Pharrell Bars Trump From Playing His Songs At Rallies



Pharrell joins Adele, Neil Young, the Rolling Stones and Queen. REM’s Michael Stipe said in 2015: “Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”

According to the Guardeian Magazine, after Pharrell William’s hit song “Happy” was played at an event just hours after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in Indiana, he ordered Donald Trump to stop playing his music at rallies. According to reports, “Pharrell has not, and will not, grant you permission to publicly perform or otherwise broadcast or disseminate any of his music,” reads the letter from the R&B star’s lawyer Howard King.

“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist’, you played his song Happy to a crowd at a political event in Indiana,” the letter continues. “There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose.”

The President was further criticized for making jokes about a “bad hair day” in the immediate wake of the shooting. At the Indiana rally, however, he forcefully condemned the attack, calling it “an antisemitic act” and adding: “We just don’t seem to learn from the past.”
