Nicki Minaj Confirms She Is Not Endorsing Romney, Thanks President Obama
After receiving a slew of backlash from fans and foes alike, Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter account to let the world know that she is not endorsing Mitt Romney for this year’s presidential race. In a song titled “Mercy” on Lil Wayne’s mixtape, Nicki Minaj says: ““I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney. You lazy b*tches is f*cking up the economy.” Following the lyrics, critics sent her messages via Twitter criticizing her for endorsing Romney. She even received some death threats via Twitter for her alleged endorsement as well. When asked by a local radio station if he believed Nicki Minaj was endorsing his opponent, President Obama said he didn’t think her lyrics were an actual Romney endorsement, adding “She likes to play different characters.”
Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter account to thank President Obama for understanding “my creative humor and sarcasm.” She followed up by sending her support to him by tweeting, “the smart ones always do…sends love & support.” Fans were appalled when Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter page earlier this year to challenge President Obama on healthcare. The pop-star was apparently saddened and frustrated by the death of Yvette Wilson, actress on “Moesha” and “The Parkers,” in which sources close to the actress said she’d depleted her finances on medications and treatments for cancer.
She tweeted: “And had to raise [insert dollar] for her MEDS—>> RT@sponfulofsass Oh no Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer tonight. God Bless her. ((,” she initially tweeted in response to Wilson’s death. “Whats sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions. On her death bed tho, #Nowheretobefound,” she continued. “RT @Nickk_maraj The fact that money had to be raised for her medical expenses when she obviously couldn’t prevent this,” another tweet read. “That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @barackobama What can we do?” she asked the President. “@BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir,” she challenged the President. There is no public record of a response from the Oval Office to Nicki Minaj’s questions.
