Obama ‘not sure’ Nicki Minaj endorsed Mitt Romney

September 10, 2012

In an interview with Power 953 in Orlando, President Obama weighs in on the great Nicki Minaj-Mitt Romney controversy.

(In case more important things have been occupying your time, Minaj recently rapped on a Lil Wayne song, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney.”) 

Asked if Minaj had endorsed his opponent, Obama responded, "I'm not sure that's actually what happened. I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that." But, he noted accurately, "she likes to play different characters."
