In a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest today during On Air With Ryan Seacest, Kanye West referred to his fiancé Kim Kardashian as “the most intriguing woman right now”. He also shared that Barbara Walters has been “calling her like everyday.”

The Grammy Award-winning rapper and producer then noted that first lady Michelle Obama “cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day,” referring to a photo that Kim posted of herself donning a bikini.

Who is more influential? Kim Kardashian or Michelle Obama?

  • 792 (88.8%)
  • 100 (11.2%)
  • 892

While the couple may be very influential in the world of fashion and celebrity, influence is not something you can measure in sexy bikini pics.

During the long interview, Kanye expressed his frustration with the mainstream fashion magazines overlooking a reality television star like Kim Kardashian.

"There's a wall of classism that we are breaking through."
