Malia Obama Took A Selfie At Lollapalooza, Did Not Wear A Flower Crown

“Sunflower dress game strong.”

1. Visitors to Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival got a surprise “celebrity” sighting over the weekend when Malia Obama showed up for Sunday’s Chance the Rapper show, flanked by two plainclothes guards and three friends.

3. Festival-goers tweeted excitedly about seeing the tall 15-year-old during the set, with many praising her floral fashion sense.

6. Though she was spotted in a selfie with one attendee, she politely declined a request from another.

I asked Malia Obama for a picture and she said she wasn't allowed to take pictures with people

Malia Obama was walking south down Columbus, pretty as can be with a yellow v neck romper and two friends and some guards #lolla
