Nicki Minaj made some interesting headlines earlier in the week when, on the Dedication 4 track "Mercy," she declared, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b*tches are f*cking up the economy.”
Nicki instantly caught flack from the Internet about her bars. One of the people who isn't criticizing the rapper, however, is musical peer Ne-Yo.
Ne-Yo is on full promotional mode, pushing his upcoming R.E.D. album, which is an acronym Realizing Every Dream. Rolling Stone caught up with the singer before the VMAs yesterday and Ne-Yo talked about the album's guest appearances. According to the singer, Diddy, Stargate and No I.D. all contributed to the album.
Ne-Yo also mentioned that he wanted to work with Nicki Minaj. RS then asked Ne-Yo about Nicki's controversial bars. The singer, who is a Obama supporter, said:
"Politics is politics. Music is a whole 'nother thing. We don't have to agree on politics to do a great song together...Or possibly have wild, butt-naked sex."
Look Republicans, Ne-Yo has mad love for ya!
