Rihanna Wants Trump to Stop Playing Her Music at His Rallies

3 days ago, President Donald Trump's campaign airing the GN'R song "Sweet Child O' Mine" at his West Virginia rally.

But when the pop star learned that her 2007 hit song had been featured at the rally, her response was unambiguous: She did, in fact, want the music to stop.

Rose tweeted on November 4 that "GNR, like a lot of artists opposed to the unauthorized use of their music at political events" have formally requested their music not be used at Trump rallies or associated events.

The popstar, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, became aware of the unauthorised use of her music when Washington Post reporter Philip Rucker tweeted about it. 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.

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

Singer Rihanna has rejected Donald Trump's use of her music.

Cavaliers' Love (foot) out at least six weeks
The 30-year-old signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension over the summer that keeps him under contract through 2023. The team announced that Love had the procedure, calling it successful, at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses also expressed frustration his music was being played at political rallies.

"Florida: You have the opportunity to make history this election", said RiRi.

Her legal team has now sent an official letter to the White House. The answer lies in the intricate thicket of licensing and copyright law, which in the past has given political campaigns a lot of leeway to choose whatever songs they like.

With Trump's use of this license, there's little that artists can do in order to fight against venues to stop using their music at the president's rallies. "I do not let anyone use my songs without my permission".

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.
