She can even do that thing with her hand from the Single Ladies video

If you needed any more proof that Michelle Obama was a) cool, b) relatable and c) probably loads of fun on a wedding dance floor, look no further than her latest interview.

The FLOTUS held a Q&A as part of her Beating the Odds summit at the White House, and was asked by rapper Wale (no, we’re not sure why he was interviewing her either) what career she’d pursue if she wasn’t a lawyer, writer and political boss.

“I would be Beyonce,” she says. Which is basically the most perfect answer.

“I’ve got the hands,” she added, before doing the Single Ladies move like a pro.

She was also asked what advice she'd give her younger self, to which she said "Don't be afraid, and to ask for help."

She also 'made it rain' by preteding to hurl cash through the air.

What a time to be alive.

Currently there are no petitions on Change.org campaigning for Beyonce and Obama to swap jobs for a week but this article will be updated if it does.
