Rihanna slams Donald Trump for using her music at his rallies

Headlines 05/11/2018

Rihanna isn't famous for her political beliefs, she generally keeps to herself on such matters. But she's also a certified "BadGal" so it's no surprise to see her occasionally drift into the political world when called upon, as Donald Trump will soon come to learn.

Political commentator Philip Rucker tweeted that Trump was playing Rihanna's hit "Don't Stop the Music" while staff tossed free Trump merchandise into the crowd at his latest political rally.

"It’s been said a million times, but here’s a million and one — Trump’s rallies are unlike anything else in politics. 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. Everyone’s loving it."

And it sounds as though RiRi wasn't having a bar of it after she took to Twitter to weigh in on the matter, and she's about as happy about it as you could imagine:

Me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies

Obviously unimpressed with her Commander in Chief's use of her music, it sounds as though Rihanna might be taking further action as she goes on to say "thanks for the heads up."

Rihanna is not the first artist to shun Trump's use of their music, Bruce Springstein, The Rolling Stones, Sting, and more have all taken legal action against the President in the past.
