Michelle Obama, the former First Lady of the US, was always known as a measured, yet enthusiastic speaker when addressing a gathering from the stage. However, she is not the First Lady any more and she has been busy promoting her book, "Becoming". As outspoken as she has always been, she seems to have loosened up a lot more since leaving the White House.
In an event over the weekend, speaking on marriage equality, "That's a lie." said Obama, "And it's not always enough to lean in, because that s**t doesn't work all the time," she said at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
To put some context into what she said, a report by Hollywood Life explains that "Lean In" is a phrase that was made popular by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook. The phrase was used as a title for a book she wrote on empowering women in the workplace.
Michelle Obama, however, took a rather interesting view of the subject in that she spoke of finding a balance between career and life- especially for women at the workplace. "That whole 'so you can have it all' nope, not at the same time," she said.
The Twitterverse lapped it up and according to the report, her fans online are loving it. "everything about yesterday was so inspiring even just hearing michelle obama curse lmao i love you MichelleObama thanks for being you!!!! #IAmBecoming," Tweeted one of her followers.
"Michelle Obama was PHENOMENAL at Barclays. Love her DOWN. And I'm giddy bc I heard her curse," said another follower.
"Despite waiting in the rain for an hour to get into the Barclays Center, I was just in the same room as MichelleObama and she accidentally said "shit" and it was amazing and my life has been forever changed," read a third Tweet on the incident.
