Tove Lo, an emerging star of the pop music world, is the type of artist who doesn’t take any crap. 

The Swedish singer, songwriter and frequent collaborator turned heads when she walked the red carpet at Australia’s ARIA Awards last November in Sydney wearing a “uterus” dress, then played a part in one of the evening's big music moments when she performed wth Flume on their hit “Say It.” 

She's turning heads again by unloading both barrels on Donald Trump and his vice president Mike Pence and their “f---ing dangerous” behavior in a new interview for Time Out.

“It amazes me that a man who can speak that way about women becomes someone that half the people in this country think should be running things,” she says in a teaser for the interview published online. “A dirty joke is all good but the way that he…especially Mike Pence, the way that he speaks about women, that we're not allowed to choose whether or not we should keep our baby. I'm hoping that after these four very interesting years there's gonna be a big change. We'll run it to the ground and build it back up with someone like Bernie [Sanders].”

Tove Lo has criticized Trump in the past. In one tweet last October she rolled with, “My fuel for tonight's gig was #trump rage. Grab em by the pussy I'll kick you in the face. And balls.”

The anger is still bubbling away. And, just days after Trump’s controversial immigration ban, it all pours out in her Time Out cover story. 

“I don't agree with a lot of things in in faiths—both in Christianity and in Islam," she says. "But I respect what they stand for. We should all be able to speak our minds. And as a President you can't wash out one group of people and say it's their fault. It's really f---ing dangerous.”
