Don’t Worry About Malia Obama; Worry About Your Eyebrows

Do we remember the walking messes that were the Bush Twins, Jenna and Barbara? Them two got into so much mayhem that they were basically Mario and Luigi. There’s pics on pics of them falling over themselves, drunk, as their daddy flushed the country’s economy down the toilet. In comparison, the Obama girls have been angels. Even without comparison, those girls have carried themselves with much more grace than they should even know how at this point in life.

Jenna Lauren Bush Drunk

I needed to start this there because LEST YE FORGET. Them two didn’t even try that hard to act like they had couth so any critiques of the Obama girls needs to be tempered, because what came before them was that. The Bush Twins did not get lambasted like they could have. And y’all ain’t gon come for the edges of my baes, Malia and Sasha. NO YOU WILL NOT.

Malia Obama, First Daughter, First of Her Name, She of House Obama, Daughter to Barack and Michelle, has been in the news lately. First, for a video that was captured on someone’s phone of her dancing and hiking up her skirt at Lollapalooza. People said she should behave better, and I wanted to tell all those people to shut their mouths wide open.

She was at Lollapalooza, a concert where having behavior is super optional. She was dancing and she had on shorts. She exposed nothing. WHAT is the gahtdamb problem??

Also important, the Obama girls have maintained decorum for so long. I’d wanna shake something too if my every move was monitored by Secret Service and I was basically caged up at the White House for 7 long ass years. I do not wanna hear from the “she should know better” crew. She is 18, and her flipping up her skirt (while wearing shorts underneath) is the least of troubles she could get into.

This is my face too, Malia. I’m sick of people too.

My only wish for her in that situation was that she had more rhythm. Folks were talmbout she was caught “twerking.” That’s like me saying I’m a gymnast because I did a cartwheel. That was not a twerk. It was a slight butt shimmy. Bless her heart, though. Even if she was twerking… AND SO? Who gives a shit? Girl, dance dance dance and forget your sorrow.

No sooner than the unnecessary hoopla died down, Malia’s name is back in folks’ mouth because a picture was released. It was from some selfie, traitorous summagoat, and it shows her smoking a blunt. It looks like it was from Lollapalooza too. Now, people are really butthurt and slandering Malia.

I. WANT. PEOPLE. TO. SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP. SO. BAD. Don’t worry about Malia. Worry about your eyebrows!

Fuck You And Eyebrows gif

You mean a teenager is doing things that teenagers do?? You mean she dares to try THE MARIJUANA at the tender age of 18 when some of y’all been toking up since you could cross the street yourself? You mean she smoked weed at a music concert where you often need to be high to have a good time because the music is too damb loud and being drunk is the other alternative? I AM SHOCKED AND APPALLED. But no. I am not. If my daddy was running the free world, I might need to take a hit every now and then too.

Let her live. Let her nuts go. LET HER BE FREE.

Besides the japper jaws who are scolding the First Daughter, the folks I’m mad at in both of these situations are her friends. I think she needs better friends, and Blacker ones. The ONLY thing she needs are better friends.

Because you know what I’d do if my bestie was the First Daughter? Snatch phones outta hands the moment they point it towards her when we’re partying. Our crew would form a tight circle around her when it’s time for shenanigans so we are a wall and all prying eyes can see nothing. They need to teach “How to Squad Up for Your Girl” classes at Sidwell Academy because… NAWL.

For real. When your crew includes the most famous teenager in the country, it is your job to protect her. That comes with the friendship bracelet and that is an oath signed in invisible ink. Because of her high profile, you protect her and ensure that she can still have fun. And that she doesn’t get more punished for the same fun you’re having.

LEMONADE squad

Squad goals for me, you and Malia

You are supposed to have her back AND her front and periphery. All this footage of her being outchea being snapped AND posted? Nah, son. Her crew gotta handle this better. Who is the snitch? They need to be cut out from the friendship circle IMMEJATELY. Because was our girl needs is more loyalty. She needs the kinda girls who know how to get turnt AND move in silence like real Gs in gnome. She needs folks who people talk about like “Don’t mess with Malia. Her friends are crazy.”

Malia seems to be the kind who is chill and not really gonna go against the grain. She seems like such a sweetheart, and grounded. She also seems to be the less turnt Obama sis. To be honest, I’m just waiting on Natasha (Sasha) Obama’s revelry and carefree Black girl-ness. I’ll be here cheering it on.

After this gap year, Malia will be at Harvard. College is a time for true fuckshit, so if folks are mad at these pics now, imagine how mad they’ll be at Undergrad Malia. This is why it is super important that she gets more discerning now about who she surrounds herself with. Who is trustworthy? The last thing she needs are saboteurs and thirst buckets who will rush and post drunk selfies on Instagram and Snapchat. Ain’t gon be no Periscoping our girl after 9pm.

Folks gotta be ready to destroy the phones of those who don’t wanna cooperate with these rules.

Phone break gif

We gotta find Malia better friends. Because Black girls and women are scrutinized deeper than others, and we are held to such high standards while being treated like low lifes. We gotta find her SQUAD that is about that life on her behalf. These white girls she’s kicking it with don’t know that she can’t be out here like they can and get away with it like they can. She’s out here being a victim of Becky with the Smartphone. Look at life. She needs more sisthrens around her.

Who shall they be? Where will be find them? Do we need to pray to manifest them in her life? Because like the Nigerian prayer warrior I aspire to be, I am ready at all times.

Dear God, please send angels of advancement to Malia Obama on today. Please show her the snakes that are lying in her grass. Cut the disloyal weeds from Sister Obama’s surroundings and replace them with flowers of devotion. Please break the phones of those who try to get her in trouble, and cover her with your cloth of sanctuary. May the enemies not prosper to squelch this girl’s glory and MAY SHE BE ABLE TO TURN UP IN PEACE.

In Jesus mighty, prosperous and omnipotent name, AMEN.

Eh heh! Enjoy your life, Malia boo. We gotchu.

    Next: her mama will have her edges soon enough. I don’t understand why folks think shit is gonna be okay at her house. We should put a special prayer in to cover her from her mama’s wrath.

    In conclusion: I cosign on the fuck you and eyebrows! Your prayer is everrathang! Because it is needed! I’m ready to fight people that mess with Luvvie from 1,000 miles away! These friends of hers ain’t loyal.

    She needs friends that will guard her heart, ass and cell phone number. Let thy friendships be infused with melanin and malarkey, coyness and incognegros, shenaningans and short shorts. Amen!

    Malia does have black friends. You wouldn’t know this because they do a great job of keeping her protected. I’ve seen pics of her partying with the sons and daughters (mostly mature college students) of the well connected and monied “black bourgeoisie” at a few spots in D.C., GWU and of course on the Vineyard. There are also pics of her and her black friends in the studio with Lil Wayne and more. You’ve never seen any of these pics because this close group of friends understand the consequences their high profile friend would have to face if the pics were sold. (plus, they don’t need the money) The thing is, if you knew the names of her black friends, you could go to their Instagram and see the pics.

    Let the girl live. She (and Sasha) have been the model First Daughters, they’re entitled to cut loose. And no doubt Malia will learn from the experience.

    The Bush twins were in college when their dad came into office. I was in college in Texas at the same time and heard from people who knew one of them that she was definitely a hard-partying sorority girl.

    Compare that to the Obama girls, who were much younger when their father went into office. They are also the first children of a President to live in the White House during the time of smartphones and social media.

    In the past, the media tried not to write too much about the presidential children…as most agreed they should be able to lead a private life (aka Chelsea Clinton).

    Unfortunately, thanks to smartphones and social media…this type of privacy is now gone. I feel for the girls, but the interest in them will wane (somewhat) once the President is out of office– I’d imagine they’ll have more privacy in college. In this day and age- someone is always watching, whether or not your friends have your back.

    I admit I’m a little worried over the situation, for precisely the reasons you stated Luvvie. She will face extra scrutiny and judgement than the Bush girls did back in their heyday because she’s black, and this is the everybody-and-they-mama-got-an-opinion social media age.

    Most teens have their rebellious moments (I never tried that shiz, cuz my mom beat my ass for coming home late from the LIBRARY, and then I lived with an aunt who was always threatening to put me out, and I didn’t wanna be homeless, so…), but they don’t have to live under the microscope of public opinion. I hope Malia does weed (hehe) out her circle of friends, and learns to turn up responsibly. I know Michelle has already tied fire to that ass, and Mama Robinson gave her the “I’m so disappointed” look and didn’t give her ice cream after the storm. Malia will be ok as long as she’s smart about the company she keeps.

    Sasha now… She’s the one I always pegged as the one who would cause the ruckus. You see that girl’s permanent stank face? Lol! She looks like the type we call ‘dry yie (eye)’ in Jamaica, meaning a true baddie and what about it? Lol!

    (SN) Did we all forget that her daddeh probably spent the majority of his undergrad years floating thru the clouds? Have we forgotten the pics of him blowing smoke that I find sexy as hell, despite the fact that I can’t even be in the same room as a smoker? Lissen, had I encountered Young Barry, I’d have been so gone. I’d have been lighting that man’s cigarettes and joints, playing puff puff pass and probably flunking out of school. And I’m a nerd.

    Chances are good that she will get her Black friends in college. I grew up in the DC area (Alexandria, VA) and had mostly white friends in high school because I was in class with them (brainiac that I was). All that changed when I went to the College of William and Mary. I went from seeing Black people every day in my community to white isolation in college and it hurt. There were sooooooo few Black people there I went out of my way to find them…..Black Student Organization, NAACP, Black parties….those were the things I needed. We just need to pray her through her gap year and she should settle down with some Black friends….I hope.

    My 5’10” redheaded hippie chick Valkyrie Mama, would be a good addition if it weren’t logistically impossible. She’s been managing her squad for six years; college senior now. She carries everything anyone might need on her Purse of Requirements: bandaid, tampons, mouthwash, tissues, wet wipes, safety pins, ibuprofen, water, Emergen-C vitamin water powder, peppermint (stomach soother), scissors, mending kit, extra shades, hair elastics, pick (curly hair), Bert’s Bees lip gloss in Coffee, and a hundred other goodies. She’s tall enough to circle up protectively even for another tall girl like Malia, afraid of nothing, and intimidating as hell. She drinks only a little bit and doesn’t toke; she likes to make sure her little chicks are gathered behind her skirts (she has some petite friends). She sizes up the guys who come round, ejects the douches, keeps an eye on trial runs of the others. She dances adorkable white girl style that instantly makes everyone else look cooler in comparison. She doesn’t care; she has fun taking care of everybody else. Oh, and she’s beautiful.

    This sounds like I’m assigning Malia a Mary Poppins. But Leah is really a ball of fierce safe fun. She’s politically savvy, feminist, determined to break the back of racism in her generation.

YaaassSiiiirr! I made sure my daughter saw my SistaCircle and knew what we were about; & it helped her create her own, helped her be selective abt who she let get close….who a sista could trust with her “business” …and it showed her how/what/when/why real SistaLoves looks like.
    Malia prolly got calls from all her play-Aunties…Oprah, Gail, Beyonce’ & Hilary; talmbout “Girl, where was yo Sistas?!? (yes, i mentioned Hilary on purpose…cause we know Bill was our “trial-run” on a Black President., which makes Hilary one of the play-Aunties) “Chile, why you out w/o yo real back-up, without that SistaCircle!!”

    I actually spent a few concerts with Malia and her friends at Lolla this year (no one will believe that but whatever) and she does have black friends, and very nice and cool ones at that. That was my only problem with this article- that the author assumed that she doesn’t have black friends because the videos and photos or whatever that got out (I haven’t looked at them because I was there) had white people in them. AND her black and white friends alike were yelling at and exposing people who were trying to sneak photos/videos of her the entire weekend, even people who she wasn’t friends with (me) were yelling at those people.

    Let Malia live without scrutiny about who her friends are, let’s not make assumptions.

    Maybe she should have made a video naked while straddling a Wrecking Ball & stuck her behind into a married man crotch on national TV. We’d have more respect for her and want to her to be a mentor for other young people.

    “Because Black girls and women are scrutinized deeper than others, and we are held to such high standards while being treated like low lifes.”
