Charlotte Church rejects Trump inauguration gig: 'I think you're a tyrant'


Charlotte Church has become the latest high-profile entertainer to reject an invitation to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration festivities.

The Welsh singer-songwriter who rose to fame as a classical singer when she was a girl tweeted her decline of the invitation on Tuesday.

She also took the U.S. president-elect's staff to task for not researching her background in advance o approaching her: "A simple Internet search would show I think you're a tyrant. Bye."

Church joins a long list of performers who have rejected offers to perform at festivities surrounding next week's inauguration.

Just yesterday, DJ and electronica star Moby said they he had declined an offer to perform — although he cheekily suggested that he'd accept if Trump agreed to release his tax returns, something that he had declined to do throughout the campaign despite bipartisan calls to do so.

As TheWrap first reported, Trump has been struggling to book A-list performers for his inauguration balls. Elton John, Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion are among a growing list of artists who declined to perform.
