Rihanna rather raunch it up at the All-Star game than get paid $500K by Donald Trump to sing at a charity.
Superstar singer Rihanna, who was booked for months to sing for Trump and others in Palm Beach at a gala at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday night, canceled that morning, claiming to have bronchitis, according to The Palm Beach Post’s Jose Lambiet.
But Rihanna was actually spending the weekend in Southern California, where she was pushing her new fragrance, Reb’l Fleur, at Macy’s and doing some full-throated singing as part of the half-time show at Sunday night’s NBA All-Star game.
How could this be? A week earlier, Pretend-President Trump had told CPAC he would lower oil prices by simply getting Middle Eastern oil producers on the phone and telling them, “That price better get lower, and it better get lower fast.”
I would think if he could control the price of Arab oil with the sound of his voice, he certainly could have restored respect to Mar-a-Lago by getting the foreign-born Rihanna on the phone Saturday morning and saying, “That bronchitis you don’t really have better get cured, and it better get cured fast.”
But now it looks like Trump is capable of getting pushed around by a 23-year-old female pop star from Barbados. “For Rihanna to go to the All-Star game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect,” Trump told Lambiet.
Yes, a lack of respect. Just the sort of thing President Trump was supposed to cure. The pretend-campaign is off to a bad start. For now, we can only imagine that a Trump-led America not only stands to get disrespected by OPEC, China and Mexico, but by Missy Elliott, Da Brat and Lil Kim.
SMH. Well he ended using Jennifer Hudson instead which sounds like a much better look for a charity event than scantily-clad Rihanna and her gyrating self.
