Kanye West likes to namedrop, whether it’s an individual he’s calling out or someone he’s inspired by.
During a chat at Oxford University earlier this month, he spoke to students about everything from music to fashion to an allegedly personal relationship with President Obama.
“I understand that I’m a servant. And with my voice, with my ability to build relationships with amazing people, speak to amazing people… Call Elon Musk out of the blue or call Obama out of the blue… he calls the home phone, by the way,” Ye said.
Obama cleared up Kanye’s claims during a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, clarifying that the pair have met in the past, but no, he doesn’t call his home phone.
“I’ve met Kanye twice. The first time, when I was a senator…. and then, six months ago, he came to an event.” said the President. “Look, I love his music and he’s incredibly creative… umm, I don’t think I’ve got his home number.”
