A selfie starring First Daughter Malia Obama has surfaced — that fact alone means the Internet is in a tizzy. In the image, Malia wears a T-shirt repping Brooklyn-based rap collective Pro Era. The photo first surfaced on Pro Era’s Twitter last night, complete with a link to buy.
Given Michelle Obama’s public statements about her daughters’ use of social media — she told Barbara Walters last year that she limits Malia’s Facebook access, and did not allow then-12-year-old Sasha to use it the biggest question is where the photo came from. A rep for Joey Bada$$ (a founding member of the collective), told Gawker that “a mutual friend of Malia and pro era member” sent it to Pro Era.

I wonder what mummy will do when she finds out.
