NEW YORK — She’s got rhythm. First Lady Michelle Obama reeled in a flock of east coast celebs, including actress Julianna Margulies and rap artist Common, to celebrate the 3rd Annual College Signing Day on Tuesday in New York. Donning a black Princeton T-shirt, Mrs. Obama saluted nearly 5,000 Big Apple high-school students who are headed to college. She even danced on stage to the tune of a hyped hip hop beat after offering some sound advice.

“We are so proud of everything you’ve achieved, and we don’t take the struggle for granted,” Mrs. Obama told the teens assembled at the 369 Harlem Armory Center. “I am no different from you all. My parents didn’t have money. I went to public school. We didn’t have a whole lot of examples to follow.”

“But I know that if I can do it, you can do it, too,” she added.

Like her presidential hubby, the First Lady certainly understands what it takes to succeed at the collegiate level and beyond. A graduate of both Princeton University and Harvard Law School, Mrs. Obama spent the early part of her legal career working at the law firm Sidley Austin, where she met her soulmate — President Barack Obama.

SNL’s Jay Pharoah and MTV joined Mrs. Obama to host the event.

    Black people shouldn’t be in school, that’s cultural appropriation.

  5. @Jotunn Dovregubben: You did go to school and still you don’t know anything, now that’s sad

  6. Please….optics are horrible, she doesnt really care as her daughters are in a high dollar private school, she doesnt care as represented by her ONE Tweet on the girls kidnapped by Boko Haram…if she really cared she would have persisted in the quest to “Bring Back Our Girls”….phony, phony, phony.

    Love this First Lady.

  14. If black kids CARED about their education they would have better grades in high school, they would take advantage of student loans and go to Community College or a four year. They don’t WANT to learn and they have said so many times before. They find it easier to hustle the streets without student loans. If they go to jail, they accept it and in most cases they consider it a badge of honor.
    Did you know that the black kids who do decide to leave the ghetto are looked upon as broken by their peers? That they are sell-outs or called half-whites? So yeah, go ahead and spend the money trying to get more black kids into school. That racist law called Affirmative Action has been proven to of failed but just like the school drug program DARE, it’s still used even though its been proven to not work!

  15. Misguided attempt at motivating black America….She apparently needs new advisors because this is embarrassing to say the least and thats being kind!

  16. Why won’t s/he focus on her poisonous school meals?

  17. work it 1st lady!!!!!!!
