Nothing is worst than throwing party and no-one wants to come. Donald Trump is known for attracting big talent. But it seems since he was elected President of the United States, his star popularity has faded with allegedly no-one of great public stature wanting to perform at the future commander-in-chief’s inauguration in January.
Usually most A-list artists would jump at the opportunity to be part of such a historic event. In the past artists like Beyonce and Aretha Franklin have performed forgoing their normal appearance fees reportedly only being paid in production and travel expenses. Allegedly Trump’s team are throwing large sums of money at trying to secure someone like “Justin Timberlake or Bruno Mars.”
Unfortunately for Trump, but the potential takers seem far and few between.
“They are willing to pay anything,” a source told TheWrap. “They told me, ‘We’ll pay their fees.’ Most of these artists’ fees are in the six to seven figures.”
“Name your price,” a Trump negotiator reportedly said. However, it seems for the first time in Trump’s life, all the money in the world can’t buy his happiness.
Previously, Vince Neil of Motley Crue was tipped to perform (minus the rest of the Crue), but his invitation was apparently rescinded once Trump won the election. There were reports that Elton John would be performing, but was swiftly denied by his representatives. As January draws closer the list of who won’t be performing grows larger than the list of who will be.
Maybe Trump needs to buy this book…
Which A-List will sell their soul to perform at the inauguration? Only time will tell. Poor Trump.
I suppose if you piss enough people off, you’re bound to end up feeling like a very lonely man.
