She’s known as the President’s daughter, but over the weekend Malia Obama was spotted in Chicago playing a much more relatable role — that of a regular teenager.
The eldest child of Barack and Michelle Obama partied it up at Lollapalooza Music Festival, where she seemed to enjoy rapper Mac Miller’s set from the side of the stage in particular.
The 18-year-old was caught on camera twerking and revealing some seriously short-shorts, as she flipped up the shirt she had tied around her waist. Get it, girl!
While we have to admit that we’ve admired Malia for quite some time now, it’s safe to say that this latest stunt has officially sold us on her.
Here are six reasons why Malia Obama is now our spirit animal:
1. She dances like nobody’s watching.
If you couldn’t tell by the above video, Malia dances like nobody’s watching, even when they all are. #GoGirl
2. She plays by her own rules.
While taking a year off between high school and college is something many kids dream of doing, not many actually do because it isn’t “traditional.” However, Malia could care less and is doing it anyway. YAAAAS.
3. She stays grounded.
Just because she’s the President’s daughter, doesn’t mean that she doesn’t act like an average teenager. We give major props to Malia for skipping the 2016 Democratic National Convention and hitting up Lollapalooza Music Festival instead. Say what you want, but we think she’s got her priorities in order. #GirlsJustWantToHaveFun
4. She’s got beauty and brains.
Not only does this 18-year-old, 6’1 beauty know how to party, but she’s also smart AF. You know how we said that she’s taking a year off before starting college? Well, when she starts her freshman year in 2017, guess where it’ll be? At HARVARD. #Goals
5. …And we can’t forget, a sense of humor.
Nope, we are still not over the time she epically photobombed her kissing parents at the inauguration parade in 2013. This girl has got jokes!
6. Basically, she’s got it all going on.
Between her beauty, brains, on-point style, hilarious sense of humor, and her top-notch twerking skills, what’s not to love about this girl? We can’t think of a single thing.
Only 17 more years ’til she’s 35… #Malia2033, anyone?
