Azealia Banks Would Love to Perform at Donald Trump’s Inauguration
President-elect Donald Trump's team has been having a difficult time putting together a decent lineup for this Friday's (Jan. 20) inauguration. An abundance of artists refusing to perform or pulling out of the gig has led to a subpar bill of performers. Azealia Banks wants to change that, announcing her desire to perform at the upcoming ceremony.
"Saw the entertainment line for the inauguration it made me very upset," Banks wrote on Facebook. "This is an EPIC moment in modern history and it should def be celebrated in style. I would love to perform at the inauguration."
The controversial rapper is a Trump supporter, so her willingness to participate is no shock. In a since-deleted Instagram post, Banks discussed her ideas for the ceremony, which include the participation of far-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos.
"The inauguration line up is so trash," she wrote. "I should have been performing the big big beat at the inauguration. Who are any of these people associated with it? And who the hell authorized this shit? This election was waaaaay too lit for there to be such a lack-luster celebration. Me and Milo should be hosting it and turning that party into the teen choice awards."
Yiannopoulos seemed to like the idea. He and Banks traded brief comments of support on the latter's original Facebook post.
"You're my first, second and last choice," Yiannopoulos said. "Me and you in the front row looking MAAAAD cute omg we would break the internet," Banks responded.
The current lineup for Trump's inauguration is 3 Doors Down, Toby Keith, Travis Greene and Sam Moore. Chrisette Michele is also scheduled to perform, according to the New York Daily News, but her team has not confirmed her involvement.
