GOP presidential contender Donald Trump says he’s a big fan of Adele, and he has been using her songs “Rolling in the Deep” and “Skyfall” at his campaign rallies in Iowa. But USA Today reports that the singer issued a warning that she has not given permission for use of her music.
Her rep Benny Tarantini reportedly sent out a statement that says: “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning.”
USA Today adds: “This followed a similar statement issued by Adele’s representative in London to The Independent, which reported it under the headline, ‘Adele didn’t give Donald Trump permission to use her music at rallies.'”
The statements reportedly followed online postings by Adele fans who heard her music at Trump rallies and posted inquiries about whether Adele knew the songs were being used by Trump.
