Michelle Obama got a new haircut for her 49th birthday. Why? It was cheaper and safer than the other options.

“This is my midlife crisis, the bangs,” the First Lady joked on The Rachael Ray Show (via People). “I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee-jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”

She's so low-maintenance! And at least she didn't go for the classic male midlife crisis cliché: an affair. We've seen that one a few too many times. Those guys should just cut their hair, too.
