First Lady Gets Grammy Nod

by Liane Membis

Michelle Obama has been nominated for the 2013 Grammy awards.

The first lady is up for Best Spoken Word Album. She is represented in the category for the audio version of her book, American Grown. As a politician she’s not alone — Bill Clinton was also nominated for the audio version of his book, Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government For a Strong Economy.

With her one nomination she leads other artists, like Justin Beiber and Nicki Minaj, that were shut out of the prestigious music award show.

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards airs on February 10th. Will you be watching?

    No. I won’t be watching. I’m very confused right about now. What the hell?

  • Ann G

    You forgot to mention that her husband, President Barack Obama, won a Grammy in this same category in 2008 for the audio version of his book, “The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts On Reclaiming The American Dream”. :-)

  • Jade Noelle

    Hey there pretty lady! confused about what?

    While she is a political figure, Michele Obama is not a politician.
