Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose slams Trump campaign with lewd message

Rihanna is just the latest prominent singer to demand Trump stops playing their music at his rallies.

Rihanna has sent Donald Trump a cease and desist letter demanding that he stop playing her music at his rallies.

At the end of October, Pharrell's lawyer Howard King sent Trump a cease-and-desist after the song "Happy" was reportedly played at a Midwest rally following the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. He further claimed that Trump's team is using " blanket performance licenses" for using the music of several artists.

As Variety points out, the president is now using a blanket license, which are licenses issued by venues that allow them to have permission to use music from any musician's catalogue, whether they agree to it or not.

Mr Rucker tweeted: "It's been said a million times, but here's a million and one - Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics".

Later on Sunday, Rose tweeted that he welcomes fans from all political ideologies to listen to and enjoy Guns N' Roses, but that's not going to stop him from opposing Trump.

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

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for you use of this song for this objective", said the letter.

The statement comes following the use of their 1988 single Sweet Child O' Mine during the President's recent visit to West Virginia.

A number of musicians have expressed outrage after learning their songs were played at the Republican president's political rallies without authorization. Tyler had previously asked Trump twice in 2015 not to use the band's hit "Dream On" during the presidential campaign.
