The future 1st Lady was on the hilariaous "Colbert Report" last night and was fabulous. This sista from Chi-Town is no joke! I love the statement she made about "4 spoons" in this clip. She's incredibly elegant, intelligent and gorgeous. Michelle Obama represented black women flawlessly!

Diamond Girl was my JAM back in the day!! Here in Miami this song is a local radio favorite and every time I hear it I remember the skating rink sessions with my friends jam skating! Thank God, guys don't dress and wear their hair like this anymore (well Prince still does).
