Rihanna Also Wants Trump To Stop Playing Her Music At Rallies; Sends Cease And Desist

Contributed by Shawna Mizelle 

Another one bites the dust! It seems President Trump can’t play any music at his rallies without ruffling feathers. Grammy Award-winning singer, Rihanna is the latest artist to send Trump a cease and desist order for playing her song “Don’t Stop The Music” at a rally in Chattanooga.

Rihanna found out her music was being played when a Washington Post reporter, Philip Rucker, tweeted about it. Rihanna responded saying, “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!”

Rihanna joins a list of many other artists that have been vocal about their disdain with President Trump playing their music at rallies. WHUR previously reported on Pharell’s team sending the President a cease and desist order for playing his song ‘Happy’ at rallies. We also covered the Prince Estate demanding Purple Rain stop being played at Trump’s rallies. At this rate President Donald Trump wont have any music to play at his rallies pretty soon.

Rihanna has been very vocal politically lately. As WHUR previously reportedshe turned down an offer to perform at the Superbowl Halftime show to show support and solidarity to Colin Kapernick.

Rihanna has also been using her social media to encourage others to be politically active and vote. She recently endorsed Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum in an Instagram post.

FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!
