Sasha Obama has been pretty busy since her days in the White House. Aside from showing her father cool music for his annual music playlists, she also started college in Michigan in 2019. Last August, she moved to L.A. after transferring to USC, and now, she reportedly has a boyfriend. The Daily Mail claims she’s dating Clifton Powell Jr., a commercial director and the son of actor Clifton Powell.

Sasha and Clifton were spotted together Thursday, two days after her mother’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she made a reference to her daughters’ boyfriends. (Malia, who’s now 23, has been romantically linked to Rory Farquharson, a British man she went to Harvard with, since 2017.) “They loved the Jonas Brothers,” Michelle said. “Now they’re bringing grown men home. Before it was just pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives and all that stuff.” Sure looks like it!

Anyway, Sasha, if you’re listening, please send us your Jonas Brothers playlist.
