Shakira spoke with CNN’s Jessica Yellin about why she thinks President Barack Obama is different from other politicians. “You know I get to meet a lot of politicians, and you know they’re always a little bit distracted. They have a lot of things on their minds,” Shakira explained. “But I noticed President Obama is very focused. He really gets in touch with every person and connects with every person he’s talking to. You know he’s in the moment, and that is pretty remarkable. And he was very warm and very nice, as well as Michelle. What a woman, she’s very intelligent and also very accessible. I really liked them. I don’t sound very objective when I talk about the Obamas because I like them too much.” The singer added that she and Barack talked about education during their get together. The interview video at Turner.com has since been removed.
