With the election taking place tomorrow (November 8), an increasing number of musicians are sharing their views and urging Americans to vote. In this week’s NME, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has compared Trump to Hitler and blamed his rise on “uneducated white working-class people”. He also revealed that some of his family members are Trump supporters.
Madonna is due to play a last-minute acoustic gig in New York City tonight in support of Clinton, Trump’s rival. The Queen of Pop previously offered to give anyone who votes for Clinton a blowjob during her appearance at one of Amy Schumer’s stand-up gigs.
Meanwhile, Trump has attacked Jay Z over his use of the N & F-words during his performance at Clinton’s rally in Cleveland, Ohio on Friday (November 4). “I’ll tell you what: I’ve never said what he said – in my life!” he told supporters at his own rally in Tampa, Florida the following night.
