President Barack Obama Gives Kanye West Presidential Advice
"No, you cannot autotune the State of the Union address."

Leave it to Kanye to make Kanye smile.

Kanye West auditioning for anything is like waking up to a unicorn making chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. It’s mythological to the point of where you wonder if you’ve accidentally gargled with absinthe instead of mouth wash.

But behold!—Yeezus became one with mere mortals when he staged an audition for American Idol in San Diego on Saturday, Oct. 10, rapping “Gold Digger” for an enthusiastic Jennifer Lopez.

See what he did there, with the Trina, Jennifer Lopez bit?

Look how happy it made him! Ryan Seacrest didn’t even have to share his robots to coddle a coveted Yeezy smile.

“Alright, so we good now?”

look who’s going to Hollywood! #IdolAuditions #kanyewest
