Donald Trump Disses Rihanna!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteJennifer HudsonDonald Trump

Rihanna Not Hearing The Hate Trump

So Rihanna was paid by Donald Trump to perform at his Mar-a-Lago private club in in Palm Beach.

She was paid $500,000 but had to cancel at the last minute because she was feeling under the weather, so she was replaced with the beautiful and fab Jennifer Hudson.

Trump's super pissed, though, because RiRi then went through with her performance at the NBA All-Star game!

He said:

“I thought that (Rihanna bailing) was insulting to everyone. 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.”


But that's how things work, Trumpy! Maybe she had to rest her voice for the upcoming NBA game because it was way more important in terms of scale??


We're sure she didn't mean it as a personal jab!!

Rihanna, don't pay attention to the hate!

    if it was so important maybe she should have not agreed to the Trump show. What she did was tacky…

  2. 2

    Lol he's telling the truth.. her voice is SO MUCH better. I like Rihanna though.. have nothing against her (:

  3. 3

    If it were priorities she shouldn't have taken the job in the first place…..perhaps she was resting her voice but it was still kinda rude to do the NBA show.

  4. 4

    I'd see him get pissed off it was double booked but it's not. Suck it up Trump

  5. 5

    oh wow HOW EMBARRASSING Rihanna!!!! J Hud DOES sing better though.

  6. 6

    I love Rihanna but it definitely was not in good taste.

  7. 7

    Trump's "job" was for a charity event, which she was getting paid for. So not more important — unless in terms of viewership.

    JHud is, and always has been, a beautiful woman with an amazing voice. Someone I'd rather listen to over Rhianna anyday.

  8. 8

    Trump aught to shut up. Doesn't he realize how lucky he is that Rhianna backed out and he got the fabulous Miss Hudson??? Seriously!

  9. Blunt says – reply to this


    Lmao he's right perez, jhud is a SINGER, rhianna can barely carry a note. Leave it to white ppl to think rhianna can sing rofl.

  10. 10

    Yes, I must admit it was very unprofessional of Rihanna to handel the job the way she did. However, Trump should not have booked Rihanna for such a classy event any way. Jennifer Hudson should have been first choice. One thing he did not lie about is Jhud voice is ten times better than Rihanna. Jen is a true vocalist. One of the best of our time. Rihanna is an entertainer and thats about it.

  11. 11

    Hudson does have a better voice though … and more talent Perez. It's not hate … it's the TRUTH.

  12. 12

    But she can't sing. She's only famous for her wigs and clothes and that she got bitch-slapped by Chris Brown, that's all. Snooki sings as good as she does but she hasn't resorted to wearing wigs, at least not yet. Geez.

  13. 13

    Very tacky and unprofessional of Rihanna.

  14. 14

    I'm sure if this had happened with someone you DIDN'T like, you would be on Trump's side and whatnot. JHud is amazing and absolutely gorgeous!

  15. 15

    JHud is MUCH better than Rihanna. She doesn't rely on computers to make her sound good either.

  16. 16

    anyone else you would say they are being unprofessional smh. Rihanna is a spoiled, overrated star. For once i agree with Trump.

  17. 17

    ummmmm IT'S THE TRUTH. i'd be pissed too, and rihanna's a snobby bitch anyway…and DUH, jennifer hudson can sing. like 50x better.

  18. 18

    If Jennifer Hudson is such a great voice and talent how come she has no recording success other than her movie, Dreamgirls. Jennifer Hudson is the same type of voice that every black woman singer has, there is nothing special or unique about it……Rihanna may not have the range but she is definitely more fun to watch

  19. 19

    Trump was willing to pay $500,000 to have Rihanna perform. She maybe worth $50.00 over rated and really hyped up. A fool and his money are soon separated.

  20. 20

    He's right. Jennifer has a much better voice. Rihanna has no class. She's tacky and overrated.

  21. 21

    Not to mention that Jennifer Hudson is an Oscar winner and a winner in life overall that had a big tragedy happen to her family. And she also wasn't some Bimbo that Jay-Z picked out to be a "big star" , that in actuality has NO TALENT.

  22. 22

    he's right

  23. 23

    Re: ShoeWhore
    True. She got slapped like the ho she is because she gave Chris the Herp.
    F*** the All-Star game this year.
    I stopped watching after they kept licking JBeaver's hairless ass.

  24. 24

    All of Trump's points are valid. He speaks especially to the point that Perez brings up, maybe she was saving herself for the NBA because it was way more important in scale. If that is the case, then that is a lack of respect as he speculates. As a performer, all chances to perform for fans are important. The minute you don't think so or start making choices based on what you feel is getter for your career, your ego is in the way, and will be the beginning of your downfall. And no question, Rihanna is the bigger star, but no question JHud has a WAY better voice.

  25. 25

    He is right - she cannot sing nor can Katy Perry …if they didn't have all the studio back up/auto tune they would be nothing!

  26. 26

    Jennifer Hudson is a step WAY UP from Rihanna. I never understood how she could go from abused woman to scantilly attired diva. Jennifer Hudson has real staying power.

    Jennifer….you are lovely and a great inspiration to young women!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. 27

    Rihanna sucks, her singles are terrible.

  28. kaya says – reply to this


    "Priorities?" What about 'obligations,' hmmm?

  29. 29

    I have to agree with Donald Trump. It's wishy washy. She should have never cancelled, but just pushed through it. If she was that sick, Rihanna wouldn't have shown up at all.

  30. rcs says – reply to this


    Trump is spot on with this.

  31. 31

    i'd rather see jhud anyway

  32. 32

    haha, I saw this and I thought, Donald Trump would be a great american idol judge. haha .

  33. esj says – reply to this


    Again, Perez your such a dumbass. Obviously you don't know what true professionalism is. No matter how big a performer you are, you can't just pretend to be sick to a previous commitment and then perform in a "bigger" event. You Perez are really screwed up - our views are skewed. But then, how can you expect values such as professionalism from somebody like you when most of your posts lately are rehash from other blogs from a day or two ago.

  34. 34

    Rihanna's 15 minutes are almost over. How can you tell? She is resorting to less and less clothing to get attention. Jennifer Hudson is just getting started. I bet you will be hearing her name for years to come and Rihanna will be known as that chick that sang Umbrella.

  35. 35

    You know, I can't believe there's even room for debate about this. The NBA or a charity event THAT BENEFITS THE HUMAN RACE. Fucking people make me sick

  36. 36

    Re: Blunt – WHITE PEOPLE? I DON'T KNOW ONE FUCKING WHITE PERSON THAT THINK SHE HAS ANY FUCKING TALENT. All the white people I know said Jennifer Hudson was the better choice and Trump lucked out with her. PEOPLE LIKE YOU IS WHY RACISM STILL EXIST YOU P.O.S.

  37. 37

    Re: mattyesmateo – You just answered your own question. Rihanna is just an image in the public's eye. Jennifer Hudson doesn't get that attention because she focuses on her singing ability. And you are that stupid that you can sit there and compare the two, AND STILL QUESTION JENNIFER HUDSON'S VOICE COMPARED TO RIHANNA'S, YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER FOLLOWER. You have the class of the rest of the herd.

  38. 38

    jennifer hudson a better singer? yeah right. sorry trump but rihanna totally beats her. jennifer hudson can't sing at all. people are crazy to think jennifer can sing yall must be deaf. lol time to get your ears checked to know what good music is. rihanna totally owns the music industry right along with lady gaga. gaga and riri are 2 very powerful women in the music industry right now. they just keep topping the charts all the way too the top. and what is jennifer doing right now? losing weight? haha i think so…..

  39. 39

    Re: white_is_ugly – Just because people sell more does not mean they are better.90 percent of all the artist that arent mainstream are 100 times better than the mainstream artist.

  40. 40

    Trump is such a rude person. If JHud is so much better than Rihanna (I know she is), then why didn't he book her in the first place? I think he's trying to save face with this harsh of a comment.

  41. 41

    …jennifers voice is 10x better, especially live. riri should lipsync more haha

  42. exBFF says – reply to this


    She doesn't have the talent to make up for her unprofessionalism. Sorry, sweetie. She's become a novelty act. There's no coming back from that. She's ovah!

  43. 43

    I would so happily give a grand to never have to hear Rhianna again, well that's if I only had a grand to my name and a promise from a doctor that If I didn't spend it on an operation id have prostate cancer so bad it'd feel like nonstop anal rape

  44. 44


  45. 45

    for some reason I find it hard to believe Donald Trump really paid $500,000 that sounds sketchy

  46. 46

    uuuhh..You forgot that it was a charity event for cancer… Soo tacky of her.

  47. 47

    Trump is right, Hudson is a million times better than Sideshow Bob. Who wants to hear this idiot repeat the same words over and over for 5 min. Oh na na, what's my name. An overated talentless gimmick who results to posing in body suits to sell records. If anyone thinks Rihanna can sing, they need to get their meds switched, Not only is her single bad, but she's boring, tragically boring. She is riding the freak train all the way, and she probably was prowling at the allstar game looking for the next victim.

  48. 48

    She choosed the NBA… over a charity place to fund money for people with illness and needs.
    That pretty much describes who she really is.

  49. Aries says – reply to this


    He's absolutely right on all counts.

  50. 50

    Maybe you should remove your head from Rihanna's arse long enough to realize how tacky, ignorant and UTTERLY DISRESPECTFUL that was of her.

  51. 51

    I am in complete agreement with Patty Boots. Besides how can you compare the talent of Jennifer Hudson with the bubble gum crap RiRi sings, come on now? Donald Trump won this one, he didn't lose out on anything. I say say huge UPGRADE for him! =-)

  52. 52

    You're leaving out one very important detail…. this "event" was a cancer benefit. Talk about tacky. Interesting how you leave this information out when you're covering celebs you like.

  53. 53

    He pissed cause she lied. She said she was going to rest but she was court side at a basketball game then partying later that night. Come on

  54. 54

    Hold on a minute.
    Mar-a-Lago is down in Florida. If RiRi were feeling sick, might she be wise to decline hopping on an airplane and flying down there?
    Also, where was the NBA event held? Was it the same place, or closer to home?

    I won't blame anyone for refusing to jump on an airplane. It's just too much hassle.

  55. 55

    Fuck NANA, she makes me sick anyway!! Too much of her all over, its sickening…she needs to be knocked down a few fukin pegs….GRRRRR

  56. 56

    rihanna totally dised trump ass if she was under the weather then could go to the fucking game pshaw pshaw i say

  57. 57

    She is a diva , very unprofessional.

  58. 58

    He's so immature and such a prick. Jennifer has a better voice? Oh yeah that's why Rihanna was your first choice.. nonsense.

  59. 59

    Phew! Thank God it was J Hud instead. I'd rather listen to her any day!

  60. 60

    I also think he lucked out in getting jennifer hudson. that girl can SING!

  61. 61

    Rihanna is a trash bag! Jennifer is a lovely, talented young woman who wouldn't DREAM of fingering herself on stage—with the television cameras rolling!!! Appalling behavior from the despicable Rihanna!!!

  62. 62

    Toddlers & Tiaras…….With all the child molesters out there, what kind of parents put these kids through this???? (Money)They say it's the kids idea??? NOPE!!!! WTF they all look like little Tammy Faye Bakers…..RIDICULOUS

  63. 63

    Re: hijinxie

    Agree…. Cancer charity is way more important than a dumb ass basketball game!!!

  64. 64

    I don't blame her for bailing on Trump — he's so creepy.

    eeew that guy makes my skin crawl.

  65. 65

    Re: scotsalothilton – what ??? Please tell me you are exagerrating (I know its misspelled). I missed that lil piece of "entertainment"!!
