Boy, that Kanye has some sense of humor…
If you hadn’t heard yet, he auditioned for “American Idol” over the weekend. The rap superstar was joined by his wife, Kim Kardashian, and their daughter North on Saturday as he put on quite the show for judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. in San Francisco. Kanye reportedly performed “Gold Digger.”
The Wests were in town for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser for President Obama that saw Kanye as the headlining performer. When the president came to the stage he came prepared with some advice for the rapper should he actually seek the White House in 2020. Obama said, quote “you have to spend a lot of time dealing with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show. So you’ve gotta be cool with that.”
The celebrity couple also had a little something for the leader of the free world. If Kim K’s Instagram page is to believed, they gifted President Obama with two pairs of Kanye’s very own sneakers, the Yeezy Boost 350 and 750.
