Rihanna wants Trump to stop playing her songs at 'tragic rallies'

Pop star Rihanna has a special message for President Donald Trump: Stop playing my music at your rallies.

Hours after tweeting her support for Democrat Andrew Gillum in the Florida governor's race, the Grammy Award-winning singer learned that one of her songs was playing at a Trump rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee – and wasn't pleased.

It all started when the Washington Post's Philip Rucker shared the following tweet from the rally:

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

Everyone except Rihanna, that is.

"Not for much longer ... me nor my people would ever be at or around one of these tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip," she replied.

Rihanna isn't the first musician to fire back at Trump over his song selections. Just last week, Pharrell Williams threatened to sue the president for playing "Happy" at a rally held the same day as the deadly Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, USA Today reported.
