14 entertainers who turned down performing at Trump’s inauguration

    Top Naija brings you the A Listers who’ve ruled out performing at Donald Trump’s Inauguration balls?

    For his part, Trump denies that he cares. After stories circulated that top names were refusing to perform at his January 20 inauguration, Trump tweeted last year that he preferred to party with ‘the people.’

    Here’s the list:

    Celine Dion

    It’s hard to see Trump asking because Perry performed for Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.

    British singer Rebecca did consider Trump’s alleged offer but only on one condition – that she be allowed to sing ‘Strange Fruit’ – ‘a song that has huge historical importance, a song that was blacklisted in the United States for being too controversial.’

    If the Chicks were critical of former President George W. Bush there was no way they were going to perform for Trump, but their manager Simon Renshaw cleared up any lingering rumours by admitting it would be the last cheque any one gets if they say yes.
