Riri said IKYFL!!! NOT TODAY!!!! As we all know our beloved Rihanna holds her tongue for no man not even Donald Trump. After finding out that Trump and some of his fellow Republicans have been using her music to get the party started at their rallies Riri was not having it.
Ms. Fenty and her lawyers politely served Trump with a cease and desist letter on Monday after Rihanna was tipped off that her song “Don’t Stop the Music” was played at a Sunday campaign rally for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn that Trump attended.
According to Time, Rihanna’s legal team wrote in the letter to Trump’s White House counsel, “It has come to our attention that President Trump has utilized [Rihanna’s] musical compositions and master recordings, including her hit track ‘Don’t Stop the Music,’ in connection with a number of political events held across the United States”. It went on to say, “As you are or should be aware, Ms. Fenty has not provided her consent to Mr. Trump to use her music. Such use is therefore improper.” Before taking legal action, Rihanna went to Twitter to thank the reporter who tipped her off saying, “Me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies”. Guess Trump’s going to be stopping the music from now on…..pun totally intended!
