During The Weeknd's featured interview, the singer discusses cutting his hair prior to his new album and even got political, weighing in on America's president-elect, Donald Trump. And, frankly, the Canadian says what many in the U.S. have been thinking all along.
Back in October, before Trump won the election, audio was leaked of a horrendous and lewd conversation during which he now-infamously said that he grabs "[women] by the p***y." The disgusting words came up during The Weeknd's sit-down with GQ and his response was extremely on point.
"I don’t know anybody that would do that," The Weeknd said in regard to Trump's offensive comments. "I know a lot of people in the industry, and I don’t know anybody. Like, a random girl that like you just spoke to? No. I mean… No. How do you even grab a p***y? Like, is it even grabbable? America, man. They never fail you."
Couldn't agree with you more, Abel. That being said, we can all do without Trump going into further graphic detail, thanks.
