Zedd Says Other Artists Should Speak Out About Trump

Zedd looks relaxed on the latest cover of Billboard magazine.

Here’s what the 27-year-old German DJ had to share with the mag:

On President Donald Trump: “No matter how big the scandal is, no matter how insane a [Trump] tweet is, it just keeps going. You feel powerless, and that’s terrible to me. Take that to a bigger scale and you end up in North Korea, where people are slaves of their own country.”

On urging other artists to speak out against Trump: “They don’t want to lose fans. I understand where they are coming from, but I disagree with that being a good reason not to speak up.”

On reaching out to Kesha to make music during public struggles: “It was just a therapy thing, making music with someone to help them feel better.”

Jared Leto, who collaborated with Zedd on a to-be-released 30 Seconds to Mars song (and has also taken him rock climbing), puts it: “He is a relentless worker and really puts in the time. He is not someone who just shows up and takes selfies all day.”
