Dig! Iman Not A Fan Of Michelle Obama

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionMichelle Obama

Legendary supermodel Iman gave First Lady Michelle Obama quite the backhanded compliment in a new interview with Parade Magazine!

Says Iman:

"Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty… But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age."

How nice… we think???

There must have been a kinder way to go about saying that!

    Iman? I'm a Man?



  2. 102

    Do we really care what this skinny arse, money spender, do fuck all has to say about this woman. Iman needs to keep her mouth shut and think about whats she's done for the world. Oh yeah fuck all nothing



  3. 103

    this one is not pretty - she is odd looking for sure - and the best thing about her is david bowie — she is hawking her junkie "designs" on hsn - horrible…



  4. 104

    who gives a damn what the first lady looks like people. Hello have you any of you made close to 500,000.00 a year?? Can you count that high? And Laura Bush, Sarah Palin were hot?? Damn white people and ignorant ethnic people make me sick!! and as far as that stank ass african(yes people you americans dont understand geography) the only reason she is in american is because she married an american but now she's married a bisexual brit, that is too funny!!



  5. 105

    maybe she just needs to open her mouth first, to say something negative about genital mutilation of little girls in africa first, before she rags on the way another woman looks…then maybe i'd have an ear for her 'opinion'.



  6. 106

    What's wrong? Iman is right!



  7. 107

    I wonder about the rest of this conversation.
    However Iman is right, and i dont think this is a back hand compliment at all…

    Dear "HiHater"~

    I don't think it was meant as an insult, at all. And I also met Iman with David Bowie and both of them were lovely~in looks and manners. She was very open and not some wicked bitch. Classy. And those of you who don't know who she is~she is an ICON, along with her husband. I wouldn't call Mrs. Obama a classic beauty but beautiful in many important ways. And I think that was what Iman was trying to say. That Michelle had the type of beauty that won't falter but better because it is on the inside, too.



  9. 109

    I am happy that she had beauty and influential dad. she woudl not any different than all of the lard applicators in her country.



  10. 110

    LOL. Isn't IMAN foreign? I'll give her the benefit of the doubt with that comment…maybe her English (errr, tact) aren't up tp par.



  11. 111

    Whether or not the statement she made is true, it doesn't matter. IT SHOULDN"T HAVE BEEN SAID. She could have made the same statement without the name or without the beauty statement and it would have been just as effective. If ya' ain't got anything nice to say then don't (doesn't apply to Perez though, lol).



  12. 112

    Don't understand Iman saying that about Mrs. Obama when IMAN looks more like a MAN…she is no beauty herself what is she talking about and her feet has anyone seen MAN feet??? So look at yourself first then make comments about somebody else…MAN



  13. 113

    SHE IS A TRANNY BEAST!



  14. 114

    M. Obama walks and looks like Aunt Esther from Sanford & Son…'cept Aunt Esther was cuter and more fem.



  15. 115

    glad someone had the guts to speak the truth, with the fawning, biased press going on about her like she's the second coming of Jackie O, get real, she's really quite ugly



  16. 116

    Iman is only saying what is true. Neither Obama or Michelle are hotties, they are just average looking couple in an extraordinary situation but that doesn't make Obama handsome or Michelle beautiful or even pretty. You can't have beauty, brains, charisma and a personality. The Obama's got the brains, personality and Obama obviously got the charisma as he is the first black president.



  17. 117

    Lol Iman is soooo overrated, she looks pretty manly. M. Obama is not the most beautiful one but at least she has brains…



  18. 118

    oh and she looks like Tyra's tranny grandma…



  19. 119

    couldn't agree more!



  20. 120

    wow. goes to show that "great beauties" can't even express themselves correctly.

    michelle obama is a trillion times more beautiful than that ignorant iman.



  21. 121

    Well , honetsly she really spoke nothing but the truth. i love Mrs. Obama but what she's supossed to kiss her ass becuase she's the first lady? She's NOT conventionally beautiful, but there is beauty in her carriage and in her mind and in her spirit and THAT makes her beautiful.

    And Iman is striking- always has been. Don't diss just because you don't like what she said.



  22. 122

    Re: piazzasbuttplug – this doesn't even make any sense.

    .
    .
    .
    HEY IMAN, DEFINE "A GREAT BEAUTY" — "INTERESTING LOOKING"?! ARE WE TO ASSUME YOU ARE "A GREAT BEAUTY" - YOU HAVE GONE DOWNHILL BECAUSE NO IS EVEN THINKING OF YOUR DUMB ASS. :o :o
    .
    .
    twit me @morenamami :)

  24. 124

    Um, I-MAN, look in the mirror. You look like a hot mess tranny.



  25. 125

    She's absolutely right - she's only being honest - Michelle Obama is really ugly!!!! She looks like ape!

  26. Oma says – reply to this


    126

    I think Mrs. Obama is a very elegant woman and dresses extremely well



  27. 127

    Re: Oma – Elegant? She needs fricking jaw surgery!



  28. 128

    well iman is the last person who should be talking….
    she's not too beautiful either.



  29. 129

    Bitch doesn't want to see a sister get ahead. Needs to get back to her gay, white, washed-up husband and her never-got-off-the-groundfloor career.



  30. 130

    Re: verna55 – did you swallow the rest of that dachshund?



  31. 131

    Hmmmm as opposed to looking like a tranny. That woman looks like a man. Def a fine judge of Michelle Obama's looks.



  32. 132

    Re: moffifox – Actually Iman has done quite a bit of children's charity work for Africa and USA. She's not an idiot and speaks quite a few languages. And she looks damn good for a lady in her 50's. She's actually a fan of Michelle Obama and she paid her high compliments. I'm sure this comment is completely out of context and was not meant to sound otherwise.

    Why what have you done for the world?



  33. 133

    Screw Iman….she's a washed up hasbeen jealous of Michelle Obama swagger!!! Put down the haterade and go do something notable…smh



  34. 134

    Why does her telling the truth mean she is not a "fan"? Michelle is not a beauty. That is a pure and simple fact. So what? There you go again - putting words in someones mouth.



  35. 135

    Re: PDidda – Are you nuts or just stupid?! Iman was hailed IMMEDIATELY by the fashion world as a GREAT beauty - discovered in Somalia by the photographer Beard - there was NO ONE in the fashion industry who ever disputed that fact.



  36. 136

    Re: jingo – You idiot. She was NEVER a refugee from Ethiopia. She was discovered in Somalia by the great photographer Peter Beard. Brought to the US - hailed as a GREAT beauty and embraced by the fashion industry. STFU unless you know what you're talking about!



  37. 137

    Jealous much, Iman?



  38. 138

    Iman looks hot though.
