The First Lady now has two accounts fans and supporters can follow.
Check out why we’re having a frothy latte this morning:
• First Lady Michelle Obama not only got a new hairdo for her 49th birthday, but she opened a brand spanking new Twitter account. @FLOTUS is the newest handle for Mrs. Obama. It’s run by her personal office and will post updates and pictures. When it’s her tweeting personally, the messages will be signed -mo. Within minutes, @FLOTUS earned 8,000 followers.

• Michelle Williams is opening up about her battle with depression. She told the Associated Press she went through a dark time when she was about 15 or 16 years old. Now, she encourages those who are depressed to seek professional help. “We’re taught, ‘Just go to church and pray about it,” said Williams. “The Lord is going to heal you.’ Well, in the meantime, I believe God-gifted people, physicians, doctors, therapists-that’s your healing. Take advantage of it.” [Associated Press]
• Rihanna will rock Atlantic City this coming spring. According to Revel’s Twitter account, the pop princess will perform on April 26 at the luxury casino and hotel. She’s the latest act to perform at the New Jersey hot spot. Others include Kanye West and Beyoncé. [That Grape Juice]
• Oklahoma City Thunder player Kevin Durant has a potty mouth. His grandmother knows it, and she isn’t so pleased with his language on the court. After a recent game she texted him, “Kev Kev stop cussing so much they be showing u when u do.” He responded, “Haha sorry grandma I be so emotional, I love u…” [Grio]
