Barack and Michelle on the Cover of Essence

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Here is a preview of the double cover of the upcoming issue of Essence; and the world’s most influential and eloquent couple bless it. Although the pick with Hillary may be kind of shady, we will not lose faith so quickly in our man of the millennium. They look spectacular.

We have pictures of them attending a friends funeral in Chi-Town over the weekend when you…

    I wanna thank my momma, my sisters, and my job for having me work from home to be able to comment…

  • Oshie - I have nothing witty to add to my name today

    It’s 5:20? So I can leave work now???

  • Yes I Said It

    Something looks “off” about those pictures. There’s either too much makeup on them, or somebody did a bad job of airbrushing the pictures.

  • tired as hell, damn mondays

    michelle is so beautiful and barack knows he would get it if i wasnt scared of his wifey, the clintons better watch out cause michelle most def wont be having bill and barack hang out on the low..

  • nakrich

    Michelle looks breath-taking and our future president belongs on the cover of GQ as World’s Sexiest Man. I am sure that our country will benefit from such a strong, power couple in the White House.

  • Nina Knows

    Those are some really beautiful cover pictures. I really like them socially.

  • NYC Gal

    I hope I get the Essence with the Future First Lady on it! She looks so beautiful on the cover! I can’t wait for her to be in the White House!

  • blakndn

    Dare I say it? They are the best-looking President and First Lady in THE HISTORY of our country. I say we petition to have President Elect Barack Obama put on the $100 bill of the U.S. currency.

    ***Classic sh*t. . .only fitting Essence did it.

  • MissBlaze43

    They both look so good on the covers. If there’s two separate covers I’m going to have to just buy both copies.

    I’m out, y’all, I’m ready to go home now.

  • MissBlaze43

    @ Yes I said it.

    Yeah, Barack’s head looks bigger and Michelle’s looks smaller… LOL You WOULD catch that.

    It does look kind of off though… yeah, something ain’t right.

  • Ermy Erm (It's a Mini-Blizzard Outside)

    It might look off cuz Michelle not that pretty… yeah i said it!

  • blaq

    Ermy Erm

    On behalf of all Canadians who visit the site let me be the first to say what a beautiful cover picture Essence have done of the President Elect, Mr. Barack Obama, and his Bright & Beautiful Wife First Lady (in waiting) Mrs. Michelle Obama. They make me wish I was an Amarican.

  • VTechGirl

    ENOUGH already! I am tired of all the star gazing fans…Yall know Michelle is ugly…just plain ugly…who has a scrimp for a husband who happens to be the President Elect.

  • Sydney


    “Yall know Michelle is ugly…just plain ugly”

    No, actually we don’t — but your attitude is.

    Riddle me this, who has been on more magazine covers, is now a fashion icon, and will soon grace the cover of the fashion bible, Vogue? You or Michelle?

    Oh, and that “scrimp” she’s married to only happens to be the next head of the country.

    Hmmm. . .



  • VTechGirl


    Good grief…Get off the Kool and come back down to earth. I care nothing about magazine covers, nor do I idolize anyone. I only worship my God in Heaven.


    Vtechgirl is such a hater…..girl get over it. You will be seeing alot more of them in the next few months. So unless you are gonna move to the moon or crawl under a rock…. STFU!!!!!

  • VTechGirl

    It doesn’t bother me at all to see them, but it is disturbing to see maniac worshippers like you who’s mind has been taken over by the Obamas Kool Aid to try to chew me out for my opinion. It is my opinion and if you think she is beautiful and he is such a God, then so be it. Just because I chose not to drink the Kool Aid and I have my own mind, don’t abhor what I said – get real.

  • justme

    Michelle is not ugly… She’s a bit more attractive than Obama…and as far as ‘first couples’ go, them and the Biden’s are just fine.

    As far as the covers, they do seem a bit off. Almost like caricatures, and not photos… Essence can do better…

  • justme

    Also, I may disagree with people, but there is no need to cut them down because they don’t like a public figure. I value my self, my family, and even those online, since I’m in fact closer to them, than public figures….

  • Sydney


    “I only worship my God in Heaven.”

    LOL — everything is funny today to me, for some reason. Good one.

    Just remember, God doesn’t like ugly. 🙂

  • memchee

    I was wonder when the relevant magazines, featuring them would hit the stands.
