Singer John Legend Says He Didn't Want His Tax Cut

John Legend was in Washington to sing at the White House on Thursday but he didn't leave town without some advice for the politicians.

"People fought to give me - a millionaire - a tax cut this year," said Legend.

"I didn't need it. And all the other millionaires didn't need it either."

Legend said he would rather have paid more taxes to support community choirs and arts councils, which helped him growing up and are often the first thing to go when budgets get cut.

"I hope our politicians will not think that they are expendable and they can just get rid of them and nobody will feel the pain," he said. "Because I think society will feel the pain."

"I'm really frustrated with some of the discourse that's coming out of Washington."
