MILWAUKEE (AP) — Pop star Katy Perry sported a skin-tight minidress with President Obama's campaign slogan "Forward" emblazoned across it at the president's rally in Milwaukee on Saturday.

Miss Perry came onstage 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 minidress.

Mr. Obama's slogan, "Forward," is also Wisconsin's state motto.

Miss Perry paused midway through her set to make a pitch for donations to victims of superstorm Sandy.

Mr. Obama's rally with Miss Perry comes before he's set to be in Madison, the Wisconsin capital, on Monday with rocker Bruce Springsteen.
