Watch Jennifer Holliday Try To Defend Performing At Donald Trump's Inauguration AND Canceling On The View

no title

For someone so talented, she sure is tone deaf…

Jennifer Holliday may be both a black woman and a gay icon, but that didn't stop her from originally agreeing to perform for Donald Trump and his merry band of bigots at his inauguration this Friday.

Luckily for the original Dreamgirl, the Internet QUICKLY set her straight about how bad an idea that was given the President-elect's blatant history of racism, sexism, and homophobia — so now she's making her media rounds to share her side of the story!

Unfortunately for her, though… it's not helping.

The Tony and Grammy-winner stopped by The View Tuesday morning to discuss both her initial booking and subsequent cancelation, much to the confusion of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Jedediah Bila, and Sara Haines.

Seriously — Jennifer's excuse for even taking the job in the first place was she wasn't aware of America's current social climate, saying:

Are Performers' Record Labels To Blame For Donald Trump's Miserable Inauguration Lineup?!

no title

It's official now that Toby Keith and Three Doors Down have booked themselves gigs performing at Donald Trump's inauguration (uh… congrats?), but there just aren't that many other performers willing to step up for the Prez-elect!

And after Jennifer Holliday very publicly backed off in an open letter published earlier today… is something deeper going on here??

Donald Trump Is Reportedly Having Such Trouble Getting People To His Inauguration That He Is Paying Seat-Fillers To Be At The Event!

no title

We know Donald Trump is already a historically unpopular President-elect, but is he SO undesirable that nobody wants to come to his inauguration?!

According to some reports out this week, that just might be the case — and The Donald is resorting to shelling out money to seat-fillers to be sure there's a full house when he's sworn in next Friday!!

Donald Trump's Inauguration Will Have LESS Attendees Than Barack Obama's!

Sorry Donald Trump! Barack Obama comes out on top!

On January 20, the controversial President-elect will have his inauguration where he will begin his four-year term. But how many people are expected to show up to the ceremony??

It depends who you ask!

According to the inauguration planners, they are expecting around 900,000 people at the National Mall. On the other hand, The D.C. Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is planning for 800K to 900K, while The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Activities (JCCIC) expects 700K to 750K.

The biggest estimate comes from Destination D.C. who is anticipating one million people, including protestors.

Regardless of which number is most accurate, Trump's swearing-in ceremony will most likely attract less people than Barack Obama's. In 2009, Barry's event gathered 1.8 million, while his 2013 inauguration drew around one million.

However, these figures are simply estimates, and you should be wary of anything you read. According to Arizona State University professor Steve Doig:

"Take any estimate with a grain of salt… What you need to do is look carefully at how the estimate was done and how transparent the group who did it is about their methods."

Either way, Obama is still the man of the people!

The Porta-Potties At Donald Trump's Inauguration Are Being Censored — Find Out Why!

no title

When it rains, it pours.

Donald Trump already had one bathroom-based scandal this week, so what could No. 2 possibly hurt?

In a bizarre case of coincidence, the porta-potties that are being used for the President-elect's inauguration next week are currently getting their brand name censored.

No, it has nothing to do with Donald's golden shower controversy… but it's just as unbelievable.

Apparently, Trump's team has been covering up the already-installed portable toilets' logos with blue tape due to the company's name —

R. Kelly Is Flushing Those Donald Trump Inauguration Performance Rumors Down The Toilet!

no title

We aren't sure if you gathered this from Trapped In The Closet parts 1 through 47,000, but R. Kelly is not one to be f*cked with.

Rumors recently ran rampant that the 50-year-old would be pretty much the only actual celebrity performing at Donald Trump's inauguration.

Donald Trump Officially Gives Up On Getting A-List Inauguration Acts — Toby Keith, Jon Voight, & More Just Announced!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikDonald TrumpTwitter

no title

If this is his definition of HUGE… we're no longer scared about that wall.

As if we needed more reasons to not attend Donald Trump's inauguration on January 20, the racist Republican's camp finally started sharing the official line-up this week — and the performers sound just as miserable as his Cabinet!

In addition to previously announced acts Paul Anka, Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and (at least some of) The Rockettes, on Friday rockers 3 Doors Down, God Bless the USA panderer singer Lee Greenwood, and the long-expected Toby Keith were added to the list.

Not exactly the A-list anymore, but least we've actually heard of them

However, absolutely no one will be able to top Trump's most famous get: Jon Voight (Yes. That Jon Voight).

It's unclear exactly what he'll be performing, but we hope his audience likes disparaging remarks about Angelina Jolie!! Oh, wait, they probably do…

Unfortunately, original Dreamgirl Jennifer Holliday is also going against her Broadway family's wishes by performing for the alleged golden shower enthusiast.

With just seven days left until the inauguration, who do U think will be announced next??
