Adele Tells Trump to Stop Using her Music
Next week, it's on to New Hampshire where I will be broadcasting live Monday and Primary Tuesday. In the meantime, Cruz cruised past Trump in Iowa but that wasn't his only bump. All the candidates choose songs. Should artists be allowed to ban candidates like Trump even if he pays to legally use the tracks? Well, Donald Trump won't be rolling in the deep any more! According to Gossip Cop, his campaign has been contacted by reps for Adele demanding that they stop using her music.
Trump has been playing parts of "Rolling in the Deep" and "Skyfall" to get his supporters excited during events including the lyrics "We could have had it all..." and "When it crumbles, we will stand tall, face it all together."
The lines are supposed to support his "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. It is unclear if Trump has acquired a legal license to use the tracks. Donald has been vocal about his fandom of Adele and even attended her concert at Radio City Music Hall back in November. She is not the first artist to take action against the controversial candidate. A lawyer for Aerosmith's Steven Tyler sent a cease and desist letter to Trump when he started using "Dream On" at events. However, it was later revealed that the campaign did obtain public performance licenses from ASCAP and BMI to use the track.
What song would you pick for each candidate? Let us know and we'll share them with everyone!
