Kanye West says even Michelle ObamaMichelle ObamaThe Trail 2016: Miss Universe crashes campaign Former Miss Universe becomes surprise story to emerge from debate Michelle Obama’s moving woes MORE can’t top his fiancé, Kim Kardashian, on the social networking site Instagram.
In a wide-ranging interview Tuesday with Ryan Seacrest, the “Yeezus” rapper said the reality show starlet attracts far more attention on the photo-sharing website Instagram than the first lady.
“Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day,” he said.
West was likely referring to a risqué shot Kardashian — who has more than 11 million followers — posted earlier this month, baring most of her bottom in a white getup. The snapshot has been liked by nearly 1 million Instagram users.
The president’s wife, who joined Instagram back in June, has about 430,000 followers.
West’s comparison came as he railed against what he called the “classist” culture of Hollywood, saying, “We have our cool table … and 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.”
He then added, “No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing.”
Obama famously called West a “jackass” in an off-the-record portion of a 2009 CNBC interview.
Michelle Obama also revealed in a 2011 sit-down that the commander in chief “doesn’t like” daughters Sasha and Malia watching E!’s “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
