Former President Obama’s daughters were spotted at Drake’s after-party at the Bird Streets Club in Los Angeles. The two attended his and 21 Savage’s “It’s All a Blur Tour.” Sasha Obama, 22, rocked a Black cropped corset top and cargo pants, while Malia, 25, wore a sheer top and high-waisted flared trousers. The sisters reportedly left Bird Streets Club around 4 a.m.
Their love for Drizzy was a shared sentiment in their household. The 44th President was known to listen to the rapper himself. In addition, he included Drake’s name on his “Obama Annual Summer Playlist” for his collaboration on “Who Told You.” The rapper has stated in the past that he wouldn’t mind playing Obama in a biopic, and Obama didn’t oppose it.
“You know what, Drake has—more importantly, I think—my household’s stamp of approval,” he said in his 360 With Speedy Morman. “I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”
According to Complex, they weren’t the only big names that attended the Canadian rapper’s afterparty. Other attendees included Saweetie, Anderson Paak, and the rapper’s father, Dennis Graham.
The Criticism of Malia and Sasha Obama
Both women have been under the media spotlight since their father assumed the presidency. Being a young woman growing up in the White House brought them unique challenges and advantages. Still, one downside was the scrutiny and sometimes unfair criticism they received for living their lives as typical young adults. Their every move, whether going to a concert, partying with friends, or even choosing a college, often became reason for media commentary and, occasionally, undeserved criticism.
Many young adults navigate the challenging period of self-discovery, personal growth, and youthful indiscretions. And the Obama daughters are no different. What set them apart was the magnifying glass under which they lived. The oldest daughter, for instance, was photographed at music festivals and parties. Yet, where other young people might receive a pass behavior, she faced harsh headlines and disparaging comments. Similarly, the younger sister, though often more private, wasn’t immune from judgmental eyes and whispers when she chose social activities typical for someone her age.
