Star Spotting: Katy Perry Is An All-American Girl On The Cover Of Parade

Katy Perry does the Fourth Of July a week early on the cover of Parade magazine.

We probably don't have to remind you that Katy Perry is a busy gal. In between literally dressing up as popcorn and a film canister for the premiere of her "Part Of Me 3D" film and wigging out before her appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the "Wide Awake" singer worked her fiercest stars and stripes as the cover girl for this coming Sunday's issue of Parade.

With no disrespect to any of our country's founding fathers (by the way, thanks!), we feel that Katy Perry makes for a much sexier spokesperson for our country than say, THIS GUY. Furthermore, anyone who can successfully pull off a red, white and blue striped top-hat is clearly skilled, and should either be nominated for a high-level cabinet position and/or be gifted with the title of honorary first lady. Actually eff all that: KATY PERRY FOR PREZ!
