivers accusing Miley Cyrus of incest, suggesting that Kim Kardashian has had sex with millions of men, and implying that Kristen Stewart slept her way to the top.

While it may not seem possible, Rivers actually topped herself earlier this week.

In addition to storming out of a CNN interview, Joan made some comments about President Obama and his wife that have many in the LGBT community demanding an apology:

Ah, moms. Givers of life. Wipers of noses. Kissers of boo-boos. Today is your day. Happy Mother's Day!

It's your day to be pampered and praised with flowers, breakfast in bed, and most importantly ... NO CLEANING!

Okay, so for some moms, that sort of thing might happen every day. Like the celebrity moms who have live-in nannies and chefs and housekeepers and stylists on call and personal assistants to keep all those appointments straight. 

But having all that help doesn't make them any less of a mom than the moms who don't have those things, so today we celebrate them, too.

From Beyonce to Gisele, here are 15 celebrity moms we love!

Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera has two kids. She gave birth to her second in August 2014.

Three weeks ago, 257 young girls were kidnapped from their school in eastern Nigeria.

Since then, thousands of Twitter followers have joined the campaign to have the girls safely returned to their homes, making the hashtag "BringBackOurGirls a worldwide trending topic.

Michelle Obama: Bring Back Our Girls

Now the movement has its most powerful follower to date, as  Michelle Obama has joined the fight.

The First Lady tweeted the above photo recently, along with the caption, "Our prayers are with the missing Nigerian girls and their families."

Michelle Obama joined Instagram last year and has spoken publicly about the important role played by social media in activist and grass roots political campaigns.

It's not what you know, it's who you know when looking for a job, as the old saying goes. One enterprising young girl took her job request all the way to the First Lady yesterday.

During a visit for the annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, Charlotte Bell, 10 years old, gave Michelle Obama her father's resume telling the FLOTUS that her dad had been unemployed for three years.

Michelle Obama, poised and obviously moved, gave the girl a hug.

When the girl returned to her seat, Michelle Obama addressed the audience saying, “Well, it’s a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad, right?”

There once was a time when future heart throbs were a little dorky, would-be supermodels a tad awkward, and even the Kardashians were just regular kids.

Heck, even Justin Bieber was a kid once ... instead of a punk a-- kid.

Ever wonder what your favorite stars (and Kim Kardashian for that matter) looked like long before they became the people that dominated your Facebook feed?

Wonder no longer, THGers. We've got you covered and then some!

Some aged better than others, and some certainly looked more like their adult selves from a very early stage, but all were pretty darn adorable.

We already know Michelle Obama can dance.

But will she be shaking it to the country music stylings of Rayna James on Nashville next month?

That much is unclear, but TV Fanatic has confirmed that the First Lady will guest star on the May 7 episode of this ABC drama, coming on board as herself for an installment that features a charity concert at Army base Fort Campbell in Kentucky.

Kellie Pickler will also appear on this episode.

Obama, Michelle

Obama will also be seen on this Thursday's season finale of Parks and Recreation and has recently stopped by iCarly, Sesame Street and The Biggest Loser.

She remains intent on promoting nutrition and physical well-being for her Let's Move! initiative.

Sick of your mom nagging you to register for health insurance before the March 31 deadline? Well, Michelle Obama and other celebrity moms are here to do it instead!

The First Lady called upon the mothers of Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Jonah Hill and Adam Levine to remind people of the Obamacare registration deadline.

Fun trivia from the "I Luh Ya PaPi" video vixen's mom, Guadalupe: "Jennifer walked at eight months. She was climbing out of her crib when she was a year old."

"At one point, I thought, 'Maybe she should be a gymnast.'"

And this from The Wolf of Wall Street star Jonah Hill's mother, Sharon Feldstein: "Jonah was a prankster ... Jonah flooded the elementary school."

The point? Moms put up with a lot of nonsense from their kids, which is inevitable, but being uninsured shouldn't be one of the things they worry about.
