Michelle Obama Is Not Afraid to Embarrass Her Kids — Here's Why

First Lady Michelle Obama has been known to bust a move or two, and while we love to watch her dance, the same can't be said for her two daughters. During an interview on Live with Kelly and Michael, the mother of Sasha and Malia revealed that there is an agenda behind her dancing.

"Barack and I, we're like any parents. We love to embarrass them," Obama told Michael Strahan. "If they're looking a little uninvolved in an event then I'll just lean over and be like, 'If you don't smile I'm going to start dancing. I'm gonna start dancing.' Then Barack is like, 'I'm going to sing. I'm going to start singing. Here I go.'"

Embarrassing her daughters is just part of helping her kids lead a normal life. Now that Sasha and Malia are teens, they have more going on in their lives, from after-school activities to dances to Spring break.

"It's all the things that any parent is dealing with with teenagers, except you have to manage detail and security staffing, and you're trying to do it in a way where they don't feel out of place," Obama says.
