Yara Shahidi sat down with Seventeen to discuss her whirlwind career over the last few years. In between beauty tips about her flawless skin, Yara revealed that she’s gotten her college acceptance letters–all of them.

First Lady Michelle Obama turned 53 years young on Tuesday and the world sent out kind birthday wishes. Adele kicked things off from across the pond to send her love, referring to Michelle as “my Lady.” Zendaya, Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande also chimed in with posts and retweets about the “queen that is our FLOTUS.” It goes almost without saying that President Barack Obama stole the show, and our hearts, with his own special message for his wife.
See some of the birthday wishes below.

Lauren Jauegui is one of several celebs who’ve been having a hard time processing Tuesday’s election results. The Fifth Harmony singer was a devoted Hillary Clinton supporter even after her Jill Stein snafu. Now, rather than get hung up on the present, Lauren is ready to look to the future. On Thursday, she tweeted out who she’s already interested in voting for in the next presidential election.
Lauren made it clear that her 2020 choice right now is Michelle Obama. Lauren didn’t seem to want to give the current First Lady a choice in the matter, saying to Michelle, “You better be running.”
Check out Lauren’s tweet below.

Zendaya received the ultimate shoutout and she could barely maintain her composure, or her footing. Michelle Obama joined Youtube star Lilly Singh in a recent interview and gave Zendaya quite a few compliments. The First Lady was asked to say whatever comes to mind before being shown a photograph of Zendaya. “Beautiful, talented, kind giving, caring, role model,” Michelle declared. She eventually dubbed Zendaya as “goals.”
Zendaya shared the video clip to her Instagram account and she just wants to make her First Lady proud. “As I type this from the floor, as I have just passed out,” she writes in the caption.
