18-year-old Malia Obama was recently spotted at Lollapalooza, a popular music festival that was held at Grant Park in Chicago.

Video footage of Malia dancing to Bryson Tiller’s set went viral and everyone went wild with judgment and personal opinions. Many blogs and other publications had a field day with the footage. You would of thought it was a video of Malia smoking crack or something, going by the reactions to the video.

Being the daughter of the President of the United States, you are unfairly placed on ridiculously higher standards than other 18-year-olds probably would be. When did an 18-year-old girl dancing at a concert become such a shocking occurrence? Since the Obamas entered the White House, they have been the most down-to-earth presidential families this country has ever seen. Whether you agree with the way President Obama has used his terms as President or not, you can’t deny the cool, laidback, charismatic characteristics the entire family has exemplified.

Malia Obama displayed all of her black girl magic during Lollapalooza and America obviously couldn’t take it. It was good to see someone like Malia actually enjoying herself and living life. She’s 18 for goodness sake.

Society stay trying to police the way people choose to people. Malia did nothing wrong or inappropriate, she was simply enjoying the moment, and she obviously likes Bryson Tiller’s music.

Seeing the president’s daughter “turn up” was actually pretty refreshing. Malia and all of her carefree black girl magic deserves a round of applause not ridicule.
