Nicki Minaj Is Not Registered To Vote


If Nicki Minaj makes the decision to endorse Mitt Romney in the forthcoming election, she may want to take care of something first: registering to vote.

Minaj was flooded with media clips Tuesday (Sept. 4) when a snippet from  her lyrics on Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape revealed that she is a Republican and voting for Romney. The line may have been blown out of proportion but in an age when  personal information is just a Google search away, the 29-year-old was quickly exposed for her voting past, or lack thereof. 

As it turns out, in the three states where she’s lived, Minaj is not registered to vote. Having resided in Georgia, New York and California the Young Money Barbie never seemed to find the time to fill out and mail in a registration card, or do it online.

Minaj’s Romney lyrics, although pretty self-explanatory, have been picked apart with a fine tooth comb, mostly due to the fact that she’s Black and got her footing in the Hip-Hop world. Placing her in both boxes brings forth the automatic assumption that she would be a supporter of President Obama who has a large majority of the Black vote, and has been praised by many of her partners in rhyme, including Jay-Z and Young Jeezy. The idea that she would stand on the side of Romney, who offers very conservative views on topics like abortion and gay rights (the latter of which makes up a good portion of Minaj’s fan base, since there was  a time when she announced herself as the first “gay rapper”), was jarring to many in the online world who littered the social media sector after hearing of her alleged allegiance to 65-year-old former governor.

To be fair, she never signed up to be a spokesperson for voting, but she had to know that the lyric was going to cause a little controversy, which may have been her intention.

    F*ck that b*tch…that is all

  • LeGioNoFZioN

    much ado about nothing

  • My thing is that line speaks VOLUMES about her as a person because the same “Lazy B*tches” that’s fu*kin up the economy made a VERY RICH BI(C)TH. I don’t think Nicki understands that lines like that get taken very seriously NOT because shes Black and A Rapper, but simply because She is a WOMAN and Romney is trying to take ALL of our rights to live a Pro-Choice lifestyle

    • EXACTLY!

      • and to make matters worse shes not even REGISTERED TO VOTE!!!

      • Uh yea, that’s what the article is about.

      • Good!!!

    • Miss_Understood

      ALSO, Nicki did admit to having an abortion in the past…

    • Mikey

      I think she understands and gets and she does not give a damn. She is the rich one. I mean she said before that she speaks in code. I know celebrities do things to stay relevant in the media, but more and more she is just becoming more disgusting with her actions and just more fake unfortunately. I feel sad for her.

    • IN THAT ORDER!!!

  • @missphillips86

    Atleast back in the 80’s and 90’s, when rappers were more political based, they KNEW what they were talking about. Can you imagine Tupac doing something like this??? Seriously??? We all gots to do better.

  • Honeybelle5

    I wonder if she’d even a citizen

  • Meeka Blaze

    B**ch is so freaking bi-polar she don’t know if she is Dem or Rep.. or Gay or Straight…

    • She admits she isnt “Gay” either she just does it to sell music, In other words she is telling you in code dont believe anything I say because Im fake

  • Enlightened

    This is what sell outs do. They push low level thinking to the Black community and use their celebrity status to lead the lost to hell. We see you, whack candy rapper!

  • Well she wants to be Barbie – Blonde Bimbo

  • I respect the guts it took to expose an opinion like that. She obviously knew the consequences of coming out contrary to what she was told her views should be.

  • Nocares

    Is she even a citizen? She was born in tridad. I wonder if she is a naturalized citizen.

  • lilkunta

    nicki was born in trinidad. she may be a permanent resident and not a usa citizen so maybe that is why she isnt registered to vote.
