She told BBC host Annie Mac, “The madness of Trump, as bad as it was, it really needed to happen. We really needed a reflection of our world’s greatest problem, which is not climate change, but sociopathy and narcissism.”

“Especially in America,” she added. “It’s going to kill the world.”

Lana also described the attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol as “disassociated rage” and suggested that Trump didn’t knowingly incite the riot.

“You know, he doesn’t know that he’s inciting a riot and I believe that,” she said. “They want to wile out somewhere. And it’s like, we don’t know how to find a way to be wild in our world. And at the same time, the world is so wild.”

Lana added, “I think people are having to re-evaluate what is strange and not strange. Watching the people storm the Capitol, everyone gets to go look at that and figure out what Capitols they’ve been storming this year in their own f-n’ lives. ‘Cause everyone’s running amok.”
