I apologize, I’ve been so busy covering the BBB tour that I’ve slighted Lady M’s equally important activities.
I know you’ve heard about the release of her upcoming hip hop album, “Songs For a Healthier America.” The 19-track album, with song titles like “U R What You Eat” and “Veggie Luv” will be released by the Partnership for a Healthier America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Organizing For Action (OFA), previously known as Organizing for America (OFA). And Lady M will be appearing in – count them – no less than ten of the accompanying musical videos! Not rapping, butt doing what she does best; dancing:
And don’t worry, the lyrics have all been carefully “curated” to make sure they are all G-rated, unlike the triple X-rated Big Guy faves, Jay-Z and Kanye (warning #2 – XXX rated!).
So I’m sure it will be a lot of fun, even though all of the artists are either unknowns or has-beens in the world of hip hop. I guess Beyoncé was busy and Jay-Z can’t do anything without using profanity and the n-word. Or maybe they had another romantic photo op in Cuba pre-booked.
And since we’re back on the fitness trail, Lady M kicked off the 2013 U.S. yesterday in Queens, N.Y., telling the sympathetic crowd that she grew up in a neighborhood in Chicago deprived of the opportunity to play tennis. She explained that she forced her children to play because it’s a
white sport “a lifelong sport” that she wanted the girls to enjoy; and she bemoaned the fact that she herself hadn’t learn to play till later in life:
“It’s a great way to stay healthy, to stay fit, it’s a lifelong sport, it’s something I’ve tried to tell my kids — I forced them into playing tennis, because I didn’t want them to be like me,[WHAT?!] but it’s a great way to stay active,”
…the first lady said. “And today I don’t worry about how good I am, because I’m not very good, so it’s easy.”
And she passed on some advice to novice tennis players on how to be just like her, not very good:
She went on to sing the praises of some additional benefits to be derived from practicing your tennis game regularly:
“If you want to be good at anything, you have to work at it,” she said. “I know your parents tell you that all the time, but I want to emphasize it, if you want to be good at anything, you have to put the work in,” she said.
I wonder if that works for everything? Because it sure doesn’t seem to be working for Big Guy:
At golf, I mean.
