Kanye West compared his fiance, Kim Kardashian, to Michelle Obama during an interview with Ryan Seacrest.

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue,” West said. “She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday.”

West described his future wife and himself as the “most influential” couple in fashion right now.

“No one is looking at what [Barack] Obama is wearing,” the 36-year-old rapper said. “Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”
