LONDON — Katy Perry used her Brit Awards performance on Wednesday night to make a not-so-subtle political statement about Donald Trump.

During a performance of her hit single “Chained to the Rhythm,” the Hillary Clinton-supporting pop star was accompanied on stage by giant dancing skeletons apparently dressed as US President Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

The “Trump” skeleton wore a red tie and May wore a red blazer and skirt — similar to the outfits the pair wore when they met last month at the White House.

At one point the two skeletons held hands in another nod to their meeting, where they had a brief, awkward exchange holding hands.

Meanwhile, her background dancers were dressed as white houses — at one point, one of them even fell off the stage.

The song’s lyrics read:

“Are we crazy?

Living our lives through a lens

Trapped in our white-picket fence

Like ornaments

So comfortable, we live in a bubble, a bubble

So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, the trouble.”

It sn’t the first time the pop star has made a political statement against Donald Trump during a performance. Earlier this month, she wore a white pantsuit and a “resist” armband as she performed “Chained to the Rhythm” at the Grammy Awards.

The Brit Awards, held at London’s O2 Arena, proved an otherwise emotional evening.

A performance from Coldplay’s Chris Martin celebrated the life of George Michael, and the British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year awards were given to the late David Bowie for his final record, Blackstar.
