Just like a normal teenager.

President Barack Obama can’t even go out for a burger without a hundred aides, Secret Service, and journalists following his every move. But that doesn’t mean his daughters can’t hit up a show once in a while. Such was the case on Sunday night, when 15-year-old Malia Obama attended the final night of Lollapalooza 2014 and took in Chance the Rapper’s closing performance.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the first First Daughter, who attended the music festival with three friends, “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.”

An investigation of tweets by the Daily Dot found that Malia appeared to be screening her selfie encounters.

I asked Malia Obama for a picture and she said she wasn’t allowed to take pictures with people 😩😩

The eldest Obama daughter was also spotted dancing at Lorde’s Friday night Lollapalooza performance, where she took selfies in a crowd that looked far too packed for the Secret Service’s comfort.
