First lady answers ‘boxers or briefs?’ for Obama

Although former President Bill Clinton told MTV in 1992 he prefers boxers, America might never know the real answer to the “boxers or briefs?” question for Obama. Us magazine asked then-Sen. Obama the same thing in 2008 and he refused to answer.

“I don’t answer those humiliating questions. But whichever one it is, I look good in ’em!” he said.

ABC’s morning show duo didn’t catch the first lady off guard with their other probing questions about life inside the White House.

The first lady said her nickname for Obama is “honey,” adding, “I’m trying to think of the ones I’ll say out loud.”

She revealed her celebrity crushes include Denzel Washington, George Clooney and Will Smith and said, “I could go on.”

She also said she enjoys watching the "Real Housewives" reality show “every now and then” and her go-to karaoke song is anything by Stevie Wonder.

“ ‘You Are the Sunshine of My Life,’ I’ll sing that all day. But not now,” she said. President Obama memorably sang a few lines of Al Green at a fundraiser earlier this year, and his wife confirmed that Al Green and Marvin Gaye are the president’s go-to karaoke artists.

“He can sing; I can dance,” Michelle Obama said of her husband.
