Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Real life woman who helps run the world, Michelle Obama has accomplished many, Harvard approved things in her life. Yet, in an interview she said, if she had it all to do over again she'd choose the career path called "Beyonce." This is of course the box we all wished we'd checked under desired college major. Minor in "Bow Down." FLOTUS ends the video with a plug for tuition aid because (cue the sound of reality smacking you in the face) no one can really be Beyonce!

You asked. The First Lady and @Wale answered. #ReachHigher
