Kanye West Will Not Be Performing At BFF Donald Trump’s Inauguration

As the the days slip slowly closer to January 20, the United States is preparing to bid farewell to Barack Obama, and welcome their new President, Donald J Trump. It’s a big, big deal. Already groups are lining up to protest the new representative of the Union, and in case you have been living under a rock, there are scandals galore doing the rounds since the road to this day first began.

Even artists are making a fuss about The Donald. Many were invited to perform at the Presidential Inauguration taking place on January 20, but majority have refused, and even took to their respective social media accounts to publicly mock the man. At the moment, only a handful are willing to join in, and most of us haven’t even heard of their names before.

One question was raised though, about his staunch supporter: Kanye West. The self-professed “rock star” has openly shown his approval of the new President, and even went to visit him at Trump Tower in New York, with a whole bunch of paparazzi in tow to catch a glimmer of that golden moment. Where is he now, though? True, last year he suffered a mental breakdown and all that, but shouldn’t he be taking this opportunity to support his man? Apparently not. And it’s not because he turned it down. It’s the other way round.


Donald J Trump and Kanye West famously met at the former’s gold-plated residence in New York. Between their facial expressions, who do you think is more pumped about the meeting?

A spokesperson for Donald Trump’s inauguration committee told CNN that Kanye was indeed not invited to perform at the event. Why not?! ”Ye’s music wasn’t right for the ‘typically and traditionally American event’.” Tom Barrack, chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee spoke with a CNN representative.  He said, “He’s been great. he considers himself a friend of the President-elect, but it’s not the venue. It’s going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy, we just haven’t asked him to perform. And we move on with our agenda.”

How would you feel if you were snubbed by your BFF during their moment of glory?! Maybe Trump wants to be the center of attention at this one, and would rather prefer it if a loud-mouth like Pablo skip the event entirely. Donald J Trump will be inaugurated as the next President of the United States on January 20, 2017.
