Michelle Obama turns 50 today and she couldn’t be more elated. Describing herself as “50 and fabulous,” the First Lady is getting ready to show off some dance moves at her big birthday celebration at the White House on Saturday.
“I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman,” the first lady told Parade magazine last summer when asked about approaching the big 5-0.
That confidence was on full display when she recently took on the topic of aging and whether she’d ever consider plastic surgery.
“Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves,” Obama said in an interview with People magazine set to release on Friday, her birthday. “Right now, I don’t imagine that I would go that route, but I’ve also learned to never say never.”
Happy birthday Ms. Obama!
