Obama Not Sure if Nicki Ninaj Endorsed Romney

Says rapper may have been acting out a character


President Barack Obama says he isn't sure what to make of rapper Nicki Minaj's apparent endorsement of Mitt Romney, or whether to believe she was being serious.

"I'm not sure that's actually what happened," Obama told an Orlando hip-hop station this morning.

In a radio interview, the hosts of Power 95.3's "Obie and Lil'Shawn" show asked the president what he thought of a recently debuted Minaj song, which contains the lyrics "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy b*****s is f*****g up the economy." Minaj was featured as a guest artist on a Lil' Wayne album released last week.
