Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor Doesn't Like Drake, But He Gets It

And don't even get him started with the President of the United States.

"Aside from whatever ideological beliefs he has - if he has any - he's a grotesque person who represents everything I hate", Trent Reznor said during an interview for Vulture.

"Donald Trump is a bad guy, isn't he?"

Reznor may be dismissed as just a rock and roller by people who don't care for his liberal politics, but the songwriter of "Hurt", one of the most meaningful songs ever written, deserves to be heard on diverse and sundry subjects. Particularly interesting is his discussion of his work with Apple and Beats, the conflict between being a controversial artist and being a father, and the separation between Nine Inch Nails and the much younger audience seeing them in their current festival circuit. "I don't think he believes in science and I don't think he believes people should be treated decently and I don't think he tells the truth". I'm repulsed by everything about him, and he's the president, you know?

Reznor described Trump succinctly and accurately, "he's a complete fuc*ing moron".

Reznor added that he considers himself "the old guy" when it comes to social media and the app-filled life that is today. However, it "stopped being fun" and started getting "surreal" once Trump won the nomination. "I grew up in that".

Reznor told the Village Voice that, growing up in rural, conservative-leaning Pennsylvania, he could understand how people outside of cities could feel marginalized and therefore align with someone like Trump.

Trent Reznor is now on tour and doing interviews in promotion of a new Nine Inch Nails EP called Add Violence.
