Bristol Palin has called out a number of musicians as "sissies" for refusing to perform Jan. 20 at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.
In a post to her personal blog Wednesday, Palin lists 11 A-list artists who are skipping the inauguration "for fear of backlash or to stand against him (Trump) politically."
The following is an excerpt from the post:
"If Donald Trump were still just a regular old billionaire and threw a party at Trump Tower in New York City, celebrities would be lined up out the door, and the most famous artists would be pining for a chance to perform. But because he will be inaugurated as the next Republican president in January, these same mega-celebrities, who would normally drool over an invitation to sing for the president, want no part of it."
According to Palin, the following musicians wanted no part of the inauguration: Elton John, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, The Chainsmokers, Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Aretha Franklin, David Foster and KISS.
"Isn't it amazing how 'not cool' it is to be conservative in the public eye? Either Hollywood is that far off – or we have so many sissies we have [sic] in the spot light too scared to stand for what they believe in!"
Currently scheduled to perform Jan. 20 are Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the New York City Rockettes, though several members of the dance troupe are not happy about having to perform for Trump.
