Fried Twinkies? Kiss-Cam love? Bo's sleeping arrangements?

First Lady Michelle Obama -- wife to President Barack Obama, 51, and mom to Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14 -- recently shared little-known facts about herself exclusively to Us Weekly.

"She is my closest friend," the President has said of his wife of 19 years. "And my most important advisor."

Here, Us uncovers 5 things you don't know about Michelle, 48 -- straight from the First Lady herself!

1. I think one of the most important things anyone can do is vote. Gottavote.com makes it easy to do.

2. Sometimes I let our Portuguese Water Dog, Bo, sleep in our bed when Barack is gone.

3. I skipped the second grade.

4. The best thing about campaigning is meeting amazing and inspiring people. Another perk is getting to try specialties from around the country along the way. I've tried everything from local farmers' market produce in North Carolina to fried Twinkies in Iowa.

5. We love watching sports -- especially when there's a Kiss-Cam involved!
