Asked about the dueling divas, the pop culture friendly leader predicted, “I think they are going to be able to sort it out.

“I am confident … I’m all about bringing people together for the same cause,” he said, predicting that “both outstanding artists are going to be able…. they’re moving forwards and not backward.”

The president said he’s met Mariah, calling her “a wonderful lady,” and as for Nicki, while he’s never met her, he’s got her music on his iPod.

Asked how he thinks HE would fare on American Idol, the president referred to his famous singing of Al Green‘s Let’s Stay Together before stating the oh-so obvious: “I’m gonna try to keep my day job.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Super Bass singer exploded on Mariah during the show’s auditions in North Carolina, when she declared, “I’m not f***ing putting up with her highness over there – figure it the f*** out, figure it out.”

The feud escalated after Minaj threatened to pull a gun on Mariah, as told to Barbara Walters by the Vision of Love singer, who said she had to beef up security after the bold statement.
