Michelle Obama Isn't Against Plastic Surgery

The First Lady is turning 50 on January 17, so naturally, during her recent interview with People magazine, they asked her what she thought about, um, reversing the aging process. Like the diplomatic and wonderful woman she is, here's what Michelle Obama had to say about plastic surgery and Botox:

Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves. Right now, I don't imagine that I would go that route, but I've also learned to never say never.

For Obama, it's all about being as healthy as she can be, which means getting regular check-ups, exercising and eating well. But that doesn't mean she's counting calories. "I don't obsess about what I eat, but I do make sure that I'm eating vegetables and fruit," Obama told People.

When it comes to exercising, Obama's routine is well-balanced, but she's definitely tailored her regimen for her age. "I'm seeing myself shift from weight-bearing stuff — even though that continues to be important — and the heavy cardio and running, to things like yoga that will keep me flexible."

The First Lady will be celebrating her big milestone with a fabulous dance party thrown by her husband, the President himself. There's no word on who will be there to provide the musical entertainment, but according to Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser who is close to the Obamas, "There's one thing I can tell you for sure ... people will move."

Mr. and Mrs. Carter, do we hear you?
