Malia Obama went with a bunch of friends on Friday to catch the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. And when the band The Killers performed, Malia went nuts, dancing around before flinging herself to the ground and pounding the earth with her fists.
TMZ posted a video showing her and a girlfriend dancing to the tunes. Of course, the video pretty much showed a 19 year old acting like a teenager — even if that teenager is the daughter of a president with her own Secret Service detail.
But two more reports followed on Tuesday that revealed new details about the wild night, including this one by TMZ headlined “KINDA OUT OF IT — Carted Out of Lollapalooza”:
Malia Obama rocked out so hard at Lollapalooza she needed a lift at the end of the night — as in a golf cart to take her out of the show.
TMZ’s obtained new video showing Malia looking kinda dazed Friday night as she was carted out of the music fest in Chicago. It’s unclear how much time elapsed between this video and the other footage we got of her rocking out to The Killers that night — but she’s wearing the same clothes.
As we reported … Barack’s oldest daughter headbanged and writhed on the ground with friends — basically, doing what 19-year-olds at Lollapalooza typically do.
The UK’s Daily Mail had a similar story, this one headlined: “New video shows a limp Malia Obama dozing off as she’s driven from Lollapalooza in a golf cart.”
New video has emerged showing Malia Obama dozing off after a ruckus night at Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival on Friday.
The video shows the former first daughter being driven from the festival site in a golf cart like a true VIP.
Sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, 19-year-old Malia appears to have already fallen asleep. But the movements of the car causes her head to jolt up a few times, though she doesn’t seem to open her eyes.
A Secret Service officer in a yellow jacket clears the way for the golf cart, while another man drives the vehicle.
Two female friends chat while sitting in the back seat. …
Social media users have been been quick to defend the teenager for letting loose and having fun with her friends.
Twitter user @Blvck_Picvsso wrote: ‘Malia Obama is doing what you supposed to do at an concert: HAVE FUN.’
Another said: ‘This Malia Obama thing is being taken way out of context. She’s dancing to The KILLERS! I would still be rolling on that floor…’
Some called for people to stop secretly filming the former first daughter in order to profit off of her.
@JassyBravo tweeted: ‘Malia Obama having a great time like normal people but the problem is she will always be recorded but who is her friends tho ?’
Malia also reportedly lost her iPhone — and caused a bit of a scene when she went to an Apple store to get a new one.
