I Stand Corrected...

After viewing 55 photos of Mrs. Michelle Obama, I am going to have to say, there is nothing about her FACE, that makes her UGLY. I stand by my statement of her teeth needing to be tamed but the truth is, camera angles and shots in motion sometimes mislead everyone into thinking you sometimes look just "okay".

I can be quoted as saying the following:

I'll be honest and say I've said she looks a little monkeyish in the face but she MORE than made up for it on the day of inauguration...she was actually pretty that day. I don't know what she did to look THAT pretty THAT day but she was on IT.

She has more "good" days than "bad" days in the face though...and she dresses fly, which ALWAYS helps!!!


After seeing her pictures as a little kid (soooo cute) and her graduation picture (she was just as fly then as she is today...even though it was only a black robe), my overall verdict still is, that she isn't UGLY.

Does she resemble a monkey at times? Yes.
Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily.

I think 50 Cent looks like he could have the starring role as one of the simians in Planet of the Apes...I also think he is attractive (not Dough Boy 50 that rapped about jacking stars....current 50 with the musk-kulls, facial hair, and cocky swag).

I've dated my fair share of guys that ALMOST make me believe in evolution (monkeys to man) BUT they've been attractive. Not just to me...everyone I date, other chicks be gawking.

So Michelle...you're a winner in my book. Even if you NEVER get your teeth fixed.

I just think she is absolutely gorgeous and perhaps its more than just her exterior but when I look at her I cant help but say "she's BAD!". Her distinct features give her character to me. Its all just a matter of personal ideas of attractiveness when it comes down to it

I agree @ 50. 50 will always be way off.. I just cant fade. Its probably because his swagger isn't wassup to me either

How could u even think that about our 1st lady? You are the weakest link...goodbye. LOL!!!!

Assertive Wit said...

@ lioness: Michelle IS bad!!!! I'd NEVER take that from her at all! As for 50, his latest shenanigans are making him appear very "off" to me right now. I still think he is attractive but his attitude sucks and he needs an adjustment...real quick!

@ black girl: think what? that she favored a simian? because she does...but it doesn't mean the woman is ugly. That was my whole point...suckabutt. LOL But some of my friends have said I look like a bear...I know I aint ugly but when they showed me the picture of the bear they were talking about, yeah, I looked like that Winnie the Pook muthastanka LOL point is, she isn't ugly :)

I think those akward characteristics are what make people more attractive sometimes. If 50 didn't have that "gorilla vibe" about his being then he would be as attractive to me because it works for him. He wouldn't look right just being average looking and the same as others.

Mrs. Obama is the same way...her imperfections are hers. They fit her. Not everyone can run around with a jacked up grill and still be every bit as elegant with it as our First Lady.

Assertive Wit said...

I said Winnie the Pook in my last comment; I meant Pooh LOL

@ Ms. Independent: you are so right...hence my correction statement in this blog...the First Lady is quite the stunner LOL

Miss.Stefanie said...

50 is just not an attractive man to me....period

ChiChi10 said...

I never thought she was ugly, but she is damn sure cuter than I was giving her credit for.

Assertive Wit said...

see ChiChi, that's what I was saying!!! LOL

Michelle Obama is hot. I'm sure you didn't mean any harm with your comment but saying that someone looks like a monkey is not exactly the most flattering statement. Neither is saying that someone looks like a bear. As long as you recognize her fierceness, then it's all good.

Assertive Wit said...

@ allison: when my friend said I looked like a bear I didn't take offense at all LOL I know a lot of people would be like "what in the hell do you mean by that" but it didn't bother me at all. I thought I would clean up my statement about Michelle because even though that is my opinion, others think likening someone to an animal is rude LOL My friend didn't say I looked like a Grizzly ; oddly, it was a bear whose eye color and fur were the same color (it was honey colored). That's where she was making her correlation...but she looks like a little chipmunk (and knows it) so we're even. And she is a VERY cute woman LOL

I was standing behind a young black man in the grocery store over this past weekend, and he was looking at an Essence magazine with Michelle and Barack on the cover. I was thinking hmmm, I wonder if he's actually reading the article or what? (it's not every day I see a man reading a magazine unless it's Vibe or Source or sumthin with a fat a** on it) So he turns to his friend and says "Michelle ain't a 100% banger but I for damn sure would wife her up in a second."

So that made me think that there must be something about the grace and classiness of a strong educated black woman who carries herself like a queen that must turn *certain* men on. I say certain cuz obviously some men love their women with fat a*sses and doo doo for brains. Anyway, yeah so even though Michelle may not look like Halle Berry, she has it together enough physically for the areas that she's super strong in (mentally she brings her A+ game) to boost her right on over to the 10 status.

I could care less about her teeth. To me, Michelle Obama is a goddess.

Black Yoda said...

You teetering on the brink with this one. You about to join me in permanent pariah status if you make one more unflattering comment about any of the Obamas. The first thing I think a guy asks himself (well maybe it's just heterosexual, black men...or maybe it's just me:-) is, "Would I bang it out?" It's funny because I want to say I would, but I'm not sure if it's because I really want her or if it's because I really want her...to be cute and that's putting her over the edge. It's very unsettling to me. I've never had to face this problem before. It's usually either yes or no. Anyway, the whole monkey comparison is a bit far, but I'll be damned if Patrick Ewing couldn't have starred as Kong (King or Donkey. :-)

Reggie said...

I wouldn't say that The First Lady is gorgeous or anything like that; but I will say that she is an attractive woman. From my point of view anyway. I see her as strong and to be 50ish, she's got a physically appealing shape.

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
