When it comes to being the leader of the Free World, it would probably behoove you to remain neutral on totally inconsequential pop culture feuds. Unfortunately, common sense behooves you to recognize Mariah Carey as the flawless diva genius she is, which is why we’re assuming President Obama decided to hype her on Michael Yo‘s radio show over Nicki Minaj. “Mariah. She’s actually done some events for us. I’ve gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She’s a wonderful lady,” POTUS said when asked which of the two AI judges he preferred. According to TMZ, he added “Nicki, I don’t know, but I’ve got her on my iPod.” Shouldn’t have done that Mitt Romney shout out, girl!
Despite the explosive antagonism that two divas can bring to a reality competition show, Obama is certain Nicki and Mariah can make peace. “I think that they are going to be able to sort it out,” the President opined. “I am confident.” Says Obama, “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.” So basically if you continue this feud, ladies, you’re letting down the President. Something to think about when you notice the other one’s dressing room is 4″ inches wider or their mid-morning massage 30 seconds longer.
