I’m assuming Kanye West is still a fan of President Barack Obama, but of course he’s offended by the rude comments the president made about him and his baby mama, Kim Kardashian.
Last week, Obama discussed the public’s obsession with the celebrity couple. He talked about the “shift in culture” and said in the past, “Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim was wearing or where Kanye was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”
Kanye reportedly spoken out about the remarks to his friends.
“Kanye heard what the president said and he wasn’t too thrilled about it,” a source close to the rapper told HollywoodLife.com. “He was just like, ‘Whoa, even Obama taking shots at me.’”
While Kanye, 36, and Kim, 32, both “like and respect” Barack, the couple believes the president’s comments were insensitive and without merit — and they’re not about to let his diss affect their lives.
“Ain’t like what Obama said is going to change anything,” the source continues. “It ain’t going to change how he and Kim live their lives. It’s not about to change how much money they make. It’s not going to change anything, not even how the fans think.”
Kanye says he and President Obama actually have one thing in common — they are both trying to make history.
“Everybody know Kanye don’t care s**t about being famous — he hates it,” the source says. “All he’s trying to do is inspire people through his music and go down in history as one of the greatest artist who ever held the mic. Same as Obama is trying to do as president — leave a legacy behind.”
