Katy Perry makes political statement with GRAMMYs performance

Katy Perry made sure that her first GRAMMYs performance in years made a big statement on Sunday night.

The singer took to the stage on music's biggest night to perform her new song, "Chained To The Rhythm," and the moody performance was full of politically-inclined moments.

For one, along with her white suit and sneakers, Perry rocked an armband with the word "PERSIST" emblazoned on it in jeweled lettering.

The song itself also nods to Perry's political leanings and our country's current political climate:

"So comfortable, we live in a bubble, a bubble/So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, the trouble," she sang. "Yeah, we think we're free/Drink, this one is on me/We're all chained to the rhythm."

To close out the performance, Perry stood hand-in-hand with featured artist Skip Marley as a projection from the United States Constitution was layered over them. The words "We the people" were especially visible.

"No hate!" Perry shouted as the crowd got on its feet.

During her hiatus from music, Perry was an incredibly vocal supporter of Democratic nominee for president, Hillary Clinton. The singer had previously been relatively quiet when it came to political issues, but was ever present on the campaign trail stumping for Clinton at rallies and concerts throughout the election.

On the red carpet before the GRAMMYs, Perry said that her upcoming album, for which "Chained To The Rhythm" is a lead single, would be "an era of purposeful thought."
