Who says pop stars can’t be political?
The 2016 presidential election seems like all anyone can talk about these days and even pop stars are getting in on the action. When Hillary Clinton announced her presidential bid, celebrities were quick to show their love for the Democratic candidate. Many superstars, including Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez tweeted out their support for the former Secretary of State’s run for president. Her celebrity endorsements did not stop there, as this week some huge stars announced plans to support her campaign.
Here’s a round-up of the latest pop stars to endorse Hillary:
Christina and her husband Matt Rutler are hosting a campaign fundraiser for Hillary at their home on Nov. 4th. Xtina will be taking on double duty, not only hosting the event, but also performing for the former First Lady. The singer and the politician first met in 2012 at an event for the UN World Food Programme, for which Xtina is an ambassador.
Hillary announced on Twitter on Saturday that Katy will be appearing at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, before the presidential hopeful attends a fundraising dinner for the Ioaw Democratic Party. Katy’s support for Hillary comes as no surprise. The “Dark Horse” singer offered to write a campaign song for Clinton back in June and Hillary reciprocated the love by including Katy’s hit song “Roar” in her official playlist. No word yet on the details of Perry’s appearance at the rally, but a performance of the soaring tune would certainly fire up the crowd.

The Voice coach showed his support for Hillary when he appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show today, proclaiming: “It’s Hillary time.” Pharrell shared that he believes it’s time for a woman to take office, explaining that “women think about things in a holistic way”. The “Happy” singer appreciates that the candidate isn’t all about fun and games and argues that the country needs “someone who is going to take it seriously.”
