Actress Chloe Grace Moretz and singers Katy Perry and Demi Lovato are among the stars set to appear at the Democratic National Convention.
“I am so happy to announce I will be speaking at the Democratic National Convention!” Moretz, who appeared in "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" and "The Fifth Wave," posted on her Instagram page. “Going to be such a beautiful historic day and I can’t believe I have the immense honor of being part of it. Thank you Hillary Clinton!”
Lovato tweeted that she’ll be at the convention:
Actress Lena Dunham, who is also on the star speakers roster, posted an image of her convention-ready manicure.
Moretz also got her nails done in time for the event:
Actress America Ferrera is looking forward to participating and issued a clap-back to anyone who might suggest entertainers don’t belong in the political arena.
“I’m not here as a celebrity, I’m here as a person who has a lot to lose in this election,” she said in an Instagram post. “Please stop telling me to shut up because I’m an actor. I am an American, and like everyone else, there’s a lot at stake for me in this election. I will use my platform and encourage you to use yours.”
