For the very first time in nine years, Oprah Winfrey will share the cover with someone else. Not her “skinny” self. She’s been there, done that! No, to share the cover of “O” magazine with its’ publisher and founder you have to be seriously big time! Bigger than Oprah! Who could that possibly be?
You know who it is! First Lady Michelle Obama! Who else? The history making issue finds it way to news stand on March 17. In an exclusive interview, Michelle Obama shares with Oprah what it means to live in the White House, decorating aspirations, how her family are adjusting, and what her plans are for the House “that belongs to America.”
“The White House,” First Lady Michelle Obama explained to Oprah as they relaxed together one afternoon, “is a beautiful home. We feel privileged and feel a responsibility to make it feel like the people’s house. We have the good fortune of being able to sleep here, but this house belongs to America.”
As far as decorating the “people’s house,” Michelle Obama says that it will “reflect our family.” She plans to make the White House comfortable, reflecting contemporary and traditional art. “I want to bring in new American artisans,” Obama said in the April issue of “O.”
About Malia and Sasha, the First Lady says that she wants “the kids to be treated like children, not little princess.”
