Born Robert Ritchie, Kid Rock told the raucous crowd gathered at Oakland University that he believes “you have to stand for something” even if it may alienate a few fans.

The most recent superstar to make headlines for her presumed Republican support is none other than Nicki Minaj. The Harajuku Barbie recently caused a stir after the release of Lil Wayne’s “Mercy,” in which she raps: “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy b—-es is f—ing up the economy.”
