Justin Bieber was offered $5 million to perform at the RNC.TMZ revealed that singer Justin Bieber was offered $5 million “to perform at a Republican event during the GOP Convention,” and that he nearly took the deal. According to TMZ:
Sources connected with CAA — the talent agency which reps Bieber and received the offer — tell us a promoter contacted Justin’s people with the offer, saying he would perform for 45 minutes at a venue near Quicken Loans Arena, where the RNC was held.The $5 million was reportedly raised by GOP donors, and would have been paid "up front". But, Justin Beiber's manager, Scooter Braun, asked to put "Black Lives Matter" posters during his performance and was told no.
We’re told Scooter wasn’t heavy-handed at first, and talked to Justin about putting Black Lives Matter banners up in the venue. We’re told Braun was told he could not display BLM banners, but the donors would accept banners that read “All Lives Matter.” The donors also made it clear ... Justin could say nothing disparaging about Trump or the GOP.In addition, LeBron James was asked to supposedly going to make an appearance at the GOP National Convention.
Our sources say the promoter told Scooter ... LeBron James himself was also going to attend an event in Cleveland, welcoming the GOP without taking a political stand. The sources tell us Justin’s people got in touch with LeBron’s people, and they were told LeBron would actually not be in Cleveland for the convention and urged Justin not to go as well.Apparently, that had an impact on Justin Bieber and Bieber said no.
