Kanye Unleashes on Obama, Spills Details of Personal Insults and Snubs
Kanye West spilled all the juicy details about the rift between him and former President Barack Obama in an interview with TV personality Charlemagne that lasted over an hour.
"Obama came to me before he ran for office and he met with me and my mother to let me know he was going to run for office because I am his favorite artist of all time," he said. West detailed that Obama asked him for his support and he agreed.
But after West interrupted Taylor Swift on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009 — which he apologized for immediately – Obama cut off support and was even caught on film calling West a "jackass."
"He never called me to apologize," said West. "The same person that sat down with me and my mom I think should have communicated to me directly."
He went on to troll the former president in a subtle but shocking way: "I love Obama! I'm sure we'll hang out, go to Richard Branson's island.... [It'll] be cool," said West, conjuring images of Obama frolicking in the surf with Branson. Anyone following the news recently knows that Branson's private island has been implicated in the underage sex trafficking scandal that Hollywood star Allison Mack is facing indictment for. It is highly doubtful anyone, except investigators, will be visiting Branson's island soon. Surely, West knows that.
