But Tom Barrack, the Presidential Inaugural Committee chair, told CNN the ceremony is “not the venue” for West.
He said the rapper is “a great guy” but “we haven’t asked him”.
Mr Barrack said: “He considers himself a friend of the president-elect, but it’s not the venue.
“The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, it’s perfect, it’s going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy but we just haven’t asked him to perform. We move on with our agenda.”
It is not yet known if he has picked any of his wife’s hits with the pop group, or any of her solo endeavours.
Beckham said: “I’m delighted to join Desert Island Discs for its 75th anniversary celebrations.
“Music has been a huge part of my – and my family’s – life and it is a real pleasure to highlight that on such an iconic programme.”
What is Desert Island Discs?
A famous guest is cast away on a fictional desert island each week
They can choose eight songs, a book and a luxury item to take with them
They are always given two items – the complete works of Shakespeare and the Bible
Guests have to choose one record they would save if a storm hit the desert island
Four presenters have hosted the show since it started in 1942 – Roy Plomley (who originally devised the programme), Sir Michael Parkinson, Sue Lawley and Kirsty Young, who took over presenting duties in 2006
Desert Island Discs has an on-air audience of 2.8 million
Its first-ever castaway was actor and comedian Vic Oliver, whose first music selection was pianist Alfred Cortot playing Chopin
Young said of her guest: “His sporting legacy is of course extraordinary. And along with his charisma, cultural impact and humanitarian work, he is a modern man of many parts.
“He’ll be a fascinating guest to welcome on to my little interview island.”
Desert Island Discs’ anniversary will be marked with a three-hour programme on BBC Radio 4 Extra on Saturday, presented by Young, featuring some of the guests from past shows.
They include Cilla Black, talking about her early career singing with The Beatles, and Richard Dimbleby, discussing taking a cutlery set from Hitler’s bunker after being one of the first correspondents to visit it after the dictator’s death.
Louis Tomlinson says he felt like “throwing in the towel” after his mum died.
It’s the first time the singer has spoken publicly about Johannah Deakin since she passed away from leukaemia in December.
“It was my mum who said to me that I’ve just got to keep going,” he says in the interview with US station SiriusXM.
The former One Direction star was promoting his new single with DJ Steve Aoki.
“It’s not something that I feel 100% comfortable talking too much about but just quickly, when I first found out the news I kind of did want to throw the towel in,” he tells hosts Michael Yo, Tony Fly and Symon.
Dr Balshaw said she will focus on developing the organisation’s reputation as “artistically adventurous”.
She added: “I am tremendously excited to be leading Tate in the next chapter of its life. I look forward to developing Tate’s reputation as the most artistically adventurous and culturally inclusive gallery in the world.”
Balshaw, whose appointment was approved by Prime Minister Theresa May, is the gallery’s ninth director and will take up her new post on 1 June.
Lord Browne, chairman of the trustees of Tate, said: “The Trustees and I know that Maria has the vision, drive and stature to lead Tate into its next phase of development. We enthusiastically look forward to working with her as she does so.”
Who is Maria Balshaw? by Ian Youngs, BBC News arts and entertainment reporter
An ambitious, charismatic and indefatigable operator who is admired by artists and administrators alike, Dr Balshaw has been one of the key movers in Manchester’s cultural renaissance over the past decade.
She took over the Whitworth in 2006 then took on the main civic gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, in 2011. They have been good training for Tate – you could say the contemporary Whitworth is the Tate Modern of Manchester, while the more traditional Manchester Art Gallery is the equivalent of Tate Britain.
She has been Manchester City Council’s cultural leader, is on the Arts Council England board and was made a CBE in 2015. She proved her vision and leadership with the £15m redevelopment of the Whitworth, which was named museum of the year by The Art Fund in 2015.
She also helped persuade then Chancellor George Osborne to include a £110m arts venue, The Factory, in his Northern Powerhouse plans.
But she is equally at home with the world’s leading artists – she has forged strong relationships with the likes of Gerhard Richter, Marina Abramovic and Cornelia Parker.
Her Whitworth exhibitions have shown a passion for work from all corners of the globe, from the excellent current Warhol show to the art of her beloved West Africa, and work that brings her rooms to life – stimulating, not static. Which sums her up pretty well.
She has big shoes to fill. During his 29 years in charge, Sir Nicholas has built up the Tate to be one of the world’s most successful art brands.
Sir Nicholas will now become chairman of Arts Council England.
Prominent women in UK arts
Maria Balshaw’s appointment as director of the Tate sees her join a growing number of women in top jobs in the UK arts establishment.
They include Frances Morris, who became Tate Modern’s director last year, Jude Kelly, artistic director of London’s Southbank Centre and Tamara Rojo, artistic director as well as principal lead dancer at English National Ballet.
Vicky Featherstone and Josie Rourke head up London’s Royal Court and Donmar Warehouse theatres, while Erica Whyman is deputy artistic director of the RSC and Cressida Pollock has been the ENO’s chief executive officer since 2015.
In the world of film, a pair of Amandas – Berry and Nevill – hold the chief executive positions at Bafta and the BFI respectively.
As co-organiser of the annual Glastonbury Festival, Emily Eavis arguably occupies one of the most influential posts in the UK music scene.
Not half as influential, though, as Karen Bradley MP‘s current role – that of Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.
A new festival from the organisers of the Glastonbury Festival will be called Variety Bazaar.
Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said they had registered the new event’s name, which will be The Glastonbury Festival team present the Variety Bazaar.
The organisers say it will be separate to Glastonbury and will be at a different location.
There was no indication from Mr Eavis if this affects Glastonbury’s future.
However, fellow organiser Emily Eavis tried to clarify the situation by tweeting: “We’re still planning an event in the future at a different location – which we are calling Variety Bazaar. But Glastonbury Festival will always be called Glastonbury and will remain at Worthy Farm.”
“I’ve been a risk taker all my life. I mean 47 years of taking risks really and so far touch wood, I haven’t come unstuck so far. This might be one risk too far, I don’t know,” he said.
There has been speculation about the future of the festival for some time.
Glastonbury will not take place in 2018 to give the Worthy Farm land a chance to recover but Mr Eavis had said he was keen to fill that year with “something special” because at his age of 81 he did not want to miss out on any festivals.
In June it was revealed the organisers had been in talks with the owners of the nearby Longleat estate to host a festival in 2018 or 2019, but in September organisers said they would not hold an event at another site next year.
In a statement on the Glastonbury Festival website, the organisers said: “We will be taking our next fallow year in 2018, in order to give the farm, the village and the festival team the traditional year off.
“There are no plans to hold an event at another location in 2018.”
In December Mr Eavis said the 2019 Glastonbury Festival could be held at a site 100 miles away from Worthy Farm, “towards the Midlands” to help protect the main site.
He said the new site would be used every five years to help the land at his farm recover.
