Chicago Tribune reports that rapper Kanye West was not invited to Donald Trump’s inauguration to perform because he’s not “traditionally American” enough.
Chairman of the Presidenrial Inauguration Committee made a statement:
“(Kanye) been great. He considers himself a friend of the president-elect, but it’s not the venue. The venue we have for entertainment is filled out. It’s perfect. It’s going to be typically and traditionally American”
West had backlash from fans when he said he would have voted for Trump and then visiting Trump after he won election.
The list of performers are Toby Keith, DJ Ravi Drums, Frontmen of Country and Chrisette Michelle who took Jennifer Hudson’s spot.
