Here's This Epic Michelle Obama Cover That Twitter Can't Stop Talking About

Next time, we need the invite when aunty Oprah and mama Michelle are together/

This morning Elle blessed ALL of our timelines with an amazing cover of my forever first lady, Michelle Obama. Not ONLY did we get Mrs. Obama, but the interview was done by none other than Auntie Oprah.

Upon the release of her memoir, Becoming, Obama opened up about all things life, love, and just being the dynamic woman that she is.

#MichelleObama opens up about early marriage struggles with #BarackObama: "He’s a plate spinner and it’s not exciting unless one’s about to fall. So there was work we had to do as a couple. Counseling we had to do to work through this stuff." https://t.co/Kej0O9klLa https://t.co/bkqaaZgr7A

People couldn't get over the cover, like @airalli, who noted that it was everything they didn't know they needed, and honestly SAAAAAME:

The epic cover took @Beingbeeroyster to church and our spirits felt it:

This Instagram user wants to see this everyday, and I'm not opposed:

Twitter pointed out how they've "missed her voice and presence"...

@ELLEmagazine @MichelleObama @Oprah This was an insightful, inspiring, candid conversation and article between Oprah and the First Lady. The pictures are stunning, and I can’t wait to read her book tomorrow. Thank you for this. I’ve missed her voice and presence. 💗

...And how in true First Lady form, "Michelle Obama bodied this shoot" 💅🏽:

This Twitter user pointed out how Lady O is truly "lookin' good":

@ELLEmagazine @renitamanley @MichelleObama @Oprah Damnit, Mrs. Obama you better do it! Lookin' good, my sistuh! @MichelleObama https://t.co/3XzSNusE7Q

@TheRoseJolie told us that this photo "should be in every history book," and that's nothing but facts:

@ELLEmagazine @Oprah @MichelleObama This photo should be in every history book

Today is a new day for @MillsConnection:

@ELLEmagazine @MichelleObama @Oprah I have never gotten this magazine but I will buy this one with @MichelleObama on the cover

@__Yazrocks loved the interview, especially Obama's discussion on marriage counseling and how important it is "to let people know it's OK":

@ELLEmagazine @MichelleObama @Oprah I love this level of honesty from #MichelleObama about going to marriage counseling. It's important to let people know it's OK.

@Immaris was basically all of us when she tweeted how the interview gave her that same spark she felt when the Obamas were elected the second time around:

@ELLEmagazine @MichelleObama @Oprah The last question if Mrs Obama feels optimistic for the country and tears up while responding, “We have to be.” got me sobbing like it was November 9, 2016.

And @Zenfulie summed up the whole interview and editorial shoot in one word:

Anyways, I'm here for this cover and this #BlackGirlMagic, k thanks!
