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.

OnePlus 6T now official with a smaller notch
The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that can boost up to 2.8GHz, along with an Adreno 630 GPU. It's also the first smartphone to come kitted out with Gorilla Glass 6, which should make its screen less prone to shattering .

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.
