Rihanna joins a long list of musicians who have protested Trump’s use of their music, including Neil Young, R.E.M., and Queen, but she has an advantage none of her predecessors could claim: She is not just a pop star and cosmetics mogul, she’s also the Barbadan ambassador at-large. So this isn’t just a dispute over music rights, but a burgeoning international diplomatic crisis. Somebody should show the president the video to “Bitch Better Have My Money” so he backs down, or before long we’ll be at war with the entire Caribbean.
Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip! https://t.co/dRgRi06GrJ
