Pop music superstar Katy Perry reached her limit with the liberals who run California and voted for the ex-Republican conservative candidate for mayor of Los Angeles.
On Monday, Perry posted a picture on Instagram showing her casting a ballot for LA mayoral candidate Rick Caruso.
“I am voting for a myriad of reasons (see the news) but in particular because Los Angeles is a hot mess atm,” Perry wrote in a caption on the photo of her casting a ballot.
She also added the tag “#letsgocaruso” to her post.
Caruso was a member of the Republican Party until 2019.
He is a real-estate billionaire who has pledged to prioritize fighting homelessness and skyrocketing violent crime in Los Angeles.
The current mayor, Democrat Eric Garcetti, is term-limited.
“Katy, thank you for your support,” Caruso responded on Twitter.
“One day, I hope to be able to serve all Angelenos.”
Perry joined other Hollywood celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Snoop Dogg, and Chris Pratt in backing Caruso’s bid.
“I’ve lived in LA for over 20 years,” Pratt said.
“It’s been great to me.
“In that time I’ve seen what many residents here have seen, the city’s gradual decline into pain and utter disarray.
“If you live here, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
“I don’t normally support political candidates.
“But in this election, there’s too much to lose.
“If you’re an LA voter, I urge you to vote for @rickcarusola. He’s a builder.
“He knows how to get s*** done.
“He’s the guy for our city. Rick Caruso for LA mayor.”
