Adele To Donald Trump: Stop Using My Music At Your Rallies

If you've ever attended a political rally, you know it takes a long time to get things started. And no candidate wants to walk out to a "cold" audience. So, it's common for campaigns to play songs they feel will not only represent their message but rev up the crowd.

Sometimes, though, music artists aren't so happy to hear their music used by a political candidate.

You can list Adele among those folks.

The Trump campaign has been mixing in some Rolling In The Deep from Adele at campaign events based on the lyric "we could have had it all."

Trump has also utilized the singer's Skyfall, I'm guessing due to the lines “when it crumbles, we will stand tall, face it all together."

But Adele fans aren't happy and have voiced their opinions on social media:

Adele has now issued a statement saying she has never endorsed Trump's use of her music.

A spokesman for Adele issued this: “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."
