Michelle Obama Says 'Never Say Never' To Plastic Surgery
First Lady Michelle Obama, who will be turning 50 on Friday, admitted that it’s too early for her to tell whether or not plastic surgery will be in her future.
Michelle Obama Won't Rule Out Botox
When asked about plastic surgery and botox, Obama claimed she’s leaning towards aging gracefully – but said she couldn’t give a definite answer. “Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves," she told People magazine for an upcoming issue. "Right now, I don’t imagine that I would go that route, but I’ve also learned to never say never.”
During her tenure at the White House, one of the First Lady’s focuses has been teaching children the importance of exercise and eating well. Leading by example, Obama maintains a healthy lifestyle that’s sure to keep her looking younger than her years.
"I don't obsess about what I eat, but I do make sure that I'm eating vegetables and fruit," Obama said. "And as everyone knows, I do exercise."
Valerie Jarrett, the First Lady’s good friend and advisor, believes that she’s in a good place and serves as the best kind of role model for her fellow parents.
“She’s at the top of her game. She’s fabulous at 50,” Jarrett told The Washington Post. “She and her husband are role models for parents all across the country. She shows that it’s hard work. It’s not something that you can be passive about. It takes a lot of energy and devotion.”
The First Lady's Post White House Plans
When Obama leaves the White House with her husband and two daughters – Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12 – she plans on leveraging her notoriety as a former First Lady into promoting causes that are important to her.
“I will be in my early 50s when I leave here, and I have so much more that I should do,” Obama told People. “I don’t have the right to just sit on my talents or blessings. I’ve got to keep figuring out ways to have an impact — whether as a mother or as a professional or as a mentor to other kids.”
Eventually, Obama’s aspiration is to be like her mother, Marian Shields Robinson. “She speaks her mind,” Obama said in praise. “She does exactly what she wants to do every single day without apology. I’m not there yet, but I look forward to that.”
The First Lady is also likely looking forward to her 50th birthday bash, which her husband President Barack Obama is throwing for her on Saturday night. Plenty of food and dancing is reportedly on the agenda.
