Let's face it, being the daughter of famous people can be a real drag sometimes. You can't go anywhere without being papped, your parents are constantly worried about your security, and if you're a teenager -- it practically means the only people you ever get to hang out with are other (mostly bratty) famous kids.
There is one exception to the rule though. And that is being the daughter of the Obamas. On Sunday Night, First Daughter Malia Obama was spotted at the final night of Lollapalooza festival, dancing to Lorde and checking out Chance the Rapper's closing set.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the 15-year-old was "flanked by two huge guards, apparently Secret Service agents in plains clothes [sic], who made sure she and her friends-two girls and a boy-had plenty of space to make their exit."
"The crowd on Columbus was light as she walked well after the bulk of the crowd has gone at about 10:15 p.m... She turned right on balbo into a thick crowd and melted right in - no one the wiser that the eldest Obama daughter was in their midst."
Wait. Really? NO ONE noticed? Sorry, Chicago Sun-Times. Turns out most people with a Twitter account (and TMZ) did, in fact, spot the First Daughter and the buff dudes who gave out a super strong Secret Police vibe. (Where are your undercover festival gear, guys?)
While the guards did not blend in particularly well , they didn't seem to stop Malia from having fun either. She was reportedly saying hi to a bunch of excited folks, and despite being told she "wasn't allowed" to pose for pictures, one lucky festival goer even managed to take a selfie with a very happy looking Malia.
