Katy Perry's offer to Hillary Clinton

(CNN) - Maybe Hillary Clinton will take Katy Perry up on her offer.

The pop superstar says she'll write Clinton's theme song if the former secretary of state does decide to run for president again.

"I told hillaryclinton that I would write her a "theme" song if she needs it," the singer best known for "I Kissed a Girl" and "Firework" said Friday on Instagram, a day after she met Clinton at a book signing for Clinton's new memoir "Hard Choices."

Clinton's response indicates she may already have a Perry song in mind.

"@katyperry Well that’s not a Hard Choice. You already did! Keep letting us hear you Roar," Clinton tweeted Sunday, referring to the singer's 2013 hit "Roar."

The lyrics in the song tell the story of a woman who used to "bite my tongue and hold my breath, scared to rock the boat."

But after being "past the breaking point," she "got up. Already brushing off the dust You hear my voice, you hear that sound. Like thunder gonna shake the ground. You held me down, but I got up. Get ready cause I've had enough.

Besides being a  Clinton fan, Perry is a major supporter of President Barack Obama.

New comments from Clinton rekindle personal wealth controversy

    Personally as a woman I could care less about a woman being elected POTUS, but I do like Hillary. I liked her because of Bill, but I respect her because of her putting her differences with the POTUS aside, not going along with the haters and the fact that the mere mention of her name has the GOP and their MSM heads exploding. For that I support her but I won't support another female POTUS candidate. Especially not one between the ages of 35 & 55. Never.

    Um, Katy,
    The song's already been written. Look up ALL OF THE MONKEYS AIN'T IN THE ZOO BY Tommy Collins.

    The Tea Party's song has also already been written, former #1 hit "The South Should Have Won", by Hank Williams, Jr.

    Ironically, it's Hillary who silenced critics, Bill's sexual victims, corruption investigators, and political opponents. This 'Hear Me Roar' works two ways.

    Seriously, Katy Perry? She had one original song and then she started to basically do the same song with different words over and over again. Talk about two people that can't offer anything new!

    Everyone is looking forward to seeing Katie Perry perform a new, catchy tune that lots of the young demographic will be humming at the polls in November, 2016.

    Right-wing commenters here seem stuck at the bar with one word scrawled on a cocktail napkin, looking helplessly around the room for Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly to come up with a word that rhymes with "Benghazi".

    Songwriting is just another one of those skills deemed less important by the bunch that rouse the rabble around collecting assault rifles with abandon. Alas, they're now stuck with whatever impaired anthem Ted Nugent can come up with. Be patient! He hasn't scribbled a hit song in 25 years.

    Thank god there's still some of his vinyl in nursing homes across the Midwest!

    What do you mean you "liked her because of Bill"? I'm really curious about women who can support a man who, consciously or not, used his position to have sex with a woman half his age in the workplace. In most cases, this would be considered and is the very definition of sexual harassment. ML is not totally innocent, but she hasn't ever lied about it or claimed innocence. His very position of POTUS demands a much higher level of accountability in his actions than that of a twenty-something. He is not and honorable or ethical man for that reason alone. He was not only put through impeachment processes for his lies, he was also disbarred for seven years for the lies.

    Serfdom seems to work for Republicans, why not Democrats as well.
    Sure would be nice if we could run someone who actually shared our Democrat core beliefs, but Americans love celebrity more.

    I was thinking the Teatrolls deserved something more along the lines of "Taking Re--ds to the Zoo" by the Dead Milkmen.

    I don't even know how to become a "Tea Party Member". It is just people that don't like government spending to be out of control, by either party. I attended one rally and the featured speaker was Herman Cain. There were people of every race attending-it was in Central FL, and nobody there was wishing that the South had won the Civil War. As for the "War on Women" the Clintons did a pretty good number on Monica and other women. How is that so overlooked by Katy Perry and other supporters of the Clintons?

    "Hillary "let the child molester go" Clinton for president!!!! -the average lunatic lefty"

    There was no letting go. He plead and took a year in prison. Moreover, attacking a defense attorney for representing people accused of crimes is a pretty low-brow cheap shot. Our entire system of justice would completely and utterly collapse...every right you think you have to prevent "the state" from persecuting you mercilessly on false charges or for things that shouldn't even be crimes...would go poof and cease to exist. You have Miranda rights, well-defined rights about what constitutes illegal search and seizure, etc., all because of defense attorneys. Grow the frig up.

    I think Katy Perry is gorgeous and talented but I'm not sure wearing cupcakes on your breasts qualifies you to influence the votes of young people. Oh yeah, you think that's what "womens' rights" means?

    Hillary was one of the victims of that entire incident...not one of the victimizers. But that's ok...you guys keep on trying to tag her with her husband's fouls as if she's to blame for his errant dalliances. That line of attack will work great with women across the country and will totally fix the GOP/Teatrolls' gender issues problems. I promise. Please proceed...

    Would you have preferred cookies? Personally, I'm a brownie kind of guy, but I thought the cupcakes were pretty good too.

    geen wrote Elizabeth Warren to run for president. The same person who claimed to be of American Indian heritage because she's from Oklahoma.

    I adored Bill Clinton. He was my favorite POTUS until President Obama. Bill Clinton had a robust economy, everyone had jobs, and he was very likable. But just like many other powerful men before him, he was a man. Many Presidents have had mistresses over the years. The difference in Bill is, he seems to be the only one that got set up. Monica was a willing participant, one who kept a stained dress for 6 months, if that doesn't spell set up, then what does. People look at JFK and Jackie like they were gods and goddesses, yet JFK completely disrespected Jackie and she stuck by him, but that's ok. Presidents have had side pieces since they came off the slave ships. So why does Hillary have to be different?

    You at CNN are so CNN Clinton News Network. Wow wont even post a independent view of Hillary. Sad. But what was I expecting. Fox is right CNN is left dissent in the middle is ignored or Moderated. Both side are wrong and unless it fits your warped view, it is deleted. Good luck with that.

    Hillary Clinton is an extremely deceitful woman. She's also ruthless. If these young girls like Katey Perry really knew what she was like, they would think that she was the offspring of a female Adolph Hitler and the Devil.

    What Hilary needs is her youth. Hilary is hiding a serious medical condition from the public, which will eventually doom her campaign.
