    This is great, but the last sentence makes it sound like she found a solution to world hunger.

    The First Lady looks beautiful as always!………..
    Now here comes the controversial statement, but I just have to day it. The First Lady has gotten lighter. Before you know it she’ll be the same complexion as our beloved President. What she is doing is completely selfish. Does she not realize how many young black women are looking up to her? SMDH

    no sh*t sherlock, of course she’s lighter.

    it’s the winter time in DC, i’m up here and i’m lighter too because there is less sun and i’m not going outside in the cold unless i have to go to my car.

    don’t find some sort of excuse to complain, that was so nonsensical

    Loves her!!!
