Adele denies Donald Trump right to use her songs

February 02, 2016

British pop star Adele, has denied American presidential candidate, Donald Trump the privilege of using her songs during his presidential campaign, E! News reports.

Previously, Trump used Rolling in the Deep and Skyfall at various events to 'warm up' the crowd and gain popularity with potential voters, however, Adele has now sought to disassociate herself from Trump.

A spokesman of the Hello singer’s management team has said, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."

The politician was first observed to have played Adele's hit during a rally held in Lexington, South Carolina, last week. prompting BBC's North America Editor Jon Sopel to comment, it was an "unlikely combo".

But Trump is believed to be a fan of the singer's work, even having watched her perform in New York.

It is not the first time Trump has been criticised for appropriating pop songs as Aerosmith and Stephen Tyler both sent Trump a cease-and-desist letter last year, after the politician played the band's hit single Dream On at numerous rallies around the US.
