President Barack Obama spoke to Power 95.3 in Orlando, FL this morning to talk about politics and touch on pop music. If you remember,  Nicki Minaj had a line on Lil Wayne‘s Dedication 4 mixtape that seemed to endorse Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b****es is f****ng up the economy,” Minaj rapped on “Mercy.”

Obama responded to the lyric stating: “She likes to play different characters,” he said. “So I don’t know what’s going on there.” President Obama was also asked if his daughters, Sasha and Malia, listen to Nicki Minaj to which he responded “I don’t think they really listen to Nicki Minaj that much.” Hit the jump to listen to the clip.
