The Anti singer has had her say on the US President's use of her music at his rallies, slamming the MAGA gatherings as "tragic" and vowing to prevent Donald Trump from ever using her tunes for his political gain again.

A number of musicians have expressed outrage after learning their songs were played at the Republican president's political rallies without authorization.

The singer responded Sunday after Philip Rucker, the White House bureau chief for the Washington Post, tweeted that Rihanna's single "Don't Stop the Music" was being played at a Trump rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

On Monday night, Rihanna's legal team served the Trump campaign with a cease and desist.

Rihanna is far from the first artist to try to get Trump to stop playing her music. "Such use is therefore improper", the letter continued (Rihanna's real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty).

Guns N' Roses are the latest artist to demand that Trump refrain from using their music at political rallies.

Earlier on Sunday, Rihanna weighed in on another primary race, endorsing Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for Florida's governor.

And just last week, Pharrell Williams' lawyer sent Trump a cease-and-desist letter in which the singer claimed he didn't grant the campaign permission to use his song "Happy" at a rally in IL.

As we previously reported, in the wake of the deadly shooting at a Pittsburg synagogue, Pharrell Williams recently sent #45 a cease-and-desist letter demanding that the president stop playing his hit song "Happy" at his rallies. "I do not let anyone use my songs without my permission". Rihanna also called out specific issues-wage increases for teachers, repealing Stand Your Ground, criminal justice and healthcare reform, and increasing the minimum wage-in her post. Like, obsessed. The feeling is not mutual, John publicly denounced the use of his songs "Rocket Man" and "Tiny Dancer" at campaign rallies.

In a series of tweets, Rose said that Trump has used the music of other artists aswell, who in the past had protested against it.
