Survey Says…. Kanye West Is More Influential Than President Barack Obama

- By Bossip Staff

SMH. In spite of, or maybe because of, all the controversy surrounding him, Kanye West was recently voted more influential than President Barack Obama.

Over 500,000 people voted in the survey on, putting the cocky musician at fifth place – higher than Jay-Z (13), George Clooney (18), and even President Obama (21).

Number one on the list? American TV presenter Jon Stewart, who hosts The Daily Show (No, we’re not sure who that is either). Further down however was rapper Eminem (24), Ben Affleck (25), singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake (33) and Leonardo DiCaprio (43).

We’re relieved Barack beat out Eminem, but seriously? Whatever happened to people looking for guidance from spiritual leaders — why aren’t Deepak Chopra and the Dalai Lama on this list? Do you think people put too much stock in Jay-Z, Kanye West and other celebrity men?

We shouldn’t be surprised by these results. If there is anything that shows the power of Kanye West’s influence it’s Amber Rose. The world essentially embraced a bald-headed bisexual ex-stripper with wide arms just because Kanye did. SMH.
