Pop star Katy Perry performs at Obama campaign rally
MILWAUKEE — President Barack Obama’s visit to Milwaukee on Saturday, November 3rd was a huge draw for Democrats. But the president wasn’t the only reason people showed up.
Pop star Katy Perry sported a skin-tight minidress with President Barack Obama’s campaign slogan “Forward” emblazoned across it at the president’s rally.
Perry came on stage at Saturday’s event initially wearing a red, white and blue dress and holding a microphone shaped like the Statue of Liberty’s torch.
But after her first song, a cover of Al Green’s soul hit “Let’s Stay Together,” she tossed aside the dress to reveal the bright blue minidress.
Obama’s slogan “Forward” is also Wisconsin’s state motto.
Perry paused midway through her set to make a pitch for donations to victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Obama’s rally with Perry comes before he’s set to be in Madison on Monday with rocker Bruce Springsteen.
