Katy Perry Tries to Vote Naked, Gets Arrested in Election Video

One-upping boyfriend Orlando Bloom’s paddleboarding pics? Katy Perry showed the world she’s cool with stripping down, too, in a new election video published Tuesday, September 27.


In honor of Voter Registration Day, the pop superstar, 31, starred in a skit for Funny or Die and Rock the Vote to remind people to make their voices heard in the upcoming presidential election this November.

In the clip, the “Rise” singer wakes up in American flag pajamas with popcorn and lollipops stuck in her hair. “I’ve got some great news. This year, you can look like s–t when you vote,” she says. “Yup, I’ve briefly scanned the Constitution, and nowhere does it say you can’t just roll out of bed and come to the polls in whatever state you woke up in. In the name of democracy, any ‘just out of bed’ look is A-OK.”

Perry arrives at the polls and points out other voters’ perfectly acceptable outfits, including a girl in a child’s onesie, played buy You Tube star, iJustine, a "hunk in kids’ briefs” and a woman in "that free XL T-shirt you got from your bank.”

Since the “Roar” songstress sleeps in the nude, she shocks her fellow voters in the video by ripping off her sleepwear and attempting to cast her ballot in the buff. Two police officers rush to arrest her and throw a completely naked Perry in the back of a police car, where a naked Joel McHale commiserates about their similar situations.

“Scratch that. Gotta wear clothes,” Perry says. “My bad! See you at the polls November 8!”

The Grammy nominee has been a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton and even gave a speech and performance at the Democratic National Convention in July. “Both my parents are pastors and staunch Republicans. I did not finish high school and unfortunately, I don’t have a formal education, but I do have an open mind, and I have a voice,” she told the Philadelphia crowd. “You will have as much say as any billionaire. … Because it’s not where you come from but what you grow into.”
