Report: Pop Enthusiasts Support Nicki Minaj ‘White House Invite’

Published: Saturday 16th Jun 2012 by David

Two days ago, the death of ‘Moesha’ star Yvette Wilson struck up the ever heated topic of ‘US healthcare’.

For, before her untimely death, Wilson had been forced to call on the general public to help pay for medical expenses, believed to have amounted to $25,000.

Moved by the tragedy, Twitter saw Pop mogul Nicki Minaj weigh in on the matter and call on President Obama to make the necessary changes to ensure tax paying citizens received help from the State if ever in Wilson’s position.

Hours later, Quest of ‘The Roots responded to Minaj’s tweets, informing her that The White House would be interested in working with her to raise health care awareness.

Now, the world of Pop has weighed in on his claim.

Full story below…

Striking up debate the world over, Minaj’s unconfirmed invite prompted the following from various forums across the net:

Korean Dream:

She seems passionate about the issue and she’s not stupid so I can’t see any reason for her not to debate the issue

Woozy Floozy:

That’s awesome, but I really hope that she knows all her sh*t if she’s going to debate. I don’t want her to get destroyed by some Republican that can talk circles around her. 

Willy:

I just think the White House wants her to raise awareness with the issue in conjunction to Nicki tweeting about it and letting people know that Obama can make the change.

Kissy_Minaj:

In Trinidad where Nicki was born, we receive free health care. Maybe this issue will force the US Gov’t to care more about its citizens and offer free health care to ALL.

Beyonce’s Weave:

Hats off to Nicki for her political stance on some things. Having said that, I feel Nicki is hypocritical on a lot of things.

She is a platinum selling artist, I’m certain she had the money to pay for the medication. The big question is “why didn’t she”? Instead of spamming the Obama twitter page, Ms Minaj would have simply put on a benefit concert to raise money if she didn’t want to pay out of pocket.

YSL:

Yesterday when I mentioned that she had enough pull to meet with the President, her stans doubted it. But now everyone is happy and pretending like it wasn’t just yesterday they were doubting what her celebrity status could do.

Good on her though, she better take the opportunity or else she’s all talk and no action and will look like a fool in the end.

Callum:

i hope she prepares properly to actually give an educated argument for her case. she’s in a position where her celebrity status could have some real-world influence now so this could be a big opportunity.

Reed:

Nicki better make her way up the political ladder  If she continues advocating what she did last night, her fans will follow suit and her tweets won’t just be considered ‘rants’ by the outsider.

It’s important to note that the administration is yet to confirm the invite, and that Questo‘s comments are- despite his close ties to President Obama- were merely a recommendation.

However, with the White House opening its doors to the likes of Lady GaGa and Alicia Keys in the past, would you support Nicki if she was to join the healthcare debate.

    Nicki clearly has a brain. How else can a basic broad from Queens come in the game and dominate so fast? She knew she needed A$$ Implants, Lil kim’s style and music that had crossover appeal. The woman is very smart obviously.

    • Lea June 16, 2012

      Or fans are just really dumb.

  2. Nahjee June 16, 2012

    Nicki Minaj just my be the first female rapper in the white house lol

    That will really make lil Kim mad

    • YouSTUPIDHOE June 16, 2012

      GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT: QUEEN LATIFAH WAS THE FIRST FEMALE RAPPER IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

      You kids these days… brainless and no sense of history. F****** IDIOTS BARBQ B******!

    • Layla June 16, 2012

      They haven’t approved of it yet.

  3. NavyWinsYouLooze June 16, 2012

    She’s a smart girl and she has my support.
    Oh wait did you say Nicki Minaj?
    Oh then she can f*** right off! She only tweeted for attention so she can be like GaGa with the gay civil rights debate.

    Give it up oNOga, you will never be gaga and you most certainly will NEVER be rihanna.
    your not even kim.

    • NaturalBeauty June 16, 2012

      Chile boo, Gaga isn’t the first or last artist to speak on political issues. Try Cher & Cyndi Lauper hun, you are so ignorant it’s sad but look who you stan for. I wouldn’t expect you to do your research, you’re a Rihanna stan.

    • ImMadAsHell June 17, 2012

      I thought she was doing this to get her sells up. this just another stunt.

  4. NICOLAS MINAJ June 16, 2012

    I’M all for HEALTH CARE. And If it’s Nicki advocating?! I’m even more for it. This is a great look for her. And even better for the less unfortunate people that has to endure not having free Health Care, 1STEP CLOSER Go NICKI!

  5. Honestly Speaking June 16, 2012

    I see TGJ is now in the business of deleting comments. I made my opinion on this subject very clear in the previous post. This is a deceptive, lying ass post made to support Onika and her foolishness for some reason. TGJ is just stuck up this woman’s wigged ass.

    • Honestly Speaking June 16, 2012

      And LOL @ them using comments from other regulars of this site to support the idea that “Pop enthusiasts” are supporting this mess. Onika is nothing but a flop Lil Kim wannabe with a flop site like TGJ supporting her mess.

      • Kissy_Minaj June 16, 2012

        We pop enthusiasts are the ones who have a say remember, we are the ones who buy records, vote etc. I think TGJ has the right forum here. What we say here do matter.

      • SLAYFANISTANN June 16, 2012

        Actually,he got those from ATRL

  6. YouDontKnowMe June 16, 2012

    Really? This is not a battle between who is the best pop star or a situation to bring down nicki to build up your fav pop star. This is a serious issue that affects us all so grow the f** up. I do support Nicki on this. She is a very smart woman and Im sure she would do well.

  7. Nick June 16, 2012

    nicki would be stupid if she didn’t take this offer. it could help her sell some records.

  8. Kingphoenix June 16, 2012

    You call this journalism @TGJ? Keep it up and you will loose viewers, there are many other great sites around that don’t pull half the stunts and shows you do and i am getting ready to visit them regularly and stop visiting yours.

    • Honestly Speaking June 16, 2012

      Not only that but their first post about this subject was deceptive as well considering that this woman never even received an invite to the White House and probably won’t be in the near future anyway. How is this journalism or even PROFESSIONALISM when they’re constantly making up lies and false stories for blog hits/traffic? it’s madness and they WILL be losing viewership/followers if they keep this mess up.

      • Kingphoenix June 16, 2012

        Exactly, just the other day, they had to delete a post in which they claimed that Diplo was making remarks in regards to Beyonce’s fifth album, when many commentors had to tell the staff that Beyonce’s name wasn’t even mentioned in the interview. They are getting very sloppy, and are gaining a bad reputation. Sam must be taking advice from Fred over there at Mediatakeout.com lol.

    • Kissy_Minaj June 16, 2012

      Wow u Kim stans are really mad at this possibility huh, so mad that u are now going in on Sam. I bet your asses would be smiling from ear to ear and secretly thanking Nicki for your free health care if something like this were to ever come to fruition.

  9. FLOPONCÉ June 16, 2012

    DEATH @ BEYONCÉ’S WEAVE LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    …Beyoncé is a flop

  10. TAY June 16, 2012

    NICKI COULD HAVE PAID FOR IT YES. BUT THEIR ARE OTHER PPL OUT THEIR THAT ARE GOING THRU THE SAME THING SHE CAN’T PAY FOR EVERYONE. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SOME TIME. THIS NEEDED TO BE BROUGHT THE THE LEADER OF OUR NATION. ITS GOING TO TAKE PPL TO SPEAK OUT ABOUT IT. STOP HATING AND SAYING SHE’S A FAKE FOR THIS. AT THE END OF THE DAY WE ARE THE ONE’S WHO NEED IT SHE’S SPEAKING FOR US WE DON’T HAVE A POWERFUL OR POPULAR VOICE LIKE SHE DOES TO WHERE PPL ARE GOING TO PAY ATTN. SHE CAN PAY FOR HER HEALTHCARE, SO SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO SPEAK OUT ON IT. BUT SHE DID BCUZ A LOT OF US CAN’T PAY.

  11. edubb June 16, 2012

    I would’ve RESPECTED NICKI IF SHE WAS ADVOCATING THE TISHA, SHARON, NAOMI’S OF THE WORLD THAT IS REALLY STRUGGLING WITH HEALTHCARE, BUT SHE USES A COMIC/ACTRESS WHO HAD 3 T..V SHOWS & COUNTLESS MOVIES WHO DIED BECAUSE SHE COULDN’T AFFORD TO PAY HER BILLS to ADOVOCATE FOR?!!… NICKI PLEASE!… THE MEDIA WOULD EAT HER ALIVE… THIS A FUTURE P.R NIGHTMARE IF SHE GOES ON CNN WITH THIS( THEY ARE LIBERAL), NICKI STAY IN YOUR LANE!

    • ImMadAsHell June 17, 2012

      I still think this another stunt to bring up her album sells.

  12. MonsterHive June 16, 2012

    Gaga spoke on gay rights, Nicki is gonna speak on health care, those are 2 completely different topics. So if you think Nicki is doing it just so she can be more like Gaga you’re certainly delusional. Cyndi Lauper was the poster child for gay rights, she spoke in front of congress & was a political figure in the gay community. Does that mean Gaga is trying to copy Cyndi? I hope Nicki takes the offer cause this is an issue that we as Americans have to deal with, it should concern us all. This is much bigger than Lil Kim or your taste in music. The fact that someone is willing to speak on an issue that has hindered millions from being healthy due to their financial situation is good enough for me.

  13. RedDead June 16, 2012

    I’m puzzled by the fact that Free Healthcare is seen as a good thing. Just because it’s free does not make it adequate. When Rich people around the world are stricken with some illness they come to the US for treatment. Medical Treatment is very expensive at times but it’s not the responsibility of others to make sure you live. As for Nicki I liked her 1st album but then she turned Pop and I stopped listening. I wish her well but she’s getting publicity for everything but her Music and in the end this will only hurt her sales.

  14. BLACK MADONNA June 16, 2012

    IS THIS REALLY AN ARTICLE?.. RANDOM TWITTER COMMENTS?

  15. Tru Voice June 16, 2012

    Good for Nicki. Let her go and state her case. I just want her to be prepared for criticism from White America.

  16. YouSTUPIDHOE June 16, 2012

    NICKI – now you are an advocate for healthcare? Coming from a B**** WHO DOESNT CARE ABOUT S*** BUT ASS INJECTIONS. GTFOH!!!!
    ITS ALL PUBLICITY FOR THIS STUPID H**. ASK HER WHEN THE LAST TIME SHE READ UP ON HEALTHCARE POLICIES.
    STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW B****… HEALTHCARE AND YOU WAS SLANGING CRACKIN QUEENS. STUPID HO.

  17. Jayla June 16, 2012

    U h*** need a life, I swear yall click on every post and comment more than her fans, that’s why sam keeps making posts about her and rihanna, He knows u f*** can’t resist the chance to bash these WOMEN

    • Kissy_Minaj June 16, 2012

      Totally agree with u, they fall for it everytime. And yet they keep coming.

  18. POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 16, 2012

    Pop enthusiasts 😯 ? 😆 just a f*****’ LOL.

  19. Roman June 16, 2012

    Nicki has always maintained a strong political view all u hating f****. Just bcos she raps crazy and where’s colourful outfits she’s dumb? Yal need to sit. Nicki is a smart business woman if u haven’t noticed all the endorsement and that 360 contract she secured as a BREAK OUT ARTIST. F*** outta here yal just mad Kim stans

  20. QueenSize June 16, 2012

    Nicki is not ready to battle on healthcare reform. This is not gay rights. This is not African American rights or women’s right. Healthcare is a whole other level that Barbie B**** can’t handle. Political people will eat her alive and then everybody else will take the leftovers. Stay in your pop lane princess.

  21. SLAYFANISTANN June 16, 2012

    I see Sam has been lurking on ATRL.I even see the :duca: smiley.
