Pharrell Williams orders Donald Trump to stop playing his music at rallies

Pharrell Williams orders Donald Trump to stop playing his music at rallies Pharrell Williams orders Donald Trump to stop playing his music at rallies[/caption] American recording artist Pharrell Williams has ordered US President Donald Trump to stop playing his music at rallies after his hit song ‘Happy’ was played at a Trump event in Indiana just hours after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue. While they waited for Trump to take the stage, the crowd danced to a playlist of upbeat music, including “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. Now the ‘Get Lucky’ singer, is threatening to take legal action for the use of his song. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bo7BgaTBiRb/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link A letter from the R&B star’s lawyer Howard King reads, “Pharrell has not, and will not, grant you permission to publicly perform or otherwise broadcast or disseminate any of his music. 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.” Other musicians who have forbidden Trump to use their music include 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.”]]>
