After feeling outraged by the upcoming change at the White House, rock band U2 decided to lash out at Donald Trump. Unfortunately for them, after they emerged from their safe space with a ridiculous decision, their tantrum is backfiring as their own fans are the ones paying the price for their whining.
The rock band decided they had no choice but to make a decision that impacts their new album. Citing “breathing space” after experiencing something so traumatic they could hardly function, referring to Donald Trump’s election, the band is now considering massive changes.
U2 had written most of the songs for their Songs of Experience album, the follow-up to their 2014 platinum Songs of Innocence album, but the band said it needs to be revised because “the world is a different place.” They’re putting the album “on ice for a minute, just to really think about it one more time before putting it out, just to make sure that it really was what we wanted to say,” after the traumatic triggering they experienced when Trump was elected president.
You can’t even make this up. An Irish band is so concerned about the American presidential election that time will now be needed in safe spaces to reevaluate songs they have already written, which only punishes any fans who were looking forward to the album but now realize they will have to wait because the members of the rock group are overly emotional pansies lacking coping skills.
The band even admitted to perhaps altering songs in the new album to fully express their emotions about the world. Leave it liberals to assume we care about their wavering emotional instabilities, but this band is not only emotional distraught, they are also from Ireland, not the United States, so no one cares.
“We just went, ‘Hold on a second – we’ve got to give ourselves a moment to think about this record and about how it relates to what’s going on in the world,'” U2 guitarist The Edge told Rolling Stone. He said Trump’s election was “like a pendulum has suddenly just taken a huge swing in the other direction…Suddenly the world changed.”
The band needed “breathing space” to contemplate how an election in a country they don’t reside in affects their music. Leave it to millionaire celebrity liberals in other countries to get overly upset about an election they had no say in. Not only do most Americans not care, U2 has shown us just how emotionally sensitive they actually are by not being able to just move on with life. These celebrities don’t realize that they are literally paid to entertain us, not opine on political matters they know nothing about from their golden towers in other countries.
