Controversial entertainer Kanye West has finally spoken about President Barack Obama informally labeling him a "jacka**" after his 2009 televised Video Music Awards fiasco last year.
From Yeezy's perspective, Obama's comment was playful and unintentional.
"When Obama called me 'jack*ss,' after the Taylor [Swift] incident, I thought that the person to be speaking off the record. Obama has way more important stuff to worry about than my public perception. He was trying to pass the healthcare bill. And if he said that to relate to the room or lighten the room up and the whole mood, then I'd be more than happy to be the butt of all of his jokes if it in the some way helps his overall mission. I'm a soldier of culture. I'm resilient. I'm sure I'll still beat him in basketball." (Karen Civil)
