We’re sure ‘Smile‘ singer Katy Perry was doing the exact opposite of that once she got a load of the comments that flooded her Instagram Monday night (November 7).
Although gearing up for the next leg of her critically acclaimed ‘Play‘ concert residency in Las Vegas, the GRAMMY nominee took time to hop to Los Angeles to perform her civic duty and vote.
And while some praised the Pop diva for taking to Instagram to encourage her dedicated fans, affectionately called #KatyCats, to do the same, others scoffed at the nominee she endorsed in the process.
Perry took to Twitter Monday to show proof that she had cast her vote in the LA mayoral race for billionaire real estate developer Rick Caruso – a former Republican-turned-“moderate” Democrat who has spent over $100 million on his campaign for political leadership, promising to end street homelessness, improve public safety, increase access to affordable housing, and pump more money into the entertainment industry along the way.
Following big names like Kim Kardashian, Chris Pratt, and others, Katy came as the latest celeb to openly endorse Caruso’s bid for mayor – a problem for many of her fans given the politician’s historical stance of being anti-women’s rights. And given that his switch to the Democratic party only came near the time of the announcement of his intent to run for office, many believe he still holds tightly to his conservative beliefs.
The unfavorable response to the ‘Firework‘ singer’s post Monday led her to turn off the comments, but it didn’t stop the fireworks over at Twitter.

I rather have a moderate democrat than a far left one OR a current MAGA Republican.
Sanity must prevail. Seems like the extremes of both parties are ripping the country apart.
“Moderate Democrat” is an oxymoron.
