Nicki Minaj 'Endorses' Mitt Romney Just to Mess With Our Heads

Say What!? 7

nicki minajWell the Internets are a flutter over the most unlikely endorsement of the election season so far: Nicki Minaj for Mitt Romney. Whaaaat? Mittens appealing to hip hop artists? Hey Clint Eastwood, you was sleeping on stage, you were dosin' -- now MOVE. Nicki's goin' in.

In a new Lil' Wayne release Nicki raps, "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy bitches is f$&%ing up the economy." Okay, first of all, how much do I love hearing the word "economy" in a hip hop song. But secondly, I don't believe for a minute that this is a real live Romney endorsement. This is Minaj we're talking about here. She's playing with us, obvs!

I think Nicki is just impersonating a Republican. She takes on other personas in her songs all the time. "I'm Roman, I'm a barbarian, I'm Conan" anyone? And that "you lazy bitches" line sounds more like she's mocking what Republicans say -- I mean, I just spent a week with my more conservative relatives. I got an earful of that kind of talk.

I've been watching Nicki's Twitter feed hoping she will comment on the lyrics -- but nope. Here's what she said back in June according to CNN, though: "Just give FREE health care to all. @BarackObama what can we do?" and "@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?"

Yeah, doesn't sound like she's a fan of supply-side economics to me. Then again, it doesn't sound like she's a major fan of Obama, either. She's kind of getting on his case. Forget all the flap about Nicki voting for Romney -- will she vote for anyone at all? That's none of my BEEZness! But it's cool to think politics are on her mind and that she's maybe getting her fans to pay closer attention ... just in time for the DNC convention! Hmmm ....

What do you think Nicki Minaj's Romney lyrics are about?

I think it's both sad and somewhat predictable that Nicki received death threats on her Twitter feed because of this. If I can find the link to the blog, I'll come back and post it here.

Romney is a rich pariah who simply can’t identify with ANY average American through his fog of lies and network of havened money. He’ll only continue to get booed out of the room by every group of minority and middle class voters he comes across. His religion and wealth is highly elitist and everyone in this country has had it with his kind. We’re telling Mitt he can’t buy this election! Read about the role of his money and his Magic Mormon Underwear are playing in the polls at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/05/mitt-romneys-magic-mormon-underwear.html

@Brandt - Magic Mormon underwear? Really? I'm sure you can come up with quite a few ways to push your political agenda without bashing an entire religion that you obviously know nothing about. SMH.

First of all i think everyone has the right to vote for who ever they want and i think if nicki just had of said she was voting for mittens that would have been just fine with the civilized American but when she call the Democrats lazy bitchies that's where she f***ed up at .I'm a democrat i get up every morning and go to work . And there are a lot of democrats out there that are hurting and can't feed their kids not because they are lazy but because of economic reasons there aren't a lot of jobs out there so for these people to hear someone whose rich and spend her money snorting powder call them lazy bitchies i would say that that is a good reason to be very angry with her.
