The President, who has referred to Kanye as a “jackass” in the past, and apparently “doesn’t like” his children watching Kim’s hit reality show, revisits the topic in a brand new interview with The Atlantic – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
When asked by David Samuels whether he prefers Kanye or Jay-Z, Obama responded with a smile, ‘as if the answer should be obvious…’ “Jay-Z.”
“Although I like Kanye,” Obama continued. “He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”
“Even though you called him a jackass?,” Samuels reminded him.
“He is a jackass,” Obama responded. “But he’s talented.”
“Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians – when they watch that stuff – he doesn’t like that as much,” Mrs. Obama revealed, “but I sort of feel like if we’re talking about it, and I’m more concerned with how they take it in – what did you learn when you watched that? And if they’re learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I’m like, okay.”
Barack first called out Kanye back in 2009, after the hip-hop star infamously hopped on the stage of the MTV Video Music Awards and interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech.
