Grammy award-winning artist Rihanna doesn’t do many interviews these days, which means she should have left this one in the box, but she had to say something to get clicks, likes or retweets to make herself feel better.
During her interview with Vogue, as she spoke about entrepreneur talk about her new album and why, even though her mentor Jay-Z has made a pact with the NFL, and why she’d never headline the Super Bowl, she responded to a question about Pres. Trump.
What these interviewers try to do today is interview major stars and gauge whether or not they support Pres. Trump, and if they do, they are shunned and blackballed from the industry. Some don’t care while the majority have to protect their jobs.

he went in even harder when the topic of President Trump was raised, criticizing his responses to the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings earlier this year. While Trump called the shootings an act of “cowardice,” Rihanna tweeted that he should have labeled them “terrorism” instead.
“It is devastating,” said Rihanna. “People are being murdered by war weapons that they legally purchase. This is just not normal. That should never, ever be normal. And the fact that it’s classified as something different because of the color of their skin? It’s a slap in the face. It’s completely racist. Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem.
“The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president,” she concluded. [The Independent]
She doesn’t know what she’s talking about, “war weapons”? A person with an AR15 would be dead in minutes after stepping on a battlefield. A SEMI automatic rifle is NOT a machine gun, can someone who knows her please explain the difference?

A semi-automatic weapon requires one pull of the trigger for each round fired. A machine gun, by contrast, requires only one pull of the trigger to fire dozens of rounds. A machine gun uses the recoil to expels the used cartridge and fires another round, while a semi-automatic weapon only expels the used round and requires the person to pull the trigger again to fire another round.
Also, you might want to point out that technically muskets are “weapons of war” since they were used in wars before we had modern weaponry.
If anyone feels or thinks America is a bad place, you are free to leave, and those immigrants who think America is a great place flood here. Rihanna has made millions of America. Could she have done that in Barbados?
Bottom line. Rihanna is not important enough to make a dent in the average American decision making.
