Katy Perry making the rounds for 2016?

Updated 10:19 p.m. ET, 6/24/2014

(CNN) – Is this the Katy Perry primary?

Days after Perry took a photo with Hillary Clinton, the pop icon took a selfie Tuesday with Vice President Joe Biden, another potential presidential contender for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

"Brought my pink pony to the White House to holler @VP Joe Biden," she wrote on Instagram.

"P.s. He made me call my 93 year old grandma to thank her for my baby blue eyes! What a Q-T," she added.

Washington marked Perry's latest stop on her "Prismatic World Tour."

The vice president and his granddaughter are fans of Perry’s music, and he invited her to come in to say hi and meet them while she is in town, an official from Biden's office told CNN.

She met Clinton at a book signing Thursday in Los Angeles, where she offered to write the former secretary of state "a 'theme' song if she needs it."

Besides being a Clinton fan, Perry was a major supporter of the Obama/Biden 2012 campaign.

    It is bad enough we have to listen to her music–could she please stay out of politics.

    +++++++++++++++++++++

    I totally get where you're coming from because I feel the same way about poopy pants the pedophile (although he's not even a decent musician) and hank williams junior (and he's a bitter drunk) among others.

    Good to see Katy putting that GED of hers to good use, maybe now that see has some money in the bank she can go and get an education.

    Jealous much? I'm sure "see" has at least as good an education as you – and at least "see" has enough talent to earn her own way and no not care what bitter, flaccid little men think.

    So she can then be as successful as YOU, right Andy?

    I wish entertainers wouldn't get political and would concentrate on entertaining. Getting political might hurt an entertainer's career. What about all of Katy Perry's fans who do not support Hillary Clinton?

    If you're going to complain about her you have to complain about Ted "funky booty" Nugent. But that won't happen.

    Katy Perry is a wonderful ambassador to young voters for the Democratic Party. Sounds like Republican Tea Party critics are sour grapes and jealous of her huge success and popularity.

    If fans base their "fandom" on a celebrity's choice for elected office, that says more about the "fan" than the celebrity in question. For example: I'm not a fan of Kelsey Grammer's political leanings, but I love his work and really don't care who he endorses or dislikes.

    Malory-FYI, the NRA is bi-partisan. Doesn`t matter who you are if your pro-2nd Amend. they score favorable. Also, hollywood has its share of fat cat donors who donate based political issues and legislation.

    "I wish entertainers wouldn't get political and would concentrate on entertaining."

    Why? They've got just as much right as the Koch brothers or Waltons or Steyer to throw their fame and/or money around, no? Are you just irritated that they might wield influence by simply being popular and without spending $250M?

    "Getting political might hurt an entertainer's career."

    Their career, their choice whether to take whatever risks they want.

    "What about all of Katy Perry's fans who do not support Hillary Clinton?"

    Well, hopefully the actual, chronological children and adolescents who make up most of her fan base, but don't agree with her politics, are capable of acting more maturely than the mental and emotional adolescents that make up the GOP/Teatrolls.

    Yeah, except the NRA wasn't referring to a Dem President when they made that declaration, but they sure whine that the Dems "want to take away yer guns" a lot. Additionally, NOBODY in Hollywood has EVER declared that THEY would be working out of the WH if the Dem wins. Additionally, what legislation has ANYONE in Hollywood EVER caused to be enacted?

    Wow – a democratic ambassador??? She is a pop star. Hollywood is fantasyland. They are out of touch with the real world like liberals. Just let all the kids watch the California Gurls video to see a real role model!!!!!!!

    Most 2nd Amendment activists don't know what "well regulated militia" even means, much less take notice of the fact that the 3rd and 4th Amendments are extensions to the 2nd. They don't even know that the expression "well regulated militia" was first used by George Washington in a State of the Union address, asking the newly formed Congress to create the legislative framework for a national army of defenders, which he described as a "well regulated militia". Washington wanted an army of self-armed volunteers, similar to the army that beat the British.

    The actual meaning of the phrase in that speech could best be described as "well trained", in the sense that the militia members were "well behaved". Washington didn't want militia members going around behaving like some of the "King's men" would in European nations: robbing and stealing food, homes, and supplies. The "right to bear arms" also traces back t o European nations that outlawed the possession of firearms by anyone, except often times for the King's men and the local sheriffs.

    @Rudy-lmao, you can twist, turn, spin, and say it different until your face turns blue but 2nd Amend. is not going to defined any other way besides the right to bear arms.
