President Obama: Kanye West Still a “Jackass,” But “Talented”
2:12 pm, April 12th, 2012
Kanye West is still a “jackass” — but a “talented” jackass.
At a recent event, writer David Samuels asked Obama, “Kanye or Jay-Z?”
“Jay-Z,” responded the President, adding, “Although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”
Referring to a previous remark Obama made about West’s behavior in the wake of his controversial interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Samuels asks, “Even though you called him a jackass?”
Obama is quoted as replying, “He is a jackass. But he’s talented.”
