This is what trouble looks like in the world of Michelle Obama: her bangs are sometimes irritating.
Yes, extend your compassion to this “single Mom.” While others are busy worrying about getting a job, paying their bills and keeping their houses, Michelle is faced with this terrifying issue.
The First Lady told Entertainment Tonight” that “Bangs are a day-by-day proposition. They’re starting to grow out, get a little irritating.”
The Mail Online adds “Still, she hasn’t let her hairdo woes get her down. ‘It’s okay,’ she said after her initial complaint. ‘We’ll be good.'”
Isn’t she brave! To quote her husband, “That’s what I’m talking about!”
The Mail continues: “The first indication that her hairstyle was becoming a burden came about last weekend, when Malia, 14, was spotted adjusting her mother’s hair during the White House Easter Egg Roll.
“The high school freshman gently smoothed her mother’s hair for the cameras, then leaned in to kiss her on the cheek.”
What a family! Her daughters really care about her!
“Mrs Obama’s new haircut made headlines when it was first debuted in January, even managing to overshadow the President’s inauguration weekend.
“He jokingly announced at the start of the festivities: ‘To address the most significant event of the weekend, I love her bangs.’
“‘The bangs are fun but you know, I’m like a girl, what’s next?’
“The hairstyle became such a talking point that one fan even created a Twitter account called MichellesBangs.
“But it appears what at first was a novelty has turned into a burden for the First Lady, who has grown tired of her high-maintenance hairstyle.
‘It’s fun but you know, I’m like a girl, what’s next?’ she said to the interviewer.
“While her husband has been supportive throughout, not everybody been a fan of Mrs Obama’s hair change; designer Karl Lagerfield, for example, famously described them as ‘a bad idea.'”
How dare he criticize our style setting Michelle! But she takes it like a champ:
“But despite critics and the irritation it may cause, Mrs Obama hasn’t let her hairdo slow her down.
“Yesterday Mrs Obama joined school children from across the country to plant a vegetable garden on the South Lawn of the White House, as part of her Let’s Move initiative.
“Her bangs looked perfectly styled as she crouched to plant and water the greens.
“And despite her hair frustration, the First Lady told the ET interviewer she is looking forward to sporting floaty fabrics and skirts once spring finally rolls around.
“‘My style is pretty easy and comfortable,’ she explained, noting that she is excited to be able to wear bright spring colors this season.”
That’s tops on my list. Isn’t it on yours, too?
