First daughter Malia Obama attended Lollapalooza in Chicago over the weekend.

The White House wouldn’t confirm Monday that the president’s older daughter attended the music festival on Sunday, but a tweeted photo and witnesses indicate the 16-year-old was there for Chance the Rapper’s show.

Among those tweeting about Malia Obama was Meghan Lomas, 17, from Valparaiso, Ind. She told the Tribune she stood one person away from the first daughter in the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd in Grant Park.

Lomas said she and her two friends knew something was up when they spotted the security detail and their ear pieces. “All these Secret Service guys were around,” she said. “My friend turned to me and said, ‘I’ve seen the movie, and I know what they are.’ ”

    I must have been a lousy parent. I wouldn’t have allow my kids to attend this kind of a festival until the were at least collage age. Actually they had graduated before ever attending Lollapoloza concerts.

      YEP, they are there to PROTECT. I’m sure they would not stop her from doing anything she wanted for fear of being fired by daddy if she complained. Not someone trying to attack, maim or kidnap…that’s where they would step in.
