ARIANA GRANDE’s new song “The Light is Coming” includes a sample of a guy saying “You wouldn’t let anybody speak, and instead!” . . . over and over again. Turns out it came from an old CNN clip from 2009.
It was at a town hall meeting held by then-Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter. And the speaker is Craig Anthony Miller, who’s 68 now. MTV reached out to Miller, and he didn’t even know about it.
Now that he does know, he’s not going to buy the song or even listen to it anymore. Quote, “I’m not in the MTV crowd because I’m 68 years old. [It] doesn’t matter [if my voice is on it]. It’s not going to put any money in my pocket, I’m sure!”
