It’s a banner winter for incredibly youthful-looking people turning 50. First, Brad Pitt hit the mark in December. And on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama officially became a quinquagenarian.
If this information makes you feel alarmed, don’t be! Michelle Obama happens to be incredibly youthful for her age. In fact, she might be the youngest 50-year-old we know. Here’s why:
She rolls her eyes just like a teen
She dances like a teen, too
And sometimes she dances like a puppet
Her #TBT game is on point
She loves making faces

Though some hard-to-please peeps don’t love Michelle Obama‘s bangs, we think they look awesome!
And now FLOTUS has revealed the real reason behind the chop.
She was having a mid-life crisis!
During an interview with Rachael Ray set to air on Wednesday, the 49-year-old confesses:
“This is my mid-life crisis, the bangs. I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”
Well, giving yourself a new look may not be as heart-pounding as bungee jumping, but it’s definitely safer!
And way cheaper than a sports car!
We’ll have to remember that if we ever feel a mid-life crisis coming on. Ha!
