What’s better than seeing Michelle Obama speak about her memoir in person? Seeing Barack Obama surprising her as she does so. On Nov. 17, the former first lady discussed Becoming with Valerie Jarrett in Washington DC. As Michelle began talking about Barack and their marriage, the former president casually strolled out with a bouquet of pink roses.
The packed arena went wild and Michelle said, “You don’t get this at every show.” Barack then added, “This is like when JAY-Z comes out during a Beyoncé concert.” He then briefly joined in on the conversation and delighted the audience with anecdotes from when they began dating.
