Saturday Night Social: Vince Neil Thought He'd Be Playing at the Presidential Inauguration No Matter Who Won

Politics has deadened so many of our dreams these past two weeks, including, I guess, a weird delusion belonging to Mötley Crüe singer and future Celebrity Apprentice contestant Vince Neil.


On Friday, Neil announced in an interview with Billboard that he will perform with his own band at the coronation of Donald Trump on January 20. Neil said he was asked about his availability “months ago.”

A few hours later, TMZ caught up with Neil, who told them he’s been “uninvited,” which came as quite a shock seeing as he was under the impression that he’d be performing at the inauguration no matter who won the presidency. It appears Neil was not aware that it had been the Democrats, not “any election outcome,” who had booked him in advance.


“I guess there is more politics in bands playing than I thought there was,” said Neil. This does sound like the dawning realization of a man who saw no difference between performing for an unstable, pussy-grabbing racist (to say the least) and Hillary Clinton.

The Real Janelle

Hello all! I’ve not been in the mood to post lately but I wanted to let you know that I’m pregnant! Almost 5 weeks along and though I know it’s super early to tell people, I’d love to get some advice on how to get better rest and stop feeling so damn tired all the time! Seriously, this tiny embryo is just sucking away all of my energy and I can’t even sleep well because everything is uncomfortable (sleeping on my back seems to be marginally better than the rest). Any tips will be much appreciated! Will be reading them over my giant sandwich, because I’ve also been feeling ridiculously hungry for a couple days now. :) Thanks in advance!
