The US First Lady was asked in a new interview with People if there was any celebrity or world figure with whom she'd switch lives.
"Gosh, if I had some gift, I'd be Beyoncé. I'd be some great singer," Obama answered.
She added: "The power of music, being able to play an instrument… It looks like musicians just have the most fun."
Obama's comments come just over a month after Beyoncé published a handwritten note praising the First Lady.
Beyoncé described Obama as a role model for her daughter Blue Ivy Carter and said the politician's wife is "the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman".
Obama will kick off a press tour next week to promote her new book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America.
All proceeds from the book benefit the National Park Foundation.
