Michelle Obama Dances With 2-Year-Old Girl Who Called Her a Queen
Michelle Obama adorably came face-to-face with Parker Curry, a 2-year-old fan who declared her the queen, on Tuesday.
The former first lady took to Twitter to share a cute video of the two enjoying a private dance party to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”
“Parker, I'm so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)!” Obama captioned the clip, which raked in 1.8 million views within five hours. “Keep on dreaming big for yourself ... and maybe one day I'll proudly look up at a portrait of you!”
For those who don’t recall who Curry is, rapper Common was on hand to remind us.
“This is the same little girl who was captured staring up at Michelle Obama’s portrait that went viral,” the musician explained, alongside the photo of Parker admiring Obama’s portrait.
After the image made headlines, Curry told BuzzFeed News' AM to DM that she hoped to meet Obama and tell her “she’s a queen.”
And, clearly, Common agrees.
“Queen Recognizing Queen,” he added in another tweet, featuring a pic of the two engrossed in their encounter. “I love everything about this meeting and photo!”
He also shared an article about the meeting, which he captioned, “Nothing but respect for MY First Lady.”
