But, while the performer has been tight-lipped about the whole thing, the POTUS himself addressed it yesterday on a radio show in Orlando: "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." Soon after, Nicki tweeted to confirm Obama's doubts: "Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do... *sends love & support.*"
And then, later, a little more adulation: "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." The takeaway: Obama is aware of Nicki Minaj's alter egos (pop-culture cred!), and Nicki Minaj loves a good mixed message. Case closed. (Hollywood Reporter, Nicki Minaj Twitter)
