Rihanna and Guns N' Roses - specifically Axl Rose - have taken to Twitter to denounce the use of their music at Donald Trump's rallies.

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.

Referencing the claim that her music was being played at Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign rallies she insisted: "Not for much longer". Even Prince's estate released a statement when Trump played "Purple Rain" at a rally in MS, saying, "The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince's songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately".

"Neither me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies".

Rihanna isn't the only musician slamming the president for playing their songs. "If you're exhausted 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". Just last week, Pharrell sent Trump a cease-and-desist letter for playing his song "Happy" at an event just hours after the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead.
