Well, it had to happen eventually.

While President Barack Obama was busy giving his BFF Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump was off finally finding a famous friend of his own!

That's because it was just announced that Paul Anka will reportedly be the headlining act at the impending apocalypse inauguration on January 20.

The Canadian-born crooner will join previously announced performers Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and (at least some of) The Rockettes for the Washington, D.C.-based event next week — that is, as long as the White House doesn't get moved to New York City before then!

According to a Radar source, the 75-year-old music legend will be performing the song he wrote for Frank Sinatra, My Way, for Trump and his Conservative constituents. Although, we're also hearing Paul's planning on rewriting the lyrics to

The Rockettes' Male Manager Encourages Dancers To 'Tolerate Intolerance' By Performing At Donald Trump's Inauguration!

no title

UPDATE 3:44 P.M. EST: The Madison Square Garden Company responded to Marie Claire's article with the following statement:

"This is one person who continues to attempt to represent the entire team of Rockettes. This time it's in a story that is the result of an unauthorized recording that violated the confidentiality of all of her sister Rockettes. While Mr. Dolan stands behind everything he said during the meeting, no one in that room believed they were speaking publicly. Everyone in the meeting had the chance to speak their mind in a safe setting, and many did. Her secret recording was deceitful and cowardly and has betrayed all of her fellow Rockettes. Posting this story is beneath the ethical standards of Hearst. We are deeply disappointed in their decision to post this story."

Do YOU think recording the meeting was "cowardly"?


Though the Radio City Rockettes will be smiling, just know their upcoming inaugural performance is a real kick in the head.

Management of the dance troupe has stated that individual Rockettes may opt out of the group's performance during Donald Trump's inauguration this month after multiple dancers expressed unwillingness to perform for the polarizing politician.

Backstage, however, management is reportedly tapping to a different tune and has encouraged dancers to "tolerate" the backlash the company has received since their announcement, because they don't really have a choice!

According to a report from Marie Claire, manager James Dolan recently called a private meeting with the dance company amid the controversy and told them to suck it up — and no, he wasn't talking about their performance posture!

After one dancer told Dolan it sounded like he was asking them "to be tolerant of intolerance," the Madison Square Garden executive chairman reportedly replied:

Donald Trump *Could* Get Someone Big For His Inauguration… If Only They Weren't All Scared Of Being Blackballed!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikDonald TrumpControversy

no title

This is music to our ears!

Believe it or not, there are only 28 days remaining until Donald Trump takes office — and yet his camp is STILL struggling to find musicians willing to perform at his inauguration.

While the racist Republican has managed to book America's Got Talent winner Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and — much to their displeasureThe Rockettes to lend their talents so far, there's noticeably no A-Listers in that select group.

Well, we're hearing that's actually because any musician who would feel comfortable singing for the sexist is fearful for their careers!

According to a TMZ report out Friday, four Hollywood heavy-hitters have toyed with the idea of performing at the inauguration… but are scared of getting blackballed by their peers!

In fact, the website says the acts have even started their own rumors to soften the blow, and the negative backlash would still be too much to take! But hey, at least you'll probably gain a bunch more KKK fans…

Who do U think are the four who considered it? And who will be the first major musician to agree to Trump's demands??

Rockette Phoebe Pearl took to to Instagram on Thursday to publicly exclaim she was "embarrassed and disappointed" by the decision.

The performer shared a shot of herself onstage with her fellow Rockettes, doodling a talk bubble from her mouth that says:

"Not my President!"
