For the last nine years Oprah has been a regular face and figure at the grocery store check-out line. The media mogul has been the sole cover girl on O magazine since its inception. But the upcoming April issue is a different story — Oprah is sharing(!) with First Lady Michelle Obama.
In the issue, which hits newsstands March 17, Michelle dishes on her new life in the White House. Here are some highlights:
- On her first weekend in the White House: Well, we still had family here, so it was almost like a wedding. A huge, very complicated wedding. The last visitors didn't leave until Sunday. And then the first Monday was kind of weird. You know: Now we live here, and Barack is getting up and going to work, and it's just us. This is our home now.
- On who the White House really belongs to: When you go out and come back, especially at night, with all the white lights on — it's just beautiful. We feel privileged, and we feel a responsibility to make it feel like the people's house. We have the good fortune of being able to sleep here, but this house belongs to America.
