Michelle Obama's mum reminds her she's not a 'real celebrity'

Obama got up on stage alongside Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez to open the 2019 Grammys on Sunday night.

Last night, Obama shared a amusing thread of text messages from her mother, in which the 81-year-old Marian Shields poked fun at her daughter's surprise appearance at the Grammys on Sunday night.

Michelle Obama took to Instagram this morning to share the hilarious text exchange that she had with her mother after the Grammys, and it has netizens in splits.

Obama, 55, delighted the audience on Sunday night when she made a surprise appearance at the ceremony in order to speak about female empowerment, while sharing the stage with the likes of Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga.

The real kicker came when Shields asked Obama, "Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run after you were done?"

Obama told her mom that she was "a real star" but she brushed her off.

However, Ms Robinson also displayed her sense of humour when she told her daughter that she wasn't informed of her presence at the Grammys.

"And I am a real the way", Obama wrote. Asked in an interview in November what about Obama made her proudest, Robinson answered, "When I grow up I would like to be like Michelle Obama". Music shows us that all of it matters - every story within every voice, every note within every song.

Robinson lived at the White House with her daughter during her son-in-law's tenure as president.

Obama wrote that she thought she had told her about it, and then added a Peak Daughter clapback. They would all stop by.

Obama laughed - in emoji form - at her mom's joke.
