ABC NewsWith Donald Trump being chosen as the president-elect of the U.S., many music artists have taken to social media to share their reactions to the billionaire businessman’s unexpected victory over Hillary Clinton.

In reference to Trump’s use of the classic Rolling Stones song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” for his election events, despite the band’s protests, Mick Jagger tweeted: “Just was watching the news…maybe they’ll ask me to sing ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ at the inauguration, ha!”

Jon Bon Jovi, who had performed at a number of pro-Clinton events, waxed philosophical about Trump’s victory, tweeting, “What makes America great is our ability to have our voices hear. Today we’re ALL Americans. Let the healing begin.”

Madonna, another strong Hillary supporter, also took a positive approach in her response, writing, “A New Fire Is Lit We Never Give Up. We Never Give In.”

Cher, meanwhile, had a much more negative attitude. She tweeted, “world will never be the same. I feel Sad for the young.”

Among the music stars who were happy with the election results was Ted Nugent, whose ultra-conservative political views are well-known. The rocker posted a lengthy video message on his Facebook page in which he expresses his joy over Trump’s election. “America still has a soul. Not everybody, but enough of us…we stopped the enemy,” gushes a teary-eyed Nugent. “We declared our independence, and we told Hillary Clinton we don’t accept liars, scammers, thieves and rotten freedom-hating, constitution-hating, conniving criminals to be president.”
