It's no secret that Katy Perry and Hillary Clinton are pretty much BFFs. Perry was one of Clinton's biggest celebrity advocates during her presidential campaign, and it seems that the feelings of admiration are mutual.

Clinton made an appearance at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball Tuesday night, where she presented Perry with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award.

"On a personal level, I cannot tell you how delighted I am to be here to help celebrate a global megastar, a social media queen with the most Twitter followers in the world — although she’s getting some competition — and someone whose powerful voice and creative lyrics remind us when you get knocked down to get back up," Clinton told the crowd while introducing Perry.


So Hillary definitely listens to "Firework" while she's on the elliptical. Do you think she ever feels like a plastic bag?

And her praise for Katy didn't end there. Clinton continued:

I have seen Katy’s commitment to the causes she believes in firsthand. I’ve gotten to spend time with her and I know how deeply she cares about making our world a better place. She is serious about understanding the complex problems we face and pulling people together to solve them. We need champions like Katy now more than ever: her passion, her energy, and, yes, her voice, louder than a lion.


And then, of course, Perry did what we all do when our besties say something incredibly sweet about us: she cried.

"Does anyone have a tissue?" she asked when she got on stage.

Perry had some nice words for Clinton as well. "“Hillary Clinton has lit a voice inside of me, and that light will never go out," Perry said in her speech. "It will continue to get brighter and brighter.”


So this means Hill-dawg will be making an appearance in Katy's next music video. Right?!
