Obama On Nicki Minaj’s Romney Lyric

Unnecessary “controversy” stirred up when Nicki rapped on her “Mercy (Freestyle)”, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches is fucking up the economy”. Not grasping the sarcasm, various news outlets reported the non-registered-voting-rapper as a Republican.

This morning, the President spoke to Orlando’s Power 95.3 and gave his reaction to Nicki’s line. Don’t be a jackass and vote on November 6th.


UPDATE: Nicki’s take on the President’s reaction.

Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support* @BarackObama. 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

    Obama said “she likes 2 play different characters”, so he definately knows who she is and gets her style.
    Ain’t a brotha in the world that don’t look at Nicki’s fine ass. Even the president.

  • Courtney

    My president is black. I love him. And Nicki will be irrelavant one day soon. She’s not even registered!! She took her influence the wrong direction.

  • kofi

    It’s gonna be hard to vote on November 4th since the election is on November 6th.

    Who gives a shit anyway. If you let Nicki Manaj’s lyrics influence who you choose to govern the free world you’re obviously a DOUCHE who doesnt know jack shit about politics and should give up on life.

  • Ghost

    Obama is not “Black”. His Mother is White and from Kansas. And his Father is Black and from Kenya.. Idiots

    Anyways, Fuck Nikki’s Fake Ass!

  • STFU.

    ^^ Agreed.


  • How Wonderful…

    @ Ghost
    You are a fool. Anyone with a drop of black blood is considered black. Black is a race not an ethnicity. If you want to say he is bi racial you can. But he resembles a black man with black physical features. and STFU…do just that STFU.

  • you are a jack ass if you don’t vote? Is that what that last line is suggesting? I would argue that voting, especially with the idea that you are helping the country, is the move of a jack ass. I could point towards plenty of policy issues that shows why this is so, but i will simply direct your attention to the 13th amendment. Google it yourself and find out what it says. Then ask yourself who fills the prisons, and what that truly means. #WiseUP

  • excuse me, helping your people* Voting definitely helps this country, but it has, and continues to work against you.

  • rrahha

    Nicki has get her ass registered and she needs to vote. we all need to.

  • Monkey

    Why do blacks always point out and speak of their race? If we had an Asian or Hispanic elected as president, nobody wouldn’t say shit.

  • Deadprez

    Instead of encouraging folks to run out an vote maybe we should encourage them to educate themselves on how the electoral college ACTUALLY works so that they understand that what we were taught in school was bullshit… If you’re still under the immature, undereducated assumption that individual people’s votes are actually all counted and that they somehow determine who the president is… Well let’s just say you’re a naive motherfucker at best…

    How sad is it that our President has to make a statement about Niki Minaj lyrics? Priorities, there are none.

  • Yes, there are a lot of Republicans who love rap, hip-hop and Nicki’s music. She was right about the current administration messing up the economy. She is wrong that he is the first Black President. My parents are from Liberia and Ghana and black through and through… Obama is a hodge·podge and more Irish-Welsh-German (White European) and Arab than anything else. Wanna now more about what kind of America Obama wants, just listen to himself narrate “Dreams of my Father” they are in his words just as much his dreams… spoiler alert, the vision of America is not at all close to what it is now and even further from our founding fathers vision… 🙁 President and Mrs. Obama are both Great speakers, Great motivators, Great NLP practitioners but not that great at Leading America toward a prosperous future.

  • cumdump

    everybody missed the point of that verse . lazy bitches fucking up the economy , real rap !

  • Yes, that is a way to see that if that is what she meant… “…,lazy bitches is fu**ing up the economy” not necessarily a party or candidate or President… A lot of Americans are getting pretty lazy.

    Y’all just got the idea 4 years ago that Obama would’ve been elected and the next day everything would be fixed. It takes more than 4 years to fix things that Mr. Bush fucked up. It takes time. And changing a president every 4 years won’t do shit better because he barely established himself and the same goes for the next one: He is going to take 4 years to do a couple of things here and there and be established then on to the next one. I’m not saying who you should vote for it’s all about opinion. Here’s mine.

  • Kemosabi

    Some people on hear love to use big ass words to not say shit lol. S/o clif soulo I wasn’t sure exactly what you were saying so I checked up on the 13th amendment and more than get your point. To @ monkey I don’t even understand how stating the president is black would be a problem for anyone if he were Chinese like you said I wouldn’t have a problem with that either, what you should consider is the fact that segregation and slavery was not that long ago and to have a black man as the commander and chief of the most powerful nation in the western hemisphere gives black men and woman everywhere a sense of pride. Unless… You’re one of those crab in a bucket type nigga that speaks out of pocket about Italian folk lore.

  • Why does Ms Minag feel the need to criticize her very own audience?????? She needs to sit back and get a grasp on her very own demons…. Do me a favor or do yourself a favor and listen to her song named “Autobiography” this is a mentally and emotionally disturbed person…. She should try to think where her life would be if it wasnt for: porn, horse hair, injections, r&b, hip hop, rap, LIL KIM, diverse attitudes and ways of living being accepted by most of the nation (Lesbian & Gay)….. She really took a Low Blow at her fans and her 1st & Only Black President….

  • There is certainly a great deal to know about this subject. I really like all of the points you made.
