Michelle Obama Mid-Life Crisis Is The Reason For Her Bangs! (PHOTOS)

We all kinda freaked out when Michelle Obama cut her bangs, debating why she did it, how they looked and if she'd totally regret it. President Obama loved them ("I love her bangs... She looks good. She always looks good") while Karl Lagerfeld hated them ("Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea..."), so they up and got their own Twitter account to defend themselves.

Now the first lady has finally gone on the record (perhaps to shut us all up) about her new hair. In a new interview with Rachael Ray, airing on Wednesday, Michelle told the TV host:

“This is my mid-life crisis, the bangs. I couldn't get a sports car. They won't let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”

Aw, Michelle, you didn't have to do that. You're the youngest 49-year-old we've ever seen! No need for a crisis at all.

Then again, if you're going to have an age-related freakout, chic bangs are totally the way to go. Middle-aged ladies, take note.

Watch the rest of Rachel Ray's chat with FLOTUS on Wednesday, February 20, and read everything you've ever wanted to know about Michelle Obama's bangs here.

In case you forgot what the bangs look like...
