Katy Perry, Rihanna and Beyoncé: Stars With Political Nail Art (GALLERY)
Katy Perry is the latest lady to hop on the bandwagon. At President Barack Obama’s star-studded 30 Days to Victory concert fundraiser on Sunday Night, the “Firework” singer tweeted a snap of her “appropriate nails,” which were adorned with Obama’s face, the Democratic donkey and red, white, and blue stars and stripes.
Putting her pro-Bama manicure on full display, Perry took the stage — during a line-up that also included Jennifer Hudson, Jon Bon Jovi, Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder — to belt out Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” which the POTUS famously purred during a January fundraiser. “Today I am so honored to play for the President!” she tweeted.
What other stars have styled their tips politically?
Back during Obama’s first bid for the White House in 2008, singer-rapper Eve chose change — putting a photo of the then-Chicago politician on her thumbnail.
And after he took office, Rihanna followed in Eve’s footsteps. During her performance at the NFL Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Concert in 2009, RiRi sported a Obama’s portrait on her pinky fingernail.
Beyoncé put her die-hard patriotism on display with a stars-and-stripes manicure in her and Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” music video. And her sister took it a step further, flashing ten fingers full of presidential nail art.
Maybe soon we’ll see some Mitt Romney tips? But for now, see which celebrities are getting in on the trend in Celebuzz’s gallery.
