Michelle Obama Swore In Front Of Sold-Out Crowd, Setting Internet Ablaze

The former United States first lady is in the British capital, London, to promote her hotly anticipated book, "Becoming".

Former first lady Michelle Obama stunned a crowd with the words she chose to criticize a popular feminist narrative during a speech Sunday.

"Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she'd have a life like this, and the pressure you feel-from yourself and from others-can sometimes feel like a lot", the Becoming author says in Good Housekeeping's January issue.

"It's not always enough to lean in because that s-- doesn't work all the time", she reportedly said.

Mrs Obama added that her husband had always had a great affection for the Queen, saying: "Barack is so incredibly fond of Her Majesty and I won't go into his fangirling but I think it's because she does remind him of his grandmother Toot, she's smart and amusing and honest".

Following her appearance at Barclays, Obama rescheduled a few of the stops on her book tour to attend the funeral of George H.W. Bush.

Obama also discussed techniques she's learned to be more approachable.

The prime minister has argued that he is the victim of a left-wing and media conspiracy to topple his conservative government. Hefetz was, police say, desperate to do something about the Elovitch investigation he believed was underway.

While the Obamas have a seemingly flawless marriage, the forever FLOTUS admitted it takes hard work to keep it going.

Why? Well one reason is that "marriage still ain't equal, y'all", according to Obama. If you're thinking about my thoughts when I come out on stage it's "don't" fall'.

She said the idea that women could have it all at the same time was "a lie". "I think it's okay, it's good, even, to do that". Many on social media praised Obama for being "real" about the struggles working women face.

"I'm back now", Obama said, smiling and looking a bit sheepish.

She revealed to Mrs Adichie: "Here's the secret". But her words have an element of truth that Sheryl Sandberg's optimistic ideology about "leaning in" to have it all doesn't take into account.

"The best advice I can give here is the simplest: I think everyone just has to be themselves", she said. In a 2015 essay, New York Magazine contributing editor Lisa Miller explained how the labor force's unkind treatment of women affects not only older workers, but also young, ambitious professionals looking for role models.

Obama said that marriage should be hard work, given it involves two independent individuals coming together to build a life forever - also, she was blunt about how kids can cause havoc on a relationship. "But after a while, I realized that I had every reason to be in those environments".
