While her mom and dad were invoking her in powerful speeches at the Democratic National Convention last week, first daughter Malia Obama was busy having a very normal, crop-topped time at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago.

As the Chicago Tribune announced in a giddy headline on Saturday, 18-year-old Obama was "spotted" in the crowd on Thursday, the final night of the DNC, dancing in the crowd at a Cashmere Cat performance. And Obama wasn't just quietly taking in the scene, nor was she flanked by an obvious security detail. No, the eldest Obama daughter, who was also reportedly seen at Mac Miller's show on Friday, was really getting down with the crowd.

This isn't even Obama's first Lollapalooza. According to the Tribune, the Chicago native also went in 2014.
