Adele has never given Donald Trump permission to use her songs, but unfortunately that hasn't stopped the presidential candidate. Trump played two of Adele's songs at two separate rallies, including "Rolling in the Deep"when introducing Sarah Palin in Oklahoma and "Skyfall" at a rally in Ohio. Now, the British singer is breaking her silence on the matter. In an official statement, a spokesperson for her notes, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

This isn't the first time the presidential candidate has gotten in trouble for using music without receiving permission. Aersosmith​'s Steven Tyler and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe previously asked Trump to stop using the music of their respective bands after his campaign played them at rallies on the campaign trail.
