News Media Squeals With Delight About Michelle Obama ‘Vogue’ Possibility

That's MRS. Flotus to you... There is a rumor going ’round that the gorgeous visage of our beloved First Lady Michelle Obama will be gracing grocery store check-out aisles everywhere come next month. No, they have not started carrying Candy magazine at the Piggly Wiggly. It’s Vogue! “USA TODAY’s David Jackson confirms that Annie Leibovitz was at the White House on Thursday, the day The Washingtonian reported the possibility of a March cover shot by the famed photog. More evidence: CBS News’ White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted that a Vogue staffer was aboard the press plane to and from Las Vegas on Tuesday.” Everybody is FREAKING OUT.

Our FLOTUS made her Vogue debut in March 2009 as “The First Lady the World’s Been Waiting For.” We soon learned, of course, that there are some parts of the world that were not entirely ready for this first lady! Parts of the world like this and like this. So what will the cover of Michelle’s potential Vogue cover read this time?

Vogue, incidentally, is keeping mum on the cover girl commotion: “We never comment on rumors about future editorial,” the mag’s rep, Megan Salt, told The Washingtonian.

So back off, USA Today! Go back to your colorful charts and let the beautiful people decide when and where they would like to unveil our First Lady. Beyonce totally knows what’s up, though.
