Rihanna Shuts Down Use Of Her Music At Donald Trump’s

RiRi's 2007 hit Don't Stop The Music was selected by Trump's team as part of the motivating soundtrack for his rally in in Chattanooga, Tennessee yesterday (4 November), which was held ahead of tomorrow's hugely-important mid-term elections in the US.

She's in good company alongside Prince, Queen, Adele and many others who have requested that their music not be played at Trump's rallies. 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".

"It's been said a million times, but here's a million and one - Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics", wrote The Washington Post's Philip Rucker on Sunday.

The Anti singer has had her say on the US President's use of her music at his rallies, slamming the MAGA gatherings as "tragic" and vowing to prevent Donald Trump from ever using her tunes for his political gain again.

"If you're exhausted of feeling like you don't matter in the political process", Rihanna wrote in an Instagram post.

Earlier on Sunday, Rihanna weighed in on another primary race, endorsing Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for Florida's governor.

She posted: "Florida: You have the opportunity to make history this election".

However, as a national of Barbados she was not eligible to vote herself.

"Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using legal loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses".

Guns N' Roses are the latest artist to demand that Trump refrain from using their music at political rallies.
