Malia Obama sings in music video
FORMER first daughter Malia Obama has appeared in a music video with the New Dakotas in which she sings and plays harmonica.
Obama, 19, dressed in a beanie and oversized jumper, head bangs along with the tune Walking On Air.
The New Dakotas all go to Harvard. It isn’t known if Obama, who also attends Harvard, is friends with the band.
Obama has spent her time since finishing high school in the entertainment industry.
She has had internships on the set of the Halle Berry television series Extant and Lena Dunham’s series Girls.
She also worked at the now defunct Weinstein Company.
She was just 10 years of age when her father became the president of the United States of America.
Malia Obama took a gap year after graduating high school in 2016, in what the Obamas said was an effort to start college without the distraction of her father in the White House.
The informal society of presidential children has historically been protective of its youngest members, without regard for political party.
Late last year, Ivanka Trump condemned tabloid coverage of President Barack Obama’s eldest daughter, saying the college student deserves privacy and ought to be “OFF limits.”
A video posted to Instagram appeared to show Malia blowing smoke rings in a bathroom.
The caption on the video identified the former first daughter by name and claimed she was “firing off them O’s like a boss”.
US President Donald Trump’s daughter tweeted: “Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.”
Ms Trump was joined by another former first daughter, Chelsea Clinton, who tweeted: “Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.”
Malia is following in the footsteps of her parents, who both graduated from Harvard Law School.
After leaving the White House, the Obamas moved into a home Washington’s Kalorama neighbourhood.
Sasha Obama is still finish ing her studies at Sidwell Friends School, from which Malia Obama graduated in 2016.
Sasha will finish and graduate from Sidwell in 2019.
