Fans of Kanye West were scratching their heads after the rapper showed support to Donald Trump but his allegiance wasn’t enough to get him an invite to perform at the Inauguration.

    1. Don’t be surprised if Kanye does end up performing and they lied about him not being invited just so he wouldn’t get dragged. Not all the performers will be announced. Some will be surprise performers.

  1. I’m not surprised. At the end of the day, Kanye wants to be accepted by white people so bad but he will never be considered one of them. That’s why you don’t sell you own people out.

  2. This is what DL was talking about. All these black celebrities jumping on the Trump bandwagon don’t realize that he is only using them so he can pretend he’s not a racist. After their fake meetings and photo ops, he has no more use for them and moves on.

  3. I’m surprised PMK hasn’t managed to help her son in law squeeze in one of the many empty slots for performers. Anyway, it sounds like Trump and his team didn’t really want rappers there anyway. That’s what they mean by “more traditional” I’m assuming. But then again, they did ask 2 Chainz so maybe it’s Kanye’s bad habit of ranting and making everything about himself that the Donald wants to avoid.

  4. I don’t believe this for a minute. I’m sure Kanye knew his career with the black community would’ve be ended if he accepted, so he said he wouldn’t. If 2 Chainz got an invite, I’m sure Kanye did too.

  5. Keep in mind that some of the performers have not been announced in fear of backlash. Kanye could very well be one of them.

  6. Oh he’ll perform. He won’t miss an opportunity to continue his imaginary competition with the Carters. I think they are just lying so Kanye won’t be forced to back out by Black Twitter.
