These Pop Stars Stayed Silent During The Election — Who Did They Vote For?

Take our poll.

Posted on

During the past election cycle, many big-name pop stars like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Katy Perry made vocal, public endorsements for a presidential candidate (by and large for Hillary Clinton and not tie salesman/real estate mogul Donald Trump).

That's why it's interesting that the following pop stars seem to not have endorsed a candidate in last year's election, which begs the question: Who did they vote for?

Taylor Swift

instagram.com

Endorsement status: The self-proclaimed feminist posted on Instagram on Election Day urging fans to get out and vote, but never endorsed a candidate — and refrained from denouncing one too. Oh, and there was THAT infamous tweet supporting the Women's March.

  1. Who do you think Swift voted for?

    Hillary Clinton
    Donald Trump
    Gary Johnson
    Jill Stein
    She abstained

Britney Spears

instagram.com

Endorsement status: Spears actually seemed to initially endorse Clinton early last year, posting a picture with the candidate using the hashtag #ImWithHer. While the picture still remains on her account, Spears seems to have removed the hashtag — and therefore, technically her endorsement.

Carrie Underwood

instagram.com

Endorsement status: Like her fellow Nashville icon Swift, Underwood posted an Election Day photo urging fans to vote — without publicly endorsing a candidate. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she said she wants "people to do their own homework" and not vote for someone because she endorsed them herself. Underwood also skewered both candidates while hosting the CMAs.

Lana Del Rey

instagram.com

Endorsement status: She posted a video urging fans to watch the debates, and spoke to Elle UK about doing research on both candidates — but withheld an official endorsement. That being said, she posted a photo with Joan Baez while the folk music legend wore a "Nasty Woman" shirt and has uploaded a lot of content to her Instagram recently supporting the Obamas, the Standing Rock Sioux. She also shared an image of a Nina Simone quote discussing the role of artists in charged political times.

Dolly Parton

instagram.com

Endorsement status: It doesn't look like the country legend publicly endorsed either candidate (or a third party option), but she did tell CNN she thinks "they're both nuts." She also clarified earlier in the year that she wouldn't endorse a candidate, saying, "I try not to get political."
