The First Lady of the United States says that if she wasn't heading the White House in Washington D.C with American President Barack Obama, she would have loved to be a music artist.
She told People: "Gosh, if I had some gift, I'd be Beyoncé. I'd be some great singer."
Michelle made the claim in a new interview with the magazine when asked if there was any celebrity or world figure with whom she'd switch lives.
She added: "The power of music, being able to play an instrument... It looks like musicians just have the most fun."
Her complimentary comments came over a month after Beyoncé published a note praising the mother of Malia and Sasha.
The Love On Top singer described her as a role model for her daughter with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter, and said the politician's
wife is "the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman".
She wrote: "She is a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the FIRST LADY!!!!! No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope - she's humble, loving and sincere. Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u do for us - I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to."
