Michelle Obama’s mum cool on Grammy act

By AAP Newswire

It appears Michelle Obama has received a reality check from her mum following her appearance at the Grammys.

The former first lady took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a text exchange with mother Marian Robinson.

Obama had received a standing ovation opening Sunday's awards show with Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Robinson wrote: "I guess you were a hit at the Grammys".

Obama asked if her mother had watched.

Mum replied she saw it, and then asked if her daughter had met "any of the real stars".

Mother and daughter then quibbled over whether Obama had told her she would be on.

Obama ended the exchange by writing "And I AM A real star...by the way..."

Her mother replied, "Yeah."
