Worldwide pop star, Rihanna was far from happy when she learnt that her song Don't Stop the Music was being played at a Donald Trump rally.

"Currently Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music" is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game".

Rihanna responded to the tweet to let people know that her music would not be played at a Trump rally again, and also described his rallies as "tragic". "Everyone's loving it", Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker wrote.

Similarly, she posted to Instagram: "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 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".

Earlier she had tweeted urging Florida residents to turnout and back Andrew Gillium, the Democrat candidate, to be state governor.
