There's No Funnier Sight Than Watching Michelle Obama Grocery Shop With Ellen DeGeneres

Michelle Obama and Ellen Degeneres' trip to CVS is too entertaining for words.

Ellen DeGeneres is like an idle child fresh off some sweets when she makes a store run. How do we know? Thanks to a new segment on her show where she prepares First Lady Michelle Obama for life after the White House, we have the footage to prove it.

When the First Lady enters a CVS armed with a flock of suited up Secret Service, a camera crew and a mischievous talk show host, she has no idea just what she's getting herself into. As Michelle tries to figure out how to cash out at a CoinStar machine, Ellen is grabbing Halloween masks to scare her. When Michelle makes friends with a new mom pushing her newborn down the aisle, Ellen is trying to sign the baby's forehead. As Michelle is stumped on the concept of boxed wine and how to open it, Ellen has already popped off the top of a vodka bottle to use as a party cup. At the register, while Michelle is scanning items and inserting the money, Ellen is tearing open a candy bar and hopping into the shopping cart for a joyride. Michelle even shuts down Ellen's pleas for a prime spot on a U.S. currency by letting her know the requirement is to do something like revolutionary. "You should've freed some slaves," Mrs. Obama cleverly jokes after a nod to Harriet Tubman. Life given.

Throughout the hilarious adventure, FLOTUS, who presumably hasn't taken a leisurely stroll to her local CVS in quite some time, looks on in embarrassment, shushes and swats Ellen away jokingly and, like us home viewers, throws her head back in laughter.

Watch the excursion unfold here.

Premiere: pineappleCITI Overcomes A Near-Death Experience In "Recognize" Video

Being a woman in rap already has its challenges, especially when you're more focused on finding success through your lyrics instead of showcasing your body. But in 2016, pineappleCITI had a lot more on the line after a horrible accident.

The video for "Recognize" revisits a difficult time in pineappleCITI's life. In September 2016, the New Jersey rapper/songwriter got into a vicious car crash that left her unable to walk for two years. After a dramatized reenactment of the crash, the visual includes real photos and footage of pineappleCITI's road to recovery through physical training. It's bookended by her popping bottles and throwing cash with a group of friends, and her seeing a billboard with her face, showing the fruits of her hard work.

“Now more than ever is a time for us to be as authentic as possible," pineappleCITI told VIBE. "I hope to inspire others by showing my journey from rock bottom back up."

While pineappleCITI is a mainstay at VIBE, this video displays a different side of the new Red Bull Records singee's story. The song showcases her versatile, melodic raps, and the video shows just how much she's overcome. Watch the video for "Recognize" above.
