Let’s keep it real.

Despite what the President-elect claims, Donald Trump is having a tough time finding talent willing to perform for him in the inauguration.

EW has compiled a list of artists who denied the opportunity to perform. This includes Kanye West (who reportedly didn’t even get an invitation), R. Kelly, KISS, and more are on the list.

According to the New York Daily News, Chrisette Michele has reportedly agreed although there has not been an official confirmation.

Singer Chrisette Michele will join the party ushering in Trump’s presidency, according to sources close to the festivities.

We’re told the deal was reached a week ago, but has been kept “a big secret” because Michele’s camp feared the seven days of criticism that would surely lead up the divisive President-elect’s big day. They became especially concerned when Jennifer Holliday, who’d committed to performing for PEOTUS last week, withdrew amidst heavy pressure on Monday, citing “a lapse of judgment.”

Our insiders say inauguration organizers first reached out to Michele’s team asking her to perform the song “Intentional” with singers Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds and Tye Tribbett — the same trio with whom she did that tune on BET’s “Celebration of Gospel” broadcast one year ago. We’re told that plan fell apart when at least two of those three singers declined the offer. But, according to our sources, Michele agreed to sing for the Prez so long as she could perform an R&B set.

The backlash is so crazy even Questlove from The Roots decided to give his two cents.


Interesting. Since the report social media has gone into a frenzy about her decision. See some of the reactions below.
