The Associated Press reports on Michelle Obama's self-proclaimed "mid-life crisis."

"Michelle Obama jokingly says a mid-life crisis is what inspired her new haircut with bangs," reports the AP.

The first lady revealed the new hairstyle last month on her 49th birthday, which came a few days before the festivities for President Barack Obama's second inauguration.

Mrs. Obama was asked about the new haircut during an interview with talk-show host Rachel Ray.

Said Mrs. Obama: "This is my mid-life crisis." She added that she cut her bangs because she can't get a sports car and won't be allowed to bungee jump.
