    Moby has rejected an offer to DJ at one of Trump's inauguration balls. The invite comes as quite the surprise as the music producer called Donald an "actual sociopath" in an op-ed for Rolling Stone. Moby is an outspoken environmentalist and vegan, and openly supported Hillary Clinton in the past election, tweeting "so, @HillaryClinton is: smart, experienced, principled, and also funny. i'm very happy to endorse my friend #Hillary2016"

    In an Instagram post, Moby revealed that he was approached by a booking agent to play a Donald Trump inauguration ball. He said, "Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider djing at one of the inaugural balls for #trump... Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really? I guess I'd DJ at an inaugural ball if as payment #trump released his tax returns. Also I would probably play public enemy and stockhausen remixes to entertain the republicans. I'm still laughing. Hahahaha. So #trump what do you think, I DJ for you and you release your tax returns?"

    In response, Billboard asked Moby what his hypothetical playlist. As promised, the playlist contains Public Enemy. It also has some classes from U2, Gil Scott-Heron, and Marvin Gaye. It's just unfortunate that the clashing of two ideals at a celebratory Presidential ball will never happen. But For now, we can just imagine.
