Christine And The Queens speaks out against Donald Trump

'People just want to show something by destroying things'

Christine And The Queens has spoken out against Presidential candidate Donald Trump, comparing his campaign to a ‘cycle of destruction’.

The French alt-pop sensation, who is continuing her huge campaign for album ‘Chaleur Humaine’ with a tour of the US – during what she calls “an interesting and dramatic, hectic phase” because of the election.

When asked who she thinks will win, she told Rolling Stone: “
I would say Hillary because I don’t really believe Trump could win because I don’t want to believe it, but then again who knows?

“It’s like Brexit. I remember at Glastonbury, talking to about my labelmates about it, the night before, and we were like, “That can’t happen; this is impossible,” and then the next morning everyone was like, “What?!””

Speaking of the mood in the US, she added: “It feels like there is a cycle of destruction. There is a social anger, and people just want to show something by destroying things. But yeah, I hope Trump is not going to win. I feel like right now an intense fear of him winning even more than two weeks ago, so it’s going to be quite interesting to tour. Then again I’m not doing a full, intense tour, and I think America is several realities.

“I would be interested in bringing Christine to Texas, see what happens, you know? This is what I loved about touring all the cities in France. In some cities, I was just this girl singing onstage about having a dick.
