US First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for an interview that aired 16 March with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about her children and their future outside of the White House.

When asked if she or her children are interested in politics Obama had a short and sweet response: "No."

"No, absolutely not," said Obama. "I just want to help folks. I'm like you. You know?"

Obama said she is most looking forward to being able to roll down her car windows once her life outside of the White House begins.

"Ya know the one thing people don't realise is we can't do little things like open windows. Ya know. I mean I look forward to getting in a car and rolling down the window and just letting the air hit my face. I mean I haven't been in a car with the windows open in about seven years if you can imagine that. So I'm gonna spend that first year just hanging out the window. The wind!" said Obama.

DeGeneres then invited Obama to hit the dance floor and show off their skills to the Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson hit Uptown Funk.
