Even the First Lady wishes she could be somebody else sometimes!

Michelle Obama reveals to People magazine that, despite her charmed life and role model status, there's one celebrity she wouldn't mind doing a Freaky Friday-style body swap with.

"Gosh. If I had some gift, I'd be Beyoncé," the political icon says. 

"I'd be some great singer," she adds. "The power of music, being able to play an instrument ... It looks like musicians just have the most fun."

But Mrs. O isn't the only one in her family who can carry a tune. She reveals her husband, President Barack Obama, sings "all the time. Sometimes I can't get him to stop," she says.


"He loves it in the shower in the morning, sings to the kids. But it's not a song. He'll sing one line of something romantic or cute," she adds.

We can just picture it: a duet of "Crazy in Love" by the most powerful couple in the world with Sasha, Malia and Bo singing backup. Who wouldn't vote for that?
