Rihanna Doesn't Want President Trump Playing Her Bops At His "Tragic" Rallies

On Saturday, Rihanna threw her support behind Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for Florida governor, encouraging her fans to vote for him in Tuesday's midterm elections. Check it out below.

Rihanna is just the latest prominent singer to demand Trump stops playing their music at his rallies.

After the singer's response, the Washington Post reporter tweeted that Rihanna had served notice about Trump playing her music.

International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde also said there remained "room for even greater reform" in China's market. The Chinese president said China would push forward multilateral and bilateral cooperation in pursuit of development.


Rucker said the song was played while aides tossed Trump T-shirts into the crowd, as is commonly done at baseball games.

But as Rihanna declared in a tweet, she or her representatives wouldn't ever attend those "tragic rallies". "The U.S. has only had four black Governors [sic] in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida's first!"

Rihanna has now made it known she also doesn't want her tunes to be connected to the president's politics either. "Let's #bringithome. Vote [Andrew Gillum]". Last week, Pharrell objected after Trump played his song "Happy" at a rally held in Murphysboro, Illinois hours after a deadly shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Tyler sent three cease-and-desist letters to Trump - two in 2015 for "Dream On" and one this August for "Livin' on the Edge".

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for you use of this song for this objective", said the letter.

Trump has a storied record of using songs and making musicians a tiny bit aggravated - many are clearly not Trump supporters.
