Following the Presidential debate on Monday evening, big-name musicians took to social media to express their opinions, with the NME reporting that Katy Perry said she would be voting for Hillary Clinton naked.
The singer posted a blurred naked picture on Instagram, with the words, "Katy Perry votes naked tomorrow - Tomorrow, I use my body as click bait to help change the world."
According to the NME, "Perry has long been an active campaigner for the Democrat party, having joined Clinton on her campaign trail in Iowa and performed at the Democrat National Convention in July."
Chance the Rapper Tweeted, "Dear God, the words law & order shouldn't strike so much fear in my heart as a law abiding citizen but I am so damn scared of Donald Trump."
LA rapper Open Mike Eagle summed it up like this: "Smug smile vs pouty anus face."
Jana Hunter of Lower Dens clearly wasn’t impressed, Tweeting, "RT if you'd give your life for a better solution than these two people."
Meanwhile, Pitchfork noticed that veteran record producer Rick Rubin actually attended the debate, sitting among the besuited politicians in the audience. Rubin was visibly enjoying himself, beaming smiles, leading to DJ Young Charles Tweeting, "I just want someone to look at me the way Rick Rubin looks at something off camera at the presidential debate."
