We already knew that presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio was a huge 2Pac supporter when he was in law school, but recently, the White House hopeful let the world know what he’s been listening to lately.
"I’m still a Nicki Minaj fan,” he continued. "She’s very talented.”
When Rubio says he’s “still” a fan of Barbz, he’s actually responding to some backlash he received for talking about being a Nicki supporter back in 2011.
During an interview published by The Daily Caller in 2011, Rubio laughed when he was asked about the music in his iPod.
“I always get in trouble for talking about that,” he said at the time. “I actually have pretty diverse musical interest. So, you’ll find Coldplay, but you’ll also find Eminem. I got some attention last week for talking about Nicki Minaj and a guy from Miami, Pitbull, who’s an artist. I mean, look, I don’t let my kids listen to any of this stuff.”
His more recent acknowledgement of EDM comes after he walked offstage to Axwell and Ingrosso's "Something New" upon confirming his presidential bid. The move wasn't backed by the duo.
"Axwell and Ingrosso didn't give their permission for this song to be used and don't want to be affiliated with a particular party during the upcoming presidential race," they later told Business Insider.
We wonder what Nicki thinks.
