Michelle Obama's Bangs Are A Total Shock To The System (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Today was a big day for Michelle Obama: The first lady celebrated her birthday (49!) and debuted her brand-new Twitter account, @FLOTUS.

She also might have gotten a dramatic new haircut. This afternoon, @FLOTUS tweeted out the following message:

The First Lady just met with Inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall ahead of #MLKDay of Service: http://www.2013pic.org/service

Embedded in the tweet was a photo of Michelle with bangs.

We're still a little stunned and have so many questions, including: are these for real like Kate Middleton's or is this a clip-in situation, à la Kim Kardashian? What if it's a wig and she's just punking us all?

We've yet to get to the bottom of it, but we do know this: this will make her Inauguration Day photos way more memorable.

UPDATE: There's video, too! See the bangs in action, below.
