Rihanna wants Trump to stop playing her songs at rallies

  • Rihanna Reportedly Serves Notice After Her Song Is Used At Trump Rally

In response to a tweet heralding the spirit at Trump rallies and the role of Rih's music in them, Rihanna ensured that her stance on the matter was clear.

"Currently Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music" is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game".

However, The Washington Post reported that Rihanna may not have any control over it. As Axl Rose from the band Guns N' Roses said, the Trump team is using "loopholes" to play songs from artists who have not given him permission to use their music.

"Neither me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies".

Rihanna's withering put-down of the Trump gatherings as "tragic rallies" went down brilliantly on Twitter, with the diss racking up over 346,000 likes on Twitter at the time of writing.


Earlier on Sunday, the singer endorsed Democrat Andrew Gillum in Florida's governor's race with social media posts.

She wrote: "You have the opportunity to make history this election". "Let's #bringithome. Vote [Andrew Gillum]". That's a platform we MUST support.

Similar to his events during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's selection of music before and after the rallies has remained constant, most notably Lee Greenwood's rendition of 'God Bless the U.S.A'.

Rihanna isn't the first popular singer to spurn her work's use at a Trump event.

"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 goal", said Howard King, a lawyer for Williams. "In 2016, Adele had previously requested the president stop playing "Rolling in the Deep" at his campaign rallies".
