Justin Bieber almost performed at Republican convention event for $5 million

What would you do for $5 million? Or rather, what wouldn’t you do?

Turns out Justin Bieber would turn down a check that big if it meant performing at a Republican National Convention event.

According to TMZ, the Canadian singer missed out on what could have been his “biggest single payday,” and was told by organizers that if he were to perform, it would be not be a political endorsement.

The performance funds were raised by donors who were willing to pay up front, as well as to foot the production costs.

Bieber allegedly sought council from none other than Cleveland hero LeBron James, who urged the singer not to attend. As TMZ reported it:

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.

The report says that Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, who has campaigned and fundraised on behalf of Hillary Clinton, said he would drop Bieber as a client if he went through with the gig.

Braun also apparently talked about putting a “Black Lives Matter” banner on stage during the performance, but was told by donors he could only display an “All Lives Matter” sign. Apparently Bieber’s band didn’t want to do the show either.

It seems Bieber knows that loving yourself is more important than $5 mil.
