Kanye West claimed about a year or so ago that he doesn’t like doing interviews, but he’s been giving them left and right these days as if he’s had a change of heart. The newly engaged rapper has been opening up plenty about his high-profile engagement to reality star Kim Kardashian but his most recent comments about his fiancée are getting lots of criticism. During his interview on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” the rapper actually said that his boo is more influential than First Lady Michelle Obama. Interestingly enough, he says his proof is the fact that Michelle O can’t post a photo of herself showing the world her booty via a swimsuit like Kim did a week ago. He says:

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday. And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”


He also made it clear that it was Kim’s looks alone that made him want to be with her from the first time he ever laid eyes on her:

“I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time. I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?”


While Kanye claims he doesn’t say or do anything for the sake of getting publicity or being controversial, many have taken to social media to suggest they are starting to think otherwise.

    Kim Kardashian is not more influential in clothing than Michelle Obama. Anytime Michelle wears a dress out to some event, it sells out. No one looks at Kim and wants to wear anything she puts on because she always looks cheap and slutty. And they aren’t influential in anything else either except a good laugh. My goodness they have really become the laughing stock of America.

    That’s funny because when I pick up the top magazines on fashion, they are talking about what Michelle Obama wore. A top magazine just used Naomi Campbell to dedicate a whole spread to Michelle. Meanwhile Kim wear’s some of the most hideous garments I’ve ever seen. LOL. Kanye is hilarious.

    Ok. It’s clear now that Kanye is trolling and saying all this stuff because he wants the attention. That man does not love Kim, he loves the attention that comes with being with Kim. When the hype dies down which it will, he will be looking for the next Kim K. I can’t believe I used to like him and support his music. Gross.

    Everything he says and does now is for shock value and J. Cole still outsold Yeezus. Sorry Ye, but your stunts aren’t working. People still aren’t buying your terrible album. Shut up and just get back in the studio and stop playing games. Your career is two seconds away from being finished.

    I’m so glad I didn’t buy this n-gga’s last album. *wipes forehead*

    I can’t even defend him on this one. Nope. Can’t.

    So if anyone else needed proof that Kim and Kanye are not in love and are only together for business reasons, here you go.

    It’s kind of hard to be Team Kimye when every time Kanye explains why he loves her it’s nothing but superficial reasons. It’s really sad.

    • Ms. Jackson

      Agreed. You love someone because they are famous? Oh and because they took a selfie of them sticking out their fake booty? Kanye is a simpleton.

    Kim and Kanye don’t love each other, they love all the attention they get as a couple. Watch them get that good ole divorce when the public loses interest.

      The public has already lost interest. The only reason they are still in the media every day is because Kris pays for press. She got put on blast by Access Hollywood the other day too for it. The K’s play dirty. They aren’t relevant because people are interested. It’s because they can pay to play.

    Kim influences TRASH. Real women are inspired by Michelle Obama.

    Sorry Kanye, I’m actually more impressed by Michelle Obama. You see she actually got her own money and had success WITHOUT a sex tape. Barack was just the cherry on top, not her only accomplishment. That’s impressive. #shrugs

    He’s doing all this trolling and his album still ain’t platinum yet. Oh the irony.

    “Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.” <<< Idiot, Michelle doesn't want to. Unlike Kim, she actually got what she has in life with her brain, not her body. He's impressed by some of the simplest ish I swear.

    Oh Kanye please keep running your mouth! It just makes it all the more sweeter for when the divorce happens!

    He said this for attention. It’s getting boring now. Does he not understand this won’t help his career? People are over Kimye and have been since North West was born. He’s a true Kardashian now and we’re over it.

    This is just another reason why I will never support Kanye again.

    These two take themselves way too seriously. They talk like they are respected by the world and some kind of power couple. But the truth is they are two clowns no one takes seriously.

    Lies. Kanye seek help.

    I love Kim but I strongly disagree!

    Yeah and we still won’t buy your album or give a damn about Kim. Just stop it.

    Yeah I’m selling my Yeezus tickets. I don’t want to support this guy anymore. All he talks about is Kim all day and he’s become way too superficial. And the music isn’t all that good now. I don’t care to see him live anymore.

    Kim is not more influential than Michelle in any way. I think he just likes to hear himself talk.

    This is what happens when two of the world’s most delusional people get together.

    This is blasphemy! The audacity and the nerve of this idiot. How dare you try to put your slut of a baby mother in the same league as Michelle Obama or even above her. This is why people hate Kanye&Kim and everything they represent. Kanye loves what Kim represents not her its obvious after reading this. Not once did he mention her personality or things other than materialistic things representing their love.

    So basically their relationship is all about looks. Classy women look up to Michelle Obama, not Kim Kardashian.
