Michelle Obama’s mom questions her Grammys appearance in amusing text message exchange

Michelle Obama and Marian Robinson

But despite the rockstar reception appearing alongside Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith, it seems the best-selling author is still simply "daughter" to her mum, Marian Robinson.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama made the crowd go wild during her surprise appearance at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday night, but not everyone was impressed.

Last night, Obama shared screenshots of a text conversation with her mother, in which it was revealed that Robinson doesn't necessarily view her daughter as a celebrity in the same realm as the women she shared the stage with. Obama had received a standing ovation opening Sunday's awards show with Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith.

But her mother texted her two days later, saying: "I guess you were a hit at the Grammys".

"I would have remembered that even though I don't remember much", Robinson told her daughter.

Obama wrote about her modest Chicago upbringing in her memoir, Becoming, which also details how Robinson resisted offers to move into the White House before finally agreeing for the sake of her granddaughters.


Obama texted back, "Did you watch it?". She is one of the most genuine and thoughtful people I know-there's no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music!

'Music shows us that all of it matters, every story, every voice, every note, in every song. 'I was anxious about my grandkids'.

To which her mom responded, "Yeah".
