malia pro era

*Is it really Malia Obama? If so, how did it end up on the Internet?

These are questions that have been buzzing around since the Brooklyn rap collective Pro Era shared the above photo of a teen it claims is President Barack Obama’s 16-year-old daughter rocking a t-shirt bearing the group’s name.

The photo shows the high school student — or someone who looks very much like her — mouth agape, looking directly into the camera as she arranges her long ponytail.

A rep for Pro Era member Joey Bada$$ told Gawker that the photo was received through “a mutual friend of Malia and the pro era member.”

The White House — which has guarded the Obama girls’ privacy — so far has not commented on the pic, but are reportedly looking into how the image made it onto the Internet, according to JustJared.
