Thanks, but no thanks. Iconic rockers Blondie turned down the chance to perform at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. They did so to protest Russia's anti-gay politics. The country bans any sort of gay "propaganda" or expression in front of minors and more.
Singer Debbie Harry posted a tweet featuring a pic of the document showing the group's official Olympics offer. She marked it up, of course.
Cher also reportedly passed, as well.
