Will they pack their bags? A list of musicians who planned to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected President.

Quick update: the Canadian Immigration website has been down since election day results came in Tuesday evening.  On Wednesday, it reappeared.  Now here’s the list.

Miley Cyrus.

“We’re all just f**king jam between his rich ass toes! Honestly f**k this s**t I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean!).”

Pre-election tweet.  

Update: Cyrus now appears to be backing off that promise in a teary concession.  “And this hurts to say, but I even accept you as a president of the United States,” Cyrus said.


Planned to go extra-terrestrial if Trump triumphed.  “If he were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter,” the diva vowed.

Barbra Streisand.

“I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”

Comments to 60 Minutes, in an interview last August.


Lars Ulrich, drummer of Metallica.

This was more a promise to leave if things got really bad…

“I am a hundred percent Danish citizen, I pay taxes in the USA but I can’t vote in America.  Yes, certainly sometimes I think about moving home to Denmark.  I’ll stick to my Danish passport.  If Trump becomes president and everything goes to shit, I might make my way to the airport and ask if I can get back in again.”

Comments to metal site Blabbermouth.


“Me and Drake gonna be neighbors if Donald Trump becomes president,” Ne-Yo told TMZ ahead of the election.

The r&b singer promised to make the move ‘straight away,’ though no word on actual departure moves.

Amber Rose

“I can’t even think about it! I’m moving, I’m out! I can’t. And I am taking my son with me!”

Comments to US Weekly last March.

    Look it’s mostly a media and social beat up.. but the reality is that the sun will continue to rise every morning, the wheels of business will keep on turning.. the rich will stay rich and get even richer.. and the underlings will still be living off burgers and beans..

    These little starlets will still want to gallivant along the Sunset Strip and hangout in Beverly Hills ..

    Canadian artists have been moving to the States for decades, because it’s the center of the entertainment universe and because that’s where the money is. Presidents may change, but the dictum “Follow the money” does not.

    Since it isn’t needed any more, President-elect Trump should loan his big jet to any of the above who needs a ride….

    As much as the Canadian immigration site crashed during election results, people need to just settle down and stay put. Now is the time to be vigilant and focus that anger and disappointment into being watchdogs for this incoming administration.

    Mr. Ulrich, we need you.

    The rest of you, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Please move to an island which lacks recording technology and Internet access.
