It's another demonstration of the ongoing love fest between first lady Michelle Obama and the first lady of pop music, Beyoncé.

Obama released a video snippet on Instagram of an interview she did with rapper Wale during a college-preparation event at the White House a few weeks back.


When Wale asked what advice Obama would give her college self, she responded: "Don't be afraid and to ask for help."

"If you had the opportunity to have a different occupation, what would it be?" Wale asked Obama.

"I would be Beyoncé," she said. "I got the hands up!" Obama said, as she did the hand gesture made popular in Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies' video.
