Amanda Gorman is spilling some behind-the-scenes details about the 2021 Presidential Inauguration last week!
The 22-year-old poet, who became a huge star after speaking at President Biden‘s Inauguration, appeared for an interview on Ellen where she shared some details viewers didn’t see during the big event.
According to Amanda, former First Lady Michelle Obama was a little upset with former President Barack Obama for breaking COVID, safety protocols.
“I remember Michelle Obama, like, being close,” Amanda recalled. “And she kind of kept yelling at Barack, like, ‘Stop hugging people. Stop getting close to people.’”
Amanda continued, “And then when I was done, she kind of like pushed him out the way and gave me the just the biggest, warmest Michelle Obama hug.”
Amanda also revealed that the Inauguration wasn’t the first time she met Michelle.
“I have met Michelle a few times before,” Amanda shared. “Not Barack. And whenever I meet Michelle I hope that she forgets meeting me, because I just want a do-over. I just want a clean slate. Like, I just want to do it right this time. But she always remembers and she’s always great.”
Also during her interview with Ellen, Amanda shared her desire to run for President one day! Read more here.
