Do you remember Charlotte Church? As a young teen, the Welsh singer made a name for herself for her sweet faced beauty and her angelic soprano voice. Her rendition of “Ave Maria” brought many a nun to tears.
Well, guess what?
Lil’ Charlotte has grown up.
And she has lost a lot of that sweetness, at least when it comes to expressing her opinion about President-elect Donald Trump.
Like so many other artists before her, Charlotte Church was invited to perform at the upcoming inauguration. Like Andrea Bocelli, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Kiss, Kanye West and Celine Dion, Ms. Church decided to decline the invitation.
But she didn’t politely or respectfully decline it. She declined the invitation with flair.
She took to Donald Trump’s favorite place, the Twitterverse. She called Trump out for his behavior by labelling him as a tyrant.
Then she added some emphasis. She put in a whole series of “poop” emojis.
@realDonaldTrump Your staff have asked me to sing at your inauguration, a simple Internet search would show I think you're a tyrant. Bye????

That’s exactly what a lot of us think about Donald Trump, but we don’t all get the chance to tell him so!
So far the inauguration is shaping up to be a real star-free event. The biggest name to appear is someone named Jackie Evancho, who made her name on “America’s Got Talent.” The 16 year old singer is said to be thrilled with her invitation.
The rest of the “talent” will consist of the reluctant New York City Rockettes and the members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir that didn’t quit in protest.
You go, Charlotte Church. I used to think you were a little too sweet, you know? But you’ve redeemed yourself.
The poopies were the best part.
Watch this video and try to reconcile this lovely angel with the poop emojis.
