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."

Whether she inspires criticism or compliments, debate over Michelle Obama's hair has not ceased in nearly a year and a half, nor is it likely to soon.

When the First Lady of the U.S. attended a country-music event in July without a single strand of hair falling below her jaw, the blogs went bonkers.

Her press secretary had to issue a statement that there was no Michelle haircut, just a new hairstyle. A summer look, simply "pinned up." Obviously.

Many dismiss attention paid to Michelle Obama's hair as mere celebrity gossip fodder, not unlike chatter over her sleeveless dresses, J. Crew cardigans, stocking-free legs or stunning decision to wear shorts to the Grand Canyon.

But for women, and African-Americans in particular, Michelle's hairstyles "command unique interest and carry cultural baggage," according to Time.

Media and pop cultural obsession with Michelle Obama's hair is nothing new.

Widespread interest in Michelle's hairstyles took hold before her husband was even elected, and the First Lady hasn't even done anything outrageous.

Heck, her new updo wasn't really all that dramatic a departure from variations we've seen on her before (the "flip-out," the "flip-under," the "helmet").

Still, her hair is now a catalyst for debate that begins purely with style but "quickly transcends appearance and ultimately transcends Michelle herself." 

Michelle Obama is, like it or not, the "preeminent African-American women's status and style symbol in terms of her beauty, acceptance and power."

All in all, we think she thrives in that weighty role. Click to enlarge the Michelle Obama pictures below and see which hairstyles you like and dislike ...
