If Adele was able to vote in the United States, it's safe to say whose name she wouldn't be checking off on her ballor: Donald Trump. Despite the politician's actions to the contrary, the "Someone Like You" singer has put her foot down, saying he does not have her permission to use her music during rallies for his presidential campaign.
Donald has angered a number of Adele fans after repeatedly playing her hit "Rolling in the Deep" at campaign events before he takes to the stage. The businessman also used her James Bond theme tune "Skyfall" when delivering a speech about America's future.
He is not the only politician to use the 27-year-old's music to create a buzz ahead of their speeches. Mike Huckabee, Donald's rival for the Republican vote, also shared a cover of Adele's "Hello" on YouTube, changing lyrics to reference his rivals and campaign. However, a claim from the copyright holder of the song has resulted in the audio on the video being muted.
"Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning," a spokesperson for the singer told The Independent.
Donald has also been ordered to stop using the Aerosmith power ballad "Dream On" at campaign events. Lawyers for the band's frontman Steven Tyler sent a second cease and desist letter to Donald's campaign committee, saying he does "not have our client's permission to use 'Dream On' or any of the musician's other songs."
It "gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid," the letter added.
Donald Trump is known to be an Adele fan and previously annoyed some of her fans when he "cut the line" to get to his seat at her performance at the Radio City Music Hall in November.
