Singer Katy Perry is no longer campaigning will Hillary Clinton, but she’s not going to stop trying to make the world a better place by getting political.
Oh no! Perry promised to have at least two political songs on her next album.
Perry told Entertainment Weekly, that “Bigger Than Me,” a still-unreleased song inspired by the 2016 election, is one of 15 on her upcoming album. And the album’s first single, “Chained To The Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley, references politics with lyrics about living in a bubble and breaking down walls.
Perry even said the genre of her album would be “Purposeful pop.”

Back in February, Perry had quite a political performance at the Grammys. Perry’s armband also read “persist” while she performed in front of words from the Constitution.
Furthermore, according to CNN, during a Facebook live stream at the end of April, Perry replied to a viewer’s comment about missing her “old black hair” (Perry recently debuted a short bleached blonde ‘do) by saying, “Aww, really, do you miss Barack Obama as well? OK, times change, bye,” adding, “I should leave now.” A voice in the car can be heard saying, “You’re cut off.”
During the 2016 campaign, Perry’s song “Roar” was often played during Clinton rallies. Perry also performed at Clinton events and the Democratic National Convention and she visited students at UNLV to encourage them to vote for Clinton.
Perry told reporters that,”Sometimes I get tweets saying ‘You should stick to singing and being a pop star,’ But, I’m using my voice.”
Do you think Perry is doing the right thing?
