Adele isn’t saying the sky is falling, but she’s angry over Donald Trump’s use of her James Bond hit and other songs at his presidential campaign events, most recently in Iowa.

“Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” a spokesman for the singer told The Independent.

“The Republican frontrunner has consistently played Adele’s smash hit ‘Rolling In The Deep.’ with its ‘we could have had it all’ refrain, to stoke up the atmosphere at campaign events before his appearance,” the UK paper said.

“Trump, an Adele fan who attended her New York concert last year, has also played ‘Skyfall,’ the singer’s James Bond theme (“when it crumbles, we will stand tall, face it all together”) after delivering his apocalyptic stump speech about America’s future.”

Adele’s action followed complaints on social media.
