Moby Will Perform At Trump’s Inauguration Under One Condition
“Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really?” This is just a part of iconic electronic artist Moby’s dumbfounded response to the invitation he received from the Trump campaign to DJ one of the inaugural balls.
Moby (who is a publicly outspoken libertarian) revealed this news yesterday via an , in which he goes on to say if he were to accept the invite, he would play Public Enemy and Stockhausen to “entertain the Republicans.” He also sarcastically offered to consider the gig in lieu of payment if Trump would release his highly anticipated tax returns to the public.
Moby is known for his veganism, animal rights activism and electronic music, none of which seem to align with Trump’s overall political agenda. Can you imagine the throng of Trump supporters holding their lighters to the sky as Moby starts playing his dreamlike jam “Porcelain?” The invite seems bizarrely out of touch for the Trump Campaign, especially considering Moby’s , in which he made his feelings towards Trump very clear, with statements such as “Donald Trump is a racist and a misogynist who has ruined countless businesses and will be the worst president our country has ever, ever seen.”
That said, from a strategic standpoint, securing Moby’s support could help to open up a whole new demographic of Trump supporters, as the power and influence of an admired (and opinionated) artist could go a long way with his wide fan base.
