This is a message that will be very difficult to digest for supporters of US President Donald Trump. According to our Times Magazine colleague, singer Rihanna posted a message on Twitter where she warned the current US president that she did not want her hits to be played at Republican party meetings.
If we stick to the tweet of a Washington Post reporter, Philip Rucker, Rihanna's songs were played during the campaign for last week's election:
"It has been said to be millions of times, but it will be said a million and once: Trump rally doesn't look like anything else in politics. Right now, Rihanna's" Don't Stop the Music "is heard in Chattanooga as a volunteer throwing a free Trump shirt to crowd, like during sports matches. Everyone likes it, "he tweeted.
A few minutes after reading this tweet from Philip Rucker, native Barbados reacted:
"Longer …" he tweeted. "Both me and my" people "(translated in this context by & # 39; my fans & # 39; or & # 39; my friend & # 39; red) will go to one of these tragic meetings. Thank you already told me, Philip! "
It must be said that Rihanna was very opposed to Donald Trump's republican politics. He has also introduced his name to the list of artists who are increasingly refusing to get their hits played at the meeting of the President of the United States. A few days earlier, Pharrell Williams had threatened Trump with lawsuits for the same reason. Axel Rose also requested that the Guns N & Roses songs not be displayed at these meetings.
Although this rejection is openly voiced by some people, Trump can rely on supporting singers such as 50 cents and Kanye West.
