Duh, Moby Will Decline Trump Inaugural Ball Offer
After calling Donald Trump an “actual sociopath,” “a dim-witted, racist misogynist,” and “the worst president our country has ever, ever, seen,” Moby was apparently asked to play at Trump’s inauguration, an event that’s already being blessed by a roster of A-list talent including America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho, Big & Rich, and Cowboy Troy. Unsurprisingly, he said no.
Moby revealed the news on Instagram, joking that he would DJ at the inaugural ball if Trump released his tax returns. He also suggested that his playlist would include Public Enemy and Karlheinz Stockhausen remixes:
Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider djing at one of the inaugural balls for #trump… Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really? I guess I'd DJ at an inaugural ball if as payment #trump released his tax returns. Also I would probably play public enemy and stockhausen remixes to entertain the republicans. I'm still laughing. Hahahaha. So #trump what do you think, I DJ for you and you release your tax returns?
Billboard asked Moby for an actual hypothetical playlist, and he assembled one that features Public Enemy, Rage Against The Machine, Sex Pistols, Kendrick Lamar, Gil-Scott Heron, Billie Holiday, and more. Listen below.
