“My girls tease me about wearing my BlackBerry in a holster connected to my belt,” he tells the magazine in its November issue, featuring the Kardashian sisters on the cover.
“Michelle and I have officially (and famously) been on a Kiss Cam. But our first kiss was outside of a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Chicago’s Hyde Park,” he says, a story he told ABC’s “The View” in September.

“I’m the first president to ever tweet.” Check.
“When I work out, I like to listen to Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder and the Rolling Stones on my iPod.” Check.

The president has sat down with a slew of talk shows and entertainment magazines in the run-up to the election, speaking recently with Jay Leno, MTV and Rolling Stone.
