Adele is asking Republican candidate Donald Trump to not play her songs without her permission. Reports reached the singer that her top hits like “Rolling in the Deep” and the theme to “Skyfall” were being played at Trump’s political rallies.
Fans tweeted the British singer about it, prompting her camp to release a statement. “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” said a spokesperson, per Independent. The news outlet also revealed that Trump is a fan of the singer and even attended her New York show in November.
Even Trump’s rival, Mike Huckabee, made use of Adele’s music in his campaign trails with “Hello,” with the lyrics rewritten to fit the politician’s message.
Adele declared in the past that she wants to stay out of politics, but she considers herself a Labour girl.
Meanwhile, lawyers by Aerosmith lead Steven Tyler also sent Trump’s camp a cease and desist order after learning that they played his song “Dream On” in one of his campaign soirees. “[It] gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr Trump’s presidential bid,” said the statement, according to Standard.
