TRENT REZNOR Says KANYE WEST Has 'Lost His Mind'

NINE INCH NAILS releases its new “Bad Witch” EP on Friday (June 22) and, according to The Pulse Of Radio, frontman Trent Reznor continues to take aim at other artists and the state of U.S. politics in interviews. Speaking to The Guardian about Kanye West‘s new album “ye”, Reznor bemoaned the lack of serious writing about rock, saying: “How many Kanye West thinkpieces have The Guardian done in the last fucking month? The guy’s lost his fucking mind: that’s the thinkpiece. His record sucked, and that’s it. He has made great shit; he’s not in a great place right now.”

Reznor also spoke about the state of the U.S., remarking: “It feels like things are coming unhinged, socially and culturally. The rise of Trumpism, of tribalism; the celebration of stupidity. I’m ashamed, on a world stage, at what we must look like as a culture… It doesn’t feel like we’ve advanced. I think you’re seeing the fall of the empire of America in real time, before your eyes.”

Reznor, who is a recovering addict, said that NINE INCH NAILS‘ recent string of EPs was inspired by his past history. He explained: “I think I know who I am now, the chaos feels behind me, there’s family life and stability. It was me daring myself to say: ‘What if all that was bullshit? And what I really am is an addict in remission that can’t wait to light a match to the whole thing?'”

“Bad Witch” concludes a trilogy of EPs that started in 2016 with “Not The Actual Events” and continued in 2017 with “Add Violence”.
