Who would turn down $5 million and the biggest single pay day of their career you may ask... Well, Justin Bieber, that's who. TMZ reported that the Canadian singer declined the large offer to perform at the Republican National Convention. 

Although the promoters guaranteed that the event was not apart of the politics, Justin and his camp was prohibited to say anything negative about Trump or his people if he agreed to this performance. Bieber's manager Scooter Braun and his label CAA were however, against the performance stating that it was "100 percent political". Braun is also a Hillary Clinton supporter and threatened to quit if Justin took on this performance. There are also rumors of Lebron James having some influence over the singer's decision to not perform at this event.

The event was scheduled to be held at a venue close to the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH during the RNC. If Bieber would have agreed to the performance, he would have performed a 45 minute set at the venue. Although Justin considered the option of performing, he opted out considering the feelings of those around him.

Sometimes its not all about the money, you have to do what you feel is right in your heart.
