【新闻背景】近日，流行天后阿黛尔发表声明，称自己并未授权美国地产大亨特朗普在其总统竞选中使用自己的歌曲。特朗普参选的口号是“让美国再度强大”，而近日更是播放阿黛尔声名大噪的畅销单曲Rolling In The Deep作为竞选热场曲目。这可不是“川普”第一次未经允许就在竞选中播放人家的歌曲啦！
【BBC播报】Pop star Adele has issued a statement to distance herself from Donald Trump, after he used her music at his rallies.
The Republican presidential candidate, whose slogan is "Make America great again", has recently been playing Adele's hit Rolling In The Deep as his "warm-up" music.
"Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning," her spokesman confirmed.
It is not the first time Trump has been criticised for appropriating pop songs.
Lawyers for Aerosmith star Steven Tyler sent Trump's campaign a cease-and-desist letter last year, after the politician played the band's hit single Dream On at numerous rallies around the US.
The letter said Trump's use of the song gave "a false impression" he endorsed Mr Trump's presidential bid.
Trump responded on Twitter, saying he had the legal right to use the song, but had found "a better one to take its place".
"Steven Tyler got more publicity on his song request than he's gotten in 10 years. Good for him!" he added.
