Malia Obama, the 16-year-old first daughter, was spotted over the weekend at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Lollapalooza is an annual music festival featuring popular rock and hip-hop bands, dance, and comedy performances. It has also provided a platform for non-profit and political groups.
Malia was seen on Day 1 of the festival taking in music from the artist Lorde.
On the last day, Malia was seen exiting the grounds after fellow Chicago native Chance the Rapper’s closing set, which featured a cameo by R. Kelly.
While Malia was having fun and partying all weekend in Chicago, it looks like the U.S. taxpayer was picking up the tab. According to the Sun-Times she was flanked by two huge guards, apparently Secret Service agents in plains clothes, who made sure she and her friends – two girls and a boy – had plenty of space to make their exit. However, they were to make sure that she didn’t pose for pictures, which she failed to do, as seen in the picture above.
Back in July, Malia received a car for her 16th birthday, even though she isn’t allowed to drive until she’s 17. That created an uproar. This summer, she’s been out in California working on Halle Berry’s TV Show, visiting Stanford University, eating out at fancy LA restaurants. And now she’s in Chicago partying it up. Most 16 year olds are scooping ice cream to earn a few dollars.
