Beyonce wants you to "Move Your Body" and be healthy!

This remixed version of B's hit "Get Me Bodied" and accompanying video was created to benefit Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign.

The First Lady's initiative campaign to fight obesity has drawn criticism from Sarah Palin (but what hasn't). Beyonce is all for it, though.

Watch the singer break it down in a school cafeteria, wearing short shorts and knee socks and promoting healthy eating and exercise!

The video will be distributed to junior high schools across the country to, as B puts it, promote the benefits of living and eating well.

Beyonce said of the video that "What we want to do is make it fun by doing something that we all love to do, and that's dance."

Dance she will - and so will schools across the country, who will perform the dance moves during a broadcast on Tuesday, May 3!

Pretty cool, right? Between this and the release of President Obama's birth certificate, it's been a good day for the First Family.

Sigh. Sarah Palin is back in the news again.

For whatever reason, the ex-Alaska Governor took First Lady Michelle Obama and her efforts to improve childhood nutrition to task on Laura Ingraham's radio show.

We know conservatives believe in smaller government, and there are strong cases to be made for that philosophy. Attacking Michelle's nutrition initiative, though?

Sarah Palin is not a fan of Michelle Obama's anti-obesity efforts.

Of the First Lady, Palin told Ingraham that "I think she has got a different worldview and she is not hesitant at all to share what her worldview is."

As for Sarah Palin's worldview, no one can make sense of it, but she does use big words like "exceptionalism" in the rant against Michelle below:

The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, also became the unofficial First Lady of Fashion when husband Barack became president in January.

In a new interview with Women’s Health, she reveals not only why she takes her own health (not just universal health care) seriously, but also her style.

“My father had multiple sclerosis, so I never took health for granted, because I saw a father that at the prime of his life was struck with an illness that completely changed everything in his life,” Michelle Obama told the publication.

She says she values both diet and exercise, even if she has a soft spot for fast food. As a child, she said, going to McDonald's with her family was a treat.

The First Lady maintains her figure by eating in moderation.

“We couldn’t afford to go out to dinner, so [it] was a rare treat," Michelle said. "We had theater class on Saturdays, and [afterward] if Dad turned left we were going to McDonald’s, and if he turned right we were going home."

"We’d always go, “Go left, Dad! Go left!”

He rarely did, and she says that was a good lesson.

“Those values - even though they were the result of economic circumstances - were really good, and created some healthy boundaries about food.”

Not that she doesn’t love the occasional diet-breaker.

“I do love a good burger and fries. French fries are my favorite food in the whole world. If I could, I’d eat them at every meal - but I can’t," she says.

"My whole thing is moderation. If I make good, healthy choices for me and for the family most of the time, having what I love once in a while won’t hurt.”

The Obamas eat dinner as a family almost every night, Michelle says, noting that they make time for that whenever they are able, even if things are busy.

As far as Michelle Obama's hairstyles and fashion choices, the First Lady says.

“For me fashion is fun, it’s supposed to help you feel good about yourself."

"That’s how women should focus: what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful. I wear what I love. Sometimes people like it, sometimes they don’t."

"I’m fine with that.”
