President Obama has already courted the affections of young Hollywood, and the most recent star to get on board with the incumbent candidate is Katy Perry. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Perry signed on to sing at an October 7 fundraising concert at the Nokia Theater called "30 Days to Victory."
