This is the most wonderful thing we've heard all week.
The Wrap is reporting that Donald Trump's transition team is desperate to get an A-list star to perform at next month's inauguration — but that nobody is willing to do it, no doubt in large part to how detested The Donald is among celebs and entertainers!

Speaking anonymously, a source from Trump's Presidential Inauguration Committee confirmed that the group is hoping "to do better than Kid Rock and Ted Nugent," and added:
"They are willing to pay anything. They told me, ‘We'll pay their fees.' Most of these artists' fees are in the six to seven figures."
The President-elect allegedly is hoping for high-level talent, something "like Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars," for the show, but good luck!!
For their part, at least publicly, an official speaking on the record for the inaugural committee denied the report, though.

Spokesman Boris Epshteyn said:
"No one with any official position at, or official relationship with, the Presidential Inaugural Committee is engaging in the conduct described. We are focused on organizing an exciting and uniting celebration of freedom and democracy while following all rules, regulations and appropriate standards of conduct."
For what it's worth, in 2012 after his re-election, Barack Obama had Beyoncé sing the National Anthem, and James Taylor played America The Beautiful.
You deserve all of this, Trump!!
