Following Hillary Clinton’s instatement as the official Democratic candidate for the presidential election, her music industry supporters have reacted to the win on social media. Amongst those who were staunch supporters of Clinton’s during the primaries are Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Cher and Christina Aguilera, who all voiced their support for the first woman U.S. Presidential candidate.
In early November (Nov. 8) Clinton is slated to run against tenuous Republican candidate Donald Trump in the election. Clinton beat out Bernie Sanders for the Democrat nomination, who was also supported by many in the music industry. Those in the music industry voiced their support using the hashtag #ImWithHer.
Former president and Hillary’s husband Bill Clinton also tweeted according to NME, saying, “I keep saying Hillary is the ultimate changemaker, and tonight she proved it. I couldn’t be more proud. History made.”
A lot of little girls are in bed right now dreaming for the first time, without limits. You broke the mold @HillaryClinton

But not everyone in the music industry is a fan of Hillary’s and Ryn Weaver criticized Perry for endorsing the Democratic candidate back in February. In a series of tweets that were deleted soon after, Weaver accused Perry of being a liar like Hillary as well as insinuating that she was being paid by the campaign for her endorsement. She also called out Perry for being a “bully” at Coachella music festival.
