Katy Perry thrilled with shout-out from Barack Obama
Pop star Katy Perry's 28th birthday got off to a good start on Wednesday after U.S. President Barack Obama gave her an "unforgettable" shout-out at a campaign rally in Las Vegas.
The California Gurls hitmaker, who turns 28 on Thursday, showed her support for the Democratic candidate by wearing a ballot-inspired latex dress to perform at the America Forward fundraiser in Sin City, where she had the chance to introduce her 91-year-old grandmother Ann Hudson to the President.
Obama later told the crowd, "I am so grateful to Katy Perry for the unbelievable performance. Getting to know Katy, she's just a wonderful young lady, and I can tell that part of it is because of her outstanding grandma Ann, a 50-year resident of Nevada, so give her a big round of applause."
Perry later took to Twitter.com to share her delight, writing, "So tonight was a great night! The PRESIDENT gave grandma and I unforgettable shout outs & now I am officially 28! Best. Birthday. Ever."
