Michelle Obama’s mom says she’s not a ‘real’ star in sassy text

Mother-daughter relationships aren’t any easier when you’re famous.

Michelle Obama’s mother Marian Robinson doesn’t consider her daughter to be a “real” celebrity according to a hilarious text exchange the former first lady posted to Instagram Wednesday.

Obama got up on stage alongside Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez to open the 2019 Grammys on Sunday night.

She was greeted by a standing ovation before speaking about music’s impact on her life.

“Alright, y’all,” she said with a laugh. “Alright, we have a show to do.”

After her surprise appearance, Michelle received the funny text from her mom.

“I guess you were a hit at the Grammys,” Robinson wrote.

When her daughter asked her if she watched it, she responded, “I saw it because Gracie called me. Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done?”

Michelle wrote about her relationship with her mother in her memoir, “Becoming,” which also notes how Robinson initially resisted multiple offers to move into the White House before finally relenting for the sake of her granddaughters. Robinson lived with the Obamas during their residency in the White House but kept a tight grip on her independence and anonymity.

And if Robinson’s classic mom-shade is any indicator she never got overawed by the situation.

Leave it to moms to keep it real, no matter how famous their children get.
