Michelle Obama has a sweet tooth for Cookie — and we're not talking about the dessert!

Taraji P. Henson stopped by Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live where she revealed that the First Lady and President Barack Obama, like the rest of us, are HUGE fans of her hit show Empire!

The 45-year-old explained that when series creator Lee Daniels attended the last White House State Dinner, the Obamas totally gushed about the hip-hop drama — the President even referenced an episode from season 1!

Michelle Obama & Charlize Theron Team Up To Deliver Inspiring Advice To Young Girls — 'We Have To Raise Our Own Bars'

What a dynamic duo!

On Tuesday, Charlize Theron and Michelle Obama teamed up to deliver some amazing advice at Glamour's The Power of an Educated Girl event in New York. Considering the two are both strong women and have daughters, we think they were the perfect choice for the speaking engagement!

The inspiring duo, who both aim to increase young girls access to education, strongly advised the audience to forgo a boy's attention for personal empowerment.

In fact, Michelle joked that if she cared about what other people thought, she wouldn't be married to the President of the Untied States today! Obama said:

"Let's just be clear you don't want to be with a boy that's too stupid to know you're a smart, young lady and I want to encourage all of us as young women, as older women, we have to raise our own bars, you will not be successful hanging around people who drag you down. There is no boy at this age that is cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting your education. If I worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn't be married to the President of the United States."

Preach, girl! All too often women give up their dreams for men!

Theron echoed the mom of two's statement, adding:

"There is nothing sexier than a smart woman. We have been told to live by a certain mold, especially women, and it's time to break it and it's up to us to do that. Stop waiting for men to do that, look in the mirror and see yourself and say I am sexy, I am attractive, I am smart, I am intelligent, I am powerful, I have a voice, I look cute in these jeans. Yes, I don't have long hair, I have short hair but I am still a girl and I'm still hot."

Woot! The actress definitely knows what she's talking about, especially since she's raising two kids solo! Not to mention the gorgeous gal has been involved in women's right organizations for years.

Hopefully these two pair up again sooner than later — women need all the influential advocates they can get!

You might think Michelle Obama has everything in the palm of her hand, but even being the First Lady of the United States has its drawbacks!

FLOTUS stopped by The Late Show Monday night where Stephen Colbert reminded her that she only had a little over a year left at the White House.

Surprisingly, the 51-year-old revealed the family was "counting down" to the days where they could return to life as normal civilians!

The First Lady then explained that there were certain controls the First Family is deprived of that she can't wait to be allowed to do again — like going to Target!

But buying stylish apparel at affordable prices doesn't top this other tiny luxury Obama has been deprived of! Find out what she misses the most in the video (below)!
