Michelle Obama was powerless to prevent photos of her daughters from going public -- she and the girls were captured in selfies at Beyonce and Jay Z's concert last night.
The First Lady chaperoned Malia and Sasha to packed Soldier Field in Chicago -- and a concertgoer lined up some of the fam in the background of her selfie ... and then pushed it out to the world on Instagram.
As we first told you ... Michelle called a photo agency earlier this month, and got it to take down shots of Malia walking into a restaurant that's a known paparazzi spot.
The Chi town selfie reveals a huge flaw in the White House's desire to keep the girls out of the public spotlight ... unless they're with the President.
Hard to shut down a stadium full of iPhones.

Here ye, here ye ... The Queen hath smiled ... in a photobomb!!!
Queen Elizabeth II was at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in Scotland (think Olympics but smaller) ... when she snuck up on a selfie being taken by 2 female hockey players from Australia.
The selfiers -- Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris -- immediately knew they snapped gold and posted the pic to Instagram with the caption, "Aaaahhh the Queen photo-bombed our selfie @chookieperis3 #royalty #queenie #onceinalifetime @auscomgames"
Afterward, the girls told the media the Queen was not in on the plot -- explaining they had tried to catch her in the background of a selfie ... and when Her Majesty realized what was going on, she hammed it up and flashed some pearly whites for the pic.
The girls say the Queen then approached them to talk sports -- "She asked us a bit about the pitch, how we were going and told us to enjoy our time here. She was lovely. Really, really lovely."

Pro-Humanity or Pro-Hamas?
We Don't Know ... Does She?
7/19/2014 7:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Selena Gomez is either directly or indirectly supporting Hamas in the Middle-East conflict ... at least that's the way a lot of people see it after her plea to "Pray for Gaza."
Selena went where Rihanna dared to go on Instagram late Friday ... when she dipped her toe in the conflict.
Maybe she doesn't realize Hamas has launched an untold number of missiles in an effort to destroy Israel, or maybe she supports it ... we don't know. Maybe she just wants peace for everyone. We just don't know.
Rihanna had a change of heart in 8 minutes. Selena seems way more committed ... committed to what is the question.
ATTEMPTS Cliff Dive

We have found something Justin Bieber is worse at than wearing shirts ... cliff diving.
Bieber tries to do a flip off a rock Thursday in Malibu Creek ... but he doesn't quite stick the landing.
You can't fully see Bieber hit the water, but based on the sound ... and the reactions of the people around him ... it wasn't good.
It's been in the low 80s this week in Malibu, so the wetsuit seemed ... soft.
Justin Bieber & Chris Brown
Probation Turn Up in the Club
7/16/2014 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Renegade pop star Justin Bieber and outlaw R&B star Chris Brown joined forces Tuesday night on the Sunset strip and there were NO injuries ... if you discount the bystanders who had to witness their endless posing with their posses.
Breezy and the Biebs -- who are both on probation now -- were inside Bootsy Bellows nightclub throwing up non gang-related hand signs. Shirtless (as usual) Justin went with the classic westside ... while Chris opted for the tried and true bird.
Chris brought gf Karreuche Tran along for the night ... which ended without any fights, broken glass, eggings, or arrests. Hell, Chris even walked out on his own two feet.

Chris Brown continues to throw out gang language all over the place ... this time dropping Bloods references on Instagram.
The post was quickly deleted, but Brown captioned a mundane photo of his shoes by writing, "It's bool! I stand on my own two feet when life gets brazy."
"Bool" and "brazy" are terms used by the Bloods ... replacing the first letters of certain words with a B is a common practice.
Earlier this month, Chris was throwing up gang signs and shouting out the Bloods during a club appearance after the BET Awards.
Texas Tech Cheerleader
I GOT DEATH THREAT
From 'Real Housewives' Star
7/4/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The woman in crosshairs is Kendall Jones -- a college sophomore who made national headlines after photos emerged showing some of the animals she's killed on safari including lions, elephants and leopards.
A 19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader says she's received DEATH THREATS over her penchant for hunting exotic animals ... and one of the harassers is one of the "Real Housewives of Miami."
Kendall's father Cody tells TMZ Sports ... after her story went public, Kendall immediately began receiving death threats on the phone and online ... including an aggressive message from Joanna Krupa.
Cody tells us Krupa went on Instagram ... writing, "This bitch Kendall Jones killed this beautiful creature so she post a selfie! That lion is an endangered species .. breaks my f***ing [heart] not to mention he had a family .. I wish I can fly to Africa and shoot her ugly ass."
Cody says Kendall interpreted the message as a threat -- though she has NOT gone to cops because, "We're in Texas and we feel safe here."
"It’s not that we aren’t taking these threats seriously -- we just feel that these are baseless, and uneducated threats." We're told despite the backlash, Kendall says she will continue to hunt because she feels it's essential for population control and conservation efforts in certain parts of Africa.
She says none of the animals killed are endangered - and all of her hunting is done legally with permits issued by each African country they hunt in.
She says the exotic hunting trip also promotes economic growth in 3rd world countries.
As for Joanna, she has since taken her Instagram post down. We reached out to her for comment -- so far, nothing back.

Adam Richman's new show on the Travel Channel just got yanked in the wake of his rant over the term "thinspiration" ... the one where he encouraged a hater to commit suicide.

Richman -- who recently lost 70 lbs. -- came under fire for posting an Instagram pic with "#thinspiration.' Online trolls jumped on him for using the term -- claiming it's only associated with people suffering eating disorders.
Adam responded to one critic with ... "Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."
Travel Channel didn't specifically say the suicide taunt was behind the postponement.
Richman apologized this morning, saying ... "I’ve long struggled with my body image and have worked very hard to achieve a healthy weight. I’m incredibly sorry to everyone I’ve hurt.”
NBC also announced it WILL go forward with another Richman show -- "Food Fighters" -- later this month.
