Pop star Katy Perry thinks she might have locked up a win for President Obama in Wisconsin during the the 2012 election.
“I might have won Wisconsin for him,” she says. “Actually, I didn’t do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice.”
Well, it’s indeed not likely she did too much. She only performed a couple of times for him in the state before a relative handful of people, and he beat Mitt Romney there by almost seven points.
Perry proffered her political analysis during a conversation with GQ. Perry, one of Obama’s most prominent backers in 2012, provided lots of other astute remarks and interesting revelations during the interview.
For example, she doesn’t seem to really believe in God, even though He helped her out once:
“I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down?’ ” At age 11, “God answered my prayers,” she says, glancing south.
But she does believe in aliens.
“I see everything through a spiritual lens,” she says. “I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens.”
And she hopes to talk to Obama about it:
“I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I’m going to ask him that question. It just hasn’t been appropriate yet.”
Not sure if Romney would have had her on his team, even if she could have delivered Wisconsin.
