President-elect Donald Trump has been littered controversy ever since he announced his campaign back in 2015. From the Miss USA pageant, to the leaked videotape with Billy Bush. And now, just one day before his inauguration as the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump is again facing controversy - for his inauguration performers. Or better yet who’s NOT performing. Kanye West was rumored to perform after he was outspokenly in support of the president elect. But he was officially dismissed by Trump’s team, and the reason is pretty shocking. This rant during a concert last year had fans scratching heads as many of Kanye’s fans are NOT Trump supporters. Kanye though took that rant a step further and actually met with the soon-to-be president just before Christmas. While president-elect Trump himself admitted meeting with the rapper was to secure him as an “ambassador of sorts,” many also speculated that Kanye would also be performing at the Inauguration. Well, it turns out the rapper was never asked. Here’s what Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee chair had to say. “I mean, he’s great,” Tom Barrack told CNN. “He considers himself a friend f the President-elect, but it’s not the venue. It’s going to be typically traditional American. Kanye’s a great guy, we just haven’t asked him to perform. And we move on with our agenda.” We’ll let you interpret that how you will - but let’s take a look at who ARE the traditional American performers Trump did pick. Americas got talent winner Jackie Evanko will perform the national anthem. Rock band 3 Doors Down will also perform, as will country singers Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood. And who was asked but declined? Classical singer Charlotte Church said no, as did Jennifer Holliday and a Bruce Springsteen cover band. But would Kanye have done it if he were “traditionally American” enough? And really, what does that even mean?? Let us know your thoughts below.

So by now you know that Selena Gomez is dating the Weeknd, former lover of Bella Hadid. There’s like some major shade going on in THAT inner circle - so much so that you may have forgotten this very important fact. Selena has dated a Hadid sloppy second before. I know harsh right, but there really isn’t any other way to put it after we uncovered this nugget. And honestly we’re not sure what to think. Selena also dated Cody Simpson - Gigi Hadid’s ex boyfriend. So rewind - Selena and the Weeknd. Bam! Caught kissing. Together. Bella’s all pissed because she and the Weeknd broke up only two months ago. She unfollows Selena on Instagram, starting a war between her sister Gigi Hadid and the singer. Remember, Gigi and Selena are close, so obviously this new relationship is putting strain on their friendship. Gigi is siding with her sister Bella, after all. But let’s take it back a little further and bask in the irony of this situation. In 2015, not that long after Gigi and her boyfriend Cody Simpson broke up, Cody and Selena had a brief fling. Gigi and Cody ended their relationship mutually saying splitting was the best option for them both. Cody even said the lifestyle was getting too crazy. “Going out to dinner and there being paparazzi and stuff as soon as we split, I had the realization that I was straying away from who I was as a whole person. I want to keep it low key and focus on my music.” That’s what he told Dujour magazine. But soon his focus shifted to Selena Gomez. All of a sudden the pair was spotted hanging out together, sparking dating rumors. And Cody even admitted they had a little romance. Cody told that same magazine that he and Selena quote went through a phase - whatever that means. Although we kinda know what that means. But he revealed they didn’t exactly hit it off. “It just got kind of weird,” he said. “It is kind of annoying, because on a daily basis, I don’t hang out with celebs. All my close friends are normal dudes and then I will hang out with some girl who is a musician and everyone think that’s what its all about.” He TOTALLY shaded Selena - some girl who is a musician?? Woah! but also, like WOW. They actually dated, or at least flirted with the idea. So now bringing it back to today to Selena and the Weeknd - Selena is like all about the Hadid sister’s sloppy seconds. Kinda weird if you ask us. But now we’re asking you. What do you think now that we know Selena dated BOTH Gigi and Bella’s exes? Let us know in the comments below.
