Michelle Obama and Beyonce (inset)Michelle Obama wishes she was Beyonce Knowles.

The First Lady of the United States says that if she wasn't heading the White House in Washington D.C with American President Barack Obama, she would love to be a music artist.

"Gosh, if I had some gift, I'd be Beyonce. I'd be some great singer," she told People.

Michelle made the claim in a new interview with the magazine when asked if there was any celebrity or world figure with whom she'd switch lives: "The power of music, being able to play an instrument... It looks like musicians just have the most fun."

Her complimentary comments come over a month after Beyonce published a note praising the mother of Malia and Sasha. The "Love On Top" singer described her as a role model for her daughter with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter, and said the politician's wife is "the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman."
