President Obama on Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey 'Idol' feud: 'I'm confident they'll sort it out'

The President of the United States of America has given his opinion on the leaked footage that shows 'American Idol' judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey embroiled in a heated argument.

Barack Obama was a guest on radio host Michael Yo's "The Yo Show" and explained that he's "confident" that the pair will be able to overcome the tension and rebuild their professional relationship:

"I think that they are going to be able to sort it out, I am confident. I'm all about bringing people together, working for the same cause, I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards."

When asked who he preferred out of the two superstars, Obama added: "Mariah, she's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick (Cannon), she's a wonderful lady. Nicki I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."

Obama recently spoke out about a track that features Nicki Minaj, entitled 'Mercy', in which the rap sensation makes a political reference to Mitt Romney and said that he didn't believe she was endorsing the republican because she plays different characters in her music: "She likes to play different characters. So I don't know what's going on there."
