This text between Michelle Obama and her mum is the best thing ever!

It’s social media posts like this that make people adore her realness.

In an Instagram post captioned “When your mom doesn’t think you’re a ‘real’ celebrity…,” Michelle shared a text exchange with her mum after her surprise appearance at the Grammy Awards.

“I guess you were a hit at the Grammys,” her mum texted with a smiley emoji.

“I’m sitting here with Valerie, and this text is so typically you,” Michelle responded. “Did you watch it?!”

“I saw it because Gracie called me,” replied her mum.

Followed by some Mum Shade, “Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done.”

Michelle then tried to tell her mum that she had told her she was going to be on the show, but that got shut down real quick too.

“No you did not. I would have remembered that even though I don’t remember much.” replied her Mum.

Michelle replied, “I thought I told you.”

“And I am a real star…by the way…” she said to her mum. And then her mama responded with one glorious, show-stopping word:


Burn! lol

Nothing like a slap back to earth from your mum.

How does your mum keep you humble?

  • I guess it’s hard to see your own child as a star.


  • Don’t really get this. I suppose with text/email some context is lost. The mum keeps her humble? Not sure how? Confusing to me.


  • I like this about her !


  • What a special chat. They both seem lovely and genuine


  • A good reminder that we often forget to tell our Mum things. Lucky I had a witness that was able to verify that I hadn’t been told something important……At the same time Mums sometimes forget to tell us important things too. I’ve needed proof of that a few times too.


  • She seems like a really down to earth lovely person, I really like her
