“Art or music transcends politics, I think. I hope it does. I actually said that to George Bush,” Streisand told The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman in an interview published Tuesday.
The 76-year-old’s latest album, “Walls,” is almost entirely a dig at Trump, and she says she was inspired to do a whole album about her feelings towards him because they kept her up at night.
“I would lie awake at night with Trump’s outrages running through my head, and I had to do another album for Columbia Records, so I thought, why not make an album about what’s on my mind? And that became the title of the first song. I am so grateful to have music in my life as a way to express myself,” she told the Times.
When asked about one song on her album called “Don’t Lie To Me,” Streisand said it was a response to the president’s statements on the major issues facing the country.
