Malia Obama Acts Casual As Star Admits She's His Crush (Video)

Former first daughter Malia Obama has been spotted heading to work in New York City sporting her favorite shearling jacket. Chic and fashionable, she continues to be a fan favorite and an inspiration for other young people, including "Black Beatles" rapper Swae Lee, who has openly talked about taking her out on a date (video below).

Obama, 18, was seen walking to her internship at the Weinstein Company on March 7 wearing her favorite winter jacket. The shearling Alexander Wang coat was paired with black leggings and a navy blue turtleneck knit sweater that summed up an altogether casual look, Hollywood Life reports. 

She also wore black quilted Dr. Martens boots while carrying her brown leather, patterned backpack, which is with her frequently.

The young woman regularly wears the $798 men's tan Alexander Wang Runway Shearling Zip-Up Hooded Jacket. The zip-up jacket has taped seams and kangaroo pockets and is slightly oversized on Obama.

A few months ago, she paired the jacket with a light-wash, high-waisted mom jeans, a black crop top and tan boots. She was later sighted wearing the same jacket with a little green beanie during a snow day. 

Obama is the reported crush of Rae Sremmurd member Swae Lee who has openly stated he would be keen on dating the former first daughter. According to TMZ, he has worked out a specific plan for impressing her on a first date.

The rapper originally expressed a wish to take her out on a date in December, a fact reiterated at LAX airport in early March 2017. 

At that time, he was leaving his brother Slim Jxmmi's birthday bash in downtown Los Angeles.

Swae Lee is one half of the duo who spawned the hit single "Black Beatles." Celebrities and regular people alike had been participating in the #MannequinChallenge inspired by the song. 

The fact the former first lady did the challenge along with NBA star LeBron James and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers team impressed Lee. 

But Lee quickly mentioned he would have no problem getting to know Obama better. 

"I want Malia," he said, Hip Hop DX reports. "I think we would get along, we are just young minds, creative minds, creative minds. We both be on turnt up scenes and we both love life equally. We might connect. I might unlock a new swag for her." 

Obama is currently taking a gap year before she starts her degree at Harvard University in September.
