Michelle Obama joins Instagram and the world jumps for joy

Say what you want about her husband’s politics, but it’s nearly impossible to deny the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama is seriously a whole bunch of awesomeness. Besides trying to rid the country of childhood obesity, she is also casual friends with George Clooney, makes us laugh, moves her mother into the White House, wears the classiest clothes (J. Crew thanks you for your service) and rocks haircuts like no other.

And if that wasn’t enough, everyone’s favorite Obama (after Malia and Sasha, of course), has decided to bless us mere plebeians with her very own Instagram. READ FULL STORY

Alec Baldwin, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hanks and more join Michelle Obama’s veteran aid campaign -- VIDEO

They may not have been enlisted by the commander-in-chief, but a host of A-list celebrities have been drafted by the First Lady for a different kind of military campaign: Alec Baldwin, Bradley Cooper, Michael Douglas and other stars have lent their celestial power to a new PSA for Michelle Obama’s “Got Your Six” campaign, which aims to help military veterans find jobs, education and housing and altogether re-enter civilian life.

The PSA campaign features a number of celebrities–including Tom Hanks, Judith Light, Tracy Morgan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Pharrell Williams and Brian Williams–repeating the expression “I’ve got your six,” which in the military means “I’ve got your back” (referring to the number six’s directional position on the clock).

Michelle Obama visits 'The Colbert Report,' talks helping military families and why 'iCarly' wins -- VIDEO

The First Lady continued her late-night rounds yesterday with a stop at The Colbert Report. On the one-year anniversary of the Joining Forces initiative, Mrs. Obama was in the studio to talk about hiring veterans and helping military families.

But forget the politics, Colbert wanted to get down to the real issues: Who would win in a contest of gravitas between the funnyman and Nickelodeon’s iCarly, whose show featured a FLOTUS cameo in a January episode.

“That’s a tough one,” Obama said. “iCarly is about 16 and she’s real deep.”

And of course, it wouldn’t be a true First Lady talk show appearance if there wasn’t at least the tease of a dance party.

“I should add some random dancing to my show,” Colbert countered, as a way to beat the teen comedy that routinely features outbursts of dance. “We could try,” Obama replied.
