      Michelle Obama's bangs: 'This is my mid-life crisis'

      PALM CITY, Fla. (AP) - Michelle Obama jokingly says a mid-life crisis is what inspired her new haircut with bangs.

      The first lady revealed the new hairstyle last month on her 49th birthday, which came a few days before the festivities for President Barack Obama's second inauguration.

      Mrs. Obama was asked about the new haircut during an interview with talk-show host Rachael Ray.

      Said Mrs. Obama: "This is my mid-life crisis." She added that she cut her bangs because she can't get a sports car and won't be allowed to bungee jump.

      The interview was conducted via Skype and is scheduled to air on Wednesday. The Rachel Ray show released excerpts on Monday.
