Accountability.  Something that gets lost in the fray, at times.  This is a lesson we should all learn, especially those of us in influential positions. Nicki Minaj had to learn that the hard way, after appearing on the Mercy (Freestlye) remix on Lil Wayne‘s mix tape.  The lyric in question went like this:

 “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy b—-es is f—ing up the economy.”

*Crickets*

Yeah.  After that, there was an anti-Nicki Twitter movement with people boycotting her and her music because of her “admitted” Republican stand point.  President Obama admitted he didn’t understand if Nicki was using one of alters or not, but he did throw a little shade when he said, Sasha and Malia don’t listen to Nicki Minaj that much…After President Obama’s comments, Nicki spoke out on Twitter directly to President Obama to address the lyrics herself: 

President Obama:

You know, I don’t think they really listen to Nicki Minaj that much. (Code for we don’t allow our kids to listen to that music)

President Obama on Nicki’s voting Republican lyrics:

Yeah, I’m not sure that’s actually what happened. I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that. But she likes to play different characters. So I don’t know what’s going on there. (Code for I don’t get it, I prefer Jay-Z).

 

Nicki Minaj responds on twitter:

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

I don’t think he understood Nicki…Maybe next time you’ll choice your words a little more wisely, Nic
