According to reports, pop star Justin Bieber was offered $5 million to perform a 45-minute show, but he turned it down.
Why? Because the show was to be sponsored by GOP donors and was apparently meant to be some sport of an event that would show support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Reports claim that Bieber was actually open to playing the show, since he’s Canadian and, well, that’s a lot of money. But people close to the celebrity singer are saying that his manager Scooter Braun and his agency CAA were completely against it.
Braun is a big supporter of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign apparently, and reports say that he told Bieber that he would have to stop representing him if the pop singer decided to take the gig.
One report claims that Braun asked the organizers if Bieber could put up a “Black Lives Matter” banner for the performance, but they say that this wouldn’t be possible.
Another sources claims that all the guys in Bieber’s live band, who are all African-American, were also against playing the show.
