Rihanna Calls Out Donald Trump for Playing Her Music at His Rallies

The US president delivered a speech in Chattanooga Tennessee

That's the message Rihanna sent to President Donald Trump Sunday night after learning her 2007 single "Don't Stop the Music" was played at one of his rallies.

It looks like Trump may have to dip into the pool of public domain songs soon, because now Rihanna has added herself to the list of musicians who don't want their songs played at Trump-related events.

According to Rucker, the song was played while aides tossed Trump T-shirts into the crowd.

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

Maybe POTUS can pay for the rights to "Umbrella" instead?

Two planes collide MID-AIR over Canada
Police said one of the aircraft crashed into a field near McGee Side Road just east of the 417 in Carp in rural west Ottawa . In mid-October, an ultra-light plane crashed on a road, narrowly missing a house and leaving the pilot seriously injured.

This happened after Rihanna endorsed Andrew Gillium, the Democratic candidate for governor of Florida via an Instagram post.

"Not for much longer", she wrote to the reporter. "Let's #bringithome. Vote [Andrew Gillum]. If you're exhausted of feeling like you don't matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues".

Rihanna has made it clear she doesn't agree with the president or his politics. American singer and rapper, Pharrell Williams have recently issued a cease and desist letter for using his song "Happy" at a rally.

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this goal", said Howard King, a lawyer for Williams.

The estate of Prince has also warned president about playing the late star's song Purple Rain at rallies, while Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler took action over the use of his song Livin' On The Edge.
