Barack Obama is dealing with the final days of his reelection campaign and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which ravaged the East Coast this week, upending the lives of millions in the process. What does the president do when he's not leading the nation during difficult times? According to a new interview with Us Weekly -- likely given well before the events of this week, but published in the latest issue -- Obama likes watching "Homeland" and working out to the dulcet tones of Stevie Wonder.
Per Us Weekly (via Mike Allen's Politico Playbook; the full interview with Obama is not yet online), the president also enjoys Jay-Z and the Rolling Stones while exercising.
That Obama would listen to Jay-Z while lifting weights and doing cardio shouldn't be too surprising. The president and the rap icon are friendly, with Obama recently saying in a radio interview that he gave Jay parenting advice. (Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce have a young daughter, Blue Ivy.) Obama cited the Jay-Z track "My First Song" as one of his favorites.
Obama's 2012 campaign playlist also showed the president's diverse musical taste, with selections from No Doubt to Earth Wind and Fire on the list.
