Michelle Obama's longtime stylist Meredith Koop has collaborated on a collection of vote-themed clothing and merchandise by Black-owned brands in partnership with the former First Lady's non-profit organization When We All Vote.

In a new post on her Instagram page, Mrs. Obama dons a white T-shirt with the words: "Reimagine our future when we all vote."

She captioned the image: "There are so many ways for us to express ourselves and our views––and voting is one of our most powerful tools for doing just that. Excited for @WhenWeAllVote's launch of #Vote4everMerch, a collection of fun apparel and accessories to get us all geared up to vote this fall: vote4evermerch.com."

The T-shirt and other clothing imprinted with the phrase are on sale on Vote4EverMerch.com.

The Vote 4Ever collection features apparel and accessories such as face masks, makeup, candles, coffee mugs and home decor.

Each item is imprinted with the words "vote" to encourage young people to show up at the polls or vote by mail.

"The vision for this collection was to create unique covetable pieces in collaboration with talented creatives and business owners around the country," said Koop in a statement. "With so many 'vote' products on the market, we put a lot of energy and soul into curating high-quality products that are thoughtfully designed."

Koop has been dressing Michelle for 10 years.

Michelle Obama insists her marriage to former President of the U.S. Barack Obama is not on the rocks, even though it is far from perfect.

The former First Lady, who will celebrate her 28th wedding anniversary with Barack next month, spoke candidly about the ups and downs of her marriage with guest Conan O'Brien on the latest installment of The Michelle Obama Podcast.

Michelle, who reportedly suffers from situational depression, seemed to confirm rumors that she and Barack are often at war with each other.

"There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it's like, you've got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn't mean you quit," she says.

She also admitted that they sometimes live apart in the 5 mansions they own. "And these periods can last a long time. They can last years."

Michelle, pictured with Barack during happier times, said no marriage is perfect and she went on to share advice for women looking for that perfect man (hint: he doesn't exist).

Mrs. Obama said searching for a suitable life partner is like assembling an all-star basketball team.

"You want LeBron (James). You don't want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn't make the team, but we often don't think about that," she shares.

"What you're supposed to say, is, 'I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron,'" said Michelle.

Some social media users took that as a diss toward women like singer Monica Arnold, who married L.A. Lakers bench warmer Shannon Brown, only to see him get cut by the team a year later. Brown is now a used car salesman in Atlanta.

The 'Becoming' author also stressed the importance of giving yourself time to see the person you're dating "in an array of situations," and insists, "You can't Tinder your way into a long-term relationship."

"There's no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody, being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment, to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen," she adds.

Michelle Obama attacked President Donald Trump in a blistering speech during the virtual Democratic National Convention on Monday night.

Some of the scheduled speakers phoned in their speeches due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Mrs. Obama closed out the first night of the virtual DNC with an impassioned 18-minute speech.

Speaking via livestream from her $11 million Hamptons mansion -- one of five mansions the Obamas own -- the former first lady called Trump "the wrong president for our country."

"Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head," she said.

She added: "He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is."

Mrs. Obama praised Democratic nominee Joe Biden, calling him a "profoundly decent man."

She showed signs of emotional stress during her speech. She previously said she was struggling with "some form of low-grade depression" due to the Trump administration's "hypocrisy".

During her podcast earlier this month, Obama said the hypocrisy of the Trump administration keeps her up at night.

Among her symptoms are insomnia, mood disturbances, anxiety, stress, and lack of motivation in her normal daily routines.

"I'm waking up in the middle of the night, cause I'm worrying about something, or there's a heaviness," she said.

Obama added, "You know, um, so I, I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting."

President Trump mocked her pre-recorded speech during a campaign stop ahead of the Democratic convention.

Trump told supporters in Minnesota. "Why don't they tell me that? I'll tape my speech next week. It's a lot easier."

"I'm waking up in the middle of the night, cause I'm worrying about something, or there's a heaviness. I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine, where I just have felt too low. You know, I've gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don't feel yourself, and sometimes there's been a week or so where I had to surrender to that, and not be so hard on myself. And say, you know what, you're just not feeling that treadmill right now."

She added, "It is unusual, and it is, you know, it's a direct result of just being out of, out of body, out of mind. And spiritually, these are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually. You know, um, so I, I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting."

When asked how she deals with hr depression, Obama said, "My spirit is lifted when I'm feeling healthy when I'm surrounded by good people. I reach out to my family, and to my friends, even in this time of quarantine. You know, I fought to continue to find a way to stay connected to the people in my life who bring me joy, and my girlfriends, my husband, my kids; it's the small things."

She continued: "It's the small rituals. For me, there is no magic to it, but it is effort because you have to recognize that you're in a place, a bad place, in order to get out of it. So you kind of have to sit in it for a minute, to know, oh oh, I'm feeling off. So now I gotta, I gotta feed myself with something better."

Obama is an unlicensed therapist who provides counseling sessions to her celebrity friends, such as rapper Common.

Michelle Obama is still recovering from the "trauma" of Black people not going to the polls to elect Hillary Clinton as president in 2016.

While promoting her upcoming Netflix documentary Becoming, Mrs. Obama said Black people not showing up to vote in the 2016 presidential election was like a "slap in the face".

"It takes some energy to go high, and we were exhausted from it ... when you're the first black anything," she said, referring to her and husband, former President Barack Obama's failed attempts to help then-candidate Hillary Clinton win the election.

Michelle Obama, 56, was bitterly disappointed when Black Americans ignored her and Barack's pleas to go to the polls.

The Obamas were so sure Clinton would win, that they leased a mansion right down the street from the White House. Barack Obama had hoped Clinton would continue his liberal policies and the LGBQ agenda that became part of his legacy.

She struggled to keep her emotions in check the day she and Barack moved out of the White House on President Donald Trump's Inauguration Day. She took it personally when Clinton lost the election.

"You know, the day I left the White House, it was painful to sit on that stage," she said, "and then a lot of our folks didn't vote -- it was almost a slap in the face."

She added: "It wasn't just in this election, but every midterm, every time Barack didn't get the Congress he needed, that was because our folks didn't show up. After all that work, they just couldn't be bothered to vote at all. That's my trauma."

Mrs. Obama slammed the door on any hopes the Democrats may have of her as Joe Biden's running mate.

"Now we're out of the White House, not to be viewed, judged and parceled by every other person on the planet - yeah, it's better, it's absolutely freeing."

"Barack and I are not interested in being at the forefront forever — not even for that much longer," she said.

Instagram trolls forced Oprah Winfrey to turn off her comments after the conviction of her good friend Harvey Weinstein.

Oprah, 66, turned off her comments after a Manhattan jury found Weinstein guilty of 2 out of 5 sex assault charges on Monday.

Weinstein, 67, suffered chest pains after the verdicts were announced. He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he is in stable condition and confined to a wheelchair.

Oprah's IG followers were unable to leave comments under her posts after the verdict. But she turned her comments back on by Tuesday morning.

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did respond to a reporter's questions about her good friend, Weinstein.

Clinton, who is in Berlin promoting her new Hulu documentary, said the verdict "speaks for itself."

The former first lady was a bit defensive when asked about Weinstein's donations to both of her failed presidential campaigns.

"He contributed to Barack Obama's campaign and John Kerry's campaign and Al Gore's campaign and everybody's campaign," she said.

She denied knowing about Weinstein's predatory behavior with Hollywood starlets desperate for roles in his films.

"How could we have known? He raised money for me, the Obamas, for Democrats in general."

President Trump called Weinstein's conviction "a great victory for women." He claimed he was never a fan of the disgraced movie mogul.

But he noted that Weinstein and former first lady Michelle Obama were great friends.

"The people who liked him were Democrats," said Trump. "Michelle Obama loved him, loved him. Hillary Clinton loved him," the president said during a press conference in New Delhi.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are catching heat on social media after they purchased a $12 million mansion in exclusive Martha's Vineyard.

The home is the latest multi-million dollar property in the Obamas' real estate portfolio. They also own mansions in Hawaii, California and Washington, D.C.

The opulent 6,892-square-foot home features seven bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a detached barn and a pool. The home faces the Edgartown Great Pond.

Some on Black Twitter are not comfortable with the Obamas' excessive displays of wealth.

One Twitter user wrote: "Obama sitting pretty in Marthas vineyard whilst Americans lost their homes due to his astounding incompetence. Bailed out wall street instead of the American people. d bag."

Another tweeted:

"Nothing sets a better example for the 'urgency' of 'climate change' than buying a $12,000,000 mansion on an island 'marthas vineyard' In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean all the while crying about the dangers of the rise of sea level. Obama did!"

But others defended the former First Couple.

"The Obamas are among the most successful black people in recent history & fools are out there upset that they're living about as well as your average white Tech executive."

Michelle Obama has invited actress Julia Roberts to join her girls' empowerment trip to Vietnam and Malaysia. Roberts, 52, is best known for her role as a thoughtful hooker in the romantic comedy film Pretty Woman (1990).

The invitation raised eyebrows on Black Twitter where users are still angry that Roberts was being considered to play Harriet Tubman.

The former First Lady previously teased special guests would join her for the overseas visits.

On Monday, Dec. 2, officials at The Obama Foundation announced that the actress and TV personality Jenna Bush Hager will join Mrs. Obama on the trips, according to WENN.com.

Bosses at the Girls Opportunity Alliance initiative, developed by the Obama Foundation, will join Obama, 55, and the stars when they meet with Vietnamese girls' education organizations beginning on Dec. 9.

Screenplay writer Gregory Allen Howard spent 10 years trying to get a Hollywood studio to green light his script about the famed abolitionist who led thousands of slaves to freedom.

After "Harriet" opened in theaters last month, Howard recalled his first meeting with a Hollywood bigwig about the script in 1994.

"This script is fantastic. Let's get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman," an executive told Howard. But the lone Black producer in the room spoke up, reminding the others that Tubman was Black.

"That was so long ago," the executive responded. "No one is going to know the difference."

Howard did not publicly reveal the name of the studio or the executive.

Michelle Obama shared a childhood photo from her school yearbook to mark the Day of Charity on Thursday Sept. 5.

The back-to-school photo shows 10-year-old Michelle displaying a toothy grin and bangs over her forehead.

In the photo caption on Instagram.com, Michelle said every girl deserves a good education and the same opportunities she's had.

"It's so easy for us to take our education for granted, especially here in the United States. Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school," she wrote.

"I learned a lot in school," she continued, "how to do my multiplication tables and structure a paragraph, yes, but also how to push myself, be a good friend, and dust myself off after a failure."

She added, "I believe every girl on the planet deserves the same kind of opportunities that I’ve had ... Girls who go to school have healthier children, higher salaries, lower poverty rates, and they can even help boost their entire nation's economy.

"The future of our world is only as bright as our girls," she wrote.

Michelle, 55, shares two grown daughters with former President Barack Obama, 58.

It’s after Labor Day, so I’m thinking about all the young people heading back to school and reflecting on my own days as a student in Chicago. I learned a lot in school—how to do my multiplication tables and structure a paragraph, yes, but also how to push myself, be a good friend, and dust myself off after a failure. It’s so easy for us to take our education for granted, especially here in the United States. Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. I believe every girl on the planet deserves the same kind of opportunities that I’ve had—a chance to fulfill her potential and pursue her dreams. We know that when we give girls a chance to learn, they’ll seize it. And when they do, our whole world benefits. Girls who go to school have healthier children, higher salaries, lower poverty rates, and they can even help boost their entire nation’s economy. So today on #WorldCharityDay, I want you to share your favorite #BackToSchool photo and to join the @girlsopportunityalliance to take action for global girls’ education. Visit the link in my bio to learn more—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls.
