First lady quips that midlife crisis led to bangs

By Associated Press

PALM CITY, Fla. >> Michelle Obama jokingly says a midlife crisis is what inspired her new haircut with bangs.

The first lady revealed the new hairstyle last month on her 49th birthday, which came a few days before the festivities for President Barack Obama's second inauguration.

Mrs. Obama was asked about the new haircut during an interview with talk-show host Rachael Ray.

Said Mrs. Obama: "This is my midlife crisis." She added that she cut her bangs because she can't get a sports car and won't be allowed to bungee jump.

The interview was conducted via Skype and is scheduled to air on Wednesday. The Rachael Ray show released excerpts Monday.

Gotta give her credit for a funny line: "Because she can't get a sports car and won't be allowed to bungee jump." Why not lighten up? She's not hurting anyone, and shows a sense of humor.

Yeah..... "sent for approval" again. Guess "freedom of speech" doesn't apply to the S*A. What country am I in?

So that's what led to the bangs. Now explain what led to massive increase in the size of Rachel Ray's rear end.
