Report: No Celebrities Want To Perform At Donald Trump’s Inauguration
A new report claims that Donald Trump’s team is struggling to find top musical talent to perform at his inauguration.
According to The Wrap, two sources who said they have direct knowledge of negotiations between the president-elect’s inaugural committee and A-list Hollywood performers claim that no stars have said they are willing to perform yet.
One of the unnamed sources said Trump would not be able to deliver talent for next month’s presidential inauguration — “not even for a billion dollars.”
“They are willing to pay anything,” one of the sources said.
Trump Presidential Inaugural Committee spokesman Boris Epshteyn denied the claims
“No one with any official position at, or official relationship with, the Presidential Inaugural Committee, is engaging in the conduct described,” Epshteyn said. “We are focused on organizing an exciting and uniting celebration of freedom and democracy while following all rules, regulations and appropriate standards of conduct.”
After celebrities like Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen played free shows for Hillary Clinton in the during the final week of her campaign, Trump told his supporters in Florida he didn’t “need them.”
“We don’t need Jay Z to fill up arenas,” he said.
“We do it the old fashion way. We fill them up because you love what we’re saying and you want to Make America Great Again. That’s about it.”
