Obama Comments On Mariah Carey And Nicki Minaj's AI Drama.

The quarrel between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj was bad enough it drew the attention of President Obama.  
During a recent call on "The Yo! Show," the president was asked about the "Idol" drama between Minaj and Carey.  And he states "You know what, I think that they are going to be able to sort it out. I'm confident," Obama told the show's host, Michael Yo. "I'm all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. So, I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards."  
Obama also neatly avoided taking a side in the disagreement when asked if he had a favorite out of the pair. "Mariah, she's actually done some events for us, and I've gotten to know her and husband - Nick Cannon and she's a wonderful lady," he said, while adding, "Nicki I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."  
Since he pays attention to it, how does he think he'd fare on "Idol"? Well, the president responded, "You've heard me sing some Al Green, I'm going to try to keep my day job."
