That's the message Rihanna sent to President Donald Trump Sunday night after learning that her 2007 single "Don't Stop the Music" was played at one of his rallies. 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. Rihanna, one of the artists that Trump seems to think would be cool with having her music played at his rallies, weighed in when she discovered what was going on.

Rihanna called Mr Trump's rallies "tragic" and said he would not be using her music "for much longer".

Over the weekend, the singer took to Instagram to encourage the Miami electorate to "make history" in tomorrow's elections by voting in Democrat Andrew Gillum as Governor.

Her lawyer, Jordan Siev, followed up on Tuesday with a "cease and desist" letter to the White House.
