Rihanna wants Trump to stop the music at his rallies

Rihanna is really, really not okay with the US President Donald Trump using her music at political rallies.

The recording artist on Sunday responded to a tweet by WaPo political journalist Philip Rucker who this weekend attended a rally in Tennessee.

“Currently, Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game. Everyone’s loving it,” he tweeted.

But one person wasn’t loving it.

“Not for much longer,” Rihanna replied, “me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies.”

According to Rollingstone on Tuesday, Rihanna has sent Donald Trump’s team a cease-and-desist prohibiting the US President from using her music at future rallies.

“As you are or should be aware, Ms. Fenty has not provided her consent to Mr. Trump to use her music. Such use is therefore improper,” the letter reads.

US midterm elections begin today.
