30 Things Michelle Obama Should Do Now That She's 50!

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama has hit the big 5-0. The supportive and loving wife/mother, strong leader and epitome of a lady wears her half of century extremely well. Like many others, she managed to put life in her years; she’s worked hard and now she’s reaping the rewards.

The First Lady of the United States has already accomplished so much and now we want her to live it up. We want her to have fun, be stupid (not too stupid) and live on the edge—enough to feel the fear but not enough to compeletly fall off. With a resume like her's, the only thing left to do is embrace the quintessential tangible and intangible things. With a women that has everything within arms reach, here are 30 things she should add to her bucket list.

Binge TV

We want her to spend a weekend binge watching our favorite shows. She needs one ratchet, one reality, one drama, one comedy, and one sitcom.

Ratchet: LHHATL because after she sees the way women behave on TV, she’ll be pushed to call an immediate recall of all these shows and help change the way women present themselves.

Reality:  First season of Real World because that was the only real reality show we believe existed.

Drama: Scandal- need we explain more? It’s a good quality show regardless of the depiction of Kerry’s adulterous ways.

Sitcom: Martin- although he’s off the air, it was the best sitcom of all time.

Comedy: Modern Family-one of the best family comedies that always has a great ending point.

Foodie

We know the first lady is conscious about what she puts in her body, as we all should be. But we want her to cheat heavily on her daily diet. We want her to make a three course meal of everything she loves to eat but doesn't because it's bad for her. Then over the course of the day, we want her to indulge in all those fatty, greasy, sweet and sour meals!

Project X

Have a party and invite nothing but regular people. Not just someone of celebrity status or political powers, but normal people either doing something amazing in the world or contest winners.

Wedding Crasher

What's more fun then attending a wedding? Attending one you weren't invited to. Her and Barack should get dressed up one day and travel from reception halls and hotel venues until they find the best extravagant wedding to crash. That'll be a great present for the newly married couple.

Top Down Concert

Where's the best place to have your own little concert? You car. For some reason, driving around with the windows down, blasting the track that you feel you can compete vocally with the artist on is the best feeling in the world. We want to make sure Mrs. Obama can get that full effect.

Cross Country Road Trip

The best part of life is the unknown, which is why  FLOTUS should venture into it. She should grab Sasha, Malia and President Obama and visit all the states she hasn't visited outside of the presidential campaign.

Rain

She should pick a day where she knows it'll rain later on and plan a romantic day with POTUS. Once it starts raining, she should passionately kiss him under or not an umbrella.

Random Text Message

The first lady should randomly text a number saying "Hi, this is Michelle Obama, how are you?" It'll be funny to see how long the receiver of the text will converse with her and what type of conversation they will have. Granted she will not use her own personal cellphone number.

Walk the Brooklyn Bridge

In China they have the Great Wall and San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge. But if you’re a New Yorker, chances are you live in Brooklyn, used to live there or secretly want to live there. She should take a random stroll on the bridge because you’d be surprise at the things and people you’ll see while strolling this miles long walk way.

FLOTUS should go to Australia and locate; P Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.

Random Visits

As hard as this may be, she should pick 50 schools, one per state and go visit them—preferably one that needs the most guidance. She has a huge impact on the youth today and a visit from FLOTUS can forever change the path these young kids take.

White Boy Wasted

We can see the side eyes already, but everyone should experience this at least once in their older years for two reasons. One: because besides the killer hangover she'll experience the next day, the stupid memories will make up for it and two: once you do it, you can check it off your bucket list and never have to do it again.

Flash Mob

She should create a flash mob. Starting with civilians dancing in front of the white house. When the entire house staff, security, and the commander-in-chief are outside watching in awe; the selected staff members and Mrs. Obama should join the flash mob as the grand finale.

VIBE-Vixen-Vine

Vine

She should make a Vine while she’s still at the white house. Maybe show us her favorite place in the white house, shout out her favorite staff member, or give us a quick tour of her never-ending closet. Those 7 seconds into her life would give us life.

$1 Bill

She should sign all of her dollar bills before spending it and wait to see how long it would take for her to get one back.

Youtube

FLOTUS should create a video on Youtube of her lip singing her favorite song and see how fast it goes viral.

100 Day Photo Challenge

Michelle should create a Tumblr to photo document her life and everything that happens in the midst of her living. She should do it for a total of 100 days, not necessarily consecutively but it has to be completed before a year is up. This will definitely rival Beyonce's tumblr.

Prank Call

She should prank call her favorite celebrity friend. What better way to get a good laugh then upsetting a friend of yours? Plus they will never suspect it's her.

Wet Cement

FLOTUS should engrave her John Hancock in wet cement. Trust us; most construction workers hate seeing this, but once they find out who it's from, their anger will turn into delight.

She should taste every flavor of Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

Ellen Degeneres

Audience Member

She should disguise herself and sit in the audience of a talk show. Prior to the show she should inform the host that she'll be joining her show and in the last 15 minutes of the show her real identity should be revealed. We pick Ellen for a talk show she should sit in on.

She should try and make a guard at Buckingham Palace laugh. She may not succeed but it'll make a great Vine or Tumblr post.

Riding with sharks may to edgy for everyone, so she should take her chances and ride with dolphins.

Questions

She should pick a day where all she does is answer a question with a question. Imagine how funny it would be for her to try and get anything done or hold a conversation with FLOTUS. Especially without anyone knowing what she's doing.

Name Award

There are some weird names out here-why not capitalize on it? Mrs. Obama should pick the craziest name she believes no child will have and start a quest to find out if a young person actually has it. If she finds that person, she should promise to pay for their college tuition in exchange that the go to college and major in Engineering, Science, Mathematics, or Political Science.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
