Though some hard-to-please peeps don't love Michelle Obama's bangs, we think they look awesome!
And now FLOTUS has revealed the real reason behind the chop.
She was having a mid-life crisis!
During an interview with Rachael Ray set to air on Wednesday, the 49-year-old confesses:
"This is my mid-life crisis, the bangs. I couldn't get a sports car. They won't let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs."
Well, giving yourself a new look may not be as heart-pounding as bungee jumping, but it's definitely safer!
And way cheaper than a sports car!
We'll have to remember that if we ever feel a mid-life crisis coming on. Ha!

Last night marked the 2011 Daytime Emmy Awards held at the Hilton Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Among the celebs in attendance was Rachael Ray wearing a dress with a low cut in the cleavage area.
Showing a more sophisticated side was Marie Osmond who kept it classy in a little black dress as did Sherri Shepherd.
Meredith Vieira looked great in blue and Marlee Matlin added a splash of bright color to the red carpet.
As for Gladys Knight, she kept it fierce in a bold, red gown.

Well that was quick.
As we mentioned before, Dancing With The Stars costume designer Randall Christensen was bothered by the fact that Rachael Ray said she’d never wear one of those dresses from the competitions.
So Christensen wrote to Ray to complain and she issued not one, but two on air apologies.
Still, that wasn’t enough for him, so Randall said he’d only take her apology if she wore one of their dresses on her show. And Rachael did just that.
Airing on Thursday’s show, Rachael Ray wore a gorgeous red evening gown which featured 15,000 Swarovski crystals. Said Ray:
"It's just so intimidating. That was more skin than I show at the beach. I'm usually the girl in the long poncho.
I felt really awkward. You feel like you're showing people your naked, icky body."
On a positive note, she did like that it gave her a larger bust size. Added Ray:
“I liked that they build boobs into the dress. It's fun to have fake boobs for an hour and then give them back so you don't have to lug them around."
We’ll have to wait until Thursday’s episode to watch Ray in the dress have a quick dance with DWTS pro Tony Dovolani who was on set.

Either this was a cleverly orchestrated publicity stunt for Dancing With The Stars, or the show’s costume designer is just a bit too needy.
Rachael Ray recently commented that she would probably never do DWTS because she wouldn't “be caught dead” in one of those outfits.
DWTS wardrobe designer Randall Christensen was offended by her comments, wrote her a letter, and Ray actually apologized on her show, saying the dresses were beautiful, but that she wouldn’t wear one.
And yet that apology wasn’t enough so Christensen wrote in again and was even called during a taping of her show and said he’d only accept her apology if she’d wear one of his dresses on her show.
Can we say personal plug?
But having the bubbly personality that she does, Ray offered to wear one of his designs if he got it to her this week.
Check out the apology clip and his
demand request to have her wear one of his dresses above.
Rachael Ray is known for her bubbly personality. But it seems some didn’t take it so well when she commented on the outfits of the Dancing With The Stars contestants.
It all started when Rachael said she would never do DWTS because she wouldn't “be caught dead” in one of those outfits.
So wardrobe designer for DWTS Randall Christensen wrote to Rachael asking for an apology.
And she did. Ray reveals, "I was never trying to offend you or any of the great people that work with you, to produce such beautiful costumes."
Check out the entire apology above!
Cindy Crawford made an appearance on Rachael Ray's talk show yesterday and turns out Crawford's 8-year-old daughter Kaia thinks being a model is a skill-less job.
Apparently Kaia has bigger dreams like becoming a teacher or dancer, with Cindy adding:
“She said something really funny. She’s like, ‘But maybe I’ll model first, because you don’t need any special skills.
She’s kind of right. I mean, you do have to go to school for other stuff."
Check out the clip above to listen to Cindy talk about body image, her daughter, and keeping her out of the modeling industry for a while.
