Michelle Obama Swore In Front Of Sold-Out Crowd, Setting Internet Ablaze

Speaking during a NY event to promote her new book "Becoming", Obama called out Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean in" method.

Michelle Obama on Monday returned to a London school she had visited as United States first lady encouraging students to "practice sisterhood" as she presented a new memoir of her life. She told the crowd, "That whole 'so you can have it all.' Nope, not at the same time".

"Barack is so incredibly fond of Her Majesty", Ms Obama, who was at the Southbank Centre to promote her memoir, Becoming, said.

"We all have to find the people who believe in us", she said.

Before her comments seemingly blasting Sandberg, Obama talked about the struggles of marriage and admonished young people for rushing into the commitment.

"I love my husband and we have a great marriage and had a great marriage but a marriage is hard work", she emphasized".

Why? Well one reason is that "marriage still ain't equal, y'all", according to Obama.

Obama quickly cut herself off and apologized to the room for getting too comfortable onstage.

"Trying not to fall is a major thing that I think about in public". Facebook has since put out a statement saying that Sandberg "takes full responsibility for any activity that happened on her watch".

"In terms of women in leadership roles, we are not better off", she said, noting that women occupied less than 6 percent of Fortune 500 CEO jobs and their global equivalents, and the number of countries run by women had decreased.

"There's so much opportunity to do good with a platform like that - and I think Meghan can maximise her impact for others, as well as her own happiness, if she's doing something that resonates with her personally". "And so then it's time to go to marriage counseling", she added, to delighted laughter from the audience.

Obama said that marriage should be hard work, given it involves two independent individuals coming together to build a life forever - also, she was blunt about how kids can cause havoc on a relationship.

While the duchess was heaped with praise from royal fans during her recent tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji, things have taken a sudden turn for the worse in the headlines over the past few weeks amid sensational claims the mother-to-be is having problems with Catherine. "They're like, 'What's that?' And I'm like, 'Yep, we're in the real world now, fellas'".
