Michelle Obama Promotes Healthy Eating with ‘Turnip, for What?’

michelle-obama-turnipFirst lady Michelle Obama channeled rapper Lil Jon in her latest push to promote healthy eating, taking his hit Turn Down for What and putting a green spin on it.

In a Vine posted by the White House on Tuesday night, the first lady asks, “turnip, for what?”

The Vine was a response to Vine user Alphacat, who — while doing a pretty good impression of the first lady’s husband, President Barack Obama — asked how many calories Michelle Obama burned “every time you ‘turn up’?”

These two aren’t the only political figures to channel the Lil Jon song while sending a message. The rapper put a new twist on the song for the Rock the Vote campaign, recording a video for “Turnout For What,” featuring other celebrities like Lena Dunham, Fred Armisen and Natasha Lyonne.
