Russian "pop star" sings about Trump collusion lol

A player in the various investigations — Russian pop music star Emin Agalarov, who helped arrange an infamous meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower in 2016 — has put out a music video jokingly portraying himself as involved in all sorts of shady activities connected to American politics.

The video, flagged by CNN’s Hunter Schwarz on Twitter, features Emin carousing with impersonators of Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Hillary Clinton, and even Stormy Daniels. Emin hands over mysterious briefcases and envelopes, as he repeatedly sings “You got me so good, you really got me so good.” Here’s the video.


Who is Emin Agalarov, and why is he doing this?

Emin and his wealthy developer father, Aras Agalarov, worked with Trump to host the Miss Universe pageant in Russia several years back. They spent time with Trump during his short trip to Moscow for the pageant in November 2013 — a trip that has been the subject of endless intrigue and conspiracy theorizing in recent years.

The Agalarovs took Trump out on the town for various events during the trip, and Trump also made time to shoot a cameo for one of Emin’s music videos. Trump was very grateful and sounded keenly interested in working with them on future Russia-based business deals, including a Moscow Trump Tower. According to Michael Isikoff and David Corn’s book Russian Roulette, Emin’s sister showed up to Trump Tower soon afterward “bearing a gift for Trump” — a box with a sealed letter from Putin.

Fast-forward to the presidential campaign. In June 2016, Emin had his publicist, Rob Goldstone, contact Donald Trump Jr. with a message from his father Aras. The “Crown prosecutor of Russia” had some information that could “incriminate” Hillary Clinton, Goldstone wrote in an email. “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump — helped along by Aras and Emin,” Goldstone continued.

Don Jr. responded enthusiastically (“If it’s what you say I love it”), called Emin to chat, and they arranged the now-notorious meeting with a Russian delegation at Trump Tower for a few days later.

When Don Jr.’s meeting became known last summer (confirmed in emails he himself released), it seemed to quite clearly show Trump’s team willing to accept campaign help from the Russian government. However, all parties involved claimed, and continue to claim, that the meeting ended up being a dud and let nowhere.

Emin didn’t seem particularly bothered by the development. Documents later released by the Senate Judiciary Committee show Goldstone texting Emin in a panic, worrying about his own reputation being destroyed because he was being painted as “some mysterious link to Putin.” Emin responded: “That should give you mega PR,” with a wide-eyed, eyebrows-raised emoji face.

Now, it’s Emin himself who appears to want “mega PR,” with this new video positively embracing (humorously) his starring role in the collusion investigation. After all, he lives in Russia so he isn’t in any legal danger from Robert Mueller’s probe.

"Star" my ass... He wouldn't even have got famous, if not for his daddy's money and connections...

And they are well connected, for sure, in Russia and back in Azerbaijan too.

Emin even used to be married to Leyla Alieva, the beloved daughter of Azerbaijan's dictator, Ilham Aliev

They are divorced now, and he's running around with some Russian model these days, but he and Layla remain on perfectly good terms, far as I know.

They have two kids together

With former daddy in law too

Meanwhile, Aras Agalarov is one of Putin's pet oligarchs too

The Agalarovs are into construction mostly, but other things too, all kinds of things.

In 2016, for example, they launched two own entertainment TV channels in Moscow

At launch event with Ukrainian singer Ani Lorak and American turned Russian actor Steven Seagal.

Finally, here, with Trump in 2013

And this is Sheila Agalarova, the sister who brought Trump that letter from Putin, apparently
