I mean, if Rihanna said it... No, seriously though, in a recent interview with Vogue, the "Umbrella" hitmaker made some very coherent points about the president.
Although Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry, it's unlikely that he will actually be removed from the oval office. Despite growing concerns about his irrational behavior and concerning political moves, it seems like impeaching a president is no easy task. Frankly, I don't think there's anything that anyone can do to stop this high-speed Trump-train from driving us all into financial and social ruin. Unless, you know, we voted in someone who isn't mentally unhinged. Heck, I'd sooner have Rihanna calling the shots.
And, you know, after hearing about what she said on the state of American politics, you might even agree with me.
"How deep you wanna get?"Vogue cover issue, if politics could be discussed, Rihanna was more than happy to talk shop.
Rihanna doesn't shy away from saying what she thinks.
Rihanna loves the U.S.Now thirty-three-years-old, Rihanna has almost lived in America for as long as she lived in her birthplace of Barbados. The singer has witnessed a lot of changes in the U.S. during this time and the presidency of Donald Trump has certainly not been one of the most favourable changes. She is now basing herself in London, something that doesn't keep her from dismissing American politics...
“I don’t feel outside the fray."Wherever Rihanna is in the world, she insists: "When I see something happen to any woman, a woman of any minority, kids, black men being murdered in the streets - I can’t remove myself from that." Rihanna considers herself a global citizen, and wherever human rights are being violated, she is going to speak up.
Since Trump's presidency, Rihanna has become more outspoken in her politics.
Rihanna turned down the Super Bowl half-time show to stand in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.
Donald Trump may have intervened on Colin Kaepernick signing with a team. Smh, why am i not suprised.— Leader Johnson (@Leader Johnson)1569859904.0
Justice for Kaepernick.During the NFL season in 2016, Kaepernick caused controversy by kneeling during the National Anthem. The quarterback was protesting against racial oppression and police brutality. Kaepernick, some three years on, is still a free agent after not being able to sign with an NFL team.
Political views shouldn't cost you your job.Critics and analysts have since made claims that NFL teams don't want to sign Kaepernick because he displayed his political beliefs so publically. There have been many rumors suggesting that President Trump's distaste for the player has had something to do with no team being willing to take him on.
"I just couldn’t be a sellout."When asked if her decision to not do the half-time show was anything to do with the Colin Kaepernick situation, Rihanna said: “Absolutely." The singer made it clear that she doesn't separate her professional work from her politics, stating: "I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler."
Calling out Jay Z?
Rihanna basically called Jay Z a bitch behind that NFL/Super Bowl halftime shit and I’m all the way here for it 😂😂😂— Harlo 🏳️🌈🇩🇴 (@Harlo 🏳️🌈🇩🇴)1570664124.0
