Adele Tells Donald Trump To Stop Using Her Music On The Campaign Trail

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been playing Adele's music at his rallies without her permission. Now she's putting a stop to that.

At a rally in Oklahoma, "Rolling in the Deep" played after Sarah Palin's impassioned speech. Trump also used the "Skyfall" theme at an event in Ohio.

Fans tweeted their outrage, urging the British musician to ban Palin and Trump from using her music.

Adele has made it a point since 2011 to stay out of politics, but now her team is taking steps to ensure Trump no longer uses her music.

“Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” Adele's spokesperson told the Independent.

Adele is not the only musician whose music the Donald's campaign has appropriated. After Trump blasted "Dream On" at one of his rallies, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler's lawyers sent Trump cease-and-desist letters to Trump saying he did “not have our client’s permission” to use the song.

"[It] gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr Trump’s presidential bid,” the letter continued.

REM lead singer Michael Stipe also released a statement after one of his band's songs were used at a Trump rally without their permission. The statement included: "Go f**k yourselves, the lot of you -- you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men. Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”

Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist,misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
