Michelle Obama Brushes Off Criticism Over Oscars, Bangs

Michelle Obama's Oscars cameo.

Michelle Obama told the AP that she's "absolutely not surprised" about the criticism of her Oscars cameo (apparently some felt she "upstaged" the award-winners). "Shoot, my bangs set off a national conversation," she said. "My shoes can set off a national conversation. That's just sort of where we are. We've got a lot of talking going on." Does it freak her out? "I just don't think about that stuff," she explained. "It's like everybody's kitchen-table conversation is now accessible to everybody else, so there's a national conversation about anything." ANYTHING. It's true.
