Kanye West does have some very influential friends in some very high places – Anna Wintour, Riccardo Tisci, Valentino Garavani and erm, Ryan Seacrest to name a few, but there is one person who is definitely not on his Christmas card list anymore.
When he’s not busy reforming US laws President Obama likes to catch up with his rapper mates like Jay Z and Common, but his penchant for hip hop aficionados has landed him in trouble with the outspoken Kanye. The Yeezus star claimed during his lecture at Oxford University last week that the President had once called his house for a chat, stating: “Obama calls the home phone, by the way.” However, West’s mate doesn’t have any recollection of making such a call and revealed the truth during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! saying that he’d only met Kanye twice and has never had his home digits. “I love his music and he’s incredibly creative, [but] I don’t think I’ve got his home number,” said Obama.
With neither side backing down this “beef” could escalate into the next big celebrity feud. Move over Katy Perry and Taylor Swift!
