President Obama on Kanye West: 'He Is a Jackass, But He's Talented'
Back in 2009, after the infamous Kanye/Taylor Swift MTV Video Music Awards incident, our Commander-in-chief referred to the "Theraflu" rapper as a "jackass," and a few years later, his view still hasn't changed. In the latest issue of The Atlantic, the president mentions that he actually prefers Jay-Z's music over Kanye's but does mention: "I like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."
However, Obama still holds on to his belief that the 34-year-old rap superstar is a "jackass."
The Atlantic reporter recalled that "when the interview reminded Obama of his comment from 2009, he replied, 'He is a jackass. . . But he's talented.'"
We wonder what Kanye's pal Kim Kardashian would think about these comments?
