Rihanna has called for Donald Trump to stop using her music at his rallies.
The “Disturbia” hitmaker was fuming when she realized the Trump played “Don’t Stop The Music” at a rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

by actual confusion is seen from the reactions of our client’s fans all
over social media.”
