Donald Trump says some nice words on behalf of singer Jennifer Hudson today, with a slight diva diss thrown super pop star Rihanna‘s way. Donald is a little snarky like that. But hey, many Americans still love him.
Antcomic reports: “Rihanna canceled her performance hours before she was to appear at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private club in Palm Beach. Rihanna reportedly was to be paid $500,000 to sing at a fund-raiser for the Boston-based Dana-Farber Cancer Institute but was replaced by Jennifer Hudson at the last minute.
“I thought that (Rihanna bailing) was insulting to everyone,” the maybe presidential candidate said. “But for Rihanna to go to the (NBA) All-Star game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect.
“But, 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.”
Hudson, the Oscar winning actress of Dreamgirls, and Trump must have hit it off. She dined with the billionaire, and about 400 members, Sunday night at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach and even sang a set with the house band.”
[Antcomic's original source, seems to have dropped the news story since, but as The Donald obviously needs the press and Hudson has such a good message in the above song, let's go with it! Thanks Rihanna! x].
Jennifer Hudson lyrics as penned by songwriting great, Dianne Warren, follow for inspiration for many nations of the world who can draw from this lady’s knowledge of a resilient spirit right now:
i was in the darkness
i was out in the cold
seemed nothing could heal this
this hole in my soul
you reached out your arms to me
held out your heart to me
pulled me back from the edge
thought i reached the end.
