President-elect Donald Trump has always been in the limelight with a lot of celebrities— models, musicians, actors, and who not. But has all this fame travelled with him even after the controversial elections of 2016? 

With president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration just a few hours away, the stage still doesn’t seem to be shining with big stars like Beyonce, James Taylor, John Legend, etc. who marked their presence for President Barack Obama’s inaugural. Many celebrities were also reported to have turned down the offer to perform at the inaugural as the election campaign was rife with rhetoric against Muslims and immigrants.
