Singer has long supported the Presidential candidate's 2016 campaign
Katy Perry performed at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton‘s Presidential campaign over the weekend, giving the candidate a birthday present to mark the occasion.
Clinton turned 68 on Monday (October 26), while Perry herself celebrated her 31st birthday on October 25.
Posting on Instagram, Perry revealed that she bought a ‘POTUS’ (President Of The United States) necklace for Clinton.
In a caption, Perry wrote: “My birthday gift to my fellow Scorpio, Hillary, says it all.”
In another post, Perry paid tribute to Clinton, saying: “Happy Birthday to our next great leader @hillaryclinton !!! This past weekend, I was honored to be able to sit down with Maya Harris, one of HRC’s senior policy (aka plans for the future) advisors before joining the stage with Hillary the next day. I wanted to be more informed and educated on her plans and dreams for our country. I never want to be a puppet, and always want to feel my own purpose and ownership in everything I do. Maya and I, and some of my closest girlfriends, had the most incredible, eye-opening 3 hours of conversation about the future. We went over so many points and asked the hard questions on everything from gun control to birth control to health care to affordable education to a realistic approach in finding the middle class again.”
She continued: “I was never raised with economic privilege and found money to be the main source of pain for my own family growing up, so I understand why there is a need for such change. I am still learning and educating myself on the world of politics and searching for every strand of authenticity buried deep in it. What I heard and experienced this weekend empowers me to believe that real change is possible and on the way!”
“Ladies! There are so many incredible opportunities for us that are possible: equal pay, paid leave (you don’t lose your job if you want to have a family) and YOUR choice to have a family when and if it’s RIGHT FOR YOU! These are just some of the reasons I am standing with her and will continue to do so. Next year’s election is one of the most important ones in decades, and the choices we make will have a profound effect on women for years to come. So, I stand with her for my daughters and their daughters, and beyond what time gives me. Get informed, get involved and become empowered! Strong women help create strong families!”
