If your mom doesn't keep you humble, who will?
Turns out, Michelle Obama's mother, Marian Shields Robinson, doesn't see her daughter as a "real" celebrity.
After the former First Lady made a surprise appearance at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10), her mom sent her some hilarious text messages that Michelle couldn't help but share on Instagram Tuesday (February 12). "I guess you were a hit at the Grammys," Marian wrote to Michelle along with a smiling tongue out emoji. "I saw it because Gracie called me. Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done."
"I told you I was going to be on it..." Michelle replied, but her mom disagreed, writing, "No you did not. I would have remembered that even though I don't remember much." Michelle then responded with laughing emojis, adding, "I thought I told you. And I am a real star...by the way..." Michelle's mom then responded with a simple, "Yeah." #SAVAGE
To add a cherry on top of an already too funny conversation, Michelle captioned the screenshots: "When your mom doesn't think you're a "real" celebrity...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. #TextsFromMom 😂."
As previously reported, Michelle brought the house down at the 2019 Grammys after making a surprise appearance alongside some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. The Former First Lady shocked viewers and the entire Staples Center when she hit the Grammy stage with Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Grammy host Alicia Keys, to discuss the huge role music has played in their lives.
To introduce the segment, Alicia said, "Music is what we all love, music is what it’s all about. Everybody is out here shining and I’m so proud to bring us together to honor this moment because music is what we cry to, it’s what we march to, it’s what we rock to, it’s what we make love to. It’s our shared global language."
When it was finally Michelle's turn to speak, the Former First Lady was met with so much applause she had to wait for the crowd's cheers to die down before beginning her brief speech. "From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side to the Who Run the World songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story, and I know that’s true for everybody here," she said. "Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys. It allows us to hear one another to invite each other in. Music shows us that all of it matters — every story within every voice, every note within every song, is that right ladies?"
