In an interview with People magazine to promote the upcoming release of her gardening book, American Grown, Michelle Obama took a brief detour to discuss the intimate details of a nighttime ritual she shares with the President.
"We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I'm usually in bed before anybody," the First Lady says. "He'll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss, and we'll talk. He's like, Ready to be tucked? I'm like, Yes I am.'"
Ms. Obama also brought up Mr. Obama's love affair with extemporaneous singing. Apparently one of his go-to tunes is LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It."
"He loves it in the shower in the morning, sings to the kids," she told the publication. "But it's not a song. He'll sing one line of something romantic or cute. Oh yes."
"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent ... 'It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."
