Pop star Katy Perry is sporting a skin-tight mini-skirt with President Barack Obama's campaign slogan "Forward" emblazoned across it at the president's rally in Milwaukee.

Perry came on stage at Saturday's event initially wearing a red, white and blue dress and holding a microphone shaped like the Statue of Liberty's torch.

But after her first song, a cover of Al Green's soul hit "Let's Stay Together," she tossed aside the dress to reveal the bright blue miniskirt.

Obama's slogan "Forward" is also Wisconsin's state motto.
Perry paused midway through her set to make a pitch for donations to victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Obama's rally with Perry comes before he's set to be in Madison on Monday with rocker Bruce Springsteen, who is likely to make a different fashion statement.
