    Michelle Obama Being "Humbled" By Her Mum Is A Gentle Reminder That No Matter How Famous You Think You Are, Parents Think Otherwise

    "Did you meet any of the real stars?"

    So we're all familiar with Michelle Obama right? Chicago-born former lawyer, author, mother-of-two, style icon.

    Oh and the Former First Lady of the United States.

    It's fair to say that she's someone that could be considered, a celebrity – a star.

    That is, to everybody except her mother, Marian Robinson.

    Obama made a surprise appearance at this Sunday’s Grammy Award show alongside Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jennifer Lopez and host Alicia Keys.

    Her mother caught the show and sent the most mum-like text you can imagine, and it's that humble reminder that no matter how famous you are, you are just plain old you to the ones that love you.

    Catch the shade. She asked: "Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done[?]"

    "REAL stars".

    The Becoming author let her mum know: "I am a real the way..."

    To which her mother responded, "Yeah."

    If your parents don't keep you humble, who else will?

    You know the tone on the 'yeah' that just gathers you all the way together.

    All the time!

    People can really relate.

    Would a real star have a sandwich named after them? exactly.

    Michelle Obama everybody. A real celebrity.
