Of Course Barack Obama Listens To Nicki Minaj

Our current president enjoys pro and college football and basketball, was born in Hawaii, says “uhhh” a lot and likes rap music. (In 2010 he told Rolling Stone that he enjoys Jay-Z, Nas, and Lil’ Wayne.) These are things that I know to be true about him.

Add Nicki Minaj to the list of music Obama works out to. After being asked about the feud between Nicki and Mariah Carey on American Idol, he responded:

“I think that they are going to be able to sort it out. I am confident. I am all about bringing people together. Working for the same cause. So, I think that both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that, you know, they’re moving forward and not going backwards.” 

I don’t know whether to blame the reporter who asked or Barack for answering.

“Mariah, she’s actually done some events for us. I’ve gotten to know her and Nick, and she’s a wonderful lady. Nicki I don’t know, but I’ve got her on my iPod.”

This isn’t terribly surprising. On top of already informing us that he likes her labelmate and frequent collaborator Lil’ Wayne, BO recently commented on Minaj’s “endorsement” of Romney in the song “Mercy.”

“I think she had…a little rap that said that, but she likes to play different characters,” he said during an interview with a Orlando radio station.

Alright we get it, you buy people beer and are up to date on pop culture. Go legalize pot or something. Sheesh. Joe Biden’s laughing in a dark corner surrounded by headless mouse carcasses as Obama gives detailed accounts of Nicki Minaj’s rap personalities and I’m still voting for them.
