She closed the 2013 MTV VMAs with "Roar" and later on in the evening, Katy Perry got a shout-out and plug from the Commander in Chief himself.

After promoting the President's message about affordable healthcare, Barack Obama's Twitter account posted, "Thanks for spreading the word. #ROAR MT @katyperry: RT @BarackObama: Get affordable coverage starting Oct. 1."

Beyond stoked, the "Firework" singer tweeted, "Happy to do my part, PREZ!" and "YO what a day! #ROAR-ing @ the #VMAs, Tweeting w/POTUS, & now happy to announce U chose #DARKHORSE FT @therealjuicyj to come out Sept 17th!"

However, someone may want to tell her that the account is run by his Organizing for Action staff and not the President himself.
