It's time to get political, KatyCats! Katy Perry is slated to perform at Wednesday's "America Forward" re-election event for President Obama in Las Vegas.
According to Eric Ortner, a producer from the Obama campaign's Entertainment Advisory Council who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, "The president will be reaching out to as many voters as possible on the critical choice in this election — moving America forward with an economy built to last for a strong middle class, versus going back to the same policies that crashed our economy in the first place."
This isn't Perry's first time on the Obama campaign trail: The singer recently performed at a Los Angeles fundraiser for the president, alongside Stevie Wonder, Jon Bon Jovi and Jennifer Hudson. Following her performance, Perry took to Twitter to express her support for Obama, writing, "I sang for President @BarackObama last night because I believe in Equal Rights #ForAll #Vote." The singer also expressed her political beliefs in the unlikeliest of places: her nails. Perry's patriotic manicure featured Obama's face and donkeys, the Democratic Party mascot.
As Election Day nears, liberal musicians such as Jay-Z, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Eddie Vedder have waxed political for President Obama by doing everything from giving private performances to throwing pricy fundraisers and recording campaign videos. On the other end of the ideological spectrum, Kid Rock, Stacey Dash and Shyne have all thrown their weight behind Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
Perry's performance at the "America Forward" rally will take place Wednesday at Doolittle Park in Las Vegas.
