US electronic musician and DJ Moby, who called Donald Trump an ‘actual sociopath’ in an op-ed piece he penned for Rolling Stone last year, has turned down an inexplicable offer to DJ at one of Trump’s inauguration ball.
The artiste revealed on Instagram that a booking agent approached him recently to see whether he would be open to providing music for an inauguration event, despite Moby’s well-known support of Hillary Clinton and distaste for Trump.
“Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider djing at one of the inaugural balls for #trump…,” Moby wrote. “Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really? I guess I’d DJ at an inaugural ball if as payment #trump released his tax returns… So #trump what do you think, I DJ for you and you release your tax returns?”
Trump’s inauguration team is having difficulty drawing A-list talent for the January 20 event, with only the Rockettes (begrudgingly), the Mormon Tabernacle Church Choir (also reluctantly), Big Rich and America’s Got Talent singer Jackie Evancho signing up for the inauguration.
Moby is in good company to be denying the offer, as a number of stars of the music industry have turned down an offer to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration Ball, including Sir Elton John, Kiss, Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Church.
