Michelle Obama's mum reminds her she's not a 'real celebrity'

Michelle Obama's mother Marian Robinson doesn't consider her daughter to be a "real" celebrity according to a hilarious text exchange the former first lady posted to Instagram Wednesday.

Obama joined host Alicia Keys on stage at the beginning of Sunday's award show, along with Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and Jada Pinkett Smith.

It doesn't matter how famous, successful or presidential you are - mothers will always find a way to humble you, as Michelle Obama was reminded on Sunday.

"I guess you were a hit at the Grammys", Marian said in her text.

Obama wrote that she thought she had told her about it, and then added a Peak Daughter clapback. "Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done", Marian asks. Especially, when Michelle tried to argue her case by writing, "And I'm a real star...by the way", her mother had nothing to say in reply except an unconvinced "Yeah". However, while she was the star of the show for many, her mother's text messages brought her down to earth.

In a few hours the post has had nearly two million likes and over 30,000 comments.

I would think all Shields needs to know about Obama's celebrity status is that she is BFFs with Beyoncé.

Obama wrote about her modest Chicago upbringing in her memoir, Becoming, which also details how Robinson resisted offers to move into the White House before finally agreeing for the sake of her granddaughters.

Robinson, who lived with the Obamas during their White House years, shares a close relationship with her daughter.

'She had a stream of people.

'When I traveled internationally, grandma was there.
