Katy Perry Gets Political at the Brit Awards

Published

Katy Perry brought more than just her music to the Brit Awards this year. The 2017 Brit Awards proved to be a place for the pop singer to make a statement.

It’s not the first time that Perry has dipped her toe into political waters. The singer previously performed at the Democratic National Convention and had voiced her intention to vote for Hillary Clinton for the next president of the United States. So it may not have been a shock when the newly platinum singer tackled the issue during her performance.

Katy began by rising up among the many houses on stage and seemed right at home throughout the performance. Perhaps a little newfound confidence stemming from her relationship with Orlando Bloom? Regardless, the now-blonde bombshell sang with confidence and didn’t miss a beat, grooving about in a black crop top and matching pant and jacket.

Eventually, two skeleton marionettes danced out onto the stage, operated by artists. The larger than life dancing skeletons were dressed in outfits that were hard to mistake, as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and President Donald Trump had been wearing nearly identical outfits when they met recently. The male skeleton wore a dashing black suit with a red tie, while the female marionette was outfitted in a red dress and shoes.

May accepted the state invitation to the White House, a move that was opposed by Parliament, which had ceremonially voted to turn down the invitation. Perry was at the awards Wednesday night to perform her latest single, “Chained to the Rhythm”. The catchy song was performed to a background of moving houses, likely representing the people who live in the leaders’ respective countries and the ones who will be affected by their decisions.

As Perry’s performance song went on, the Trump and May marionettes held hands, a mirroring of the real life event that occurred where they briefly held hands , which was alleged to be a fear of slopes and stairs on the part of Trump.

It’s not the first time that Perry’s made her voice heard, either. At the Grammys, she donned an armband that read “Persist”, a nod to the silencing on the Senate Floor of Senator Elizabeth Warren for reading a critical letter of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. No word yet whether Trump will comment on the dancing Trump skeleton that graced the Brit Awards stage this year.
