It's Up to The Nose to Deal With Donye

Now, maybe this was just a convention of major a-holes. We grant you that. But it got us to thinking about the relationship between the presidency and the arts, the President and pop culture.

Seemingly, the arts world embraced President Obama. But did he embrace it back? And then, Kanye (and Scott Baio and Kid Rock) notwithstanding, DOTUS's relationship with the pop culture community is already off to a rocky start.
