She might have been First Lady of the United States for 8 years and have a best selling book, but to her mother, Michelle Obama just isn't a "real star".

"I guess you were a hit at the Grammys", Marian said in her text. The ex-FLOTUS on Wednesday posted the image of an adorable text exchange between herself and her mom, Marian Robinson.

Obama asked her mom if she watched it and Robinson replied: "I saw it because Gracie called me".

"No you did not", Robinson replied, joking, "I would have remembered that even though I don't remember much".

"To Ms Obama's assertion that she is a real star, she only had an unconvinced 'Yeah" to offer. She thought she told her mom about the Grammys appearance, adding: "And I am a real star.by the way." in regards to her mom's question about the celebrities she met.

Mother-daughter relationships aren't any easier when you're famous.

After a text squabble over whether Michelle had told Marian she would be appearing on the show, she ended with a mic drop moment.

Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance at the Grammys on Sunday, and though she shared the stage with musical legends Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga, and Jada Pinkett Smith, it was the former First Lady who really sent the crowd into meltdown.

Obama laughed - in emoji form - at her mom's joke.

Moms are always keeping us humble!

'I mean, you think about my girls were being driven around in a motorcade of three cars with at least four grown adults with guns in each of those cars.
