    The 30-year-old R'n'B star has demanded aloud that Donald Trump's staff "stop the music" something different from what she asked for in her 2007 single. She became the latest in an array of American stars that oppose their music being played at the US President's rallies.

    Rihanna didn't seem too happy about her tune being used at a Make America Great Again rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which Donald Trump held to support Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn in the upcoming midterm elections.

    The Barbadian-born songstress lashed out at Philip Rucker, the White House Bureau Chief for The Washington Post, after he said that Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music" was played in Chattanooga.

    She promised that this would be "not for much longer," thanking Rucker for the tip-off.

    Rihanna's inflammatory tweet has sown dissent among her whopping 88.8-million-strong Twitter audience, with some suggesting that she should go easy.

    Still others contend that Rihanna doesn't own the copyright and thus the venue simply has to pay the usage fees to play her songs at a rally.

    Rihanna isn't the first American singer to publicly voice displeasure over a song being added  to the playlist of Donald Trump-associated rallies. Hours before her tweet, Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses accused the Trump campaign of "using loopholes" in the licenses of different venues that host the rallies without his permission.

    Earlier, Trump, then on the stump, was asked not to use songs by Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, R.E.M., Neil Young, Adele, and Pharrell.
