Michelle Obama posted a brilliant exchange with her mom on Instagram

During her Becoming tour stop in Phoenix on Tuesday, the former first lady shared a text conversation with her mum about her surprise appearance at Sunday's Grammy Awards, which she opened with a speech about the power of music.

Of course, Michelle was one of the biggest stars of the night, taking the stage during Alicia Keys' opening monologue alongside Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Jada Pinkett Smith to talk about the impact music has made on her life.

Michelle ignored her mother's comment, noting that she had told her she would be at the ceremony, to which Marian replied: 'No you did not.

Although Robinson maintained she wasn't aware about Michelle going to the show, many found the former First Lady's situation very relatable.

"I guess you were a hit at the Grammys", Marian said in her text. And when Obama later told her mother that "I Am A real star... by the way...", Robinson issued a single-word response: "Yeah". She thought she told her mom about the Grammys appearance, adding: "And I am a real the way." in regards to her mom's question about the celebrities she met.

Her mother replied, "Yeah".

In a few hours the post has had nearly two million likes and over 30,000 comments.

Robinson lived at the White House with her daughter during her son-in-law's tenure as president.

Obama explained that her mother ended up being the most "beloved figure" in the household during her family's time in the White House, and had a "stream" of staff members regularly paying her visits, often in order to ask the matriarch for some sage advice. And then they'd leave'.

What do you think of the exchange?
