At this point, especially when considering his thoughts on making the Confederate flag “my flag,” Kanye West is probably just trolling all of us. During an interview today (Oct. 29) with Ryan Seacrest, Yeezy asserted that his brand new fiancee, Kim Kardashian is more influential than the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

It’s not exactly a surprise that Kanye West is Kim Kardashian’s biggest fan. The 36-year-old musician sang his fiancée’s praises during an On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio interview on Tuesday, Oct. 29. In fact, he’s lobbying to get the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star her first Vogue cover.
“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,” he said, noting that reality stars have often been overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines. “And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”
Now we’re not going to argue about who really is more influential between Kardashian and the First Lady when considering fans, followers, reality shows and such barometers. However, whose come up would you want your daughter to pattern hers after? No shots.
Let us know what you think of Yeezy’s put Kim on the cover of Vogue, and get a star on Hollywood Boulevard, campaign in the comments.
