During Donald Trump’s campaign for US presidency, one of a multitude of damning press material that had come out against him was a video recorded in 2005.
Trump was talking to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about women, and he revealed that he could do whatever he wanted to women because he was such a star.
Trump had said: “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful [women]—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
In a recent interview with GQ, singer The Weeknd, who is one of the biggest sex figures in music today (if not the biggest), was asked for his opinion on Trump’s statement, and if there was truly a relation between sex and stardom.
“I don’t know anybody that would do that,” he said to GQ. “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 pussy? Like, is it even grabbable? America, man. They never fail you.”
In his interview with GQ, he also spoke about his surprising haircut and plans to settle down. You can read the full interview on GQ here.
