Obama’s Daughter Kicks It At Music Festival Before His Birthday



Yesterday may have been the President’s 53rd birthday, but apparently, Malia Obama isn’t one for stuffy celebrations. Instead, the teenager chose to hit up Lollapalooza’s closing show on Sunday before her father’s festivities. She also—reportedly—kicked another girl at the event.

The 16-year-old looked festival-friendly in a sunflower print crop top and matching skirt, with her hair swept to one side in a stylish braid. Unfortunately, her bodyguard—dressed in an all-black military-style uniform—didn’t exactly blend in with the crowd (as seen in this TMZ post).

Throughout the day, Twitter was buzzing with concert-goers who’d spotted the President’s daughter dancing to Outkast and enjoying the big finale by Chance the Rapper. Despite the fact that the Prez’s oldest “wasn’t allowed to pose for pictures” (according to the Washington Post) one lucky festival goer got her own selfie with Malia.

As for the kicking, the victim, Bridget Truskey, claims it was a harmless accident:

“I got (accidentally) kicked by Malia Obama today at Lollapalooza. No lie. Malia. Obama. It was awesome. #lollapalooza”

The last time we saw the teen, she was getting down with her mom at the Beyonce and Jay-Z ‘On The Run’ show.

And we don’t mind being kicked by Malia, either, especially if we’re posted up in VIP with her.
