Elton John won’t perform at Trump’s inauguration

(CNN) – Elton John says he will not perform at president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

This, despite a claim from an inaugural committee staffer that he is.

The staffer told the BBC that Elton John’s performance would show Trump’s commitment to gay rights.

But a spokesman for John says that is not true.

The singer criticized Trump back in June…. Saying a Trump presidency would make him "fear for the world".

It’s unclear if John was even asked to perform.

Calls to the inaugural committee were not returned.
