The OTHER Fact Checking: Nicki Minaj NOT Registered To Vote? + DNC's 1st Day Ratings BEAT RNC's Entire 3 Days
Nicki Minaj shocked fans when she gave Mitt Romney a shout-out of support & called others "lazy b*tches", but now it's been revealed she's not registered to vote herself! Get deets inside and find out about the DNC beating the RNC in ratings.......
We told you earlier about Nicki Minaj recently rapping "I’m a Republican votin' for Mitt Romney/You lazy b-----s is f---ing up the economy" on Lil' Wayne's Dedication 4 mixtape.
In addition to annoyed fans (who were offended by the "lazy b*tches" comment just because they weren't voting for Romney), pundits like RealClearPolitics senior elections analyst Sean Trende added, "There is about a .00000001 percent chance Nikki Minaj was not mocking Romney voters and is actually endorsing Romney."
We don't believe Nicki is voting for Romney. Or even voting at all for that matter. The Washington Post has revealed that according to the voter rolls, Onika is not registered to vote in any of the states where she claimed residency in the last few years (NY, CA, GA). WOMP.
No one said she had to be a spokesperson for voting (opinions on whether all celebs should be though is a separate issue). But when you make a public controversial comment about voting (likely just to garner attention), and at the same time insult others who are likely registered, you have to expect people to call you on it. Not every rapper is meant to be believable these days.
And as for reports that Obama supporters and Democrats simply are not interested this election....we're calling B.S. on that too.
The number of tweets per second sent just during Day 1 of the DNC yesterday actually beat the RNC's entire 3 day span, according to reports. There were more than 28,003 tweets per minute during Michelle Obama's speech, which is double the tweets-per-minute mark set by Mitt Romney.
This could likely be a factor as Twitter ratings COULD matter in this election, due to the demographic that participates in that form of news/media.
Get registered. T minus 61 days till the election.
