We're pretty sure Michelle Obama can do anything, but we didn't see this one coming. Partnership for a Healthier America, the nonprofit health initiative led by the first lady, is releasing a hip-hop album: Songs for a Healthier America. Sadly, Michelle Obama won't be doing any freestyling herself, but we're sure that her political clout boosted the album's star power.
The record, which you can preview here, features both major musical talents and somewhat random celebs. Matisyahu and Travis Barker jam together on the song "U R What You Eat." Doug E. Fresh, Ryan Beatty and Jordin Sparks appear on the opening track "Everybody," which features a cameo by Dr. Oz. Knicks player and aspiring rapper Imam Shumpert does a number called "Pass the Rock," which is reportedly about basketball and exercise.
We love the idea of celebrities joining musical forces to inspire healthy kids. And yet it could have easily gone terribly wrong. Here are a few songs that we can all be grateful didn't make it onto Michelle Obama's album.
Britney Spears, "Cheetos Are a Food Group"
The Situation, "Don't Go Outside (Just Spray Tan)"
Justin Timberlake, "Fish Stick in a Box"
Miley Cyrus, "Twerk Yourself Into Shape"
Kanye West, "Hurry Up with my Damn Croissants!" (Oh, wait...)
