Michelle Obama Graces Cover of Ebony

Michelle Obama is featured on the cover of the May Ebony, and of course she looks fabulous. Inside the issue, The Huffington Post reports that the First Lady talks to Amy DuBois, Ebony’s Editor-in-Chief, about how she maintains a level head with her crazy life.

Also, since May 13 is Mother’s Day (mark your calendar now!), Mrs. Obama even discusses the ways the family celebrates the holiday and how important her mother is to her. “Anytime I need to go and plop on her couch and just talk, she’s always there,” she told Ebony.

The May issue of Ebony hits newsstands April 17.
