Rihanna Slams Donald Trump For Playing Her Music

Adjust Comment Print

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

Referencing the claim that her music was being played at Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign rallies she insisted: "Not for much longer".

The information came from no less a source than Washington Post White House bureau chief Philip Rucker, who was trying to convey to readers the politically unique aura of Trump's rallies.

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

"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". "Let's #bringithome. Vote [Andrew Gillum]". And with just one day before the midterms in the United States on November 6, she is not letting up.

Please do stop the music, Donald - you've been told by Rihanna. That's a platform we MUST support.

Rihanna isn't the only musician slamming the president for playing their songs. Last week, Pharrell objected after Trump played his song "Happy" at a rally held in Murphysboro, Illinois hours after a deadly shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. In a series of tweets the singer said, "Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters' consent".

"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 objective", said the letter.

Other artists, including The Rolling Stones, The O'Jays, Adele, and Queen also requested Trump not use their music.
