Adele has banned US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump from playing her music at his political rallies.

A spokesperson for the UK singer told The Independent that the star has not given any permission for her material to be used at political campaigning, following the news that Trump had played her hit "Rolling In The Deep" and her James Bond theme tune "Skyfall" at various events.

The singer is not the only one to have withheld permission for the Republican candidate to use her work -- according to NME, Neil Young, Aerosmith and REM have all objected to their music being played at Trump rallies.
