First Lady Michelle Set For Vogue Cover+Beyonce's M.I.A.?

​ ​ ​ ​
First Lady Michelle Obama is set to become only the second First Lady to grace the cover of Vogue magazine. The mag hits stands Feb. 17th. Here's the scoop on what the cover and inside pics look like:
In the cover photo, taken by Annie Leibovitz, Obama is leaning on a soft beige sofa at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the first family stayed days before the historic inauguration. Obama is wearing a magenta dress by Jason Wu, who designed her inaugural ball gown. Her right hand rests under her chin. Her left hand folded beneath her. She is wearing a diamond that you do not often see her wearing in recent appearances. Behind her, light streams in between curtains. Inside, a photograph shows her in a black dress by designer Narciso Rodriguez. She is standing in front of open French doors. Outside is Lafayette Park and in the distance you can barely see the White House, the seat of power. Behind her are the props of her profession: a laptop, a cup of coffee or more likely tea. A notepad, a pen. A folded newspaper. She is tethered to work by an old-fashioned telephone, the spiral cord stretched, the receiver at her right ear. She is not talking. She is either listening or on hold.

You know we'll have it here on YBF as soon as we can get our hands on it. Read the rest for info on Beyonce's M.I.A. status... So now that it's official that Beyonce skipped out on all Grammy activities, folks are asking why. She was definitely pre-confirmed to hit the red carpet and sit next to her sister Solange and hubby Jay-Z in the audience. And of course to watch her man perform. But she was nowhere in sight. She and Jay were also confirmed to attend L.A. Reid's post-Grammy dinner party, but both were no shows. Instead, Jay hit up Katsuya restaurant with his sister in law. Hmmm. Some folks are saying Beyonce didn't even want to go near L.A. because she's still saddened by the Etta James situation--despite appearing semi-bubbly on a paparazzi video this weekend where she was barely even seen. Others say she's just practicing for her upcoming tour that's kicking off soon. Still, when have we ever known our girl to ever skip confirmed red carpet photo op? Especially when her cousin and former assistant was partying it up at all the Grammy parties with Kelly Rowland and Michelle I hear. Very interesting... She is scheduled to be in Phoenix for All-Star Weekend this weekend and at Lebron James' and Jay-Z's Two Kings dinner this weekend in Scottsdale, AZ. She's also scheduled for a few other performances this month and next. Time will tell...

Jay-Z beat her azz that night too because when Rihanna called Jay-Z to come get her after she jumped out of Chris' Lambo, Beyonce got tight and started screaming "Where da fuck you think you going? Fuck that Bajan Bitch! Why the fuck she calling you for?" Jay-Z cold clocked her in her eye because Bey called his side-piece out her name. She is at home nursing that swollen eye & busted lip.[/quote] you have no life.

Maybe she wanted a day out the spotlight...geez.

I'm no Beyonce stan - I think

I'm no Beyonce stan - I think she could do a better job in the stle department - but the venous hate that is directed towards her is unwarranted. Albeit on a much LARGER scale, it reminds me of all the hate I had to endure at the mostly Black, public high school I attended. The girls there hated me for no reason. Everything I did was scrutinized and talked about.My friends said it was because my boyfriend was captain of the B-ball team (6'5" and gorgeous), I was an honor student, cheerleader, virgin, real long wavy hair and dressed like a fly, preppy girl (thanks to the summer jobs I always had). However, life for me had not always been charmed. My dad was in and out of my life, I had a speech impediment as a young child and my mother could be demanding and verbally abusive. Neverthless, I worked very hard for my accomplishments and made a success of my life. I feel for Beyonce and the intense scruitny she's under. She can't help the fact that she was born pretty, talented and sweet to a middle-class family AND the most successful rapper in the world loves her. She's worked hard and remained relatively humble and deserves whatever blessings God has for her.

[quote comment="421604"]I think she was being a big sis to Ri Ri through this bullshit. I think Chris is a huge PUNK and i am very disapointed in him as an ex fan of his...Even if he shook her up that would have been a tad bit more acceptable than to fight her like a man in the street. Hope some one whoops his ass....[/quote] So fool that i am did a series of test today. because i had too see if i was crazy or you bitches were crazy so i picked a fight with my fiancee. and than i went and boxed him in his head, he was mad but he didnt respond just told nme chill the f out. but than i continued to hit at him to see what his responce was and of course he knocked me right upside my head.. and than walked away. all i could do was laugh and explain to him what i was doing. and aftermath he and i both agreed it was deserved how you goin pout your handsa on somebody keep hitting them and expect them to look the other way. and i bet if chris brown through her ass out the car or called the police it would have damaged his career even more wouldnt it. why u think rhianna so quiet and aint saying nothing she knows what she did. go hit your man, cousin or whoever when fighting and i bet next time u up on this talking bout you missing ur teeth and hating rhianna for it after too

Ummm, you want her to take a break, but when she takes a break you start looking for her! If that is not a sign of a super star, I don't know what is! I know blogs draw the most hits and posters when a topic of Beyonce comes up, so I'm taking it that hits on blogs around the world are down. Anyway, you can catch her on TV this week at the Essence Awards. She's performing! She can catch her this weekend in Phoenix too! And her tour is on it's way! Beyonce is just about 1.8 Mill in the USA and 2.8 Worldwide! I think the lack of promotion is actually helping her sales!LOL

I heard BoreYonce is

I heard BoreYonce is recovering for a nose-job. and liposuction. But then again, she hasn't sold 2 million and for the record SHIPPED does not equate to sales. Or, maybe she is embarrass to perform her booty track SL, or ghetto track Diva since she performed for Barack. It's a catch-22 for the attention-seeking washed up wanna be icon.

I love my first lady. I stan

I love my first lady. I stan for them both. if I am 100% honest, I wasn't really "going hard for Obama" until hear Michelle speak on his behalf. And when she was done, I replaced the image of which woman i wanted in the white house more. I know her role may not seem important to many, but behind every strong man, of any color, is a strong woman. You can a lot about a man by the woman he choses to be his backbone. And judging by Mrs. Obama, I know we are in for some change in this country.
