The inauguration of the US president-elect is scheduled for January 2017 and top American singers who are supposed to perform at the inauguration of the Apprentice reality star, are seriously begging off.
It has been reported that American singers are afraid to perform at Donald Trump’s Inauguration over the fear of potential disaffection from fans.
In a recent report by TMZ, some singers are scared of the potential negative impact on their careers if they perform for US President-Elect, Donald Trump, at his inauguration in 2017.
They went ahead to claim that even Celine Dion said she couldn’t perform at the inauguration because she already had other engagements to perform at that time.
According to the report, ‘There’s a secret scare in the music world over Donald Trump’s inauguration … some singers and bands want to perform but they’re getting cold feet because they’re worried it will hurt their career.
‘Sources in the music industry connected with people who have been “on the list” tell us … some of the singers and groups have floated rumors they might perform to judge the public reaction … which by and large has scared them into running for the hills instead of towards the Hill.
‘We’re told trial balloons were floated by at least 4 camps … we’re told everyone’s so scared of the backlash the camps will never admit they’ve even entertained the prospect of singing at Donald Trump’s inauguration … they’re all so worried it will negatively impact the artists’ careers.
‘It’s a sea change from every other inauguration. Up until now, it didn’t matter if it was a Dem or a Republican … there were enough big stars willing to perform it wasn’t a problem.
Meanwhile, The President-elect Donald Trump is not taken the issue lightly as he took to his twitter handle to clap back at the “A” list American celebrities who have decided to boycott performing at his inauguration. See what he tweeted below.
