One such moment of candor occurred this weekend, as the former first lady took the stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the latest stop on the arena-filling tour for her memoir Becoming.
Michelle Obama, the former USA first lady, has said she still feels imposter syndrome despite her eight years as America's most powerful woman and her success as an advocate for women and girls across the world.
Speaking today, she said: 'Meeting the girls here and the girls at Mulberry reminded me how much courage and talent and hope there is'.
"That's a lie. And it's not always enough to lean in, because that s**t doesn't work all the time", she added.
Michelle Obama inadvertently swore at a public event in NY and people seem to be losing their minds in unbridled joy over the outburst.
"It is impossible to forget that she, like numerous female friends she quotes, is a wealthy, white, married woman with a 'vast support system, '" wrote critic Connie Schultz for the Washington Post.
Michelle Obama has spent the last few weeks on her book tour for her memoir, Becoming, engaging in a series of "intimate conversations" with notable public figures.

Predictably, the crowd lost it at the former First Lady's use of the s-bomb.
In the book, she detailed the profound impact her visit to the comprehensive secondary school had on her nine years ago, at a time when it had 900 refugee pupils, with 55 languages spoken between them. "And so, overall, we are not seeing a major increase in female leadership in any industry or in any government in the world, and I think that's a shame".
Sandberg addressed the criticism that her book left out underprivileged women back in 2016, telling CBS that, "I did not really get how hard it is to succeed at work when you are overwhelmed at home".
"Marriage still ain't equal, y'all", Mrs. Obama told some 19,000 audience members on Saturday.
But some people took offense to Obama's unintentional cursing, calling her "classless". I love my husband, and we have a great marriage, and we've had a great marriage, but marriage is hard work.
