Michelle Obama covers the new issue of Parade. In it, she discusses the rise and fall of her famous bangs, which became a media sensation last winter.

The reason she got rid of the trendy hairstyle, the FLOTUS says, was simple:

"You know, it's hard to make speeches with hair in your face!" Obama notes.

Bangs or no bangs, "I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman," President Barack Obama's other half admits.

"But I am constantly thinking about my own health and making sure that I'm eating right, getting exercise and watching the aches and pains."

"I want to be this really fly 80, 90-year-old."

Barack and Michelle Obama have officially made Amanda Bynes' ugly list.

“Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are ugly!” she tweeted Monday.

It's unclear why the troubled 27-year-old actress added the President and First Lady to a slew of others she’s previously labeled less than attractive.

Perhaps it dates back to April 2012, when she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after reportedly sideswiping a police car.

Obama, despite Amanda Bynes' social media pleas, did NOTHING.

Police in Georgia are investigating the toppling of a monument dedicated to one of Michelle Obama's relatives, which was knocked over outside Atlanta.

Monument to Relative

A stone monument to Michelle Obama's great-great-great-grandmother, Melvinia Shields, was pushed over and will need to be inspected for cracks.

Officials say that Shields was born into slavery in the mid-1800s and later settled in Rex, Ga., about 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.

The monument was installed a year ago as a celebration and recognition of Shields' connection to the First Lady and the White House.

It wasn't immediately clear when the monument was toppled, or who did it, or why they did it... but you can draw your own conclusions in that regard.

Like countless other dads, President Barack Obama is concerned about the fact that one day, his little girls may entertain the idea of getting a tattoo.

His plan to thwart Sasha and Malia may take the cake, though.

On Today Wednesday morning, Obama shared with Savannah Guthrie how he and the First Lady plan to respond if either girl decides to go that route ...

“What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place,'" he said.

"And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo. Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.”

Not sure about his tax plans ... but that's an awesome idea.

Living in the White House can apparently be lonely at times.

Asked in an interview about how she and President Barack Obama get daughters Malia and Sasha to eat healthy, First Lady Michelle Obama served up a gaffe.

She referred to herself as a "busy single mother."

"Believe me, as a busy single mother," Michelle Obama told Vermont CBS affiliate WCAX, before catching herself. "Or, I shouldn't say single, as a busy mother."

Wonder what Barack will have to say about this little snafu ... then again, after what he said about Kamala Harris, maybe this is just a make-up gaffe?
