They’re the busiest family in America — but that doesn’t mean they’re not up to date on the world’s hottest music.
Asked about his favorite things of 2015, Barack Obama revealed to People magazine that Kendrick Lamar’s “How Much a Dollar Cost” is the song he can’t stop listening to.
First Lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, told the magazine that, like most of America, she got hooked on Bruno Mars’ ultra-catchy party anthem, “Uptown Funk.”
The first couple also opened up about their favorite moments of the year, with President Obama calling his cameo on an upcoming episode of Bear Grylls’ “Running Wild” nature survival show one thing he said “never thought” he’d do.
On the show, the leader of the free world traveled to Alaska with show’s resourceful host.
“Now, based on what I know of Bear, this could have gone a number of ways,” Obama told the magazine. “I did end up eating a salmon that had been gnawed on by an actual bear — but we had a great time.”
“The landscape was breathtaking, and so were the very real effects of climate change, which become hard to ignore when the ice is melting into your hands,” he continued. “I thought it was important to talk about protecting the only planet we have, but I never thought I’d be ‘Running Wild’ with Bear Grylls.”
He added that seeing people gather outside the White House after the Supreme Court upheld same-sex marriage was another one of his favorite moments.
Michelle Obama also revealed her most treasured moments came when she was hanging out with children across the world.
“Spending time with young people is always a highlight for me — in schools, on military bases, in the White House — anywhere, really,” she said.
The Obamas gave very different answers when asked to share their favorite film of 2015. President Obama chose Matt Damon’s action-packed space thriller “The Martian,” while the First Lady opted for the animated fan-favorite, “Inside Out.”
