Rihanna wants Trump to stop the music

After all, most are not really fans of MAGA so they'd rather not have their songs played at Trump's rallies.

According to Rolling Stone, Rih's legal team issued the order on Monday following reports that her song "Don't Stop the Music" was played at a Sunday campaign rally for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn that Trump attended in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Rihanna's tweet, responding to a Washington Post reporter's amusement about hearing her song at a Trump rally, suggested that she, too, wanted the music to stop.

Her lawyer, Jordan Siev, followed up on Tuesday with a "cease and desist" letter to the White House.

After Pharrell Williams, Donald Trump upsets another artist by using their song without their consent at his rally and that is non-other than multitalented singer, songwriter and actress, Rihanna. "Such use is therefore improper", the letter continued (Rihanna's real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty).

Earlier she had tweeted urging Florida residents to turnout and back Andrew Gillium, the Democrat candidate, to be state governor.

The Guns N' Roses frontman also said the band had formally requested that its music not be used at Trump rallies or Trump-associated events.

"Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using legal loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses". When Trump played Pharrell's hit song just hours after 11 people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue, the musician responded with disgust: "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".

Last month, Prince's estate warned Mr Trump about playing the late pop star's hit Purple Rain at his rallies.

He made his political perspective clear earlier in the week by tweeting, "Vote Blue..." "I do not let anyone use my songs without my permission". And if the Trump regime only used music by artists who supported the president it would be quite a short playlist.
