Hands down, the United States of America has the coolest First Lady of all time!
FLOTUS Michelle Obama joined” Late Late Show” host James Corden in what was supposed to be a 1:45 tour of the White House but turned into a super dope segment of “Carpool Karaoke.”
The two start their tour driving around the White House as the First Lady’s favorite song came on; Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” The two sang their hearts out, not leaving out one word.
Michelle shares with Corden that this is maybe her second time being able to “rock out” in the passenger seat of a car in the past 7 1/2 years. The last time Obama was in the passenger seat was when he daughter Malia learned how to drive, and she said the two rocked out.
During their drive, Michelle appreciated the opportunity to take on the passenger seat and rock out to some of her favorite tunes.
If you didn’t already know, our First Lady is a huge fan of Beyoncé. Therefore she and James sang and hit all the dance moves to “Single Ladies.” First Lady made a joke referencing Beyoncé new visual album and her fan club,
“We just dropped the mic in the beehive. We were making honey in the beehive; we were making honey to put in our lemonade.”
Our FLOTUS is so down; it is going to be sad to see her go. James asked Michelle, what will she miss the most about the White House and her answer was so genuine:
“I’m going to miss the people. I mean, these are people you see every single day. They help you; they love you, you know their families. To walk away from people you see every single day; that’s gonna be hard.”
Corden also talked with Obama about the launch of her Snapchat, and why she wanted to join the snap. Michelle explains it will help promote her girl’s education initiative.
“We’re doing a really important trip to Liberia, Morocco, and Spain to highlight my initiative ‘Let Girls Learn.’ And we’re really focused on getting girls around the world educated.”
Not only did Obama launch a Snapchat to connect with our generation to promote her initiative but the charity also released a single, “This is For my Girls,” recorded by a host of female artist: Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Mońae, and Missy Elliot who magically appears in the backseat of the car, to perform her rap verse on the track. You can purchase “This is For My Girls” on iTunes.
Throwing it back to 2001, the next song that played was Missy Elliot’s “Get Your Freak On.” Missy, Michelle, and James got so hype as they rapped and turned up to this hit song. Missy had so much fun that she didn’t want to leave the car.
The Obamas are truly like no other first family. The keep up with the generations, have celebrity guests over as regular White House guest and are very in tune with pop culture. This family will be very much missed.
