  • Rihanna Glad to Learn Trump Plays Her Music At His Rallies, So She Can Shut That Down Immediately

Replied Rihanna with a retweet, "Not for much longer...me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip!"

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.

"It's been said a million times, but here's a million and one - Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics".

Imagine it: you're Rihanna.

RiRi's 2007 hit Don't Stop The Music was selected by Trump's team as part of the motivating soundtrack for his rally in in Chattanooga, Tennessee yesterday (4 November), which was held ahead of tomorrow's hugely-important mid-term elections in the US.

Earlier in the day, Rihanna endorsed Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for governor of Florida.

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

Just recently, Pharrell Williams issued Trump with a cease-and-desist letter after he played his song "Happy" at a rally in Indiana.

In August, Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler sent a cease and desist letter to the White House after Trump used the song "Livin' on the Edge" without permission at a campaign rally in West Virginia.

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for you use of this song for this goal", said the letter.

During the 2016 election numerous bands and artists, including Adele, the Rolling Stones and Elton John, requested the Trump campaign stop using their material.
