On her verse on Lil Wayne's "Mercy" Nicki Minaj supposedly endorsement, rapping, "I'm a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy bitches is fuckin' up the economy." Now, President Barack Obama has responded to the line supporting his opponent, stating that his daughters Malia and Sasha don't listen to the Harajuku Barbie very often before sharing his views on the rap.
"You know, I don't think they really listen to Nicki Minaj that much. But let's face it, they are now hipper than me," he said. "There's a certain point where your kids get old enough where they're just hipper than you are, and Michelle and I, for folks of 50 or as she likes to point out close to 50, because she's not 50 yet, we try to keep up so we've got a nice Hip Hop collection on our iPods."
Asked directly about the line, the POTUS said that he wasn't sure "what's going on there" and chalks it up to her "playing different characters. "Yeah, I'm not sure that's actually what happened. I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that. But she likes to play different characters. So I don't know what's going on there."
Nicki Minaj Supports Mitt Romney? What kinda black american female are you?
Nicki Minaj has raised the ire of seemingly radical Democrats on Twitter with a rap line that implies she will be supporting Mitt Romney in the upcoming presidential election.
“I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy b***hes is f-ing up the economy,” Minaj raps on Lil Wayne’s new mixtape Dedication 4.
The move, whether or not she means it, has caused a seemingly endless flow of insults to the rapper.
Minaj has not commented on the matter, via Twitter or otherwise.
