Being the first lady is pretty sweet, but Michelle Obama wouldn’t mind trading places with Beyoncé.

Michelle’s got a pretty great gig: She’s married to President Barack Obama, she’s got two lovely daughters, she’s a style icon, she motivates people to get fit and she is hands down the coolest first lady ever.

But People magazine still has to ask, “If you could be someone else, who would you be?” She could only come up with one name.

“Gosh. If I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé … I’d be some great singer,”  Michelle said.

Having pipes like Bey would make it easier for her to kep up with the president’s skills on the mic.

Michelle’s answer should come as no surprise, though. She and Bey have openly expressed their admiration for one another this year, and they work together on Michelle’s Let’s Move campaign to combat childhood obesity.
