Rihanna Stops Use Of Her Music At Trump Rallies

Rihanna Glad to Learn Trump Plays Her Music At His Rallies, So She Can Shut That Down Immediately

Even Prince's estate released a statement when Trump played "Purple Rain" at a rally in MS, saying, "The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince's songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately".

Replied Rihanna with a retweet, "Not for much longer...me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip!"

"It's been said a million times, but here's a million and one - Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics", tweeted Rucker. "VOTE on November 6th!"

"You have the opportunity to make history this election", Rihanna wrote on Instagram.

The anticipated cease-and-desist letter from Rihanna's legal team would not be the first President Trump would be receiving, as a wide range of artistes have previously demanded that he does not use their music at his rallies. That's a platform we MUST support.

And Rihanna isn't the only celebrity losing it over her song being played in association with President Trump.

Pharrell Williams also recently put a stop to Trump's use of his music, by sending him a cease and desist letter.

Similar to his events during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's selection of music before and after the rallies has remained constant, most notably Lee Greenwood's rendition of 'God Bless the U.S.A'.

"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 objective", said Howard King, a lawyer for Williams.

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