Donald Trump Vs. Rihanna?Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 5:00 pm.
Donald Trump would probably fire Rihanna… had she not completely bailed on a job she was supposed to do for him in the first place.
“The Donald” was “insulted” by Rih when she canceled a charity performance at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida, just hours before showtime. Rihanna’s people cited ”sickness” as the reason she bailed on the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute fundraiser that she was reportedly being paid $500,000 to perform for. (Side note: Shouldn’t that hefty pay check be used for the, umm, I don’t know, charity?).
Then, next thing know, the Good Girl Gone Bad star popped up at All-Star Weekend shaking it for basketball players, groupies, and everyone in between during half time. Um, excuse me, Rihanna! You didn’t look that sick to me at the All-Star Game. *side eye*
Trump was pretty pissed, although he noted he got Jennifer Hudson to fill in for the job, and said she’s a much better singer (gotta agree with him there, even if I still don’t trust anything he says because of that hair). Here’s what he 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.”
Careful, Ri: You don’t want a feud with The Donald!
