In a recent interview with Kindle Singles, the United States' president said that Kim Kardashian, her rich, reality TV show family and boyfriend Kanye West are the reason why today's youth are obsessed with money and celebrity.
The president also basically said it's ridiculous for any celebrity to flaunt their riches on TV because it totally gives kids the wrong idea and changes people's aspirations.
"The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff -- a good job where you felt some security, a good education ... People felt if they worked hard they could get there ... I don't think people went around saying to themselves, 'I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house' ... I think there has also been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to the things we didn't have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success," the pres said in the interview.
This is the first time the president has talked about Kim but not the first time's he's dissed Kanye. Way back when Kanye dissed Taylor Swift at the VMAs, President Obama called him a jackass!
