Today might be President Barack Obama’s birthday, but he’s not the only one getting older. The Eldest Daughter in Chief, Malia Obama, was spotted taking in Chicago music festival Lollapalooza over the weekend and — the big news — she went without Mom and Dad!
That's not to say, of course, that she flew totally solo. This is the 16-year-old daughter of the Leader of the Free World we're talking about, after all. As caught on camera over at TMZ, Ms. Malia had a Secret Service agent by her side as she enjoyed the event with friends.
Other snaps from the festival show Malia (who, by the by, looked completely adorable in a sunflower-print crop top and skirt) hanging with her pals as the stern-looking Secret Serviceman keeps an eye on the perimeter (or whatever it is they do). Despite the security detail, Malia looks totally at ease, smiling and joking around with her buds.
While she still had a chaperone, this is a big step for the teenager, who's had a summer filled with presidential-caliber music. A couple weeks back, she was spotted at the Beyoncé and Jay Z concert alongside little sis Sasha and mom Michelle, whose famous arms looked to be the only guns the famous family needed that night.
First Kids, they grow up so fast.
