Inauguration blues: Why pop stars won't play for Trump

From the BBC.

Reports from the US suggest Donald Trump is struggling to find A-list stars to perform at his inauguration. We asked the stars of the BBC Music Awards what it would take to get them to play.

When President Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009, he was serenaded by Beyonce and Aretha Franklin.

During his stay in the White House, he's had audiences with the likes of Rihanna, James Taylor and Kendrick Lamar.

Donald Trump might not be so lucky.

According to US news website The Wrap, Trump's inaugural committee is scrambling to find stars who are willing to play at his swearing in ceremony on 20 January 2017.


"They're calling managers, agents, everyone in town to see who they can get and it's been problematic," an unnamed source told the site.

Grammy-winner John Legend, who has been a guest of the Obamas several times, says he is "not surprised at all".

"Creative people tend to reject bigotry and hate," he told the BBC.

16. He's one of the few mentioned in the article, and perhaps Rick Astley, but not Elton John.

Despite their reservations, Trump's campaign appeared to have scored a victory last month, when they announced one A-list star would be taking part in the celebrations.

"Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the mall," said Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the presidential inaugural committee, claiming that Mr Trump would be the first president to enter the White House with a pro-gay stance.

But almost as soon as the comments were made, Sir Elton issued a strongly-worded rebuttal.

"Incorrect. He will NOT be performing," wrote his publicist, making liberal use of the caps lock key. "There is no truth in this at all."

Since then, the names bandied around have been much lower-profile - from rap-rock rascal Kid Rock to Achy Breaky country star Billy Ray Cyrus.

However, The Wrap claims Trump's team is still holding out for a Bruno Mars or Justin Timberlake. The situation has become so critical that they are allegedly breaking with protocol to offer artists an appearance fee.

"They are willing to pay anything," said their source, suggesting that a six-figure sum would be within reach.

Rick Astley, the 80s pop legend who is currently enjoying an unexpected career resurgence, is less forthright.

"Depends how big the cheque was!" he laughs, before expressing reservations about Trump's presidency.

I hope any artists who agree to play for Trump demand cash in advance. Trump's history suggests that otherwise they will not be paid.

He actually supported Carter early on. It's been a sharp right turn ever since.

I can't even figure out Ray Stevens. Maybe he was always that way and didn't start getting political until after 9-11.😠

Then surprise surprise, a few years later.

Pop mogul Jonathan King was today sentenced to seven years in prison after being convicted of molesting schoolboys.
Judge David Paget told a pale and shaken King that he had used his position in the pop world to seduce young boys.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/seth-macfarlane-breaks-down-why-most-of-hollywood-hates-trump_us_5841b9b8e4b09e21702e5c5c

"We live and work amongst his kind every day here. His tactics are those employed by the shiftiest of agents, lawyers, and publicists,” the actor said in a long note. “We’ve learned to recognize the blustery showmanship of a lying con man because we encounter it every day in our business.”

But as MacFarlane went on to explain, it’s important not to confuse Hollywood’s dislike for Trump with a lack of patriotism.

“Most of us love America a hell of a lot, and we don’t want America to be conned the way many of us have ourselves,” he wrote. “Trump is not of the People. Trump is of Hollywood. And that is the problem.”

64. Like they did with Kate Bush.

And she just praised Theresa May, who's not too bad as far as evil Tories go.

Kate Bush has shocked fans by saying that she ‘really likes’ Tory Prime Minister Theresa May.

The iconic British musician, 58, faced a social media backlash on Tuesday after admitting that she thinks the new PM is the ‘best thing that’s happened’ to the UK in a long time.

“We have a female prime minister here in the UK. I actually really like her and think she’s wonderful,” she told Canadian magazine Macleans.

69. If I was an A list performer,I wouldn't want to be associated with

The inauguration of fascism and the death of democracy...for the rest of my life.

Besides, it would be a career death knell. How would you ever be able to look at any poc in the entertainment industry again?

81. In Hell maybe

Ian Donaldson died in 1993.

They're not proper skinheads anyway. The skinhead movement is a fusion of Jamaican and British music, it's message is inclusive and anti racist. There's still a lot of genuine skinheads about who are very active in the anti fascist movement.
