Despite the fact that he’s busy still wrenching the American economy out of a recession, there’s a presidential election happening in a few months, and that fact in general that he’s the leader of the most powerful nation on the planet, President Barack Obama was talking about Nicki Minaj during a radio interview on Monday morning.

One thing you look for in a world leader is taste, right? Take President Obama, for instance. The man loves classic rock, soul, hip-hop, etc. He’s got sharp taste and sharp ears. So when his opponent in the presidential race, Mitt Romney, announces his own favorite bands, you take notice. And, oh boy, this list is… actually, never mind, it’s not that surprising at all.

As if crooning Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” wasn’t cool enough, President Barack Obama took to Facebook today to put up a Spotify playlist of some of his favorite jams (or, more likely, he made a list and an aide posted it). He’s calling it Obama Campaign 2012 Playlist.

Remember when Barack Obama was super charming and likeable? You know, before he was President of the United States? Well, now that the president is beginning to campaign for our votes once again, he’s dropping his stern, professorial style and sliding back into Barack-the-charmer mode. Case in point: Obama serenading a fundraiser with a few lines from Al Green’s slow-jam soul classic, “Let’s Stay Together.” The even bigger shocker? He’s not half bad!

In between dodging rumors from the far-right that he is either a socialist or maybe just some kind of reincarnation of Hitler, as well as taking hits for not looking “sad” or “angry” enough about the BP disaster, a new accusation was lobbied at our harried Commander in Chief Barack Obama this week: that he was in the 1993 video for Tag Team’s “Whoomp! (There It Is).” Yup. At least we’re no longer debating whether or not he’s really an American, right? So that’s something.

We previously shared the news with you about Paul McCartney receiving one of the highest honor in pop music. Last night he went on over to the White House to take the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song but, of course, Paul McCartney doesn’t just show up to a place without putting on a classic “would’ve been cool to be there” kind of shows.
During the ceremony, there were musical offerings from the Beatle as he serenaded first lady, Michelle Obama, with – you guessed it – the song, “Michelle.” However, the house full of celebrities and musicians really threw it down when everyone joined in for a sing-along during “Hey Jude.” Check the video out below!
