Elton to Play President Trump's Inauguration?
“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.”
John, 69, came out as gay in 1988. The glam pop icon married Canadian filmmaker David Furnish in 2014, when gay marriage became legal in England.
“This will be the first American president in US history that enters the White House with a pro-gay rights stance,” Scaramucci claimed.
A rep for Elton John denied he will play the inauguration Jan. 20 in Washington, DC, despite claims by a Donald Trump adviser.
“Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration,” the rep said.
