'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.
