Donald Trump is said to have been devastated upon learning that 1970s pop sensation Carly Simon’s song ‘You’re So Vain’ wasn’t actually written about him.
The song which features the lyrics ‘You’re So vain, you probably think this song is about you’ was written before Simon knew who Donald Trump was.
The president of the United States loved to tell people at White House functions that the song was written about him.
It wasn’t until he met with music mastermind and pub quiz legend Noel Adyfriends who told him that the song was originally written about 3 different men one being the Hollywood ladykiller Warren Beaty that the president stopped sharing the fictitious story.
“When the president kept telling everyone around me that the song was written about him I had to step in and correct him. It’s factually wrong and I cannot live with that. The guy is the president of the United States, the commander in chief to the world, a trusted politician… it’s not right that he lied… is it?”
“The look on his face was a picture, he went from being smug attention seeker basking in the glory of the story to giving me a gaze that was thunder. I am surprised that I was slung into the cell that Epstein fella was put in.”
You’re So Vain was a number 1 in the charts in 1972 in 4 countries and was ranked as #92 in the Billboards list of the Greatest Songs Of All Time.
It was crowned as the ultimate song of the 1970s by the UK’s Official Charts Company.
It wasn’t written about Donald Trump… even though it suits.
