Adele Denies Donald Trump Permission To Use Her Music While Campaigning
Donald Trump won’t be jamming to Adele‘s tunes along his campaign trail for the presidency of the United States because our homegirl from across the pond has denied him permission to use her music.
Here’s the scoop via E! News:
The real estate magnate has used “Rolling in the Deep” and “Skyfall” at various events to rev up the crowd, but that will soon come to an end as a rep for the famous singer tells E! News, “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning.”
An Adele fan, Trump attended her Radio City Music Hall concert at the end of 2015.
Trump isn’t the first politician to appropriate the British singer’s music for campaign use. Mike Huckabee also shared a cover of Adele’s “Hello” on Twitter and YouTube, but the audio since has been muted as a result of a claim from the copyright holder. This also isn’t this first time a musician has banned his or her music from political events.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, Steven Tyler never granted Trump permission to feature Aerosmith’s singles at rallies and other gatherings. As a result, he requested the presidential hopeful to stop playing the songs.
Adds this to my growing list of why I love Adele.
