AceShowbiz - The list of musicians who condemn Donald Trump for playing their music at his rallies just keeps getting longer and longer. The latest act to call out POTUS for playing her music during his rallies was Rihanna, and it looks like it won't be long until she finally issues legal warning to the president.
Judging by her tweet, it appears the songstress didn't know that her music was being played at Trump's rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee until Washington Post correspondent Philip Rucker tweeted a report. He said Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music" was "blaring" in the stadium as aides tossed free Trump T-shirt to the crowd.
He also noted that the crowd was loving his move to play the song, but Rihanna was certainly not moved by it, even just a little bit. In response to the tweet, the "Umbrella" hitmaker wrote on Sunday, November 4, "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!"

And Rihanna wasn't the only person who was upset to learn that Trump played her songs during recent campaigns. Earlier in the day, Guns N' Roses' frontman Axl Rose revealed that the president's team had been playing the band's songs such as "Sweet Child O' Mine" at political function even though the group hadn't given its consent.
"Just so ya know... GNR like a lot of artists opposed to the unauthorized use of their music at political events has formally requested r music not b used at Trump rallies or Trump associated event," he said in a series of tweets. "Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters' consent. Can u say 's**tbags?!” "

He continued, "Personally I kinda liked the irony of Trump supporters listening to a bunch of anti Trump music at his rallies but I don't imagine a lot of 'em really get that or care.
