MSM swoons uncontrollably in 3… 2… 1.

Via Politico:

First Lady Michelle Obama is chalking up her new haircut to…a mid-life crisis.

“This is my mid-life crisis, the bangs,” Obama said of the style in an interview with TV show host Rachael Ray. “I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”

A full interview with the First Lady, via Skype, will air Wednesday on the “Rachael Ray Show,” according to a release sent to POLITICO.

Obama, who sported new bangs to inaugural activities, has earned both praise and disdain for the style. But she has at least one powerful champion of the look.
