Kanye West might’ve won a bunch of Grammys and bagged Kim Kardashian, but he’s yet to win over one very important person: the president of the free world, Barack Obama. A reporter for The Atlantic recently stopped the Prez to ask him the question on everyone’s minds: Is he team Hova or team Ye?
When asked to choose between Kanye and Jay-Z, the President smiled and, without pause, said “Jay-Z.”
“Although I like Kanye,” Obama added. “He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.” But let’s not forget that time Obama criticized Kanye for his “Imma let you finish” moment when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. Obama doesn’t forget it either, reiterating, “He is a jackass.”
Meanwhile, over at Blue Ivy’s palace, Beyonce is reciprocating the Obama love. Beyonce posted a handwritten letter to First Lady Michelle Obama, calling her “the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman,” going on to gush about how Michelle has made the world a better place for Blue Ivy. “I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like [Michelle] to look up to,” she writes.
