Katy Perry, pop star and record label owner, has offered to write Hillary Clinton’s campaign song if the former secretary of state decides to run for the presidential campaign. Clinton, currently touring to promote her book, “Hard Choices,” posed with Perry at a recent event:

It seems like Clinton was into the idea, citing Perry’s recent single from “Prism” as a pretty good model:

“Roar,” with lyrics, “I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire/‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar/Louder, louder than a lion,” has “taken on a life of its own,” Perry told “Good Morning America” recently. Staples joined her campaign, “Make Roar Happen,” to donate $1 million in funding for teachers and classrooms through DonorsChoose.org. Meanwhile, Perry kicked off her North American Prismatic Tour Sunday.
