People conducted the interview with Obama before Robertson's inflammatory comments to GQ were published.
Obama diplomatically avoided answering People's question about whether he'd spend a day in the company of the Robertsons or Kanye West, according to Time, although the President did say Kanye's music was "outstanding."
“I’ve got a lot of his stuff on my iPad," he said. "If it was a concert, then I might not mind listening to him.”
Obama's admiration for Kanye, however, hasn't been mutual of late.
