A massive crowd of protestors supporting Trump violently clashes with law enforcement yesterday storming the US Capitol and sending the building into lockdown. The chaos came amid the vote from lawmakers to certify Joe Biden’s presidential victory. Amid the turmoil, a number of celebrities have taken to Twitter to share outrage, embarrassment and shock over the state of the country. Pink said she was ashamed and called it a sad day for America. Sara Bareilles called it insane, beyond dangerous, pathetic and completely desperate. And so many more I could go on pretty much the rest of the day.
(19) P!nk on Twitter: “As a United States Citizen, and the daughter of two veterans, and the sister of another, I am ashamed of what is happening in Washington. Hypocrisy, shame, Embarrassment. Unpatriotic hypocritical sheep drinking poison Kool aid. This a sad day for America.” / Twitter
(19) Sara Bareilles on Twitter: “This is insane. Trump’s wreckless negligence and insistence on an alternate reality has built a real one in front of our eyes. This is beyond dangerous, pathetic and completely desperate. It’s not powerful to “rage” against the TRUTH. It’s anarchistic chaos. GROW THE FUCK UP.” / Twitter
(19) John Legend on Twitter: “Anyone who voted for this tragic shitty narcissist mess of a president bears responsibility for this debacle today. He has shown you exactly who he was all along. You still supported him. You are complicit in the attempted destruction of the country. You are not a patriot.” / Twitter

It makes me sad to believe how naïve I was to think this couldn’t possibly happen and yet it did. This cannot happen anymore. I’m angry, embarrassed and ashamed. I’m in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy.
