Will The Rolling Stones Play for the Donald at his Inaguration?

donaldtrump

The Rolling Stones will have been invited to perform for Donald Trump’s Presidential  Inauguration in January.

If this offer is true, it’s really hard to believe, given a history of hatred between The Donald and  and the Rolling Stones. But maybe Trump is trying to make nice, and there’s an opportunity for  the Stones to unify warring factions.

Rumor has it Trump could be paying the Stones upwards of $5 million dollars, probably more  since during the campaign, Justin Bieber was reportedly offered $5 million to play a Republican  event. That offer was declined, following rumored manager Scooter Braun. Must be nice to turn  down 5 Million dollars huh?

There are certainly other artists that have been supportive of a Donald Trump presidency. But the Stones are not only popular, they’re in great performing shape with the 73-year-old Jagger able to dance effortlessly on stage.

The Rolling Stones have not responded to an inquiry regarding the reported invitation but you can be sure we’ll let you know if they decide to pull the trigger.

Taylor Swift Divulges the Evolution of Her Songwriting

Taylor Swift outsideThere is no doubting the fact that Taylor Swift’s songwriting abilities have improved and evolved significantly since her arrival on the American music scene. Even though the subjects of her songs remain pretty much the same from love and heartbreak, her way of expressing her emotions through the songs has changed. Gone are the days when she used to base her writings on puppy-love, as she has matured and so have her lyrics too.

During her early days, she was paying tributes to country music icons like Tim McGraw, while her lyrical content consisted many such feelings that she hadn’t experienced at that age. But after reaching the pinnacle of her career and with the help of her much-publicized personal life, Swift used her real life experiences in her music and it enabled her to elevate her songwriting to the next level.
