Michelle Obama on Swimsuit Woes, Bedtime with the President, And Wanting to be Beyoncé

Despite her widely admired bod (her arms practically have their own fan club), Michelle Obama says she doesn't relish putting on a swimsuit, which we all know is a soul-sucking experience sometimes.. In fact, she told People, she steadfastly avoids being photographed in one.

Despite her widely admired bod (her arms practically have their own fan club), Michelle Obama says she doesn't relish putting on a swimsuit, which we all know is a soul-sucking experience sometimes. In fact, she told People, she steadfastly avoids being photographed in one.

"That's been my one goal," the First Lady told the mag (according to Daily Mail). "I don't want to be caught dead in a bathing suit." Of course, with all the body snarking that goes on today we don't blame Michelle for not wanting to be photographed in such revealing attire. However, we're just going to go on the record and say we think she'd look slamming in a two piece!

As it happens, Mrs. O's personal rule is not too much an inconvenience, since the super-sporty First Lady is not much of a swimmer. "I won't drown," she said, "But you won't see me doing laps in the pool." Of course, that's probably just about the only exercise she doesn't excel at--and while her husband may be the President of the United States, MOBama says she can still kick his butt when it comes to working out. "[We don't compete at the gym] anymore, because I'm in way better shape than he is," she said.

In the interview, Michelle also confirms suspicions that she and Barack are indeed the cutest freaking couple in the universe."We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I'm usually in bed before anybody," she said. "He'll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss and we'll talk. He's like, 'Ready to be tucked?' I'm like, 'Yes I am.'' Awww....

When asked who she would be if she had to be someone else, Michelle said: "I'd be Beyoncé." Considering the pop star once penned an open letter of admiration for the First Lady, it's safe to say the feeling is mutual. Now let's all just cross our fingers for a Freaky Friday-type incident.
