"Why Would Elton John Sing at Rush Limbaugh's Wedding?" People magazine asked when Rush Limbaugh married his fourth wife.
Sir Elton was happy to serenade the happy couple, and their assembled, homophobic, friends for $1 million six years ago.
It is in that light that one may best consider The New York Post's report:
Elton John will perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration, claimed a key adviser, who championed the billionaire as the first president ever to enter the White House with a “pro-gay rights” stance.
“Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the mall for inauguration,” Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the presidential transition team executive committee as well as a vice chair of the presidential inaugural committee, told BBC’s “HARDtalk.
Having the “Rocket Man” singer perform, he continued, “shows our commitment to gay rights.”- as well as John's publicist's response:
Incorrect. He will NOT be performing.
