Friday Tidbits

First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to third graders at a D.C. public school this week looking fab in a polka dotted dress.  And model Iman told Parade mag about the beauty of our First Lady--and she says it's great in its own way:
"Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty. But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age.”
Um, if "downhill" is what Michelle or Iman looks like, I'm putting on my skis to go faster... And in other news:

WHY is Jamie Foxx's jacket so damn tight???  He was spotted leaving Mr. Chow last night looking like he was hiding food under his jacket.  What's really hood?

Remember Laz Alonzo?  He was spotted out getting yogurt in L.A. yesterday.  Still a cutie. More pics of Mrs. Obama when you read the rest...

Loves it.

WomanSoul: Uh… Co-founder

WomanSoul: Uh… Co-founder of NARAL, Founder of the Children’s Defense League, the most active First Ladies since Eleanor Roosevelt, 2-term senator from NY state, winner of the popular Democratic primaries (Obama did not get 18 million votes, she DID) AND NOW Secretary of State?Hillary put them Wellsey & Yale brains to WORK. And she was First Lady for 8 YEARS. Michelle has been First Lady for 100+ DAYS. Give her time, we all know that this is not all Mrs. Obama is capable of, so relax. I (as well as other on here) know that she will show up and show out. And do you really know ALL that she is doing that's not being photographed for the general public? I know I don't so I won't make the assumption that reading to kids is all that she does. And what in the HELL is wrong with her doing that!? She clearly enjoys it, as do the children. Who knows what conversations she is having with those children and the seeds that are being planted in them. In reality our generation has had their time, there is not much we can do to save this planet that WE have taken abused and taken advantage of. We have nothing to do but look to the future generations and instill in them good values and morals so that we DON'T have a president as selfish and inconsiderate as Bush was to this nation. (Even Clinton, sorry to say, but he's the one who started the trend of sending our U.S. jobs overseas because it was cheaper. In turn causing MANY U.S. Citizens to become unemployed) I agree we need to be ever critical of our leaders because we are the people that elected them into these positions but please be REALISTIC. Hillary did a great job as a First Lady ("It takes a village" is one of many ideas that pushed me to study Education on a grad level) but Mrs. Clinton had 8 years, which is about 2,920 days, compared to Michelle's 100+ days. That information alone is enough invalidate any of your arguments. When Michelle has 2,920 days in office THEN we can intelligently have this debate/argument. You all stay blessed.

It seems as if no one

It seems as if no one understood what Iman was saying, she said Michelle is not a great beauty and that great beauty has no where to go but down, but she said Michelle's beauty goes farther and will only get better with age. Maybe you should slow down a bit and read what is being said completely before you use your mouth to speak negatively about another black woman.

TiaMia: African females

TiaMia: African females (ethiopians, somalians, whatever) think they are better than black american women. My sister use to be cool with one (Ethiopian) until she started making little sly comments about how she thinks black americans and Africans should stick to their own race. She didn’t like that her ex-boyfriend was dating an American black woman and was calling her alot of names my sister took offense to. Anyway never thought Iman was that cute and she has nothing on Michelle O. When will people realize that looks fade. Ok, That is exactly what Iman was saying, is that looks fade. She was actually downing herself, if anyone cared to read into the comment. It is better to be known for intelligence than beauty...because the beauty fades as opposed to wisdom increasing. I get that. Mrs. Obama is not a classic beauty...and I understood what Iman was saying. But shame on you black women for downing another black woman for her comments. SMH at the crab in the barrel mentality....This whole "THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE" attitude really pisses me off. And since you all want to down Iman so quickly, why don't you look to the real arbiters of black beauty these days...the videos and ho mags and other bs...black america has never exactly embraced a woman of darker skin as being beautiful....yeah, i said it so deal with it. Michelle is not just breaking barriers in white america, let me tell you!

mkay, so iman sounds like she

mkay, so iman sounds like she has some jealousy for michelle. what i can say for our first lady is that she is intelligent, beautiful, witty, sensitive, and married to the president of the united states of america. what i can say for iman is that she is a used-to be-model from back in the day and is now hawking gaudy jewelry and fashions on home shopping. oh, and if iman really knew anything, she would know that jealousy is never a good look on anyone. used to like iman, but i cannot abide people who hand out backhanded compliments. she's insincere.

I am an Eritrean American women and I dont agree with ur comment for one I look like any other black female and so there is absolutely no reason to believe myself to be better than another. How can u say that African women feel like they are better than African American women. Do u see how stupid it sounds to white ppl we are all just African(black) and b/c of ppl like u who put negative connotations on specific groups of ppl the black community continues to hate one another. I will mos def say that i never thought Iman was the least bit attractive, quite frankly I think that she is very unattractive however I always respected her career and how far she's come. Now Michelle Obama mite not be the worlds most beautiful woman but she most certainly is attractive. And the more exposure u have to her the better she gets.

Dee: I think there are most

Dee: I think there are most definitely some posers on this site. But that’s okay. They feel threatened. And they should. Mrs. Obama is dangerous to them in that she represents everything beautiful and positive that the black woman is supposedly not. But she is an examplein everyway. She has alwayss looked presentable as she should, worked hard to get her higher education and move up aggressively in her profession. All while being a lady, a great mother, and super loving and supportive wife. ALLLLLL the things every woman wants to be. She takes care of herself physically. You cannot find a fault with this woman. No human is perfect but she almost makes it look possible. So whomever wants to find fault with her so early in the game is SIMPLY angry, hateful, and there is nothing that could be done to please that person. So they should be ignored. They offer nothing resembling a solution. They should be reguarded as INVISIBLE. The Obamas are beautiful and we can all learn from the poise they display, even as the world constanly criticizes and although many hope they fail. They will not because they are making the right moves. Stocks are rallying, jobless claims reached their peak a month ago and have not gone up– which is normally an indication that a recession is close to bottoming out. Obama is proposing major policy changes for corporaten taxes, a gov’t healthcare entity to compete/supplement private insurers, he’s focused on education reform. Find fault with these actions and I will find a useless hater in YOU! SPEAK!!!!!!!

WTF??? Iman needs to shut the

WTF??? Iman needs to shut the F up!! Iman should be the last person to talk about beauty. Her current face is pure plastic and maybe that is one of the reasons why she would never live in her homeland because her face might melt in the heat. I think Michelle is very beautiful and much, much, much better looking than Iman in her hey day. The thing is Michelle doesn't pile on makeup like Iman, Tyra and other stars and she's a natural beauty.

oh iman, what a stupid thing

Why does the first lady need to be a great beauty? for what reason? iman has one of the most unique faces in modelling and cos of iman there are many other black models, but that comment bout the first lady is just stupid What has Iman ever done for black people? or Somali people for that matter? In Somali girls are getting their pu$$y cut, what the h3ll has iman ever done about that?? thats the problem with these models make money out of their looks they forget about their brains and how the people are suffering in their homeland (somalia) At least michelle is using her brains thats one thing you have missing iman

I don't care what anybody

I don't care what anybody says. Most people at first glance of Michelle Obama said similar things about her, she looks hard not the most attractive woman but she is extremely accomplished and intelligent. It was in extremely poor taste for Iman to say what she said and unnecessary. She could have just said that Michelle Obama has a unique look and will just get better with time and talked about how her inner beauty shines through. The fact is I did not think she was terribly attractive at first but she has definitely grown on me in the looks department. She takes care of herself and it shows. She has stepped her game up with the hair make-up and clothes.She is the snazziest first lady we've had since Jackie O, although they are totally different. More than that I am just flat out proud that she is a woman of humble beginnings that did very well for herself. She represents. Everybody won't be a "great beauty" that is fine because beauty like that is fleeting and is empty without a personality or intelligence. Point is Iman should not have said it but I think it was a honest assessment. Sorry

I can't believe most of the

I can't believe most of the readers of YBF just don't get it. What Iman was saying is that Michelle Obama is no great beauty and neither is she (Iman). Being so called "pretty" or "beautiful" fades over time. Think about many celebrities who were beautiful during their youth but look a mess as they've aged. Internal beauty and physical qualities that don't fit the traditional standards (European) are frowned upon but here we have two BEAUTIFUL women that don't fit the mold yet they are aging gracefully and improving with age. Now, if I can only be so lucky to look like Iman and Mrs. Obama at their age I would feel blessed.

WomanSoul: But her husband

WomanSoul: But her husband has done NOTHING to help them. Where is the financial aid to soldiers & their families losing their homes in the foreclosure crisis?Where is the help for vets who come back home with limbs blown off & have to STILL PAY for pain medicine?That is WRONG on all counts & Obama is not working the way he should about this.Anyway - I don’t praise or admire politicians based on color, but on merit, and President Obama has YET to impress me.Hell, Jesse Jackson has done a lot more for us than Obama at this point.And Obama’s PRESIDENT.I still got hope for Michelle though, but unfortunately, I’ve lost it on her huzz-band. Wow- The situation was messed up from the start. he didnt start this ish, Bush did.. remember. Bush sent soldiers to fight in the first place. Shit is messed up yo.. Pres O is working hard to fix it, but some thangs take time. I think he's done alot in such a short time, being that bush f*&ked up sooooooo much during his time.

I've read some of the

I've read some of the comments and the First lady can do whatever she wants with her time, if anything at all because she wasn't elected to do anything. All of the things First ladies do are what's done "traditionally". Traditions can be broken you know, it's not written in stone, the constitution, or by GOD. Besides, this is her first year participating in this "tradition" and she's only been participating for 4 mths. There's plenty of time for her to adjust and do other things. Hell I hope whatever she does whether it's reading books to children, planting gardens,education etc I hope she enjoy doing these things. All of the stay at home moms in America what are they doing outside of their home? Certainly aren't raising their children especially the one's in the upper class because they have the Nanny/Nannies to do that. Most are getting Botoxed, face lifts, spending their husbands money, and oh yeah some contribute to charity but that is just to help boost their social status within their community. Baking cookies and distributing them to people in "your" neiborhood don't count either going outside of your neighborhood might help. The people in here complaing, what are you doing for the country or your community? If you live in a really good comm u should go to a place where the people aren't doing so good and uplift these people by building a educational center or something. The First lady said she has a CAUSE and that's working with military families now just because you may not like her cause doesn't mean she should change her cause and it certainly doesn't mean that the cause isn't important. Give this woman time I'm sure she will be engaged in many things, I only hope she does what she truly enjoys and is passionate about because don't forget she wasn't ELECTED to do ANYTHING and can choose to do NOTHING if SHE wanted to. I'm so glad that she won't see any of these ridiculous things and other ridiculous things that are written about her on blogs,nevertheless "Hello First lady".

@ Woman Soul, You obviously

@ Woman Soul, You obviously know nothing about our FLOTUS, Mihelle Obama. While it is true that Hillary Clinton fought hard for heathcare, womens rights&childrens rights&Eleanor Roosevelt championed human rights. Michelle has stood on her own B4 she even met President Obama. For example, Michelle was a servant in her community. She served as assistant commissioner of planning and development in Chicago's City Hall before becoming the founding executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an AmeriCorps program that prepares youth for public service. In 1996, Michelle joined the Univ of Chicago where she brought the community together. As associate dean of student services, she develooped the university's first community service program and under the leadership as vice president of community and external affairs for the Univ of Chic Medical Center; because of her efforts, volunteerism went through the roof! Our FLOTUS plans to continue her work on issues that are very important to her. And, they are supporting military families, helping working women balance carer and family,and working to help national service. So, what you talking about? Yes, the media has often compared her to JKO, but the media has always been biased and had double standards when it comes to women in powerful positions. They never talk about what type of suit the president wears or what color tie he is rocking on that particular day. But, a woman gets heavily scrutinized by the media alot more. Especially if she is a highly educated, intellingent, beautiful, SMART (as you say) BLACK Woman!If they did it to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, what do you think they were going to do to our FLOTUS? You said that you think our FLOTUS can do a 1000% more? She is a Mother and Wife first. Her husband has been POTUS for 100+ days. Any SMART woman would take care of her husband and children First! The previous Bush Administration has done so much harm to our country that it will take years to get this country back on track. He is not a miracle worker. He hasnot been in office that long. BTW: President Obama is working on the military family issues as we speak. You spoke about Financial Aid to military families losing their homes? Many Americans are losing their homes in foreclosure. This a NATIONAL problem! Legislation is being written as we speak to address this. It has not been made into law yet. VA counselors may be able to help the soliders with their previous loans during the subprime crisis; even if it is not a VA Loan. The VA Loan Limits will be increased as well. This will help alot. President Obama is doing a great job for the short time he has been in office and inherited a crapload of issues left by the previous administration. I am not sure what clock you are looking at but how fast do you expect Mrs. Obama's huzz-band to fix these things? 8 years is a long time to eff up a country, dont you think? You think 100+ days can fix everything? You also mentioned Jesse Jackson. I have nothing against him, but he sure put a bad taste in alot of african americans mouths about how he acted during the presidential primaries. Calling then Senator Obama(at that time before he won the nomination) names on national tv thinking that the mike was off. WTF? Talk about crabs in the bucket mentality! What is wrong with reading books to children? The FLOTUS has two beautiful princesses and she loves children. She is letting us know what her concerns will be for our country. Military families, childrens rights and education. Reading is fundamental, ya know? And, The FLOTUS is an attorney. She has alot of power and WILL put her powerful issues in motion. Trust. Oh, and her "huzz-band" has alot of wonderful things he is going to do for our African American Men and parents who do not support their children. It's called "Child Support issues" and overhauling the Judicial System for men and women locked up in prison. But, I don't know how fast he can do all these things. He is only one man. He is not perfect. Lastly, I don't know if you have children or if you are married, but balancing children, a husband who is POTUS& trying to Rep your country as the FLOTUS is no easy task to fill. Yes she is SMART&doing Red carpet events are part of a FLOTUS' job. She is expected to appear at certain social events. So what? Your expectations of the POTUS and FLOTUS are unrealistic and the Bush Administration has not done in 8 years what the President and First Lady Obama have done in a few months! This is a historical moment right now and Many of us are So proud of President and Mrs. Barack Obama! Peace...

Shamrock: What can anyone

Shamrock: What can anyone do in 100+7 days? See the problem is we are trying to make the Obama administration Jesus and the 12 disciples. Most soldiers are getting money with the new Pell grant and Stafford loan monies that the Obama admin has set up. This is in addition to their GI Bill.Also those vets who are in trouble, he just set up new standards for VA loans so they can refinance at very low rates. The medication may not be free, but guess what now that most of them are disabled in some capacity they are qualified for vocational rehabilitation that will give them a free ride at just about any college. It pays for them to attend school plus it provides extra funds for everyone depending on the size of the family every month. They can go all the way up to receiving a Doctorate on the government’s dime. Name one thing that Jesse J. does besides trying to make him look good to the media, He needs to go be a father to his illegitimate daughter and be an example of a real man.Woman Soul I suggest you go do your research, or tell the people at FOX to come harder the next time. Co-Sign Thank you for putting that out there

Devonne: The First Lady has

Devonne: The First Lady has promoted growing our own fruits and vegetables in a country that is in a recession yet is inhabited by some of the fattest people on the planet. She has promoted planting trees as a way to promote a healthy earthly environment, in a country that puts out more toxic emissions than just about any other place on earth. She did this on Earth Day. She has publicly promoted the families of our soldiers and made this her call as First Lady. Mrs. Obama has also made education a priority and I am highly impressed by the interaction she commits to the children and their education. She is also a mother with two young and very impressionable young girls who demand her attention as they go through puberty and a wife. And to some Black Women, she still isn’t doing enough. You ought to be ashamed of your selves. We have a hard enough row to hoe as it is without us being our own thorns and stones in the path. This isn’t about criticism. This is picking at and on the First Lady and it is really becoming annoying four months in. Ya’ll need to check your self and support this Sister instead of diminishing how she chooses to represent as First Lady. She is respected and admired all over the globe but leave it to some Black Women, with their simple and petty azzes, to focus on her looks and diminish what she is doing with the children and for our country. I'm not diminishing Michelle - NEVER WOULD - but I expect MORE from her and her husband with Princeton & Harvard Educations AND as President & First Lady!! We need to challenge and critique our leaders - otherwise we end up with mediocre has-been wannabes that do NOTHING for our country. I like Michelle a lot more than Barack. She seems to have more of a Black identity than her husband ever will. She has the backbone & background that can really make an impact in this country. Barack's always playing nice with Republicans too much too my comfort. Whatever. I'm done. God bless you all & thank you for allowing me to rant. Michelle, don't waste all that glamor & BRAINS reading to kids. Our country is hurting and every single one of us needs help. Get that positive force you possess in ACTION for us! We need a leader - NOW.

NO HATE!!!: Back to the

NO HATE!!!: Back to the post though!! Some of these comments do seem a tad shifty!!! To the person favoring Chicago, all metropolitan areas are going through the same thing. Now, if The Obamas showed favoritism then that would be another story. So basicly in most narrow minded eyes they will be damned if they do and damned if they don’t! I don’t get some folk. It’s only been 100+ days!!! The president and 1st lady need way more time than that to fix 8+ years of f&uck ups so please give them time! The republicans are jealous of Obama's popularity. They are working behind the scenes to try and destroy any chance of him serving a 2nd term. In fact, if there was a way to kick him out of office now, please believe, they would try, LOL,LOL. Cheney, Rush, Limbaugh hate, all hate Obama. Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh spew hate, hate, hate all day long. They make their money hating Obama. There is another billionaire in Texas, the HUNT FAMILY. They are Bush cronies/backers. Bush helped them secure a billion or two in oil deals when he was in office. These are powerful people working behind the scenes to discredit Obama. There is a concerted effort in place to try and destroy Obama's popularity in the country. Dispatching people to come in here and DISTRACT us with NEGATIVES towards the president and his family is part of it, although a small part, they are trying. The republicans are playing dirty.

WomanSoul: Uh… Co-founder

WomanSoul: Uh… Co-founder of NARAL, Founder of the Children’s Defense League, the most active First Ladies since Eleanor Roosevelt, 2-term senator from NY state, winner of the popular Democratic primaries (Obama did not get 18 million votes, she DID) AND NOW Secretary of State?Hillary put them Wellsey & Yale brains to WORK. No I mean look where that got her with the media.They viciously attacked her and distracted people from what her husband was trying to do.I am a big fan of Hillary and am not trying to diminish what she accomplished at all.Also you seem to be comparing Hillary's 8 years of work to Michelle's which is not fair.

My point with Michelle's hair

My point with Michelle's hair is that Michelle straightens her hair for the same reason Iman wears a weave. They both like the way their hair looks. Black women are fortuate that they have a lot of options when it comes to hair, no option is better than the other. I see no reason to criticize Iman for wearing a weave when Michelle Obama gets hair done probably every week if not every time she leaves the White House for a public event.

Kayana: She has

Kayana: She has actually.The media never reports on anything she does though other than her fashion choices.An example of this is this post right here.Right after she was done reading to the kids she visited the school to meet with leaders from the dropout prevention organization Communities In Schools, which provides individual tutoring for the third graders she met.If you go to sites like Michelle Watch you will find out she is doing a lot and it has only been a little over 100 days.Give her time.She can not come out doing a bunch of controversial things like that.Look where that got Hillary. Uh... Co-founder of NARAL, Founder of the Children's Defense League, the most active First Ladies since Eleanor Roosevelt, 2-term senator from NY state, winner of the popular Democratic primaries (Obama did not get 18 million votes, she DID) AND NOW Secretary of State? Hillary put them Wellsey & Yale brains to WORK.

The First Lady has promoted

The First Lady has promoted growing our own fruits and vegetables in a country that is in a recession yet is inhabited by some of the fattest people on the planet. She has promoted planting trees as a way to promote a healthy earthly environment, in a country that puts out more toxic emissions than just about any other place on earth. She did this on Earth Day. She has publicly promoted the families of our soldiers and made this her call as First Lady. Mrs. Obama has also made education a priority and I am highly impressed by the interaction she commits to the children and their education. She is also a mother with two young and very impressionable young girls who demand her attention as they go through puberty and a wife. And to some Black Women, she still isn't doing enough. You ought to be ashamed of your selves. We have a hard enough row to hoe as it is without us being our own thorns and stones in the path. This isn't about criticism.
