The last two weeks have been about the former First Family, the Obamas, making memories in the wake of youngest daughter, Sasha, graduating from high school. Out on a family vacation to France, the family is relaxing, with paparazzi  snapping a rare photo of Michelle Obama rocking natural hair. Grainy photos are all that exists of the former First Lady in a sleeveless black maxi dress, gold hoop earrings and curly hair. Ordinarily, Obama is known for her blown-out tresses. The photo was caught while Michelle was in the south of France on a date night with husband, Barack. The family has been all over France the past week. Barack and 20-year-old daughter, Malia hiked in the village of Gordes, while Michelle and Malia visited local vineyards and chateaus. Countless people on Twitter have definitely jumped on the media’s interest in Michelle not stylizing her hair, with comments ranging about the specific style to the hype in general about Black women’s hair choices. Many questioned the newsworthiness of Michelle Obama’s hair, particularly in comparisons to other women. https://t.co/CTdKhCR3sX strange how natural hair always come up on people of color? What about it? — Lora Cobb (@LoraCob04074083) June 20, 2019 Uhhh..i love Michelle..but michelle is all black..she not a biracial..black people have a head full of curly hair…"Michelle is wearing a beautiful curly perm on her hair"…🤗😍🤗 https://t.co/yyNR7dcmRJ — MyChurchBarbicueWithAmishPeopleInWoodsWeird. (@LuvLaceJubilee) June 20, 2019 I love natural hair Michelle Obama — Arya Snark (@Cinnamon_Stix) June 20, 2019 Would we be as fascinated by a change in Melania Trump’s hair routine? It’s a topic that’s certainly worth discussing, though it shouldn’t diminish how utterly amazing Michelle Obama is! The Obamas remain heavily in the spotlight even after leaving the White House. The couple are being eyed as the future godparents of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new baby, Archie, and Michelle herself popped up at the Grammys recently (when she wasn’t praising her love for Beyonce’s Homecoming). Regardless, Michelle Obama is still the queen, no matter how her hair looks!

I started listening to Stay Tuned with Preet Bharara this morning and his guest Ben Rhoades. But after about 10 minutes into the interview, I switched to a BBC podcast on some Mytileneum Debate, which I had never heard of and means nothing to me. The reason why I switched was because I couldn’t bear […]

Picking godparents for your child is a big deal, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly feel like they know who’d rise to meet the important role. Per the UK’s Express, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are considering the Obamas for baby Archie’s godparents. While the ultimate choice likely won’t be revealed until the child’s baptism next month, one royal expert is confident Barack and Michelle are the top contenders at this point. Royal biographer Angela Levin made the surprising claim while speaking on The Royal Box. She insisted hat both Harry and Meghan get on “very well” with the former POTUS and FLOTUS. Though Harry’s friendship with Barack has often been celebrated in the press, Levin revealed that Meghan is similarly tight with Michelle — even leaning on Michelle as her mentor while adjusting to life in the royal family. “I think the Obamas could very well stand there because Harry has always got on very, very well with them,” Levin said, adding, “And Meghan does too. And Meghan has used Mrs. Obama to help her understand the Royals and how she should do things. She’s used her as a bit of a mentor.” GIF: Giphy. What’s important to note is that, if the Obamas are named godparents, they might not be alone in that distinction. When Prince William and Kate Middleton announced Prince Louis’s godparents just before his christening last July, there were six godparents chosen. Prince George has seven and Princess Charlotte has five. Why so many? In an interview with ABC News in 2015, Evening Standard royal editor Robert Jobson explained: “There’s a feeling that because of their role as members of the royal family that they need as many confidantes as they can get apart from their parents.” The godparents chosen for George, Charlotte and Louis by William and Kate consist mostly of close friends, with a few family members thrown in the mix. So it stands to reason that the Obamas could very well be a logical choice for Harry and Meghan. Other possibilities on the celebrity side include tennis icon Serena Williams, humanitarians George and Amal Clooney, stylist Jessica Mulroney, producer Lindsay Roth, actress Priyanka Chopra and Suits co-star Abigail Spencer. As far as Harry’s other close pals go, potential godfathers could be Tom “Skippy” Inskip, Jake Warren, Charlie and Thomas van Straubenzee, Arthur Landon, Guy Pelly, Hugh Grosvenor and Nacho Figueras. Long story short? The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have an incredible crop of close friends and family from which to choose baby Archie’s godparents. (Although, admittedly, we’re pretty partial to the Obamas.)
