  • Fri, 20 Jan 2017 01:00:00 EST
    Backstreet Boy, Brian Littrell, says he would've performed at president-elect, Donald Trump's, inauguration today (January 20th) if his group didn't already have a prior engagement. Littrell told TMZ, "Hollywood needs to chill out. You're talking about Commander-in-Chief. You're talking about respect. To be honest with you, they asked me to ask the guys to sing (at the inauguration.) It just didn't work out. I would've been there if I could have, but we're starting rehearsals for our Vegas show. So, it's like it just couldn't happen."

  • Fri, 20 Jan 2017 01:00:00 EST

    Cher called out president-elect, Donald Trump, during a rally in NYC on Thursday (January 19th). According to Entertainment Weekly, the singer said, "I won’t introduce myself. I’m an elitist lib-tard. I’m an elitist lib-tard whose grandmother picked cotton, whose mother sang on bars when she was eight years old during the Depression. … I want to tell you who I am so I can tell you what I believe."

    She continued, "I have been accused by these people of being so many things, but I understand how the people were so desperate to pick this man, this unbelievable narcissist who could change the face of our world if we let him. The only thing that will save us is you. The only thing that can save us is you."

    • The singer then said, "Never once did I dream that there would be one through arrogance and ignorance, who could change our world, who could change the face of our world. … I know you can stop this. I know you can stop this, because the power of the people is bigger than those a**holes that are there in Washington. I tried not to have a potty mouth, but it’s just me, okay? You must never give up, because the thing that will help us, that will get us through this is anger. Otherwise, we’ll be in sadness and depression."
    • Cher added, "I gave up and I came upstairs and I took a shower and I took my makeup off, and then someone said, ‘There are thousands of people marching down the street.’ So I went down with none of my fabulous Cher-ness, and they got caught up. It took me out of my depression, took me out of my sadness, and I thought, ‘Look, these people have come now. It’s happening now. We can change this now.’ You can change this, I promise you, you can change this."
