Michelle Obama on the January 2019 Cover of Good Housekeeping Magazine

Michelle Obama is currently on the promo trail to for her new book 'Becoming' and she is another magazine cover for January 2019, Good Housekeeping. On the cover which was shot by Miller Mobley, Michelle is wearing a grey off-the-shoulder piece. In the issue in which she was interviewed by Oprah, she talks 'Becoming', her new life after the White House and so much more. 

On why she named her book 'Becoming':
We actually had a blooper list of titles that we won’t go into. But Becoming just summed it all up. A question that adults ask kids — I think it’s the worst question in the world — is “What do you want to be when you grow up?” As if growing is finite. As if you become something and that is all there is.

On what age she felt grown up:
And I don’t know what the next step will be. I tell young people that all the time. You know, all young women probably have some magic number of what age you’ll be when you feel like a grown-up. Generally, when you think your mother will stop telling you what to do. [Laughs]. But the truth is, for me, each decade has offered something amazing that I would have never imagined. And if I had stopped looking, I would have missed out on so much. So I’m still becoming, and this is the story of my journey. Hopefully, it will spark conversations, especially among young people, about their journeys.

On if writing about her private life scary:
Actually no, because here’s the thing that I realized: People always ask me, 'Why is it that you’re so authentic?' 'How is it that people connect to you?' — and I think it starts because I like me. [Laughs]. I like my story and all the bumps and bruises. I think that’s what makes me uniquely me. So I’ve always been open with my staff, with young people, with my friends. And the other thing, Oprah: I know that whether we like it or not, Barack and I are role models.
