Michelle Obama Has Hilarious Texts With Her Mom About Grammys

Michelle Obama Has Hilarious Texts With Her Mom About Grammys

While the former FLOTUS scored a standing ovation as she helped open Sunday's show alongside Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez and Alicia Keys, a text she's shared from her mom, Marian Robinson, undoubtedly put her ego in check.

Last night, Obama shared a amusing thread of text messages from her mother, in which the 81-year-old Marian Shields poked fun at her daughter's surprise appearance at the Grammys on Sunday night.

Mrs Obama made a surprise appearance on stage at the awards on February 10, alongside Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez and host Alicia Keys.

"I guess you were a hit at the Grammys", Marian said in her text. "Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done", her mother asked.

Obama told her mom that she was "a real star" but she brushed her off.

Marian Robinson's text kept her daughter in check.

Obama replied, her trailing off familiar to any child who ever tried to have a diplomatic exchange with a parent. Tonight in Phoenix, I shared this text thread from my mom from #Grammys night, and I just had to share it with all of you.


Robinson answers that she saw the ceremony only because someone named "Gracie" called her.

'Music shows us that all of it matters, every story, every voice, every note, in every song.

Obama wrote that she thought she had told her about it, and then added a Peak Daughter clapback.

Robinson, who lived with the Obamas during their White House years, shares a close relationship with her daughter. 'I was anxious about my grandkids'. The butlers, the housekeepers. Grandma's room was like the confessional, ' Michelle recalled. And then they'd leave'. "#TextsFromMom", the former first lady captioned the screenshot.

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

'When I traveled internationally, grandma was there.

What do you think of the exchange?
