Taylor Swift talks to Vogue about musicians, fashion designers, and of course, guys.  But who really makes her see stars? Political and charitable advocates Caroline and Ethel Kennedy (JFK's daughter and RFK's widow). 

"The only time in my life I have been starstruck was meeting Caroline and Ethel Kennedy," the singer songwriter tells Vogue. "I got to spend the afternoon with Ethel a couple of weeks ago. She is one of my favorites because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody. You know, eleven kids, all these exotic animals on their property.  I've read a lot about them."

She keeps the compliments coming. "Sometimes you see these people who are just so - God - so affected by all of [their success], where ambition has taken precedence over happiness.  But when I meet people who really embody this serenity of knowing that they have had an amazing life - James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson and Ethel Kennedy...." She smiles her twinkly-eyed smile. "They just seem to be so effervescent."

Check Taylor out on the cover of Vogue's January 2012 issue, which is on news stands now.  And yep, that's her pictured above - sporting a new look with straight hair and all - in a Rodarte blue chiffon dress paired with jeans.

First Lady MIchelle Obama opens up to Gayle King of CBS This Morning  in a White House interview.  Mrs. Obama talks about her relationships with White House staff, the 2012 campaign and, of course, raising her girls. 

She also shares how she handles recent portrayals of her as an "angry black women" by some media outlets.  "I just try to be me," the First Lady tells Gayle. "And my hope is that over time people get to know me, and they get to judge me for me."

You can watch the full interview here. CBS disabled the embed code, so we were unable to post the video to Polichicks.  Aaaargh!  Anyway, a penny for your thoughts in the comments.
