You would think, if you had the opportunity to speak with the President of the United States, that the first thing out of your mouth wouldn’t be about Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.y… but maybe that’s just me. During a recent interview with Michael Yo, of “The Yo! Show,” Obama answered questions about the “American Idol” beef brewing between the divas.

“I think that they are going to be able to sort it out. I am confident. 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,” said the POTUS. And, if he had to choose sides..he’s going with Mariah! “[Mariah’s] actually done some events for us. I’ve gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She’s a wonderful lady,” he said. The President also revealed that he has Nicki Minaj on his iPod.
