Delusional Kanye Thinks Kim Kardashian Is More Influential Than Obama

Eye Roll 8

I bet Kim Kardashian is getting pretty tired of all these Michelle Obama comparisons. I mean, the First Lady may have graduated from Harvard Law School, and may just be working to curb childhood obesity with her "Let's Move" movement while promoting arts education and supporting military families, but -- big whoop -- Kim looks stunning in a swimsuit just months after giving birth! Michelle's selfie skills aren't nearly as impeccable, either.

Still, according to Kanye West, his fiance is more influential than Obama, and if anyone deserves to be on the cover of Vogue, it's her. Child obesity and the ability to make a $50 J.Crew skirt look like couture, be damned.

There's something truly sweet about Kanye's delusional declaration, which he shared this week during his On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio interview. He clearly loves his girl, thinks she's tops, and believes she is beautiful and stylish enough to appear on the cover of the biggest fashion mag in the world. How many of us don't love to be told by our significant others that we are as gorgeous as movie stars? 

But I fear he is confusing "influential" with "notorious." Michelle makes people want to better themselves -- to lose weight for health purposes, support worthwhile causes, or volunteer their time to help others. Kim makes most of us want to find the quickest way to drop 10 pounds in seven days. Personally, she has influenced me to cover up my breasts more when I get dressed. 

And if I can defend Vogue for one second, I don't see this as an issue of "classicism," as Kanye describes it. I mean, both Lady Gaga and Rihanna have appeared on the cover and they aren't members of the royal family. But I'm afraid they have something Kim lacks -- individuality and personal style. They don't always hit the mark, but they also don't look like their boyfriends are helping them get dressed every morning. 

While I'd love to see Kim in Vogue because I know their editors could do wonders with her look -- she is a gorgeous woman, after all -- Kanye needs to cool it with the Obama comparisons and silly anti-everyone-who-hasn't-fallen-to-their-knees-for-Kim statements. 

Do you think Kim is more influential than Michelle Obama? Has she earned a Vogue cover?

What is funny is that you think its far fetched. Who do you really think kids and young adults are more closely emulating? It may not be Kim herself but it is closer to her than Mrs. Obama. Sad.

Kim should not be on the cover of Vogue. I hope the editor doesn't cave in to Kanye.

I guarantee Kim knows which hand to hold over her heart when saying the pledge of allegiance. I seen a photo of the President and First Lady, both were holding their arms (LEFT)against their heart.Kim should go on the cover of Vogue magazine. I'd buy it if she were. Not M. Obama.

How many Stir readers can correctly name all of the Kardashians? How many Stir readers can objectively and correctly discuss Obama's policies without resorting to rhetoric? It's not just young people that are the problem.

I guarantee you that any moron who claims Kim should be on the cover of Vogue has no business reading Vogue in the first place. Trash is not exactly Vogue's target audience. Hate to break it to you folks, but Vogue doesn't want your business in the first place. Trust me, my sister works for Conde Nast... KK may unfortunately be more influential amongst our country's youth, but that is an indictment against our society. But we can't expect much from our youth, who are being raised by idiots. 'I seen', (wth kind of English is that?) the kind of people who watch that "reality" show. They aren't anything to be proud of as Americans.

Um Kim's style was FLAWLESS before Kanye. And you can tell she's taken a good amount of control back since she had Nori because her outfits are much more her. She has great personal style. In fact it's one of the things she was known for.
