Katy Perry hits the campaign trail again Saturday, when she will join President Barack Obama in Milwaukee, just days before the election, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The rally will take place at Milwaukee's Delta Center, with doors opening at 11:30 a.m. local time.

Perry opened for the President last week at a campaign event in Las Vegas, where she performed "Let's Stay Together," Part of Me," "Teenage Dream," "Wide Awawke" and "Firework."

Clad in a dress made to look like a voting ballot – that of course had the Obama and Biden ticket ticked – Perry said during the performance, "You know, I've got my poll outfit sorted. When I go the polls in California, it's going to be on point. It's going to be red, white and blue, for you-know-who. So you'd better do it, or I'm going to come and get you."

Perry's first appearance with the president came at a Los Angeles fundraiser earlier in October, alongside Stevie Wonder, Jon Bon Jovi and Jennifer Hudson. No word on whether or not Perry plans to paint Obama's portrait on her fingernails again for the Milwaukee rally.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
