Singer Charlotte Church Blasts Trump’s Inauguration Invite: You Should Have Known I Think You’re A Tyrant

USA Today reports:

With 10 days to go before Donald Trump’s inauguration, the entertainment roster is still sparse, with only Jackie Evancho, the Rockettes, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Talladega College Marching Tornadoes confirmed to perform. On Tuesday, British singers Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Church officially turned him down.

Church, a classical/pop singer from Wales who rose to fame with her version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Pie Jesu, tweeted at the president-elect wondering why his inaugural committee had even approached, given that “a simple Internet search would show I think you’re a tyrant.”

Meanwhile, Ferguson, the runner-up from the seventh season of Britain’s The X Factor, said she is officially not participating, given that the committee wouldn’t accommodate her one demand: that she be allowed to sing Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit. The song is a condemnation of the lynchings of African-Americans in the late 1930s, based on a poem by Abel Meeropol.

  • Tiger Quinn

    Okay, now I f*cking love her.

    • MichaelJ

      Somewhere there’s a great video of a her duet with Amy Winehouse singing “Beat It.”

    • CatApostrophe

      trump may not realize how many performers’ careers he’s launching and/or revitalizing. I remember Charlotte Church when she first debuted in…I wanna say like 2000ish? Haven’t thought of her much since then, but now I just might go revisit her music. Maybe this is what he meant by bringing jobs back…

  • Bared Bear

    Four poopie emojis are not enough for Trump.

  • Blake Jordan

    Kim Burrell has an open schedule…

    Or would the white supremacists not approve?

    • JVild

      They might literally start flinging their feces around the inauguration. Presidential!

    • kaydenpat

      Ms. Burrell better lay low.

  • JoeMyGod

    The poo emojis are a nice touch….

    • Rex

      Very classy and appropriate for the POS that is the main attraction.

        The POSOTUS

      • Jeffrey

        He’s just been upgraded to the PEEOTUS

    • Strepsi

      As is the request to sing “Strange Fruit” — brilliant song and brutal comment from Rebecca Ferguson on the racist GOP.

    • ChrisMorley

      We Brits have a reputation for politeness and waiting in line but our tolerance for entertaining fascists is very low and cheeto can expect the rudest of responses.

      Rebecca Ferguson gets bonus points for her excellent passive aggressive Strange Fruit snub.

    • kaydenpat

      And the poo looks shocked that Trump would even dare to ask Charlotte to sing at his coronation.

  • Anybody from the Lawrence Welk show still alive?

    • Butch

      Maybe they could just play some re-runs. They’re still around.

        • The Return of Traxley

          I saw a story on him a month ago. He farts dust and is a hateful shit. As he fades away, moee and more people are speaking out about what a real dick he’s been all his life, and that he hates kids IRL.

          Surprised I am not.

        Her OJ is sour. Now it matches her personality.

      • Snarkaholic

        Oh, so she’s finally given up on trying to locate her (hideous) stolen horsey garden statue?

        • Acronym Jim

          Did she look in the Brady family’s living room?

      The ones that are left are probably a little fragile to put outdoors in the cold.

  • bkmn

    Trump and his team think everyone should be bowing and kowtowing to him. Time for a reality check.

    • Gustav2

      When they kept saying everyone should be bowing and kowtowing to him after his election they should have had the smarts to know there would be a backlash.

      Wait, I said they should have had the smarts.

      • Nowhereman

        It reminds me a little about the lies leading up to the invasion of Iraq–“We’ll be greeted as lberators! The war will pay for itself!”

    • MattPS

      The next Tweet: “Ungrateful little bitch, didn’t even wish me luck. I don’t really want her at my show anyway. I hate opera. Loser!”

      • Ms Church’s choice of music is a bit “highbrow” for Cheetolini’s group.

    • Todd20036

      He likes to disrespect Hollywood, but begs them to like him.
      Boo fucking hoo

      • zhera

        The delicious thing about this is that Donnie boy lives for being admired and liked. It’s like oxygen to him. And now, every single day he’s told that people hate his guts.

        • Nowhereman

          Wait till he’s actually in office. (my stomach turns just saying that)

      • Nowhereman

        Oh now some of the really big star power likes him–like that guy who played Chachi…

        • Bob Schuhlein

          And our favorite anti-semite Mel Gibson….or Vnce Vaughn. Perhaps they could get up and read”The Cat In the Hat”—seems Republicans like that book!!!

    • Strepsi

      Also: they’re both from the UK — has the GOP really scraped the U.S. barrell clean?

      • That’s what I’ve been wondering. Surely there are has been, one hit wonder groups that would love to get up on a stage again?

        • Bob Schuhlein

          • Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a performer!

          • kareemachan

      • Craig Howell

        And what about all the country singers? I would think (though I’m no country fan) they would be clawing each other to death for the right to perform at the Inauguration.

        • Librarykid

          A friend told me that she has stopped watching Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show because her husband is performing at the inauguration.

      • Chris Baker

        Bringing in foreigners to do jobs that no American wants to do, I guess.

      • Michael White

        maybe he will bring in russians to perform

      • Nowhereman

        Not even Ted Nugent will sing. To be fair, they may not have asked the Motor City Madman, but I don’t see why not. He’s a perfect fit–“Jail Bait”, “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang”…

    • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Mike Pence saw her name & thought “Church” can’t say no to Tramp’s inauguration

      • Charlie

        Speaking of pence, Hillary received standing ovations from the audience on Broadway when she attended the closing night of ‘The Color Purple’ last Sunday. A far cry from the pence attendance for ‘Hamilton’. Wonder why chittolini hasn’t tweeted about Broadway audiences being stupid or something else that’s vulgar.

        • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          I’ve read about it too. Tramp’s busy fending off Meryl with his tiny fingers . I still can’t believe Hillary confirms going to that fucker’s inauguration .

          • Tiger Quinn

            You know, I was so pissed when I heard this, but now I think it’s brilliant – it’s a distraction from him, having her there. People will cheer for her. His followers will be pissed that she’s there. I don’t think he wanted her there at all because it takes the light off of him.

          • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            I think it’s degrading for her, after all she’s been thru. However, if she’s strong then yah, go for it. Now imagine she trips his ass on the steps …

    • Jerry

      And if it kills him that no one wants to perform for the inauguration, wait until an NCAA championship team refuses the customary visit to the WH…and it will happen. Can you imagine a women’s championship basketball team making the appearance?

  • JVild

    Ah, marvelous. We know he’s shameless, but public humiliation and dismissal will never not work on him. The turds really give it a nice ending.

    BTW, can we start a betting pool on when he’ll tweet a dismissive reply? My money is on somewhere around 4 PM ET.

    • CatApostrophe

      Can we make bingo cards for which of his favorite insults he’ll use?

      trump and his cronies may have won the election, thanks to a great deal of lying, cheating, and stealing, but they are finding out that they are losing badly in the court of public opinion, just as they did the popular vote. Whether that will be enough in itself is another question, but at least the next few years should be entertaining.

    • Bomer

      If it’s an installation can we install him in an underground bunker somewhere and seal it shut?

      • Maybe the Chinese can store him for us. Ya know, the same place they stashed Ai Wei Wei…..until the global outcry became an embarrassment. But we wouldn’t care if they kept him forever!

    • Mark

      I’m kinda surprised that some of the more right wing CW acts haven’t signed up. But then, I suppose that just because they are CW doesn’t mean they are stupid. They know a career killing gig when they see it. (The giveaway is that it is orange and hairless.)

    • zhera

      I wonder if all the inauguration balls have managed to book artists… Aren’t there supposed to be like, hundreds of balls in DC that night?

      • TuuxKabin

        There used to be alternative inauguration balls as well, the GOP when the DEMS won, and DEMS when the GOP won. Went to one alternative inauguration ball with Poppy Bush’s win.

        Ryan Reynolds amd Ryan Gosling are both Canadian ans have been in a good-natured competition for the most popular Ryan for a while now.

        When Ryan Gosling went up to receive his award for LaLaLand, Ryan Reynolds tried to draw attention away from him as a joke by smooching Andrew Garfield — who’s known for his role as Spiderman….and other things.

        Yes, I would. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7dc441de84a3b1d9c4ba07281f1e7af0c087b6c391c196846f5ff3766d6d5a68.jpg

      WTF does that have to do with anything? Have you ever considered NOT bringing your political BS into every situation?

      • pch1013

        The official RWNJ response to Meryl’s brilliant speech was to deflect to the standing O that she gave to Roman Polanski 12 years ago.

        If you are so averse to political BS, why are you commenting on a political post?

        • greenmanTN

          Beause I can pick and choose between what stories I like.

          Am I supposed to believe that you have insightful, indepth knowledge of every corner of the globe or are you just as limited as the rest of us and spewing distractions and bullshit?

          And who are you to question my polical beliefs or my commitment to them anyway?

          And WTF does Roman Polanski have to do with it?

        • greenmanTN

          Because I will read and post about about any topic I damn well please. Reading over your comment again I see that I probably misunderstood your intent before, and for that I am sorry. I initially thought you were bringing up Polanski as a way to discredit Meryl Streep. I try not to get things wrong but sometimes I do.

          My comment was based more on comments elsewhere than JMG, where even a cute pet story somehow becomes a source of political gripes, or people bring up issues that are at best tangentially related (such as Ms Streep’s alleged support of Polanski) rather than discuss the issue at hand in an effort to derail the conversation.

    Any entertainer who wants to have an iota of career left is best not to be associate with the ceremony of crowning a piece of turd regardless what political leaning he or she has.

  • Bill_Perdue

    Trump is going to do what HRH HRC would have done and what Obama did do – ignore killer cops, engage in wars of aggression, bust unions, fight the socialist inspired movement for decent wages, promote the degradation of the environment, oppose ENDA and shred the Bill of Rights.

    Trump is not a fascist, just a run of the mill Democrat-Republican. And he’s a Bonapartist. “Bonapartism … the term was used more generally for a political movement that advocated a dictatorship or authoritarian centralized state, with a strongman charismatic leader based on anti-elitist rhetoric, army support, and conservatism.” wiki

    “What Trump will certainly do

    First of all, he will be the “law and order” president. He will increase police power to keep a lid on the Black and Latino communities. There will be no more federal oversight (already weak) of police violence in these communities. There will be no rollback of the “War on Drugs” or mass incarceration; instead these will be stepped up. The stocks of private prison companies jumped immediately following Trump’s election. There will be further militarization of the police.

    He will increase already massive border control with Mexico, but not Canada. The massive deportations under Deporter in Chief Obama will be greatly stepped up.

    Military spending will significantly increase. The US arsenal of nuclear weapons, already being “modernized” by Obama at the cost of around $1 trillion, will increase.

    He will prevent under one formula or another most Muslims from immigrating to the US, including millions of desperate refugees from Washington’s wars against Arab countries.

    Big tax cuts for the rich are certain. Regulations on the financial firms will be relaxed. Regulations on oil, coal and natural gas including on fracking will be abolished or made inconsequential (this is the real content of Trump’s climate change denial), as will regulations of other industries, including banks and other financial concerns. The stock market soared after the election in anticipation.

    He and the Republican Congress will move to repeal Obamacare, but what they will replace it with is uncertain. Trump and Republican politicians fear a backlash if too many face cutoffs of their health insurance or rapid increases in costs.http://links.org.au/rise-trumpism-would-be-bonaparte

      Oh right, that’s why I had you blocked.

      • Bill_Perdue

        Rightists like you block leftists because we expose your corrupt and bankrupt support for racism and wars of aggression.

  • Nowhereman

    So no Americans want to sing and dance for The Donald? Sad! And funny as hell.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      No Brits either.

  • Blake Mason

    Kim Burrell is looking for work…. Joe – Did you see a go fund me page has been set up for her…?

    • Bj Lincoln

      Go fund me really needs to tighten up their requirements. Setting up a page for a racist who got caught and is losing her jobs should NOT be. It is her own fault and not the fault of those who are letting her go.

    • barrixines

      I think if you look at it, it’s quite clear it’s been set up to take the piss out of her.

  • Blake Mason

    Bet $1… the committee read the name Church and thought she was a Trump supporter.

  • Blake Mason

    Why didn’t he have the USA Freedom Girls perform? OH yeah… he has an outstanding bill with them…

      I could not believe the RNC hired them to open the convention. I’m guessing they didn’t do an internet search then either.

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        What do you mean?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Excellent. The more refusals come in, the more Trumplethinskin gets pissed. At this rate, between the continued embarrassments, the mockery and the sheer volume of ridicule sending his blood pressure through the roof, not to mention the copious amount of coke needed to keep him going, the aneurysm might arrive on schedule….good….good.

    “…Jackie Evancho, the Rockettes, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Talladega College Marching Tornadoes…”

    Is this a Presidential Inauguration or a matinee in Branson?

    • Tiger Quinn

      It’s a Carnival Cruise medley at this point.

    • William

      Inaugural tornado, that would work.

    • Lars Littlefield

      No Osmonds?

      • Piona O.

        Where’s Wayne Newton?

  • Crow on a Top Hat

    After all that spectacle, why is Kanye not performing?

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Trump heard Kanye plans to run for president in 2020.
      Trump: “Kanye, you’re fired!”

  • William
    • Lars Littlefield

      Do they know any polkas?

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    She is sweet but she needs to drop the amplification.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Sooo…the Trumpanzees won’t condemn lynching by allowing Ferguson to sing “Strange Fruit.” Not that this surprises me, but an opposition with a backbone would broadcast this.

  • kaydenpat

    Woot woot!! Go Charlotte! Have always loved her. Trump and his team must be getting desperate to be reaching out to so many foreigners.

  • charemor

    I remember when she sang at Dubya’s inauguration. Someone asked her what she thought of him and she said she thought he was rather dumb. He asked where she was from and when she said “Wales”, he asked “and what state is that in?”

  • Treant

    Perhaps the folk sounds of Peter and Glenn? Not that they’d sing for the tyrant, either.
