Rihanna's not happy about Trump playing her music at rallies

DO STOP THE MUSIC: Rihanna is among the latest stars to take steps to ban Trump from playing their music

RIHANNA HAS joined a growing list of artists who have criticised president Donald Trump for playing their music at his campaign events.

The star has suggested that she will be banning the US president from using her music at Republican rallies.

Rihanna was made aware that she was on Trump’s political rally playlist via a tweet from the Washington Post’s White House bureau chief, Philip Rucker.

Rucker tweeted: “It’s been said a million times, but here’s a million and one — Trump’s rallies are unlike anything else in politics. 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.”

Responding to the tweet, the Bajan singer said: “Not for much nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up Philip!”

A vocal supporter of voting, the 30-year-old has been using her platform to encourage fans and followers to register and cast their vote in the polls.

Yesterday she shared a post on her social media platforms with the caption: “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 Andrew Gillum 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 Bring it home, Florida. Vote Andrew Gillum. And vote yes on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. Vote on November 6th!”

Oprah Winfrey and Michael B Jordan have also been using their influence to encourage Americans, to make their voice heard in the midterm elections that take place on November 6.

Winfrey has been out urging people to back Georgia governor candidate Stacey Abrams, who could become the United States’ first black female governor. The media mogul surprised members of the public as she went door knocking to drum up support for Abrams. Jordan also shocked black voters when he partnered with Color of Change PAC to visit unsuspecting members of the public at their homes and speak to them about casting their vote.
