“I’m very political…”
After gracing the cover and being named one of TIME 100 most influential people of the year, Nicki Minaj performed at the 2016 TIME 100 Gala last night. Minaj performed a number of her greatest hits including, “The Crying Game,” and “Feeling Myself,” but her performance of “Anaconda” raised a few eyebrows, but not for what you think.
Before beginning the song, the rapper dedicated the ode to big butts to presidential hopeful Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden. “I’m very political,” she told the crowd, “and I would like to dedicate a song, just in the spirit of unity, to Joe Biden and Donald Trump.”
When the song was over, the rapper asked the crowd, “Do you think they like that song? Who do you think likes the biggest butts, Donald Trump or Joe Biden?”
