Adele has denounced US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump's use of her music at political rallies, with a statement saying that she does not back his campaign.

Billionaire-turned-Republican frontrunner Trump has played the British singer's 'Rolling In The Deep' at various rallies, according to The Independent, while it was reported in November that Trump played 'Skyfall' at a rally in Ohio.

Approached by The Independent, a spokesperson for the singer has said: "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning".

A number of singers have previously objected to Trump using their music at campaign rallies, including Neil Young and Aerosmith.

REM frontman Michael Stipe released a statement after Trump used his band's music. Stipe said: "Go fuck yourselves, the lot of you – you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men. Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign."

Bandmate Mike Mills added: "Personally, I think the Orange Clown will do anything for attention. I hate giving it to him."

Rapper Azealia Banks recently made headlines after backing Trump, saying that she is voting for him because he is "evil, like America".

"I only trust this country to be what it is: full of shit," she continued. "Takes shit to know shit so we may as well, put a piece of shit in the White House".
