Kanye West says he’s ‘past’ Obama, feels used by president

Rapper Kanye West is done with President Obama.

Mr. West, in a radio interview Monday morning, said he feels used by Mr. Obama and he’s not going to think about the president anymore.

“I’m not gonna mention him no more, I’m past that,” Mr. West  said of the president on Philadelphia station Hot 107.9. “That’s out my thoughts.  That’s lowering my priority of thinking at this point.”

The rift is probably not causing the president to lose any sleep.  Mr. Obama has referred to Mr. West at least twice publicly as a  “jackass,” including once in 2009 after the rapper interrupted Taylor  Swift on stage as she received an MTV Video Music Award.

When radio hosts Shamara and Laiya asked Mr. West if he would ever  “break bread” with the president, the rapper suggested that Mr. Obama  had used him as a foil for political purposes.

“Oh, you talking about how he use to come and visit me and my mama  and tell me he’s about to run for president?” Mr. West replied. “I just  think that we’re pop icons, and the president likes to use that type of  thing just to be down. People was fine with me being everyone’s punching  bag for about five years — ‘This is the person we love to hate, so if  you want to distract people from everything that’s going on … just  say you hate Kanye and there’s going be 30 other people who say they  hate Kanye.’ That was kind of my position in culture and he kind of used  that too — ‘Oh, he’s a jackass’ — because that’s how the world felt.

  3. Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
