Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, is criticizing artists for refusing to perform at President-elect Donald Trump's Inauguration.

In a blog post on Wednesday, Palin listed 11 "A-list" musicians who have turned down invitations to perform at the Jan. 20 ceremony “for fear of backlash or to stand against him politically.”

“If Donald Trump were still just a regular old billionaire and threw a party at Trump Tower in New York City, celebrities would be lined up out the door, and the most famous artists would be pining for a chance to perform,” Palin wrote in her blog post. “But because he will be inaugurated as the next Republican president in January, these same mega-celebrities, who would normally drool over an invitation to sing for the president, want no part of it.

“Isn’t it amazing how ‘not cool’ it is to be conservative in the public eye?” Palin continued. “Either Hollywood is that far off — or we have so many sissies we have [sic] in the spot light too scared to stand for what they believe in!”

Some of the artists who Palin targeted in her message include Elton John, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Aretha Franklin and Bruno Mars.

These artists reportedly have either publicly turned down invitations from Trump’s team or expressed that they wouldn’t be interested in performing for the president-elect's Inauguration, according to the New York Daily News.

Despite Anthony Scaramucci, a member of Trump’s transition team, falsely stating that Elton John would be performing at the ceremony, the famous singer quickly refuted that claim, according to the Daily Mail.

“I don’t really want my music to be involved in anything to do with an American election campaign,” John said, according to the Daily Mail.

“I’m not a Republican in a million years,” he added. “Why not ask Ted f***ing Nugent? Or one of those f***ing country stars? They’ll do it for you.”
