Gotta love famous rich peoples passive aggressive attacks and responses. I guess RiRi bailed on a charity performance that Mr. Trump organized to go party it up at all star weekend and he was none to pleased. Jennifer Hudson replaced Rihanna but The Donald told The Palm Beach Post:
- “I thought that (Rihanna bailing) was insulting to everyone, but 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[...]Nothing was missed. Jennifer’s a beautiful girl. She came on her day off even though she performs almost every night. She is an unbelievable talent, and her voice is better.“
I understand where The Donald is coming from, but RiRi is the silver surfer of the #SlutWave and their was too much notable penis in LA for her to pass on.
A rep for Rihanna then released this statement to Access Hollywood:
- “Rihanna was recovering [from] bronchitis and her doctor advised her not to get on a plane as she would risk losing her voice and damaging her vocal chords[...]She feels terrible she couldn’t attend but was so grateful Jennifer Hudson graciously stepped in.”
