Nicki Minaj recently made a reference to “voting for Mitt Romney” in one of her songs. During Power 95.3’s “Obie and Lil’Shawn” show in Orlando, President Obama was asked about the apparent slight by the rapper.
“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,” said Obama, and one of the hosts agreed that it was probably Roman Zolanski, one of Minaj’s negative personas.
Minaj took to Twitter to clarify the issue, completing the full media loop in this issue and confirming that she was speaking through a “character”in the rap. “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do . . . *sends love & support* @barackobama” she tweeted.
