Michelle Obama: 'This is my midlife crisis: the bangs'

Obama debuted her new look via her Twitter account shortly before her 49th birthday and before President Obama began his second term in office.

"I couldn't get a sports car. They won't let me bungee-jump. So instead, I cut my bangs," she said.

The first lady and Ray, who works with Obama on her healthy eating program, also discussed their favorite Academy Award nominees, according to reports.
