Following her tweet in disapproval over the President using her music at rallies, Rihanna‘s legal team has sent Trump a cease and desist letter. Rihanna’s legal team has sent the President a cease and desist order for playing tracks, such as her hit single “Don’t Stop the Music,” at multiple political functions.
“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,” Rihanna’s team said in the letter sent to the White House counsel. This follows the outspoken artist’s decision to decline to perform at the NFL Halftime Show and Pharell’s cease and desist for playing his hit “Happy” at a campaign following the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip! https://t.co/dRgRi06GrJ

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 #AndrewGillum 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 #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!
