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!
