There is a tradition of American Presidential inaugurations attracting the greatest American artists to perform. Previous inaugurations have featured such national musical icons as Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Aretha Franklin.
Following in this tradition, Donald Trump has invited a host of American superstars to sing at his inauguration - Elton John, Celine Dion, and Andrea Bocelli. Oh, hold on a minute...
Never mind, they've all reportedly declined the invitation anyway, though Trump has secured a couple of other American icons (and even some of the Rockettes are said to be unhappy about it). I guess those sneaky Limeys, Canucks and Eyeties just don't want America to be great again.
(And whatever possessed whoever in Trump's team thought of asking Elton John, given the incoming Vice President's well-documented homophobia?) Reportedly he may instead play at an alternative "not my president" concert in Miami.
Anyway, here's wishing a Merry Christmas to all my readers!
