He doesn't think his kids listen to her very much...
Billboard reports that President Barack Obama has responded to a line on Lil Wayne's Dedication 4 mixtape from Nicki Minaj that reveals her support for Mitt Romney. It appears in the song "Mercy".
She rapped: "I'm a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy bitches is fuckin' up the economy."
In an interview with Power 95.3 in Orlando, Florida, President Obama said: "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."
Before talking about the verse specifically, he said he doesn't "think" his daughters Sasha and Malia listen to Minaj "that much". He added: "I don't think they really listen to Nicki Minaj that much. 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. Michelle and I, for folks of 50 or as she likes to point out close to 50, because she's not 50 yet, we try to keep up so we've got a nice Hip Hop collection on our iPods."
