Katy Perry (opens in new tab) is a very new mom to baby Daisy, but that doesn't mean she's holding back from getting out the vote. In an empowering new video shared to her Instagram account, the singer can be seen breast pumping (opens in new tab), saying "Pumped to vote" (I see what you did there, Katy!).

In the footage, Katy is sitting on a chair facing away from the camera wearing pajama bottoms, a dressing gown around her waist, and a nude bandeau top. She then turns to look at the lens, and a breast pump (opens in new tab) is visible. But the purpose of the video wasn't just to normalize breastfeeding and everything that goes along with it—it was also part of a compilation video led by Jane Fonda, encouraging people to register to vote in the upcoming election (opens in new tab).

Posting the video to Instagram, Katy wrote, "Okay so @orlandobloom and I have different views on what it means to get pumped these days," along with the cow emoji. "But whoever said pumping isn’t a sport... I’d like to twist their nipples clockwise for one week straight."

"We’re getting in shape for the race of our lives this November and it has never been more important to #ExerciseThatVote," she continued, encouraging people to check their registration status as the deadlines loom.

Katy is joined in the voting video by Amy Schumer, Kerry Washington, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and more. As well, of course, as OG workout queen Jane Fonda.

"I [don't] even live in the USA but after this video I want to vote!!!" wrote one person. "A politically vocal mom👏👏" added another.

Katy Perry (opens in new tab) and her fiancé Orlando Bloom welcomed their baby girl, Daisy Dove Bloom (opens in new tab), into the world on August 26 (opens in new tab), and the couple are clearly already smitten with their new addition.

"We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter," the new parents said in a statement released by UNICEF, a charity for which Katy and Orlando are both Goodwill Ambassadors.

Since then, Katy has been posting about her motherhood experience (opens in new tab). One particular highlight: When the 35-year-old showed off her MTV VMAs (opens in new tab) "red carpet look" from the comfort of her home (opens in new tab) on Instagram, and she went for full real-life-new-mama-chic: Katy could be seen wearing some comfortable high-waisted underwear over her still-present bump (because it doesn't just disappear like magic as soon as the baby is out!) along with a breast pump bra.

What. A. Woman.

Cat is Cosmopolitan UK's features editor covering women's issues, health and current affairs. newsfeatures and health. The route to her heart is a simple combination of pasta and cheese (somewhat ironic considering the whole health writing thing), and she finds it difficult to commit to TV series so currently has about 14 different ones on the go.
