Rihanna slams Trump for using her music at rallies

Rihanna Glad to Learn Trump Plays Her Music At His Rallies, So She Can Shut That Down Immediately Rihanna Shuts Down Use Of Her Music At Donald Trump’s “Tragic Rallies”

The letter comes after the pop star vowed to stop President Trump from playing her songs at future rallies.

Rihanna, Rose and Williams join the wide assortment of other artists who have asked the president not to play their music, including the likes of Prince, The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, R.E.M. and Adele.

On Sunday, Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker tweeted that the singer's music was being played at a Trump rally in Tennessee.

But as Rihanna declared in a tweet, she or her representatives wouldn't ever attend those "tragic rallies".

Just yesterday the philanthropist who has increasingly been vocal about social and governmental issues around the world, used Instagram to gave her support for the Democratic nominee for Governor in Florida, Andrew Gillum.

The Star Tribune reported the girl appeared in court in handcuffs and was charged with first-degree intentional homicide. According to the district attorney, Treu and a friend bought an air duster and were huffing in the vehicle .

"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.

Trump has a storied record of using songs and making musicians a tiny bit aggravated - many are clearly not Trump supporters.

It then references Rihanna's surname, Fenty, and says she has not given Mr Trump permission to use her music.

Last week, Pharrell Wiliams had his lawyer send a cease-and-desist letter to Trump to stop playing Happy at his political events. To be fair, the president is using wildly inappropriate songs at his rallies anyway-not inappropriate in nature themselves, but more so that every song doesn't really even seem to fit in with his ideals. Both expressed annoyance that Trump has recently played their music at his rallies.

"Good for @rihanna", wrote Rep. Eric Swalwell (Calif.) on Twitter.
