It must be that time again ― the eve of the presidential election. Why else would the First Couple be spending so much time making nice with the media, and some of the most influential pop stars of the moment?

Barack Obama popped up on The Tonight Show with musical guests No Doubt, while Katy Perry celebrated her 28th birthday not in any of the ways we suggested, but rather, by lunching with Michelle Obama. Not too shabby!

We’ve known Katy was an Obama supporter for a long while now ― Mitt Romney probably wouldn’t approve of her kissing girls, after all ― and she made it particularly clear with the dress she wore to perform for the Obamas.

“NOW my bday is complete! Lunch with @MichelleObama #chicvote,” Katy tweeted in her excitement, along with a photo. And we have to agree ― lunch with the First Lady would make for a pretty fantastic birthday.
