Michelle Obama is being criticized for her view on plastic surgery. In a new interview, the First Lady revealed that women have the right to do anything they want, and that includes botox.
While Michelle Obama turns 50 on Jan. 17, she still looks absolutely flawless. Although she’s not planning on getting any plastic surgery, she admitted in a new interview that she won’t say she’d never do it. What do you think of the FLOTUS’ comment?
Michelle Obama Botox? ‘Never Say Never’
“Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves,” the First Lady told People. “Right now, I don’t imagine that I would go that route, but I’ve also learned to never say never.”
Justin Bieber clearly got that line from FLOTUS!
Not everyone feels it’s right for Michelle to support botox, but she’s just keeping an open mind!
Plus, she continues in the interview saying that it’s all about staying healthy– especially for women.
“I make sure that I am up on my checkups,” she said. “I have never missed a mammogram or a pap smear. I’ve had a colonoscopy. I don’t obsess about what I eat, but I do make sure that I’m eating vegetables and fruit. And as everyone knows, I do exercise. I’m seeing myself shift from weight-bearing stuff — even though that continues to be important — and the heavy cardio and running, to things like yoga that will keep me flexible.”
Michelle Obama Looks Up To Jane Fonda
To us, Michelle is a woman we look up to — smart, beautiful, strong and successful.
And even though she’s the First Lady, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t look up to other women, too.
“Every event I go to, every rope line, women are looking better with every passing year,” she told the mag. “I run into women all the time who will just happen to mention, ‘Oh, I’m going to be 60,’ and it’s like, ‘You’re kidding me!’ I just went to see Cicely Tyson on Broadway. She is in her 80s and did a two-hour play with stamina and passion. I told her, ‘I want to be you when I grow up!’ [And] then there’s Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman!”
It’s so cool that Michelle still has role models, just like she is to us. What do you think of her botox comment, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
