Barack Obama was at a Town Hall meeting  in California where he attacked hip hop and rap music's frequent portrayal of what it means to be successful.
Obama said:   We live in a culture where our worth is measured by how much money we have and how famous we are. I will tell you, at the end of the day, the thing that will give you confidence is not that. I know a lot of rich people that are all messed up.   

 The 44th US president then took a shot at hip hop stars, saying:   If you are really confident about your financial situation, you’re probably not going to be wearing an 8-pound chain around your neck. If you’re very confident about your sexuality, you don’t have to have eight women around you twerking.
