President Obama Addresses Nicki Minaj Mitt Romney Rap

Nicki Minaj sparked debate with her politically-minded verse on the remix to “Mercy.” Now President Obama himself is speaking out about the Young Money rapper’s bars backing Mitt Romney.

 “I’m a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney/ You lazy bitches is fu**in’ up the economy,” rhymes Nicki on the cut off Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape.

While some interpreted it as an endorsement of the Republican candidate, Obama viewed it as her playing a character. “I’m not sure that’s actually what happened,” he said during an interview with Power 95.3’s “Obie and Lil Shawn Morning Show.” “I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that, but she likes to play different characters, so I don’t know what’s going on there.”

Nicki thanked the President for getting her. “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support* @BarackObama,” she tweeted.

She was also flattered that he would take the time to react to the rap. “Awesome! Now I can tell my grandchildren that the 1st black President of the United States took the time to address a Nicki Minaj question.”

While his daughters Sasha and Malia don’t listen to Nicki’s music, the First Couple does have hip-hop on their playlists. “We have a nice hip-hop collection on our iPods,” said Obama.

Prince Michael Blast Janet Jackson and Other Family Members

As you all have heard the Jackson Family drama continues to boil as family members come forward to share their side of the story.  Well Prince Michael (15), the eldest of  Michael Jackson kids, had a statement of his own. He released a letter via Twitter along with a damning text message.

I would first like to start off this tweet by thanking the fans that have always stood by me and my family, my dad really appreciated your support and I still treasure it to this day. As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side. As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt. The following image is of a group chat I had started to several family members. This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. “If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth”

-Michael Jackson Jr.

Good Deeds in the NFL: Coach Greg Schiano Signs Paralyzed Eric LeGrand

Greg Schiano has been the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach for just three months. And you are already seeing why Rutgers fans wish he stayed.

On October 16, 2010, Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand was on the field for a kickoff return against Army. During the play, LeGrand suffered a serious neck injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. That was the last football play of his career. His coach at the time was Greg Schiano.

Coach Schiano and the Buccaneers signed paralyzed defensive tackle Eric LeGrand. It was a symbolic and generous gesture from Schiano to his former player. Signing LeGrand was yet another example that shows what kind of a man Schiano is.

In the past 12 months, we have seen plenty of bad news in football. There were NCAA violations at Ohio State. An alleged sex abuse scandal surfaced at Penn State. The NFL punished the New Orleans Saints for their bounty program. And today, former NFL great Junior Seau was found dead from a suspected suicide.

The NFL needed some good news. Coach Schiano provided some. He brought a little honor and integrity back into the league. He should be admired and respected for repeatedly supporting his former player. Even with his fresh start in Tampa Bay, Schiano did not forget LeGrand. He remains loyal to him. He continues to help LeGrand in his time of need.

Schiano’s simple gesture sends strong messages. To his players it says, “play for me and I’ll be there for you.” To everyone else it says, “remember the important things in life.” What you see is what you get with Schiano. And I have seen a lot of good.

I’ve already stated why I think Coach Schiano will be a great head coach for the Buccaneers. The season hasn’t even started and you are already seeing why. Even if Schiano never wins a Super Bowl, he will always be a winner in my eyes. He will continue to be a great example for his players. He will win the right way. Schiano is exactly what the NFL needs right now.

HOW DOPE WAS THIS??!! Tupac Hologram Performs Alongside Dr. Dre And Snoop Dogg At Coachella 2012

For the fans, it was likely epic, exciting, and spooky all rolled up in one. On Sunday night (April 15), at the Coachella music festival, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg made history by bringing out a performing hologram of the late rapper, Tupac Shakur.

After Dr. Dre’s performed his part of “California Love,” the lights went off and a moving image of Tupac appeared and greeted Dre, Snoop, and the Coachella crowd. Hologram Tupac then performed “Hail Mary” in what some called an eerie and chilling fashion, and then lightened the mood with a duet with Snoop Dogg for “2 of America’s Most Wanted,” in which the image danced around the stage. Once that song was finished, the image of Tupac disappeared.

Video of the hologram commanded instant hits online, as fans on social networks heavily discussed the topic while watching the Coachella live stream on YouTube.

Adele Wants Duet with Beyoncé

Usher might be out here telling folks that “the world deserves” a collaboration between he and Adele (his words, not mine), the British sensation herself has her eyes set on another R&B star to record with. Speaking with NRJ radio in France, Adele noted that wanted to work with the late Etta James, but she’s gone she would  go with Blue Ivy Carter’s mama.

Adele said: “I adore Beyoncé, I’ve been listening to her since I was about 11. I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable in terms of the length of her career and how she’s grown and grown, but most of my inspirations are [from] old music and sadly they have all died.”

Adele has spoke quite fondly of Beyoncé for years now, so given her stan status (compliment) it makes sense for her to say she’d like to work with Bey
