Color on the Cover: First Lady Michelle Obama Covers TIME

michelle-obama-time Michelle Obama has landed another cover: TIME Magazine. The issue, which tries to define the "Meaning of Michelle," features a striking photograph of the First Lady's face. While we hated how uncomfortable she looked on the cover of Vogue in March, we're really wondering how much airbrushing this photograph's been under? "I'm pretty much who I've been for a long time. So that ... I just think that people have the opportunity to see all of who Michelle Obama is over a longer period of time," she says. "And hopefully they like what they see. And I think they actually ... to the extent that they saw all of me ... liked what they saw then." michelle_time1

For some reason, we don't find that appealing--and neither do we find her fierce cat costume (one of 58 over-the-top get-ups designed by Thierry Mugler for the stage) intriguing...Seriously, does one really need to have the panther paws/cheetah spots painted on one's skin?! beyonce-marie-claire-june-2009-cover

Color on the Cover: ‘Damned Yankee’ Alex Rodriguez Spill the Details

alexrodriguez-details-april2009cover After tearfully confirming that he used a "banned substance" to enhance his playing power, New York Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez appears on the April 2008 issue of men's style mag Details. "We live in a world right now where everyone's keeping score," Rodriguez says. "And it doesn't stop when the games end. . . . They've crossed over. And you have the Internet stuff, and all these phones. . . . It's very intense." On a lighter note, he even admits to taking the subway after home games in New York: "I have a hoodie on, but all it takes is one person and then you're done. But it's great. The fans get a kick out of it, I get a kick out of it. We talk about who's pitching tonight, and what we need to do. It's like being on sports radio. arod-details-magazine-april20081

Color on the Cover: Michelle Obama and Mama Marian Robinson’s First Interview Together

michelle-obama-essence-cover-marian-robinsonjpg Essence magazine's May issue celebrates Mother's Day with First Lady Michelle Obama and her White House live-in mother, Marian Robinson. Mom-in-Chief On... ADVANCING THE ROLE OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE: "We have to talk about flex hours and exercise and nutrition and health and what that means. And we have to talk about values, and about our relationships with men. All of those are part of the conversation that I think we need to have, not just in this country but around the world." COMBATING STEREOTYPICAL IMAGES OF BLACK WOMEN: "The women in videos and the stereotypes are just not the truth of who we are as a community. We already know that because we are living these lives every single day. It's nice to have this reminder in the White House, but I would say we don't need it...all you need to do is look around your own community and you will see this same family in churches and in schools." Grandma-in-Chief On... ADVICE ON RAISING CHILDREN: "The main thing that I think needs to be taught to children is the ability to think and make decisions. You don't have to have a lot of information, but you have to know how to get through the process. If you make mistakes you don't [just] decide I will never do that again." ENJOYING LIFE IN THE WHITE HOUSE: "...I really am. You want to know why? Because my children are good parents. It makes it very easy to be a grandmother when your children are good parents."
