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...

Stop hiding trick and stand up for yo self, Diva! You look like a fool.[/quote] I luv Bey but she NEVEr sticks up for herself and it makes me so damn mad. She is a chicken. I know that she is VERY SENSITIVE but she is a grown ass woman. C'on Beyonce, you are the #1 DIVA![/quote] She can't be THAT sensitive I think she "plays" like the sensitive sweet girl. You can't have a Daddy, Mama and Sister who has no problem being ignorant and you are the total opposite. Beyonce just has learned in order to keep her fame she has to "play" innocent. She's just has hood and ignorant as them. She just doesn't let it come out as much because when she did (DC days) people were ready to hang her but trust me it's still there.

I hope they don't play

I hope they don't play Michelle like they did Oprah and Jennifer Hudson. As far as Beyonce, her band member said she was rehearsing for her tour and getting ready for the NAACP awards. Plus she was video-taped laughing it up in the streets when she was supposedly laid up somewhere devasted so that story doesn't even ring true anymore. I don't understand why there needs to be another made up Beyonce controversy when there is SOOOOO much going on in the black entertainment world right now.

Michelle Obama is FABULOUS!

Michelle Obama is FABULOUS! This is the prototype of a Black Woman we should strive to be like. Not all of us will have her exact career path, personality or look. However, we should use her life as an example of being determined, strong, independent, forward thinking but traditional with our morals, fashionable, health-conscious and family focused. I'm sure she's not perfect, but she is a great example for her daughters to emulate. SHe makes me so proud!
