President Barack Obama chimed in on the Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey American Idol saga in a recent interview with Miami's Y100, The Wrap reports. When asked about the rumored feud, Obama offered a message of peace. "I think that they are going to be able to sort it out, I am confident," he said. "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."

But Obama appeared to play slight favorites. "Mariah, she's actually done some events for us," he said. "Nicki I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
