But as Rihanna declared in a tweet, she or her representatives wouldn't ever attend those "tragic rallies".

Over the weekend, Rihanna and Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose joined the chorus of musicians criticizing President Trump for using their music in his rallies without permission.

"If you're exhausted of feeling like you don't matter in the political process", Rihanna wrote in an Instagram post.

Earlier in the day, Rihanna endorsed Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for governor of Florida.

RiRi's 2007 hit Don't Stop The Music was selected by Trump's team as part of the motivating soundtrack for his rally in in Chattanooga, Tennessee yesterday (4 November), which was held ahead of tomorrow's hugely-important mid-term elections in the US.

She posted: "Florida: You have the opportunity to make history this election".

At this point, it looks like it's going to get to a stage where no artists are going to let Donald Trump play their music at his rallies.

"Unfortunately, the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters' consent". Most recently, Pharrell sent a cease and a desist to 45 for using his song "Happy" at a rally in IL.

Lawyers for the singer issued Mr Trump a cease and desist letter after he played the song at a political event in IN "on the day of the mass murder of 11 human bring at the hands of a deranged "nationalist". The song was played at a rally hours after a gunman killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Other artists, including The Rolling Stones, The O'Jays, Adele, and Queen also requested Trump not use their music.
