Last week we told you how Nicki Minaj endorsed Mitt Romney in Lil’ Wayne‘s “Mercy.” Well it has caused quite a stir, but Nicki has remained pretty tight lipped on the subject. However, once the president felt the need to weigh in on the topic, Nicki’s lips opened right up.
President Obama was asked what he thought about Nicki’s Romney endorsement in a radio interview. Obama said, “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.”
After hearing the president’s comments Nicki tweeted, “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support*. The female rapper also tweeted, “Awesome! Now I can tell my grandchildren that the 1st black President of the United States took the time to address a Nicki Minaj question.”
So she did endorse Romney, but she just didn’t mean it. Stars and their politics, it’s a confusing world.
