In a recent interview, the President was asked whether he prefers Jay-Z or Kanye West. Without hesitation, Obama answered, “Jay-Z”, before adding, “although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented." When the interviewer reminded Obama of his 2009 comment, the president replied, "He is a jackass ... but he's talented."
It seems, the Obama family is not too fond of Kim Kardashian either. A source close to the family has been quoted saying, "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn’t like that as much." First Lady, Michelle Obama had spoken about her daughter's TV habits with a magazine, adding that the first father sees the adventures of the Kardashian sisters franchise as a great example of what not to do in life.
Kayne West, who probably is busy with his lady love Kim Kardashian, hasn't responded to Obama's comments yet.
