Frozen star Idina Menzel has offered some cold comfort to Donald Trump amid reports the president-elect is having trouble securing A-list musical talent for his inauguration next month.
“I think it’s karma, baby,” the Tony-winning singer and actress told Vanity Fair at a benefit concert Wednesday. “I mean, look: All the artists in the world got up and tried to get our girl [Hillary Clinton] elected, and it still didn’t happen, so we’re all still trying to recover from that.”
Menzel added, “Maybe he’ll just have to sing something himself. He probably thinks he has a great voice; he thinks he does everything great.”
Yesterday The Wrap reported that Trump’s team is struggling to book high-profile performers for his swearing-in ceremony, despite offering considerable perks to talent bookers. (A Trump spokesperson disputed the report.) Meanwhile, NBC Washington reported that D.C.-area marching bands are opting to sit out Trump’s inaugural parade.
