Nicki Minaj Raps for Romney?
Actor-director Clint Eastwood might have some celebrity company this week with his allegiance to Mitt Romney.
Rapper Nicki Minaj appears to endorse Romney's presidential bid in a new rap song out this week.
Minaj recorded the verse in a guest appearance on the track "Mercy" on fellow rapper Lil Wayne's mix tape "Dedication 4," which was released online Monday.
"I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy [expletive] is [expletive] up the economy," Minaj says.
Born Onika Tanya Maraj in Trinidad and Tobago, the multi-racial, hip-hop star was raised in New York City and attended LaGuardia High School for music and the arts.
Her representatives did not respond to numerous ABC News requests for comment about what the lyrics mean or whether Minaj is registered to vote in the United States.
Minaj, 29, took to Twitter earlier this year, venting to the official @BarackObama campaign account about the lack of universal health care after "Moesha" actress Yvette Wilson died of cervical cancer.
"What's sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov't was probably taking millions. On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound," she wrote. "That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @BarackObama what can we do?"
Rapper Talib Kweli chalked up Minaj's latest political comments as a public relations stunt.
"I doubt Nicki seriously supports Romney," he tweeted. "Her lyrics ain't political. She just wants y'all to talk about her & she winning cuz it's working."
