Did Nicki Minaj endorse Mitt Romney?
"Yeah, I'm not sure that's actually what happened," President Obama told an Orlando radio station on Monday morning.
After the provocative artist rapped “I'm a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney/ You lazy bitches is fuckin' up the economy” on a new Lil Wayne track, the POTUS gave his theory to Power 95.3.
"I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that. But she likes to play different characters,” Obama said. “So I don't know what's going on there."
Turns out he was right to read between the lyrics. "Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support*
@BarackObama," Minaj tweeted on Monday.
Obama, who admitted during the interview he and the First Lady have “a nice hip hop collection on our iPods,” said his daughters, Sasha and Malia, aren’t huge Minaj fans.
"I don't think they really listen to Nicki Minaj that much," he said. "But let's face it, they are now hipper than me. There's a certain point where your kids get old enough where they're hipper than you are."
