Kanye West, who vowed during a November 18 radio interview to never mention Barack Obama again, bravely reconsidering his stance on whether or not to discuss the president so that he could declare himself and his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, “most relevant”.
“The reason why Obama mentioned our name is ’cause we most relevant. Case in point! So if I say that, that’s cause it’s the case in point,” Kanye West attempted to explain during a Monday interview on Hot 97.
“He just say that trying to be cool! Obama was supposed to be the coolest person on the planet, now he gotta say our names to be cool. It’s like a feature; we featured in his interviews right now. They need a feature from us to get relevant!”
Kanye West initially vowed not to discuss the president again while speaking toPhiladelphia radio station Hot 107.9, declaring: “I’m not gonna mention him no more, I’m past that.”
The bad blood between Kanye West and Barack Obama, who once referred to the rapper as a “jackass,” came to a boil when the president lamented that young people these days regard the celebrity couple as “the mark of success.”
“Kids [in the past] weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success,” Barack Obama said during an interview with Amazon’s Kindle Singles site.
Kris Jenner defended her daughter and Kanye West on her chat show, saying:“I find it so odd that he’s picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation. Ever.”
“And Kim Kardashian is the hardest-working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down and works so hard for what she’s got.”
