We can always expect a candid comment from Nicki Minaj.
The bodacious babe is usually very honest about her opinions, so weren’t surprised that she discussed her political views in Billboard‘s annual No. 1s issue!
The brunette babe was specifically asked how she feels about controversial candidate Donald Trump, and she confessed that his campaign has the makings for television gold.
However we’d like to stress to you, Perezcious readers, that the mag claims the interview was done BEFORE the GOP hopeful’s recent remarks about banning Muslim immigration in the US.
The 33-year-old said:
“There are points he has made that may not have been so horrible if his approach wasn’t so childish. But in terms of entertainment — I think he’s hilarious. I wish they could just film him running for president. That’s the ultimate reality show.”
The rapper also applauded Hillary Clinton‘s run, even though she didn’t specifically say whether or not the former first lady has her vote, explaining:
“I support her as a woman. Am I convinced that she should be the next president? I still want to be open-minded about everyone. Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman. I identify with the fact that when she’s in that room and there are nothing but men there — there’s sometimes something in her that must feel intimidated. But I think that she uses that and turns it into a strength. Because that’s what I’ve always done. And so I love her for sticking it out. She has gone through horrifying things, even within her marriage. She has been brave and weathered the storm. And continued being a boss. That’s something that every woman should feel inspired by, no matter if you’re voting for her or not.”
The artist even raved about President Barack Obama‘s leadership, saying she was specifically impressed with the awareness he raised regarding the inconsistencies within the prison system, saying:
“I do want to speak about something specific, which just melted my heart. I thought it was so important when he went to prisons and spoke to people who got 20 and 30 and 40 and 50 years for drugs. There are women who are raped, people who are killed and [offenders] don’t even serve 20 years. I was blown away, watching the footage of him speaking to the prisoners. They never felt like anyone in the White House cared about them. I loved that he made them people again. Because we all make mistakes. I think about how many men may have made a mistake to feed their families and then had to pay for it forever.”
