Hollywood Now Claims It Will Survive Trump’s Presidency [VIDEO]
Celebrities are now putting on a good face and claim they “will survive” the presidency of Donald Trump.
On Thursday, a video by W magazine was released featuring such big-name hollywood performers as Amy Adams, Matthew McConaughey, Emma Stone, Chris Pine, Taraji P. Henson and others singing the lyrics to Gloria Gaynor’s 1979 hit “I Will Survive,” just days before the president-elect is sworn into office.
Along with the video an article from the magazine, according to The Hill, said that the song is now “an anthem” about the Trump presidency.
“While the song has long been interpreted through a socially conscious lens, it’s the kind of anthem we need now more than ever with the inauguration bearing down on us,” the article read. “With an impending Donald Trump presidency, I will survive.”
Adding that the “dramatic interpretation is just the antidote for a still-grieving Hollywood, many members of which were outspoken Hillary Clinton supporters over the past year — and a few of whom have found themselves on the unfriendly end of Donald Trump’s Twitter account.”
During the one minute and thirty-five second video the stars take turns with the song’s lyrics. At one point one of the performers said, “I’m not sure that I will survive, but that’s what we’re gonna do.”
The description included on the YouTube link also mentions Trump’s inauguration in connection with the video.
