Everyone knows that pop star Katy Perry campaigned long and hard for Hillary Clinton. She utilized her massive social media following and performed her heart out in political rallies for the former Secretary of State.
And, like many Americans and people all over the world (Trump did lose the popular vote after all), Perry was disheartened by the results. Now she may have chosen to utilize her craft to air her political sentiment, and it is quite a big platform she has chosen to do that.
On Wednesday night at the 2017 Brits Awards held at London's O2 Arena, the singer performed her new single, "Chained to the Rhythm," which is nothing out of the ordinary. But then she was joined on stage by two massive skeleton puppets that donned outfits similar to what President Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May were wearing during their infamous meeting in Washington D.C. last month!
Viewers caught on quickly at the alleged subtle dig, and started tweeting about it.
Perry, for her part, has not confirmed if she really did mock the two leaders during her performance, but, prior to taking the stage at the Brits, she did state that Donald Trump's election victory inspired her new album!
"After the election and I was kind of depressed and, you know, I definitely didn’t want to write a club banger," Perry told Capital FM "I was like, ‘How are we writing a club banger when the world is on fire?’ And it was a nice exercise of writing a song that at first listen is a really fun song, but I guess the more you dive into it, it has a different subtext."
And, speaking of subtexts, Katy Perry also wore a pant suit in her Brits performance, an outfit that is often attributed to Hillary Clinton.
Political satire aside, something else happened during the performance, as one of Perry's dancers who was dressed as a house fell of the stage.
We assume that it was an accident, or maybe that house was an immigrant scared off by the skeleton puppets?
