President Obama has to be the busiest man in the United States right now. (You know with elections, trying to run America, holding the Commander in Chief position… the usual) But Obama just had to comment on the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey‘s alleged feud on the up-in-coming American Idol season. Who wouldn’t be concerned about these two divas, right?
The Commander in Chief called in to Miami radio personality Micheal Yo’s program The Yo Show last Friday to talk about his upcoming election, and the most concerning question just had to be addressed: Does he think the two divas fix their relationship?
According to Obama, seems like they’re going to be alright! The President states:
“I think that they are going to be able to sort it out. I am confident. I’m all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they’re moving forward and not going backwards.”
Now the better question: Is Obama taking any sides? Of course, in typical modest Obama fashion, the President takes neither teams. But after asked who was his favorite, Obama claims in his interview:
“Mariah, she’s actually done some events for us. I’ve gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She’s a wonderful lady. Nicki I don’t know, but I’ve got her on my iPod.”
I think Team Mariah won this one. Sorry Team Nicki. But hey… maybe Nicki Minaj shouldn’t have rapped about voting for Mitt Romney on the latest version of the song “Mercy”! I think that might have altered the Commander in Chief’s decision making process on this complex issue.American Idol, Barack Obama, Divas, feud, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj
