Obama likes 'Gangnam'; kids don't

The youngest West Wing residents also don’t sound like big fans of the latest viral sensation. When the glossy mag inquires whether Sasha and Malia are into anything that Obama is embarrassed to admit he likes as well, the president says, “No. They’re cooler than I am. There are things I like that they think are cheesy, like ‘Gangnam Style.’ I love that.”

Obama discloses he’s even done the gallop-filled dance: “Of course I have, but I’m not going to be doing it on front of you.”

The president takes a playful jab at his wife during their chat with People. When the first lady informs him that she was nominated for a Grammy award for the audio version of her book, American Grown, Obama quips, “Well, when you win two, like me, then let me know.”

Obama picked up two Best Spoken Word Album awards for the audio books for his tomes, Dreams From my Father and The Audacity of Hope.
