Taylor Swift said U.S. President Donald Trump probably thinks of the U.S. as an “autocracy” and that she has become disillusioned with the state of American politics in an interview with British newspaper The Guardian.

泰勒·斯威夫特在接受英国报纸《卫报》采访时说美国总统唐纳德·特朗普可能是把美国看作 “专制国家”了,并且她对美国的政治现状大失所望。

The criticism of the president is unusually pointed for the singer, who for years declined to publicize her political beliefs.

对这位歌手来说这样批评总统真是异常犀利,多年来她都拒绝公开政治立场。

She now says she regrets remaining quiet during the 2016 presidential election, and that she would have endorsed Hillary Clinton.

现在她说她后悔在2016年总统大选期间保持沉默,她当时本该支持希拉里·克林顿的。

“The things that happen to you in your life are what develop your political opinions. I was living in this Obama eight-year paradise of, you go, you cast your vote, the person you vote for wins, everyone's happy!” she said. “This whole thing, the last three, four years, it completely blindsided a lot of us, me included.”

她说:“生活中发生的事会催生你的政治观点,我过去生活在奥巴马执政八年的天堂里,当时的情况是你去了,你投票了,你支持的人就获胜了,皆大欢喜!过去的三四年对我们很多人来说都是重大打击,也包括我自己。”

Swift has long been subdued about speaking on political issues. She told The Guardian it was because she started her career in country music, where she said she was told to remain quiet on the topic.

霉霉一直避谈政治问题,她对《卫报》说这是因为她的事业开始于乡村音乐,在这个领域她被告知对这个话题要保持沉默。

That changed last year when the pop star endorsed two Democratic candidates in Tennessee, which caused voter registration in the state to spike, according to the newspaper.

据《卫报》报道,去年情况发生了变化,当时这位流行歌星公开支持田纳西州的两位民主党候选人,导致该州选民登记人数激增。

Swift said she changed her mind after she became embroiled in a lawsuit with a DJ she said sexually assaulted her.

她说她是在控告一个DJ对她性骚扰之后改变主意的。

He sued her for making the claim, and she counter-sued for $1 and won after a 2017 trial.

对方因此起诉她,她反起诉要求对方赔偿1美元,并在2017年审判后赢了官司。

Additionally, Swift she realized she needed to make her stance more public after a friend questioned her on LGBT issues.

此外,一个朋友就LGBT群体问题对她提出质疑,此后霉霉就意识到她需要更加公开表明立场。

Swift included a song on LGBT rights on her album “Lover” which was released Friday. She also started a petition urging people to support legislation aimed against employment discrimination on the basis of sexuality. She said she will continue efforts to impede Trump’s chances of being re-elected next year.

霉霉周五发行的专辑《Lover》中有一首关于LGBT群体权利的歌。她还发起了一个请愿活动,敦促人们支持旨在反对就业中的性别歧视的立法。她说她将继续努力去降低特朗普明年连任的可能性。
