After showing off her and Jill Biden’s PSA promoting national service, Michelle Obama got down to business – via satellite from the White House – and answered 10 random questions from Jay Leno on his talk show Friday.
To the delight of the audience, the First Lady joked easily along with Leno about how tough it would be for the President to choose between world peace or his beloved Chicago White Sox winning a World Series pennant, and revealed Barack’s most annoying habit: “When he beats me at tennis,” she said, “that gets to be pretty annoying and he beats me quite often!”
Foremost, she showed off a penchant for pop culture. When asked to name all the Brady kids, she got all the names correct and threw in the name of cousin Oliver as well. When asked for her iPod playlist, she said, “I have a pretty eclectic iPod distribution, I’ve got, oh, I’ve got Sting, I’ve got Stevie Wonder, my favorite. I’ve got some Sara Bareilles, I’ve got, ooh, some Robin Thicke, some Mary J. Blige. Ooh, I got it all. Some Herbie Hancock. I love my iPod!”
For more of the First Lady’s answers, tune in to The Jay Leno Show Friday on NBC at 10 p.m. ET.
