GOP donors were to bankroll the pop star’s fee but according to reports he spurned the offer on the advice of his manager – who supports Hillary Clinton.
This week’s Democratic national convention attracted a starry roster of performers – including one of the world’s biggest pop acts – Katy Perry.
Third Eye Blind meanwhile were the most popular band to perform during the Republican national convention last week – but they used the opportunity to lambast the GOP.
According to TMZ the Republicans had also attempted to book Justin Bieber by offering the star $5m to play a 45-minute set at a venue near where the convention was held.
Should he have accepted the offer it would have marked Bieber’s biggest single payday.
(ed:..no matter what you may think of bieber – he deserves some respect for that one..
..and i don’t care how rich you are – how many people would turn down a one-off paycheck of five million dollars.?..)
