Kanye and girlfriend Kim Kardashian are inseparable lately, so we were shocked when he wasn’t on her arm at the White House Correspondents Dinner! Does Kanye have a major beef with the President?
Kanye West seems tough on the outside, but he may have taken President Obama’s “jackass” insults to heart! He missed out on a glamourous date night with Kim Kardashian, 31, when she brought mom Kris Jenner to the April 28 White House Correspondents Dinner instead of him.
Obama first slung mud at Kanye after he infamously stole the mic from Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, and then defended his opinion of the rapper in the May issue of The Atlantic.
“He is a jackass,” the President said. “But he’s talented.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did Kanye skip the dinner because President Obama called him a jackass?
