Michelle Obama didn’t ask much of her daughter before she ventured to Harvard University last fall. She just didn’t want her to end up on Page Six.

At the Klick Health’s Muse event this week, the former FLOTUS shared the advice she gave to Malia Obama before the 19-year-old embarked on her collegiate journey.

“Don’t wind up on Page Six,” Obama told her daughter. “I don’t know if she managed that.”

Malia actually did end up on Page Six and other celebrity tabloid publications several times as her friends seem to struggle with not posting her business on social media.

Obama also once again rejected the idea of running for president. She even tried to convince us there are other people who would make decent candidates.

“There’s some bright young people out there doing amazing things,” she said. “I think it’s a better investment to invest in creating thousands of me’s because we don’t need just one.”

We’re not convinced.
