Although Michelle is the First Lady of the United States, she joked that if she could choose who to be in life, it would be Beyonce.

When asked by rapper Wale, while promoting their Reach Higher campaign, what she would like to do if she had a different occupation, Michelle gave the surprising answer.

She said: “I would be Beyonce,” before breaking into the ‘Single Ladies’ dance and joking, “I’ve got the hand up.”

Beyonce, 33, even performed at 51-year-old Michelle’s 50th birthday last year, along with her husband President Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2013.

Meanwhile, Michelle is not Beyonce’s only huge fan, Rita Ora admitted she was left embarrassed when she flew to New York to audition for Jay Z’s label Roc Nation in 2009 and her mother called his wife a “bad bitch”.

She told We Love Pop magazine: “My mum’s so embarrassing around Jay Z and Beyonce, talking about nappy rashes when I was a baby!

“She also said to Jay, ‘Did you sing you’ve got 99 problems and a bitch ain’t one?’ He said, ‘Yeah’ so mum goes, ‘You’ve got the baddest bitch’, and points at Beyonce.”
